I was browsing a book called What Successful People Do Before Breakfast by Laura Vanderkam. Now that I am in the routine of school, I notice I can make my fringe hours more purposeful. In the book, Laura gives advice to makeover your morning hours and suggests that you make a list of 100 dreams that can inspire your fringe hours. I was excited to make my list of 100 dreams right away! I feel like I actually have a lot of free time. I immediately put the book on the desk and opened a new document on my computer.
AND that is where I stopped writing this blog post. I decided to check my email. Worst mistake!
I realized my Fall graduate class was supposed to have started already, but there was nothing about it in my email. I casually logged into Blackboard to check and….
I am immediately overwhelmed! I have to read 168 pages by WHEN? I have 2 assignments due FRIDAY? 10 people have already posted on the discussion board?
Well, goodbye fringe hours. I guess I don’t have free time after all.
