Read These Quotes To Get You Through Finals Week

It's about that time. We are in the final weeks of spring semester and college students everywhere are preparing for finals.

The end of the semester is approaching ever so slowly as we lose motivation and dread the upcoming exams. Everyone needs a little motivation to get themselves through these final few weeks of the spring semester.

"You learn more from failure than from success. Don't let it stop you. Failure builds character."

You learn from your failures. Don't kick yourself for failing an exam. You will learn how to study the correct way for that particular class. Don't worry if you have to repeat a class. You will do better this time. Your GPA will rise. The problems in your life will subside. It will be okay. These failures will make you who you are. Do not give up.

"If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you."

It won't be easy. Chasing your dreams and finally graduating with your degree will not be a piece of cake. But the challenge is going to be worth it when you finally walk across the stage and accept that diploma or when you get your acceptance letter into law school or when you can finally call yourself a doctor.

"Be fearless in pursuit of what sets your soul on fire."

Chase the dreams that excite you. Chase the dreams that make you want to work harder. Don't give up. Don't settle. If it sets your soul on fire and excites you in a way you cannot explain, do whatever you can to chase those dreams.

"Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will."

You may feel limited as you study and hope for the future. You may feel as if you cannot do what your heart wants to do. This doubt will kill more dreams than failing a final or a class will. Believe in yourself. You are your only limit.

Yes, I Want To Be A Teacher

"You know you don't make that much money, right?"

Yes, I want to be a teacher. Yes, I know what the salary of a teacher is like. Yes, I know that people will view my future career as “easy.” No, I would not want any other job in the world.

I am sure that I am not the only future educator who has had enough with hearing all the critiques about becoming a teacher; we are tired of hearing all the negative aspects because it’s obvious that the positives will ALWAYS outweigh those judgemental negative comments.

So, why do I want to be a teacher? I am sure that I speak for many other future teachers when I say that I am not doing it for the salary, benefits, or even the summer vacation (although that is a great plus!).

I want to be a teacher because I will be able to wake up on Mondays and actually be excited. Saturday and Sunday will be a nice break to relax, but I know that I will be ready to fill up my apple-shaped mug with coffee on Monday morning and be ready for a day full of laughs and new lessons for my students for the upcoming week.

I want to be a teacher because I get to have an impact on tomorrow's leaders. No, I don’t mean that I’m predicting my future student to be the president of the United States (but, hey, that would be a pretty cool accomplishment). I mean that I have the job to help students recognize that they have the power to be a leader in and out of the classroom.

I want to be a teacher because I don’t want an easy day. Challenges are what push me to greatness and success. Although many people think teaching is an easy profession, I know that it isn’t easy. It’s very hard, every day at every moment. But it is worth it when a student finally understands that math problem that stumped them for awhile and they have a huge smile from ear to ear.

I want to be a teacher because I want to work with kids. I mean, come on, what else is greater than a kid having fun and you’re the reason why? A picture might be worth a thousand words, but a child being excited and having fun while learning is worth a million.

I want to be a teacher because I don’t want a high salary. If I really cared about making a six-figure income, I would have chosen a different profession. Teaching is not about the check that I bring home every week or two, it’s about what I learn and the memories that I make; the memories that I get to share with my family at dinner that night.

I want to be a teacher because there is nothing else in this world that I’d rather do for the rest of my life. Sure, there may be other jobs that are rewarding in more ways. But to me, nothing can compare to the view of a classroom with little feet swinging back and forth under a desk from a student learning how to write their ABCs.

Teaching may not be seen as the perfect profession for everyone, but it is the perfect profession for me.
