Here are five tips!

Everyone, no matter what age or gender, has probably gone through the struggle of having to decide whether to finish studying for their quiz or eat out with the family. Time management may be hard to master, but it's not impossible to do. Here are a few tips to help you start practicing time management:

  1. Get yourself a small planner.

Start managing your time by writing down everything you have to do (and their deadlines) in a planner. Make sure to write it legibly to avoid missing deadlines. It's best to have a small and lightweight planner you can fit into a purse or clutch so you can bring it whatever your OOTD is!

  1. Download a scheduler app.

If you're not the write-in-planner type of person, you can substitute it with a scheduler/planner app. Just like the physical planner, write down the deadlines, the family gatherings, and the barkada hangout sesh. Why not make your phone even more useful than just for social media or researching for homework?

  1. List your daily to-dos.

Aside from planning out the entire month in your planner, you can also write a daily to-do list so you'd know what you have to do until before you sleep. You can write the time frame of each activity as well (e.g. 5:00pm – homework, 7:00pm – dinner, etc).

  1. Go on study dates/hangouts with friends (or your S.O).

Let's face it: school usually takes up a lot of your time which can prevent you from spending time with your friends. But what if you can combine barkada time and acads time? Ask your friends to study with you, even if you have different subjects/courses, that way you can spend time with them and ask for their help (or help them) when needed.

  1. Don't think too much about school during the weekends.

School is only on weekdays for many students, but homework can sometimes take up the weekend. Try and finish the *~easiest~* tasks in between classes and the harder ones after all of your classes so you won't have to do it during the weekend. No to-dos during the weekend means more time to rest or bond with the fam, barkada, or the bae.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
