All over the university, the replacement was both productive and disappointing for me …

I was in downtown Toronto, living with my parents in a suburb about 15 -20 miles from here. Because of this, I have replaced about three hours a day for five years, and I have done it with every form of transportation you can imagine: a car, a train, a bus, a subway, a hand and a knee (well, the latter may be an exaggeration) ..

My worst horror story happened on my last university exam, all time:

  • The subway line was lost because of the notorious snowstorm in Toronto.
  • I had to run back to my car (which I already paid for $6 for parking) and drove 1.5 hours to get to school.
  • I could only be slow, on the road, and not on the highway because of the hour of waiting.
  • A huge block of snow fell on my windshield when I was driving and bowed my windshield (so I had to get out.
  • I had to pay another $25 for a park in downtown Toronto where my school was.
  • I was 1 hour late after a 2-hour examination that I absolutely had to pass to the graduates.
  • You’re going to have to read the end of the story, but if it makes the substitution sound like a nightmare, let me set a record: it’s not usually …

    It was one incident of hundreds. For the most part, my suburban reports were uneven, productive and even rewarding …

    In this post I will pass 18 advice on how you can become a placeholder student. Here’s how you break 18 tips:

    Let’ s forget about it!1. Choose how long you want to spend on learning compared to your friends.

    Since you don’t live on campus, no one’s gonna barge into your room with a question where your roommate is. And there won’t be any unscheduled beer pong sessions at 1 in the morning when you’re studying your organic chemistry …Some people can see it less exciting, but if you want spontaneity, you can always stay in your friends ‘ room. The key point is that your replacement gives you a choice when it’s time for work and party time …

    2. Switching.

    Whether you travel to campus or take public transit, your daily trip is a blocked time period, which you cannot avoid, even if you do not feel motivated that day …

    For example, if you travel or go to school in the school, you can listen to podcasts or recorded lectures. If you take a train like me, you can do a lot.

    3. The balance between school and school.

    Because your parachute is the beginning and end of your day, you can use it as a marker to start and stop your work at school. For example, you can decide that doing school work only between 7:30 am and 4:30 PM, or between your train 8:30 and your 5:30 PM back …

    At other times, you can do whatever you want. You can even take these dates to the next level, choosing not to do any school work in the evenings and on weekends …

    Believe me, it’s possible, because these borders make you sit and concentrate on your work, without the temptation to drag and drag everything over the day …

    4. It is cheaper than living on campus.

    I assume you live with your parents or a cheaper place from school. I also assume you’re either not going to school or that your parents are helping you.

    Being a suburban student can help you.

    5. Catch the show, insensitive.

    As I mentioned in fashion number three, to be able to book your days means that you have a way to help you separate your school work and the rest of your life …

    To give yourself an incentive to look at.

    I will be honest with you, I’m not a disciplined man.But as suburban messages gave me difficulties to work as a pendulum student, I helped me get 4.1 GPA out of 4.33 (about 95%) in the first year of my first year, while swimming …

    Here are some of the tactics I’ve used you can try:

    6. Use your booking directory for a day.

    As I mentioned in the first part of this post, make your mouth on campus productive time. Bring the coffee to the train in the morning if you have to. And on the way home, use it as a way to make it easier to meditate, start reading, or read a book ..

    This tactic is something the author and Professor Cal Newport. He has one.

    7. Learn from the space.

    I’m in favor of public transport, because you can work on trips (and you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot). And make a statement and work at school.

    For me, I get it.

    You can also use applications of type

    9. Clip-ends.

    You can also use the replacement.

    I do this by downloading all my letters to Apple Mail or Gmail on my phone before I leave school and then clear them on the way home ..

    10. Back on the back.

    It’s one of my favorite parts to be a pendulum student: I have a appointed.

    Depending on how tired I am, I may or may not need mine.

    11. Bring the flashlights to remember when you are waiting.

    The memory is my existence. I have a good memory, but I just don’t like to sit and do it. By doing this, when I’m waiting for a train or bus, he feels productive, and I don’t have to sit at my desk to do this …

    Most of the students on campus are close to each other 247, so they naturally close. Like a substitute student, but you’re not on campus all the time. Here are 7 ways you can work with this …

    12. Sports.

    It’s a great way to meet people in your major and in other matjors, because nothing brings people together like a common enemy. If you’ve never played a sport in your life.13. Intensive network.

    Specify one day to get coffee (or cookies!) 1: 1 with people, and then schedule people back to intersect, and people meet each other …

    So you start to build a circle of people who know and (fingers scraps) want to hang out with each other …

    Pro tip: Send follow-up information to people after meeting with them, asking them to introduce you to someone cool so you can get to know people about cookies or coffee. Something like that.

    14. Sleep in the field of friends (but not too often).

    Assuming you used tips 12 and 13, besides talking to classmates, it’s a simple way to get experience on campus without costs …

    If there is a party or event on campus, ask your friends if you can stay in their place and hang out, but be sure to be a guest and not to interrupt you!For example, I have a close friend – let’ s call her Abby, who stayed at night with someone else – let’ s call her Beth. Now Beth and I have each other, let her own Christine …

    When Christina and I had dinner, I mentioned that I heard that Abby was staying at Beth’s. Christine made her face. “ Yeah, it should have been one night, because Abby’s got exams. But it was two, and she’s still there. And Beth doesn’t know how to kick her out. “Whew. Don’t be Abby …

    15. Output plan

    On Thursday or Friday, when you see that your schedule is open on Saturday, don’t think just to play.

    16. Campus events.

    Most things happen in the evenings, in any case, so if you’re okay, you’ll get to home a little later, then you’ll have all the events you can visit!

    17. Organize the events yourself.

    For example, if your friends don’t know each other, try getting 3-4 of them together to see the movie that you all want to see, have dinner later, and-BOOM-you just created a new team to hang with …

    It doesn’t have to be a huge thing – even a simple barbecue in the backyard or a brunch in someone’s place would still bring your friends together …

    18. Keep talking to people from where you live.

    One hidden advantage of being a pendulum student is that you have twice as many possible acquainteens and friends. For example, I spend most of my weekdays at school with my high school friends, and then spend Friday nights and weekends with friends from my church at home …

    You’ll get a large part of it and stay in touch with other pendulum students, perhaps even visit friends at other universities …

    Placeholder students.

    If you are on the fence trying to decide whether you should live in a dormitories or at home, I hope this post will help you decide because, despite the ridiculous day that I had on my last exam, the good news is that I (barely) passed course and voiced …

    Really, it was an incredibly stressful way to end my derry career, but the truth is, the replacement is not as big as you think …

    In fact, for some people, replacement can have more meaning than residence, especially if you need a structure a day to be disciplined. Who knows? Maybe all this time, spending a trip there and back can help you better at school!
