Looking Back: To be quite honest, this semester hasnt’t been going as good at it should be. I’ve been mostly coasting in all of my classes, and it hasn’t come back to haunt me yet, but I know it could. I know I can do better, but without the looming fear of failure to motivate me, I’m having a hard time getting things done. But every day is a new day and a new opportunity to act differently. The only problem I really have with my weekly routine is sticking to it, so I’ll be working on that from here on out. I don’t have a problem getting the reading assignments done, but I’m not sure if that’s because they’re at the beginning of the week or if it’s because I love reading. Regardless, I need to apply myself more to the end of week assignments and start doing some more extra credit each week to catch up.
Looking Forward: I think that for the second half of the semester, I need to focus more on myself, which probably sounds a little weird. But I know that recently I’ve been trying to have it all. Every college student has seen this triangle
I have been trying to do everything and it’s honestly a bad idea. I think I need to take some time for myself and refocus before I go back out there and try to balance all three of these things again. Luckily for me, it’s fall break; that’s always an excellent time for some much needed R&R.
