College is a constant battle between social life and homework. The hardest part of college (at least for me) is definitely time management and balancing everything properly. Many college students believe a simple way to solve this issue is to lock yourself in your dorm room and stay there until all your homework is done. This method, though it works for some people, is not the move if you want to get the best out of your college career. I'm not saying that putting all your homework off is a good idea, but I am saying that going to new locations to do homework is more beneficial than detrimental.
Doing homework in a lounge or library or outside at a table opens the door for greater opportunities. If you are locked in your dorm room, you limit the opportunities to meet new people and study in different environments. If you go outside or to the library or to a lounge, then you allow yourself to meet other people. Not only is meeting other people a good thing but you could form new friendships that could last a long time or meet someone that could help you with other classes you may be taking and struggling with.
Allowing yourself to escape the captivity of a dorm room allows your dorm room to become a space of relaxation rather than a place you always do homework at. Getting outside allows for an increased mood because it limits the fear of missing out that you may experience if you were always in your dorm room.
Not only is leaving your dorm room beneficial to you as a student but being okay with some procrastination allows for more opportunities. Don't always say no when offered an opportunity to get out and socialize. Sometimes it is okay to put off homework a couple of hours. You will be able to get it done, but you will have also made new memories.
Homework is something that becomes a huge deal In college, but if you learn how to handle it you will be okay in the end. I promise.
