Wow, I can't believe that I'm already a senior in college. It seems like yesterday since I was wondering around campus lost, sad and confused and now I'm a senior who hopefully has an idea about where I'm going. (JK I'm not even graduating on time) However, even though I'm going to be a senior for the next year and a half, I still have a laundry list of things that I hopefully will get accomplished this next semester.
- Have fun: This past year has been a formula of working two jobs, and class. This semester I still have two jobs but it's nowhere near as demanding as it was last year. So I want to make sure that I make time to have fun and do things that I actually will enjoy. Make time for fro yo dates and dinners with friends. Make time to read with a cup of iced tea, and for blogging. I believe you are the one in complete control of your schedule, so make sure that you schedule time to breath.
- Visit friends. I've been meaning to visit my friend Griffin at Vassar for the past year, and now I actually will try to make time to go see it. I've seen so many great pictures of it, and the campus is beautiful. So, this semester I actually want to see it. (And if I do go, make sure I get amazing pictures for Instagram.)
- Do the best I can. Sometimes I'll think my best isn't good enough. It really is. So, if I'm working really hard and I need a break I'm going to take it. I want to make sure I'm doing the best that I can, not rushing through it. I want to keep my status on Dean's List, but I also want to keep my sanity.
- Remember that everything is going to be okay. Sure, there's going to be days when everything really sucks. However, the thing about bad days is that they only last 24 hours. When I have a bad day, I will try to remember that it doesn't last forever and to take extra care of myself.
What are your goals college students?
