    Week 1, day 1, of getting it together.

    It is actually Monday of week 7...
    I am a first year undergrad Maths student and I haven't been putting the hours in that I really want to. I wish I could blame an amazing social life but all the hours I have wasted have been spent in bed, binge watching mediocre TV and eating junk food.

    My marks on the assignments I have completed so far have been ok, 70-90pc, but everything has been so rushed. I finish a piece of coursework 30 mins before the deadline, regret it, promise myself I will be more organised and then do it all again .

    So today I am making a start on breaking the habits. I have my planner, paper and colouring pens. I am working backwards, and putting aside 4-6 hours for each piece of coursework that is due in the next few weeks. I don't actually know how long I spend on coursework as I scribble notes, lose them and then have to restart but I know the final write up can take a while as I am a messy writer/perfectionist (note to self; start using LaTex!)

    The reason for starting this blog is accountability. None of you know me and I can be completely honest on here, hopefully without the judgement I would get from my family. Fingers crossed I can pull my finger out, I would like a first for all the debt I will be in :cool:

    Week 1, day 2

    Bit of a mixed day , I got off to a really good start this morning. But then an engineer came round (I didn't go to the library and stayed in for him) to fix the boiler. After that I took a break and never got back on track. I have a 9am start tomorrow so will stick in the library after and hopeful be productive. Any one else unable to study at home?
