Getting ready for the semester

The Fall Semester has officially started and I'm back to being a student again. Well, a student and lab rat I guess. Aside from my experiments, I'll be taking two major subjects, a paper study, and a Korean language class. I must say those subjects are nothing compared to my previous loads in UPLB as an undergrad but taking subjects while conducting experiments is a different thing. So to make my heavy-loaded and complicated life more organize and bearable, I'll be taking some important lifestyle changes.

Live a healthy life
  • Make sure to sleep seven hours a day. Yes, 7 is the magic number! 
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • As much as possible, don't skip breakfast.
  • Exercise during Saturdays or Sundays.
Be excellent in my lab works
  • Record! Record! Record everything being done in the experiment, even the mistakes!
  • Know what the process is all about.
  • Complete the tasks given, especially the papers, on time (or even before the deadline).
  • Learn to budget time. Avoid cramming. Make a schedule of the tasks to be done and follow it.
Be excellent in my studies
  • Read! Read! Read the reference books and work books.
  • Understand the lessons by heart.
  • For my Korean language subject, make sure to read the student book in advance.
Be more sociable to other people
  • is still thinking how to...

Wish me luck!=)
