Teens are overwhelmed, partly because they don’t yet have the skills to manage the unprecedented amount of stuff that enters their brains each day.  – from

“Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them.”

“You can do anything, but not everything.”

― David Allen, (GTD) Getting Things Done for Teens: Take Control of Your Life in a Distracting World


This we was, good. I got all my work I needed done and got 100 percent on my chem test. In this class I thought the directions were very easy to work through.

  • The first thing I have to do is this blog post. I am doing it on Tuesday night. After the blog post tonight, I will write my chem notes for my chem test this week. That’s all I will do tonight because Wednesday I have the whole day to do homework. Wednesday I will start off my day with some coffee. Then I will start working on my 3.2 periodic trends assignment in chemistry. I will listen to music to keep my focus on my work. I have tried the whole timer thing, I’m not sure if I’m doing it wrong or something but it just doesn’t work for me. I like to have quality work and when I set a timer, I always rush. Back to my work, after doing this assignment I will do as much of my English project as I can tolerate… ( The project makes no sense and is really stressing me out.) After that, I will probably stop work for the day and hang out with some friends. Thursday will be a whole new load of assignments I don’t know yet. I wish in every class we knew all the work for the week and we could have the option to get it all done early. I have friends in running start who get all their work and finish it all before Friday so they have Friday off. I WISH. But no, we have 3 zoom calls on Friday so that could never happen for us, regular school kids.



  • I learned how to be more organized when writing my to-do list.
