I have been getting a lot of feedback this past week pertaining to time management. A lot of my classmates explain that they wouldn’t be able to juggle Walden University with Saint James School of Medicine. I honestly have to say, some days I wonder the same thing myself, but it is all about time management and what you do with your free time. I don’t have a regular schedule that I follow, but I have figured out that every time I have a free moment that I should use that free moment to do something constructive. I will admit that some days are more productive than others such as Sunday when only studied for about two hours total and I was in the library for six hours. It’s all based on how you utilize your extra time.
With Walden, I usually have a discussion and an assignment due each week. With it being block week, this time management is a little bit tougher. Honestly this week, I will attempt to get my assignment finished between now and tomorrow so on my study day, I can focus primarily on my coursework. Little perks such as that are always very helpful in the long run. When I am not proactive, I usually end up forcing myself to race against the clock to finish my assignment in about a few hours and turn it in before the deadline. I still can write a 5-page paper pretty fast, and I thank my undergrad for that. My opinion on time management of the two schools boils down to how you prioritize yourself and time management. A lot of studying is involved in medical school, and the discussion posts are based a lot on personal experience to justify your reasoning of the concepts with the masters degree. I use the books from Walden, which are shipped to the school each semester as a guide. I hope this helps anyone who has questions about this matter.

Next, I have to get the car licensed because the previous owner wants to keep her license plate. So that’s apparently around another $250 US. I forgot about how much stuff like this cost. But I will keep you guys updated on that. I must say that my independence that I now have been completely worth it. I was able to attend the health fair that we had at the grocery store on Saturday that was sponsored by the Anguilla Red Cross. We had a great time and below is a picture of a few friends and me. I must say that we look very diverse!
