As the semester comes to a close, I can’t help but feel a sense of excitement and relief. Thanksgiving break is approaching, which means I get to go home for a little while to see my family and enjoy home-cooked meals. At the same time, I am relieved thinking about the fact that winter break is within reach. So far, I feel like I have achieved so much, and I am very proud of myself. Between being more social and trying to be involved on campus wherever I can, I’ve reached many personal goals I set in place for myself. During the past few months, I’ve been focused on maintaining my physical, emotional, and mental wellness while juggling coursework, and I can say that it’s been going well. I’ve learned the importance of taking care of my body and mind, which has helped me progress this semester.
As far as classes go, everything has been running smoothly. I have been paying attention to which classes I need to improve in and actively have been going to office hours or study sessions to get the help I need. Compared to last semester, my time-management skills have improved, making it easier to do work and study for each class which has helped my grades tremendously. Although we only have a few more weeks left of school, preparing for finals week can be stressful. Having to complete extensive assignments and study for final exams will be a challenge, but not impossible. I’m glad that we’re in the final stretch, I’m looking forward to ending the semester and the year in good academic standing.
