As a student, what do you spend your time doing? Time is free, but it is priceless.
A general quote says “You cannot own it, but you can use it, you cannot keep it but you can spend it, live, love and laugh.”
As a student, how do you spending your time? There is time for everything, there is time for going to class and for a student who misses class how is he or she going to pass?
Even if they do, they won’t have deep knowledge about what the course is all about because in class the lecturer would have explained deep into details or even give out examples that would help students understand the course much better.
Which means, there are times we acquire knowledge and there are also times where our knowledge will be tested.
How then will we show and prove to the world that our time was spent well?
Procrastination is an enemy of time and students who procrastinate is doing that at his or her own detriment – not good at all. It is just like the saying of the wise ‘ time waits for no one ‘ so if you don’t do what you have to do now time will change and another thing will come up and you will be stuck doing multiple things at the same time, that is if you can.
True, as students, if you don’t prepare for your examination on time if you don’t start reading on time; then you will be stuck with fear of examination, fear of failing, writing the examination and balancing other aspects of your life. You will be stuck and feel unbalanced.
So it is advisable to start preparing for whatsoever you may face in life, even if it comes unexpectedly. You will be fully prepared to tackle it down. It is not too late to start preparing, make good use of your time, especially on campus and you won’t regret it.
