I can’t believe that college is just flying by – after this semester, I’ll be halfway done with my undergrad career!
I am equal parts excited and nervous for this upcoming Spring, as this is lined up to be one of my toughest semesters yet. I’ll be taking Differential Equations, Organic Chemistry, and 2 Mechanics classes (yikes!), and I have found that amidst high amounts of stress, goal setting & planning do a pretty good job of keeping me sane. Here’s a peek inside my journal at some of the goals I’ve set for myself this semester!
Complete work in advance [all semester!]
Typically in my more problem-oriented classes, I start off really strong in completing my problem sets long before the due date, but as the semester wears on I tend to find myself slacking off and waiting for the work to pile up before I completed my assignments. This semester, I hope to maintain the “lead” I have on my homework, as I think it will help me tremendously increase my free time!
Maintain regularity in my blog posts
Blogging is a whole new thing to me, and while I am super excited to start posting more regularly, I am also really nervous that I will have to put it on the back burner to focus on school. In this upcoming semester, I plan on using my beloved Bullet Journal (+ Trello, which I just started using!) to sort out all of my posts and make sure I never miss an update.Develop a workout schedule
Last semester was the most active I have been in a while, as I not only started going to the gym regularly, but I also started a yoga class for college credit! I found that working out can actually be enjoyable, and I am excited to incorporate it into my weekly plans next semester. I hope to put some time aside at least 3x a week (if not more) to work out, because it is super rewarding and relaxing.Find more time for myself
College is no joke; between balancing classes, extra-curricular activities, and a social life, I often found myself constantly running around with no time left for myself. This semester I want to be more productive and organized so that I have more time to do the things that I enjoy – read a book, watch Netflix, and write!Get a 4.0!
I was so close this fall to getting a 4.0, and I think the spring semester could be my chance to finally reach this long-standing goal of mine! While I know it is going to be hard work, I know that I am capable of it.
I can’t wait to look back at the end of May to this blog post and see what this semester brings!
