A Brief (Self-)Reminder on Time Management

This was the first week I was really inundated with a lot of assignments.

Nine Hours of Sleep Every Night

Everyone always craves their good time of rest in their warm, loving beds. Yet late at night, we always struggle with our wearied bodies to stay up a little longer. Soon, the 1 AM mark passes. Yeah maybe my eyes are a bit droopy, but I’ll just finish this one YouTube clip.

Well it has been over a month since the beginning of the Fall semester, and my academic life has completely taken over my social life and sleep schedule (for those who don’t know, I am referring to the academic triangle shown below).
