I’m a creature of habit. In fact, some might say I’m a little weird about it. For example, when I go to a restaurant, I usually find one thing on the menu that I like and then I stick with that every time I go. When I go shopping, I mostly just stick to the few stores I like, and I rarely go anywhere else. Granted, I’m probably missing out on some yummy food and some great deals, but my routines work for me, so I don’t care. I learned last weekend that the same can be said about homework routines.
I’ve settled into a fairly good routine for my two classes this semester, and my weekends generally go something like this: I write my assignment for one class on Friday/Saturday and then write the next one on Saturday/Sunday (I know, I know—go ahead and call me “Stacy-No-Fun” or “Debbie Downer”—my husband does). I’m really not sure why, but for the entire semester I’ve been writing my Brand Equity Management paper first—maybe because it requires a little more research and it usually takes me longer to write. Well, this weekend I was having trouble getting started on my paper, so I decided to switch things up and write my Applied PR paper first. BIG mistake! I spent so much time writing the first paper that I got really behind in starting the second one (and my dinner/movie date with Mark didn’t help me out, either). It’s a good thing we have until Monday night to turn in our assignments because I really needed that extra time this week!
My friend Nicole coaches cheerleading. I will admit, I know pretty much nothing about cheerleading, but Nicole has mentioned several times the problems that can arise when changing a cheer routine right in the middle of competition season. After last weekend’s homework debacle, I completely get it. For these last few weeks, I’ll be sticking to my old homework routine. Lesson learned.
On a side note, I want to thank everyone who helped put together Hailey’s swingset. It’s a big hit. 🙂
