Time Management and My Life as a Nontraditional Student: How I Did It
What Time Savers I Draw On?
First, having been a single parent of 4 for many years I was already a home time management expert. I'm talking like 10th degree apron belt here.
Second, I had the best behaved children in the world. Now that was a lot of work all through the years but it was so worth it.
Third, my children had always had chores so everything wasn't on my shoulders.
Fourth, I had taught the kids early to cook. So, if I had to study I simply told them (well in advance) they were Chef-for-such-and-such-night and they planned what they wanted to cook including making their ingredient list and making sure we either had what was needed or the items were put on the weekly grocery list. Also, we used things like leftovers and batch cooking.
Fifth, while this may not seem a time saver at first if you'll follow my reasoning you'll see it actually is a very big one. I really got to know myself. I had to learn, and quickly, what worked for me and what didn't. What pushed me forward and what held me back. What energized me and what drained me.
However, None of These Things Were Overnight Endeavors
I'm sorry to tell you but all of these not only took work but they were processes. If you'll look up the word "process" in a thesaurus you'll see equivalent words such as: procedure, course, development, progression, method, practice, manner, and activity. In other words, something that's ongoing... as in takes years and years and years.

  • Time Management and My Life as a Student: How I Did It
  • I was a student for many more years than I care to admit. That's because it can take significantly longer than normal if you: Change majors a few timesDon't always attend full-timeGet kicked out for 2 semesters because you're pregnant and there's a rubiola outbreak but you can't take the Rubiola shotFollowing undergraduate graduation take a year to take graduate classes to see what may interest you, and Finally decide on a graduate program in which you're a 'nontraditional student' thereby automatically earning you an extra year in core coursework
  • Yep... the years can really add up.But, then again, so can the knowledge and experience. And those are two things I was great at... being a student and learning.
  • I earned my Bachelor's Degree in December 2005 with a 3.98 GPA and my Master's in December 2009 with a 3.88. I was 39 and 43, respectively. The only reason I point that out is because making those grades took some serious studying and to be able to have that time available for studying took some serious home time management.
  • During those last 6 years (I already had my first 2 years under my belt) I alternated between only having 2 kids at home… and they were full-time unschoolers… and the older kids bouncing back with their families including very little ones. So I would have anywhere between 2-3 of my own kids and 1 or 2 grandkids usually infants and toddlers.That's a depiction of a nontraditional student if I ever saw one.
  • What time savers I draw on? There were several that I either already possessed or quickly uncovered that helped me succeed.
