Learning something new every day!

About Me...

In June 2007 I decided to look into returning to school for my Bachelor's degree. I had been managing okay with my Associate's degree, but the idea of moving back home [South Florida] without more education under my belt was not so appealing. By the end of July I had started my first class. Two years later I am five classes away from completing that degree and my oldest child is about to start her college journey.

What I Learned Wednesday - OH CRAP - I'm Late!

Join the fun, post what you learned this week, and link up below. The code for the image is located in my sidebar. All I ask is you link back to this post. Oh, and make sure you link to your post and not your blog in general, okay?

Technically it still is Wednesday and I am not late. I do like to have my WILW post ready and scheduled to go first thing in the morning. I know, I apologize. You were waiting for my post all Tuesday night and when you woke up this morning - NOTHING. Sigh.

There is an old saying:
Why put off until tomorrow that which you could do today
My daughter, Megan is good at keeping with this saying. She makes sure all of her homework or other necessary to-do's are done before she goofs off and hangs out with her friends or gets drawn into a good book. She does not worry about last minute scrambling.

Me? Well, I have one class a month. My last class required a 500-word essay each week. This was due by midnight Saturday. When did I write my paper(s), you ask? Saturday. Oh, yes I did. Sometimes these papers were not written until Saturday evening. You read that correctly. Can you say - procrastinate?

Well, that is what I did with this post, too. I procrastinated. More importantly, I forgot. I procrastinated so much that I actually forgot Wednesday was looming and my post did not get written. Until just now.

Now, you may be asking, what did I learn? I learned I need to create a schedule so I can better manage my time. I need to actually use my schedule once it is created. And, this is the most important lesson, and I may actually learn I have more time to do those things I want to do and those things I love to do.

What have you learned this week? Grab the button from my sidebar, then add a link to your post below using MckLinky. Not sure how to link up? Leave a comment or send me an email (or both) and I will happily walk you through it.
