First of all, let’s be honest here, it’s the summer time, who the hell wants to worry about going to class, group projects and exams when you are clearly supposed to be living your best life.
You barely made it through the spring semester and it’s like, life, school and work are all trying to bring you down.
Have we ever steered you wrong? No.
So let’s get into these tips on how to get through the summer semester.
Remember why you started
Staying committed to this school thing is harddd, especially when you see content creators making millions on YouTube and Instagram.
Why did you decide to go to school in the first place? Maybe you have aspirations of being a nurse, lawyer, teacher etc.
These are the things that are going to help you stay committed when it seems like you have no energy left to study for an exam and lets not mention that if your professor assigns another group project, you just might drop out.
Keep your dreams and aspirations at the front of your mind to give you that extra push when you need it the most.
It’s no secret that the summer semester moves at a faster pace than a normal fall and spring semester. The first test can sometimes be in a couple of weeks and the first assignment may be due next class.
Take a look at your syllabus and get organized. What assignments are due first and how long will it take to complete each assignment?
For example, if you have a research paper due at the end of the summer semester, try researching NOW so that all you have to do is put the paper together later.
Procrastination sucks period, but it especially sucks when you don’t have as much time as usual to do your assignments.
The bottom line? Start working on your assignments as soon as they are assigned.
Keep the end goal in mind
The goal is to graduate, why prolong the process by slacking off and failing a class that you need to graduate?
Nothing will feel better than gracing the stage as all of your close family and friends watch as they hand you your degree for all of the years of hard work you put in.
So, stay committed, be disciplined and stay motivated to finish what you started.
