It was crucial and important that I remind myself to get prepared for a tideous month ahead, so I strategized how to mange my activities here on Hive alongside with my Academics. I had initially filmed this vlog three weekends back and planned on posting it the weekend after. But after going through the week I realized, there was absolutely no way I was going to be able to achieve all I've planned with so much school activities lines up with few weeks, so I refrained from posting it. But today, I just woke up feeling the urge of posting the video. I've been sacred of posting this vlog because I knew I was going to fail in achieving my plans, but I don't feel that way anymore. Seem I woke up today feeling great 🙂
Initially, I had plans to keep grinding hard with Hive during this period while I'm in school so my blog doesn't become inactive like it did the previous time I was in school. The previous time, I had to completely ignore my Hive blog because I resumed back to school and there was a lot of rush in activities. This is because the academic session in recent times hasn't really operated smoothly as a result of the corona outbreak which caused us to go on a long break and also the ASUP strike that occurred which put a stop to lectures. So when we're asked to resume back to school for lectures, we will be left with very little time left to round up with the semester and there would always be a rush to cover up all activities that was planned for a 13 weeks semester within 2-4 weeks. So it's always hard to multitask during this period.
That's why most times I end up ghosting on Hive and all focus are channeled to my Academics, not because I want to, but because school activities are just too much that it gets overwhelming and I get consumed by it. But this time around I tried to change the narrative which still ended up being impossible. Although this time around I still find myself being able to get active on Hive during the weekends. I try to create one or two contents during the weekend and interact with few individuals in order not to go dead and retain a little activeness on my blog.
My wildest dream of being an active blogging student (i.e. actively blogging while in school 😜) are still yet to be fulfilled. I won't be posting at least once daily as previously stated in the video, my plans on getting more active with the #hivenaija
community would still slowly manifest. And every other days I find the space and energy to make a post, I'd most definitely do. Lastly, shutout to @starstrings01
and several other Nigerian hivers who are students. You all deserve to be praised for your effort and ability to maintain your Hive activities with Academics.
