I think it finally hit my why I've been struggling so much on Mondays. Basically, everything for my classes ends up being due by Friday, which leaves my weekends potentially free of any work.
So, instead of getting ahead of notes or any other homework that isn't due until Tuesday, I spend my weekends doing absolutely nothing except catching up with friends and family and relaxing. But, since that is basically 2 and a half days of doing no school work whatsoever, by Monday, I'm shocked with how much is on my plate. I get up at 7, have class from 10-5, then have the rest of the night for homework.
With such little time to spare, I end up going into a panic mode. I usually try to keep a nice balance and prioritize my homework evenly throughout the week, but on Mondays, that seems to go out the window. I super prioritize and basically do nothing but homework until I'm done, or have to wait until the rest can be done (like right now). The whole process is usually an hour or two and takes about half the time that I normally would take, simply because I'm panicked that it won't all be done in time. (Ah, the life of a procrastinator)
Have you ever gone into panic mode while studying? Or is it just me...
