6. Write a blog
This is one I can relate to quite deeply because most days I would use commute time to write my blog. I found that when I got home I was too tired, and I had other pressing matters, so I decided to make use of my commute time to make sure my blog wasn’t neglected.
7. Edit your posts
I would also use my college commute time to edit drafts I had written. What was great about this was that I would edit with no distractions at all. I would pay for some acoustic background music and just edit my blogs.
8. Review your assignments
You could also review your assignments during your commute. It doesn’t hurt to look at your assignment and edit it one more time before handing it in. I don’t know where I heard that writing is rewriting.
The more you review your assignment, the closer you get to full marks. If you are looking to be a 4.0 GPA student, you can also check out my blog post on how I did that myself. Click the highlighted text to read it.
