Balancing Act: Boos and Books
Pop culture has developed a term or more so a term of endearment that has replaced the usual ‘boyfriend/girlfriend’ with a shorter and catchier version-‘boo’. With ranging hormones it is inevitable that there will be crushes, puppy love and for some, a relationship with their boo.
Balancing a relationship with the opposite sex and your studies ought not to be difficult. Truthfully, high school and college are more than just books and lectures, but also about maturing, learning responsibility, and building all kinds of relationships. It’s therefore important to know how to nurture these relationships while also being diligent with school work.
Here are a few tips on how to balance you’re boo and the books:
Keep A Schedule
Yes guys, a schedule! It is advisable that you have a journal of sorts and write down everything you have to do for the day. Block every single hour, even if you block an hour to hang out with friends, or to take a nap. This way you’ll always be organized, stress free and able to relax. All you have to do is glance at your planner, and it will tell you what’s next!
Respect Your Boo’s Studies
It is absolutely necessary for both parties to respect and understand the others academic needs. There are some subjects/courses that require more studying and homework than others. If both of you have the same level of homework, then respect should come naturally. But if one of you have quite a bit more studying to do, then the other might begin to feel alienated. In cases of the latter, just remember that this phase of your like is temporary, its stuff you have to do, so later you can do what you want to do!
Make it Count!
When the two of you do get to spend time together, make it count. Whatever you decide to do, try to squeeze the most out of your precious time together, because you both know that it’s tough to get quality time!
