Time managment wrap up

Carlos Mariscal

Many students typically begin to fall behind a couple weeks in to the semester, and laziness starts to set in; time management is a big influence to this.

It’s up to the students to manage their time wisely in a manner where it wont hurt their academics.

I know I’m a student affected by this, but then again I was able to handle it well.

Many students get home from a long day at school and the last thing on their mind is the homework that they were assigned.

“I’ll do it later… after this show… after this commercial… after this nap,” is something they might tell themselves in order to put off completing their homework for the current moment.

I also feel it’s just more than laziness. Social networks also hurt us students.

Distractions such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, have students finding themselves spending more time planning their social lives instead of staying up to date with their classwork.

It seems many students nowadays put their social life ahead of their school life, which is a recipe for failure.

But social networks aren’t the only distractions for students.

I also know hard it is to fulfill the role of being a sibling, friend or being in a relationship while working and going to school full time.

It can be extremely tough.

More than half of Cerritos College students are affected and there is no practical cure, it all depends on the student to make the right decisions.

Distractions don’t have to be a bad thing; it’s always good to reward yourself for hard work, I know I do.

It all comes down to students to organize their time outside of school in such a way where it won’t affect their educational success
