All around the country schools are starting up again. Students are buying their school supplies and selecting “cool” backpacks with their parents, while teachers are organizing their final lesson plans, and preparing their classrooms for a swarm of children on the first day. All in all, it’s a busy – and tough – time for most.
I myself am beginning to work again. I am definitely not looking forward to all of those exams and assignments I’m going to be getting. But I am excited to be working with all of my peers who I haven’t seen for a while now! It’ll be fun to catch up with old friends, and yes, collaborate with them on our many many shared assignments.
Besides the struggle of school work though, it really is the balance between extra curricular activities and academics that you need to watch out for. There needs to be a healthy balance between the two, for your life to be manageable. Trust me, I know how unmanageable things can get without a proper balance :).
If you need help achieving this balance, whether you’re a child or an adult, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Sometimes, children just need tutors or other forms of assistance to get back up on their feet. Likewise, sometimes adults need a break from work by having a few basketball lessons here and there. There’s an easy way to get any of those and make the process much, much easier – PupilMentor. By obtaining a free account, you can locate teachers and instructors within your area easily!
Do this for yourself or your child, and make your lives more manageable during the school/work year 🙂
