Ever wonder how other students manage to work a job, feed a family, walk a dog, answer discussion questions, manage to have clean clothes to wear (ahem, most days), put together a PowerPoint presentation and stay sane? We do stay sane, don’t we? Sure we do, but we all have different lives and different ways of staying organized and getting our coursework done.
This post is the first in a series that takes a look inside the life of an iSchool student. Since this is the first post, I’ll take you inside my schedule to see how I take care of a family of five, write the iStudent blog and work my way through my MLIS degree. I rarely take classes that require very many synchronous sessions, so that doesn’t dictate my schedule much. I live in Northern California and in the same time zone as SJSU, which is convenient if I need to attend a Collaborate session live, but that is really rare. I typically rely on recordings to get my work done.
All that said, here’s peek into my life. Enjoy!
