Almost the end of the first semester (and until all the Christmas excitement can really begin) and I’ve got so much to do: 3000 words essay, 1500 words essay, gigantic grant proposal, answer peer review and… I can’t even remember but there is definitely something else!

Have you ever been in a similar situation that you had so much to do and didn’t even know where to start?  Oh gosh, I hate deadlines. I officially hate them.

But hey, I’m a Masters student now, so I shouldn’t complain, right? I’m going to pull myself together, create a plan for each and every one of these assignments, arrange meetings with my lecturers for any questions I might have and finish them in advance, so I have time to submit them for grammar checking to the always-amazingly-helpful English support team at our uni.

I hope I will stick to this plan… because, to be honest with you, I’m often a last minute person, who starts the work well in time, but once I figure out what I should write, I’ll just leave it there, and come back to finish my work a bit too late (NOT recommended). So, I have BIG respect for all those students who actually manage to submit assignments in advance! If you have any tips for me that I could use, to be just a little bit like you, please, please let me in on your secret :)

PS. Good luck with your assignments everyone!
