I had read the book Becoming A Master Student and it gave me an ideal of creating a reading/studying plan for my business law college class. In the future everytime I need to read a chapter or assignment, I am going to use the “Muscle Reading” technique. It is set-up in a 9 step strategy;
step 1; Preview
step 2: Outline
step 3: Question
step 4; Read
step 5: Underline (maybe or use page markers)
step 6: Answer
step 7: Recite
step 8: Review
step 9: Review again
With a little time and practice, I am going to gain some knowledge and valuable information. This require lots of skills and energy of mine time.
I created a time management plan that is for spring 2009. It has 4 1/2 hours for studying on Mon, Weds, Friday and 7 hours on Tues and Thurs. What I’ll miss, I’ll make up on the weekend.
The day started out cold, I walked the neighbor’s dog and frozen my hands and feet. It is still only 62 degrees in my apartment. That forces me to take breaks in my bed with a warm blanket. Around lunch I fix a can of chili and took 1/2 a pain pill. Did some internet search on Time Value of Money for my “Principles of Finance” studies. It will take some repeated effort to understand all of it. But I did find what the symbol means, the summation symbol, a large upright capital Sigma means summation of number series. I might need a new calculator.
Walked the dog again, she is finally starting to eat alittle. I believe she was nervous from missing her owner, who went away for a few days. Her and me took a afternoon nap and warmed up.
In the evening, I read my business law books, watch the Casablanca movie, and fixed chicken noodle soup. I then did some research about Bamboo Steamers, I think I might get one.
This is how I spent my Christmas. Alone again, no human contact, no phone calls.
Is there anyone out there?
