Multitasking as a Non-Traditional Student

Copy of MULTITASKING AS A NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENT

When I returned to college in 2013 to obtain my Paralegal Certificate at Manor College, I was a full-time mom and student, part-time fitness instructor, and intern as a Paralegal. In addition, I dog sat and worked part-time in a floral shop.

Where did I find the time? Multitasking and time management. A calendar on my phone was a must (including a paper backup – one time I deleted my phone calendar and needless to say, it was crazy until I could recover it). Ever since then, I use a backup program for my phone called Samsung Kies.

Transferring in 1994

I am a non-traditional college student who has transferred. Currently, I am a full-time paralegal, part-time fitness instructor and single Mom to two girls ages 15 and 12.

I graduated high school in 1984 (anyone remember George Orwell?) and the first college I attended was Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York in 1985. Skidmore College was a small, Ivy League-ish, personal college where everyone knew each other and your professor called you by name. I spent a year there as a Pre-Law Major (Political Economy). As much as I tried to like it, the weather (a lot of snow) and the distance from home (3 ½ hours away) was not for me. I wanted to pursue a career in dance and at 19, it was then or never.
