Back-to-School Study Bootcamp for Spring 2014: Day 2

Day Two

I found it a little harder to stay focused today than yesterday.  I have this whole analysis worked up in my head as to why the second day would be harder, but the simple explanation is that I didn’t sleep well last night.  I’ve been beset with that mixture of panic and excitement that accompanies the start of term.  I had another day of listening to lectures and reviewing class notes.  I took some notes during lecture this time.  I feel warmed up for working problems tomorrow.  My main goal for tomorrow will be to get my study hours in earlier in the day.  I will say before 6 p.m.  This way I won’t be in such a rush to post before midnight

So, here are my numbers:

Differential Equations – 90 minutes. Listened to Lecture 2 while taking notes.
Physics – 60 minutes.  Listened to Lecture 2 while taking notes.
Organic Chemistry – 60 minutes.  Listened to a bit of lecture but mostly did a light review of notes for Chapters 1-5 from first semester organic chemistry.
Workout – 60 minutes. 25-minute exercise routine with squats and light upper body work; 35-minute walk.
