i think i need to add another tip to surviving an intensive week:
4. Ensure you have enough time the week after to complete all the work from the intensive week – this time around it has been particularly stressful with 3 papers due in 2 weeks after the intensive week plus starting up our Statistics class. Even though I worked really hard to stay ahead of the game, I still feel that I’m playing catch up in all areas.
Oh well. One paper down (plus an Statistics assignment during the 1st week of class), two more to go plus a second Statistics assignment. Wow. Oh and a full-time job on top of that. One of my classmates said it feels like an intensive month as opposed to an intensive week.
