Good Advice from your PEEPs


Back to School Survival Guide (Part 2)

Step away from the computer. And iPad. And Blackberry. I’ll be the first to admit that my Blackberry runs my life. But at the same time, technology overload can ruin a study session – so shut off your phone, print out your notes (for those of you worried about sustainability, you can recycle them later), and find a place to get your work done. Without the added distractions of Facebook chat, BBM, and email, you’ll be able to think more clearly and focus more intensely on everything you need to get done. And don’t worry, that video of a cute kitten won’t disappear from your Facebook wall if you don’t see it within the first five minutes.
