Another semester is over! I just finished my last exam, and I feel so good! I can’t believe it’s already the end. It went by so fast! I’m not to sad to say goodbye to this semester’s classes, ha!

As I’m a in a cooperative program at uni, where I will¬†be alternating internships and classes, I am required to have summer semesters. My internships will only start next winter, but everyone who is a communication major has to take summer classes, in order to finish our degree on time.

Summer 2016 Semester Goals

So I will be going to uni for another semester, starting May 2nd, until the very end of the month of July. I’m not too excited, but some of my classes seem quite interesting, so that’s not too bad. ūüėČ Thank God I have the entire month of August off from uni though! Once again, I thought the best way to kick off the semester was to set myself some goals for the next 3 months!

Productivity is one the things I struggle most with. Especially around finals, I can’t seem to find proper motivation! And even once I find it, I can seem to get anything done. I sit at my desk with the best intentions, and before I know it, a 10-minute study break ¬†turns into an hour of reblogging stuff on Tumblr. Needless to say that I don’t get anything done while doing that.
