Today I'm talking about actual logistics when it comes to preparing for college.
These are coming from a commuter's perspective, but most are general ideas that apply to all students. However, you should still definitely check out Skylar's and Ash's posts to get their take.
Since I am living at home, I don't have to worry about move-in day (yay!). But I do have to think about how the heck I'm actually getting to school every day, since I can't just jump out of bed and walk across the street. So I took a few days to see how long exactly it would take to get from front door to campus. (Answer: 1 hour. More on this lengthy time in a bit.)
I've been thinking about how I'm going to deal with blogging and college put together. I already have a bunch of posts scheduled three weeks in advance, so I'm hoping that I can continue to blog rather regularly, since I have that bit of leeway. But I know for sure that my blogging pace will slow down a bit, and that's all to be expected.
At first, I was worried that with my new busy school schedule, I'd have to cut down on reading. Last year, I barely read three books every month.
But then I realized - I'm not driving to school anymore. I'm taking the train. Which means that I have that extra time while I commute to read! (Or do homework. But probably read.)
So, I think that though my schedule is busier than last year's, I will probably read more books! How exiting.
Whether you're in school or at a job, how do you fit your reading (and/or blogging) time in?
