Time Management

(Overcoming Challenges, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
 Nick Capuzzi I cannot believe it, but somehow a quarter of fourth class year has gone by already. It has been approximately 120 days since I showed up on R-Day, and what a busy four months it has been.

Fourth class year is one big exercise in time management. During Swab Summer, we were told where to go, what to do, and when to do it. But during the academic year, it is totally up to you. You set yourself up for success, or failure, depending on the choices you make. Fortunately, you take an introductory course called BEARS that helps you learn about time management.

My day takes me to trainings, classes, meals, sports practices, and club meetings. Somewhere in between them I have to find the time to do my homework and study. As you can see, it is not always easy. But then again, it is the Coast Guard Academy, and it is not supposed to be.
