So…there’s only 2 more weeks left of classes. Another week after that for finals. Then it’s winter break! I know I’m not the only one that has presentations, papers, final projects, and exams piling up one after the other. But before you let loose – let’s get down to some helpful tips for these last few weeks!
Tip #1: Get Organized
Organization is a factor that either makes you or breaks you. By having it, you’re more than likely to stay on task. By not having it, we all know you’re going to prioritize binge watching Netflix with a glass of wine and popcorn by your side. Earlier this semester, I recommended using a planner. Check out that blog post here. If you haven’t started, use one til the end of the semester. You’ll thank me later!
Tip #2: Ask for Help
I know the semester has been long and all you want to do is get through it. But that doesn’t mean you have to go through it alone! Our professors are there to guide us (though we may think otherwise at times) and want to see us succeed. Oh and you know who else is helpful? YOUR CLASSMATES! Study sessions need to be fully in session.
Tip #3: Keep your health in mind
There are way too many stories my friends tell me of them pulling all nighters, not eating properly, or even forgetting to eat! I’m not telling you NOT to do an all-nighter because trust me, I’ve been there but if you can prevent it – try to get SOME sleep. Eat some REAL food! Real food may mean some McDonald’s one night but hey, don’t let it be a coffee with 2 expresso shots and some chips.
I could go on and on about different tips to get you through but I trust that these will help keep you motivated. I’m chugging along right with you. With that being said, I wish everyone the best in closing out the Fall 2018 semester strong!
As always, thanks for reading & ’til next time! 🙂
