4 Motivational Quotes For Spring Semester

4 Motivational Quotes For Spring Semester

Spring break is over; now what?

Spring break is over, and now, we have to start preparing ourselves for these last weeks of the semester. It is going to be tough, and there will be many late nights in the library, but we all will make it through. For some of us, this is our last semester of college ever. For others, like myself, this semester will mark the halfway point. Wherever you are in your college career, we all could use some motivational quotes to help us through these next few weeks!

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time ~ Thomas Edison

Spring semester is difficult to get through because we are so close to summer. We love to imagine what adventures we will be having, or thinking about the amazing internship or job we will be working this summer. Oftentimes, these thoughts distract us from the bigger picture. We all came to college for a reason, to pursue a career, interest, passion, and to learn. Whenever you find yourself losing motivation and generally feeling down, remember why you came to college. For me, I think about the future students I will have in my classroom someday. Forward thinking is exactly what will motivate you to go that extra step and keep you motivated to finish this semester strong.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. ~ Dr. Seuss

All humans have insecurities, but it is your choice whether you let them dictate your life, or not. See, you have the potential to be all that you have ever imagined, but you have to take the risks to get there. Even if you have no idea what you want to major in, or have a career in, that is okay. You have time to figure it out, and explore your interests and passions. Do not let the insecurities and worries you have carve your path in this world, let your dreams and imagination do that.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out. ~ R. Collier

Humans are creatures of habit, so when you repeatedly go the library and get work done, then it starts to become a routine. This routine may be noticeable or not, but once you have the habit of studying and completing assignments, it starts to show in your academic success. The smallest effort to look over the reading before class the next day could be the catalyst to a new habit, and a good one.

It's a good day to have a good day

Start your day with this thought and see how it plays out. Know that you can accomplish what you put your mind to, and you will make a better tomorrow by doing what you are doing today. That being said, we all need to have days to get away from stress, so take care of yourself. If you need a mental health day, then go ahead and use an absence of a class and focus on you. If you are having a sub par day, then have a sub par day, but take care of yourself, and know that tomorrow will be better. Otherwise, try to have a good day and know that all your small efforts will bring you closer to your bright future.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
