How To Survive Another Year Of College

Goals For The New School Year:

When you are at school, you want to be at home. When you are at home, you want to be at school. If you are like me, you are constantly wavering between a whirlwind of emotions of the school year to come. You crave the start of the school year, but also whimper at the anxiety of the new school year: school stress, academic stress and social stress. I have been reflecting a lot on the new school year to come. I want this to FINALLY be my year. I want to be able to wake up and feel accomplished by the previous days happenings. I want to be able to look back on this year and be able to say that I have lived outside of my comfort zone. I want to be able to say I have met new people, and I have become the best possible version of myself. Whether you are completely content with your past school years, I want you to know that there is always room for improvement. I have so many things that I want to see happening.
