It’s good to see you again everybody. It’s 2009 and I am feeling fine!!! Today’s lesson will be more focused on something that I myself will need to master in the coming months.

As you may know I am a graduate student wrapping up my MA in political science. Because I work 9-6 during the week, getting ready for my comprehensive exam and my class on Tuesday night is not always the easiest of tasks. Coming home to an organized collection of books and knowing exactly what I need to review for the next class or study session would be ideal.

Check out my latest book and bust through that procrastination! Available as a paperback, an audiobook and an ebook on Kindle but NO KINDLE NECESSARY. Enjoy!

However, after a long day I am sometimes unmotivated and likely to get lost in an episode of Seinfeld or The Simpsons. Oh, it’s also really hard to avoid happy hour.

So what does this mean? Well, for anyone out there who is finishing school or who needs their kids to be more organized, let me give you a few tips that I sometimes find helpful and we’ll get through this together.

Let’s say you have class tomorrow and you want to be sure you don’t miss a beat. Participating actively will always help your final grade.

My first suggestion is to review your readings due the next day, but also glance over your notes from last time. This seems like a simple recommendation but it’s the little things that will help you as a student the most.

Secondly, where you do schoolwork in your house needs to be a neat and tidy area. This is why living with an organizer is extremely beneficial because Nealey constantly reminds me not to have my books and notes scattered around the apartment. This is good for her because our place looks organized but it’s also good for me because I won’t lose anything that is important to my class.

Lastly, keep an organized school bag or backpack. Whatever it is that you carry your books and notes around in should always be kept neat. Do your best not to throw food or drinks into the same compartment as anything important. An explosive Yoo-hoo or a crusty sandwich can make for a long class or a messy study session.

Now, take these small tips and go stimulate scholarship. I hope these recommendations with give you many days of hard earned straight A’s. Bon Chance!!!
