As I was color coding my two, yes, I said two, planners I realized how jam-packed life looks when it's all laid out in pink and blue ink. Between school and extracurriculars, a spare moment is rare. It's almost the time of the school year where we begin tearing out our hair and reaching a whole new level of stress. As a kid, I always dreamt of going to law school before I even understood what it was. It's needless to say that "Legally Blonde" is one of my most treasured movies. Here's why this semester, we need to be a little more like Elle Woods.
We could all learn a little from Elle, settle for nothing less than what you want. So toss the backup plan and get to work!
2. Keep Your Friends Close
Yes, even when it's stressful. When things start getting chaotic, your friends are there to remind you that maybe you don't have to cry over everything. They are your biggest supports and cheerleaders. Like Elle does, lean on them because they only want to help you reach your seemingly unreachable goals.
3. Prove People Wrong
If you were unlucky enough to have someone like Warren in your life, make sure you prove them wrong. Even if what you're trying to achieve is, in fact, the hardest thing you've ever done, act like it was easy and know a person like Warren doesn't deserve to know your hard work.
4. It's OK to Not Be OK
Even if you're chalk full of the confidence that everyone likes you, even Elle Woods has her bad days. We all take losses but, like Elle, make it into an opportunity to be great.
5. Strong Work Ethic
I hate to be the one to say it but, whatever you'd like to achieve in school this semester, chances are you're actually going to have to read the book you overpaid for.
6. Working Towards Rewards
Even though you may not be graduating soon, getting great grades in the process only makes the reward that much better. So, like Elle, work out the best way for you to be successful so graduation day can come as soon as possible.
Though you maybe not be attending law school, the character of Elle Woods exhibits some great traits that can be applied to your own academic success. I believe we can all learn a thing or two from the girl who persevered the scrutiny of staying true to who she was. So this semester, take some tips from Elle Woods, even if it is just the mastering of the bend and snap.
