1 Month Check In

Spring semester is about 4 weeks in and midterms are looming in the next few weeks...so how is Marissa Ponder-Bowen doing? Well I'm doing just fine. I feel much more adjusted to Cal in my second semester. It's nice to have a rough idea of what to expect. I've added an extra 7-12 hours a week of work to my schedule and made climbing more regular. Last semester I barely made time to go to Ironworks and have made it a priority in my week now. Instead of thinking if I have time I'll go, I've put into my schedule and worked other things around it. Yes I am busy however setting time aside to do something I really want to do forces me to focus and finish my reading/essays in a timely manner instead of procrastinating.

I have midterms and mid semester projects coming up in the next two weeks. Which means I've been making lists of things I can do now to get started early. I highly recommend this to anyone who tends to put things off or gets stressed around midterms. The two things that I learned from last semester for not cramming around midterms/finals are
1: I started reviewing lecture slides so that when I get my study guides I'm more prepared for them.
2: Read ahead if you have to do summaries. I often do summaries for discussion ahead of time so I have more time that week to focus on my midterm.
