Two more days. Monday will be the first day of my second semester as a graduate student. This semester I’ve scheduled three courses, but I’m not absolutely sure if I
can handle want to take three classes. Of course I can handle it but graduate courses can get pretty demanding and I don’t want to feel overwhelmed towards the middle of the semester.
I guess the key to sucess would be to try my best to remain organized. (Isn’t that the key to almost everything?) And in addition to that, I want to have my own little workspace where I can actually work. Most of my work is done in my bed or in my living room. Can you imagine the amount of success I’ve had trying to complete assignments while lying down..in my bed.. on a pillow.. under my covers? Yea, not much considering the copious amounts of comfort that my bed provides.
I must say, it was delightful to come home and be able to sit at my desk and review the information my professors provided me with today. And it may just be a mind thing, but having all the space that I need to put my books, notes, and everything I need to reflect, made me feel more productive and effective. I have my own little space in my room that provides just enough inspiration and motivation to work. Hard.
I have major goals this semester and besides a pretty obvious one, which is to eliminate procrastination, I want to raise my GPA. I currently have a 3.5 and even though that’s pretty spectacular (:beep beep:), I know I can do better, especially if I don’t wait until the last minute
like I usually do. I know it can be done if I strive to put in that extra effort that I know I can provide. After all, my family’s future depends on this.
