The end of the semester is once again upon us. Whether you are just finishing up your first semester of college or if this is your last, you should be extremely proud of yourself and all that you have done.
I think it is so important to reflect on a semester after it finishes. Looking at how far you have come and the knowledge you have gained is such an amazing thing. You can finally see how the struggle of the last few months has truly been worth it. Look at how much has changed in your life, how many friends you have made and how much you’ve grown as a person in such a short yet significant time period. I really do encourage you to sit down and think about it because it is a huge motivator for the next semester, and really shows that you can accomplish whatever you put your mind to.
Speaking of next semester, if you did happen to fail a course this semester remember to ask your teacher immediately if you are able to take a supplemental, or contact your program coordinator to see how you can make up those credits. Additionally, if you are looking for a credit transfer, PLAR or have any issues with tuition fees or schedules, start looking into those processes now because it will save you a lot of time and stress in January.
Overall though, remember to take a break over these next three weeks. It is important to breath and have some time for yourself. Now is your opportunity to spend time with your loved ones, go out with friends or just lock yourself in a room for days and binge Grey’s Anatomy. Enjoy this time of year, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other winter holidays remember to spend as much time as possible with your family and stay safe. I hope you all have a magical holiday season and a happy new year!
See you all in 2019!
