Back-to-School Study Bootcamp for Spring 2014: Day 13

Day 13
I have come to value small blocks of study time more. Thinking of getting my minutes in for the day helped me see study opportunities that I might have missed otherwise. When studying on a regular basis, it’s easier to string together 15-minutes study blocks in a way that feels like a continuation rather than starting and stopping. Today was filled with a long list of tasks, so I was grateful that I thought to weave in study breaks.

One more day to get in what I thought would be my minimum minutes.

Numbers for the day:

Before 6 p.m.
Organic Chemistry – 60 minutes; review of stereochemistry.

After 6 p.m.
Differential Equations – 60 minutes; worked problems.
Physics – 60 minutes; worked problems.
Workout – 20 minutes; walk.
