The fall semester has officially started. It’s yet another year at the beautiful campus of IUP.
Autumn is a time for change. Here are ten things I would like to accomplish throughout my fall semester.
1. Plan ahead/Don’t procrastinate
I’m completely terrible at actually doing assignments ahead of the due dates. I’d really like to be as stress-free as possible this semester. My classes aren’t the easiest and they will only get harder as I go through my junior and senior years.
2. Get a campus job
I’ve had work-study before and never applied anywhere because I was afraid I wouldn’t have time. This semester I would like to try and tackle a job to have extra money for food, sorority related items, and bills. My only worry is that I will slip with my school work or not be as connected with my sisters.
3. Be nice
If you don’t know me personally, I’m not the nicest person in the whole world. I used to be actually. All through my life, I was trampled on because I was the nice, quiet girl. I then decided that enough was enough. Now, it’s just got out of hand and I’m basically just a bitch. I’d really like to be nicer but not as nice as I once was. I want to be kind gestures out of the blue and make people smile.
4. Start a YouTube channel
I’d really like to start a small channel this year. I know I won’t have a lot of time to make the best quality videos but, I would like to try. I’ve been obsessed with the thought of making a channel for such a long time but I am just a socially awkward human. You basically have to talk to yourself but then when you upload, you’re talking to hundreds of people.
5. Have a Successful Recruitment Season
Fall is much different from spring recruitment. It’s harder to get girls interested. You basically have to rely on your sisters to know girls who would be interested in joining or talking to girls in your classes in hopes they are interested as well.
6. Having a Normal Sleep Schedule
Unfortunately, this semester, I have an 8 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday so, I want to be as alert as possible. I’ll never be 100%, due to the fact I’m not a morning person, but I’d like to try. Coffee is going to be my best friend this semester.
7. Use The Gym
I’m paying for the school’s gym anyways. I might as well take advantage of it. I’m not the workout, fitness type of girl but if it’s close and convenient, I might as well use it. I just won’t be giving up my pasta, pizza, or fast food.
8. Study Harder
I’m terrible at studying. I don’t think I’ll even get the proper handle on how to study. I easily get distracted, don’t know what to memorize/understand and what to ignore. I love professors that give me study guides because if not, I never feel prepared enough. I like to know the subjects to spend my time on and what to know but not get too hung up about.
9. Appreciate The Amazing People In My Life
I basically do this already but I feel like I need to show them more how much they mean to me. I have made amazing friends while at school. Most of them will be graduating this year so I need to show them how much they have affected me in a positive way.
10. Enjoy The Little Things
College goes by so quickly. You only will see these people on the daily for a short period of time. I need to appreciate college memories a little bit more than I already do. The years through school have been up and down for me. I’ve had bad moments and amazing moments. I don’t want to dawn on the bad but rather on the great.
