    I think sleep is very important to reduce stress and be able to focus properly. I always make sure I get at least 8 hours of sleep. To achieve this, I utilize my time during the day better, which means less time aimlessly staring at Facebook and more time studying. I was surprised how much time I had to spend with friends and do non-nursing related things when I gave up video games, the constant checking of Facebook, and texting/Facebooking while studying.

    I don't do Facebook, can u believe it?
    That does not mean I don't spend time doing no-nursing things, because I do. Should be sleeping instead!

    A word about highlighting. I don't get people that highlight all text in their book. What's the point? I yellow main ideas, sometimes just single words... yet some have time to do the whole book...

    It's my current addiction until school starts!

    I am a social media ADDICT..and it seriously affects my studies AND my sleep lol. I study, only to keep staring at Facebook and Instagram every 10 mins & covering MUCH less material than I'd like to by the time I get sleepy...at which point I get ready for bed and spend at least another 30-45 mins in bed in the dark looking at Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest of course. It's horrible! Once my ABSN program starts though, I am sure that I'll have to simply deactivate every account or I'll never get anything done.

    Haha, the comics always make me laugh... I agree, sleep is incredibly important!! Try to get at least 7-8 hours a night. Trying to study when you're tired is so frustrating and counterproductive.

    During school finding sleep is not a problem, but since its the summer and I live in a college town...well you know I've been having a lot of fun most nights. Better to do it now and get it out of my system before school starts!

    I am guilty to highlighting about 80% of my book.
    However there is a method and a reason to my highlighting madness.
    Its color coded!!!
    Yellow- important topics
    Orange- points my instructor mentioned in lecture
    Pink -nursing interventions
    Blue- medications
    Green- patho
    Made it easier when I had to go back and study for finals.
