Upset with how you did last semester? It's never too late to turn things around!
1. Block out some time for studying/working
If you were disappointed with your grades and study habits, making some improvements in that department doesn't hurt.
2. Set some goals for yourself
Nothing is more satisfying than completing something you've worked hard on. Set some realistic goals for yourself, like going to the gym, or keeping your room clean, even shoot for that A+! Writing them down and keeping them in a place where you can see them everyday is a great way to remind yourself of them.
3. Don't feel you need to do everything
Of course you can join that club or take a super challenging class, but remember, everyone has limits. Don't overdo yourself. You'll have plenty of more opportunities.
4. Make an awesome playlist of your favorite songs
Music is your best motivator. Put together a bunch of songs that get you pumped for the day ahead, or relax you after a long day.
5. Do what makes YOU happy
That pretty much speaks for itself.
If you're a college freshman, you know how exciting it can be...and how stressful. Take everything one day at a time. If this is your second semester, make it a goal not to repeat mistakes you may or may not have made last semester. Think of that as the test run...now, it's the real deal.
I wish all my fellow college kids a great semester, and thanks for keeping up with this blog! I'm glad I get to reach people through my writing.
Speaking of, I have a new book out called Chasing Sam which you can buy here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/alexmunroe
