Thumbs down Horrifying Workload - October 30th 2010, 05:12 AM

Okay...please I really need help here
For this weekend I have so much homework.
I have to do the following:
1. Finish my language arts test
2. Study for my math test and complete the study packet
3. Write a poem like those of Walt Whitman's
4. Do 4 sections of notes for science (and these sections are really long and have a lot of words)
5. Finish my science fair experiment and 4 components of it.
6. Learn the next list of Spanish verbs.
7. Finish my Math Club homework.
8. Practice my violin and do the written assignment with it.
9. Do my private tutor's homework.
10. Do 1 section of social studies notes.

Please, if anyone could give me ANY tips to shorten the amount of time needed for this, please don't hesitate. I really need to get all of this done and even then I won't sleep on Monday or Tuesday anyways.

Also, does anyone know what Cornell Notes are? I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to make them simpler.
Thanks so, so, so much!

I'll be honest here and tell you that it is going to take you a while to get through that list, but everything takes time, and you can do this. Just make a start. It doesn't matter what you do as long as you make a start on something. I've spent hours simply trying to decide on what to do only to realize later that I could've spent the time I spent worrying, working. So yes, make a start.

It would help to sort those things out in the order that you need to have them completed and work through it that way. But, set yourself a time goal and allot yourself a certain amount of time for each activity - make it realistic - so that way you will aim to complete a task in said time. Try not to stress while you're working. That will just distract you :|

I'm not really sure what Cornell notes are. I've never used them myself.. But from what I've googled.. it's a note-taking system that involves dividing a page into two and listing key points on the left and expanding on those key points in the right-hand column. And then you just do a summary of all the points at the bottom. Something like this:

Good luck with the work! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or need help with any particular task.

I think you need to prioritise it. I mean, realistically you may not be able to finish it all. Firstly you need to work on the things that are worth the most. Are these things just generally homework, or are they things that have a percentage of your grade attached? (eg, I;d save the tutors assignment homework till last, or even just don't do it and explain to them that you had too much other things on)

If they have a grade % attached, do the ones worth the most first, and just do the bulk of it. You get the most of your grade in the first half/three quarters of any assignment.

Thanks so much everyone!
I just remembered I have a social studies project to work on, and on top of that, I have to stitch the rips in my Halloween costume. Oh well...one more thing to work on.

I hope you got everything done on time.. Since its the end of the weekend, and its school time again, I'm going to go ahead and close this. Feel free to PM me if you want it reopened.
