read read read. I feel like is all this semester will be about. however I am doing better being filled with school work! :)
I have gone to the gym everyday since sunday for at least 30mins, and have ran 1 mile everyday as well. I am trying my very best to take the good with the ed moments. There is always that little voice in my head saying with school and healthy habits "you cant keep this up" I have realized that I am always full speed the first month or so.. I am going to slow my roll and try to prevent burnout. Does anyone have any college advice? It would greatly appriciated.
I am doing 2 online courses
-Child Nutrition & safety
-Women health issues

3 in class classes
-Photography *got it down ;] cause as many of you dont know I enjoy photography a great amount to view my work go here... www.facebook.com/#!/page

and finally
-couseling class

Any advice on reading, reviewing, test taking, anything to help me prevent burnout is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for sticking with me while I endure this journey once again.

    I am in grad school right now for my Masters in Teaching. It's a one year program and super intense. I had a hard time during the summer to get my work done, to stay on track. Though my biggest obstacle was myself. I am a stress triggered eater. I like to nibble while I work as well. I failed on food, but towards finals I realized that I needed a better way to let go of the stress. Exercise really truly helped me. Though, something had to give, and honestly it was some of the reading. I skimmed some and skipped the one's I didn't think were important. I think it's important to get as much of the reading done as possible, but not at the expense of your sanity.
    Your semester seems really great though! It sounds like you're going to learn a lot about health, which might help you stay on track. Good luck Mae! Keep us posted when you can.

    * For me, attending lectures was crucial. Not that I didn't (and not that you shouldn't) read the textbooks, but the textbooks never wrote the exams. If there are multiple teachers for a class and one of them writes the test. Attend their lecture if possible.

    The "A" students at MIT used to take lecture notes in one notebook, go home and then recopy the notes into another notebook. In this way, they immediately went over what they learned...it was another way to learn and kind of like a mini-study session. If they didn't understand something, they could immediately ask the professor the next class. By reviewing the material each lecture day it made it much easier once test time came around.

    Go to your college's student support center. They can give you the best advice for succeeding. Things have changed drastically since i went. There are notes saved online, etc. So they can tell you what resources, tutoring etc.
