I’ve always loved the back-to-school season. I’m probably a huge school nerd, but there’s something about preparing for a new semester that I’ve always found both relaxing and exciting.
Whether it’s your first or last semester, preparation is the key to success in college. It’ll help you get through tough times and prepare for the worst. Thankfully, there are things you can do to make sure you start your semester on the right foot! Here are few things that you should do to prepare for a successful semester!
I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve last shared a life update on the blog (almost two months!), and since I love reading those and quite a lot has been going on since my last post in this series, I thought yet another life update was quite appropriate. So here’s what’s been going on in my life since my last post:
If there’s one thing that I hoped for this year is that I would finally bring my blog to the next level, and that starts with reaching my goals for 2017. I’ve never been really good at keeping up with goals, mostly because I totally forget that I had set them in the first place (oops). This year, I want things to be different. This is why I thought that, after each quarter, I would do a little quarterly goal update. This idea helps me remain proactive and ensures that I actually set a strategy towards reaching my goals.
If you haven’t read the last quarterly update, make sure to check it out here as well! So here’s how I’ve done with my goals for 2017 in the second quarter (April to June). View Post
Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to study abroad. Now, what?
Just because you’ve finally received your acceptance letter doesn’t mean it’s time to sit back and enjoy (though you should a little). You thought getting your application ready was hard? Well, be ready to work even harder. Your study abroad application was just the beginning. Now, the real fun begins! (At least for type A planners like me.)
There is a lot to do to prepare your semester abroad. Between travel plans and academic choices, you might not know where to begin. Don’t worry! I know what it’s like. If you’re not sure where to head into first, here are a couple things that should figure on the top of your checklist. View Post
If there’s one part of being a college student that I hate, it’s studying. I mean, I don’t mind going to class, learning new things, taking cute notes, organizing my planner, and all that jazz, but studying? I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. I never seem to find proper motivation, and even once I finally get over myself and dive into it, I can never concentrate for long.
That’s why I’m so glad that Diana reached out to me with this blog post! She shares 4 ways that can help you boost your concentration while studying. As someone who can never fully concentrate while studying, I could definitely use her tips! View Post
