If you’ve been keeping up with my previous blog posts, then you have been hearing a bit about how my classes are going, including how I’m doing with time management. I understand why upperclassmen and advisors alike have emphasized the need to establish a schedule, because now that it’s Week 4, I’m starting to feel the load! Readings are piling up, large papers are being assigned, and it seems like I have less and less time each day to get it all done.

That isn’t merely a coincidence; Hanover is losing daylight at a drastic rate. Well, it’s only three minutes a day, but in the grand scheme of things, this adds up. From the first day I arrived on campus to now, there’s over an hour less of daylight, and it won’t get better until well past the end of Fall Term. Even being from the Northern United States, it catches me by surprise every time; it seems as though I’ll look down to finish reading a paragraph, and then look back up to a completely dark window. As someone who feels the most productive when the sun is at its peak, this can be a bit disheartening. Thankfully, there are redeemable qualities to Hanover’s long, cold nights. I’ve made a list of a few ideas to make the most of them.
