I should have started earlier…

Guess who is taking CIS 4115 – Artificial Intelligence with Robotics, and waited until the last day to complete last week’s assignment that was due on Sunday, this guy! If you have watched this TED talk (which I highly recommend):

Study Groups!

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Tonight I experienced my first ever study group! I feel that I probably should have experienced them before now, but better late than never! I was studying chemistry with two of my friends that are in my dignitas class. We met in the ground floor suites lounge with our backpacks and laptops, sat around the big wooden table and got to work! We sat in the lounge for an hour and a half to two hours doing chemistry. We stayed focused and got quite a bit of the assignment done; the assignment isn’t due until the end of the semester so we have some time, but we want to keep up with lecture. I probably couldn’t have accomplished as much as I did without the help of my study group. No matter what the class or what year you are in in school, study groups are helpful and fun!

Commitment To Learning

I consider myself a pretty good student. I finished my undergrad cum laude and have been doing very well throughout the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. However, I am by no means a perfect student and occasionally I do poorly on an assignment. This happened to me recently with a Neuro Screening and Management Examination group assignment (in case my mom and dad are reading this…I didn’t fail the assignment it was actually a low B). Anyways, Neuro is something I have a lot of interest in and I felt that we (as a group) put quite a bit of time and effort into the assignment and our grade did not reflect that. The professor who graded it left us with comments, but his comments did not appear to justify the grade we received either.

“Due Today = Do Today”

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

This motto can easily become the theme of your semester if you let it. However, I would not recommend it. Part of the reality of being a college student is that you may have 4 hours between classes one day, which feels like plenty of time to do the assignment you didn’t feel like doing the previous day. It can be tough to guage how much time assignments might take, though. Usually, my assignments are new and unlike anything I have done before, requiring a bit of creativity that procrastination can inhibit. My advice is to use your breaks during the day as actual breaks; take time to exercise, eat well, relax, and even get ahead in other classes. Don’t mistake “Due today” for “Do today.”
