It’s that time of year again, this year has been a difficult one but we are wanting to start fresh and put it behind us.
So here is how I am preparing for my second year doing my masters.
It’s no secret that I am completing my qualification while working full time as well as my many other projects so it is important for me to stay organised and structure my time. I have found that giving myself time slots doesn’t work as I either do too little or overbook myself so blocking out days where I can dedicate to my course allows me to be flexible. I use a mixture of online resources such as my COZI app and a written diary to help organise my time more effectively.
One thing I love about starting a new year is the stationary! I found these pads last year from WHSmith’s that are perfect for my uni content. I also stocked up on an arch file for my research papers and a box file for my books. In the coming months I plan on organising my space properly but for now this system works perfectly.
It’s always important to keep all my work backed up so this 4TB external hard drive from Seagate is perfect. It helps me have piece of mind that everything is backed up.
Most importantly is making sure that you have a designated space to do your work with minimal distractions. I shared over on my YouTube channel my new desk I still need some more storage and a new chair but I am in love with my setup and it inspires me to work.
I am so excited to start this year!
