Reading Goals For Back to School
Welcome everyone. It's that time of year again, back to school! This year I will be going back to University for my third year of Microbiology. One of the hardest things for me is to keep my blog going during school, especially around Midterm and Exam time. So for the next school year, I decided to set some goals to stay on track of my reading and blogging.
1. Read on the bus
Since it is too expensive to drive and pay for parking at my University, I take the bus. The bus takes me about an hour in the mornings and an hour and a half on the way back. This could be some prime reading time, especially since I have the kindle app on my phone. The only problem is, sometimes the bus it too full to sit and I'm left standing for the whole ride
2. Listen to Audiobooks on the bus
Most of the time, I listen to music on the bus, since I have to stand or sometimes when I don't feel like reading. I actually found this amazing app though my local library called Hoopla, that lets you download free audiobooks for the month. They have some pretty good titles and I can't wait to dive in.
3. Schedule posts around my midterms and exams.
Around midterms and exams, regular life becomes unimportant. My life consists of studying, and sleeping. Blogging doesn't even come to mind in that very stressful time, and that is precisely when I slip and stop blogging. So this year I've decided to schedule posts ahead of time so I can focus on studying and not feel bad about not blogging once my exams are over.
4. Be a part of more book blitz and cover reveals
The wonderful thing about Book Tour companies, is that they provide HTML codes so that I can quickly post the blitz or cover reveal info. Giving you guys content, since I doubt you'll want book reviews of the textbooks I read.
Are you guys headed back to school? If so, let me know how you juggle blogging and school at the same time!
