how to do well in graduate school?

Postby turtleswim » Sun Sep 18, 2016 11:36 pm

I am halfway through a graduate program for education. I did great with 30 credits of online classes. Now I have to observe a bunch of classrooms and student teach. I am doing my best to book lots of these "intern" like hours. I have to substitute teach to pay the bills. I feel a bit stupid for getting one small loan after finishing 28 credits. I was so exhausted from all the work that I let my guard down and got this tiny loan with a gigantic interest rate. I think if this tiny loan is the only big oops Ive done in the program, I'll probably be OK. Has anyone out there had extreme fatigue from internet work? I think if I pace myself online work does not have to cause any fatigue. I think "detoxing" from the internet helps, ie, surfing, golfing, hiking, etc. Thoughts? I think the internet is addictive. One addiction can lead to others. In my case I did fall victim to the temptation to get an easy loan when I was not on top of my game. I know some folks do get "addicted" to credit cards and such. Luckily I only "binged" once by taking a loan offer. Anyone out there have similar slip ups when the internet becomes a borderline unhealthy habit, like drinking, drugs, porn or other addictions? Thanks.

Were you on drugs writting this? Be completely honest to me? Because it feels really rushed and wierd. If you have unhealthy habits you need to slowly distance yourself away from them.
