New year, new you! First off, sorry for being MIA for so long. The Holiday’s got busy and the 8 day cruise my best friend and I treated ourselves too kept me away from my lovely laptop. In fact that’s a new years resolution you should all consider – save up some extra $ and plan a getaway with friends for a long weekend during the semester. Sunshine, a beach chair and a good book is a necessity for a hectic college lifestyle. Now with a new year comes a new slate (kind of like starting freshman year). In case you’re having trouble creating your own new years resolutions, I’ve jotted down some ideas that you are more than welcome to take.
1. Get organized! Throw out clothes, shoe’s, old notes, notebooks, old makeup, clean up your life! The problem with cleaning out your room is that you pick up things you’ve never used or clothes you’ve never worn and say “i’m sure i’ll use this or wear this one time.” Then sure enough nothing gets thrown out. The trick here is to pick out the things you DO use and wear often FIRST, then with whatever is left over is stuff you probably don’t need. Get rid of it.
2. Don’t procrastinate. How many times have you heard this? Probably enough to get you annoyed and procrastinate even more to make a point. Yea, well don’t do that. Get a big old fancy 2013 planner and use it.
3. Get good grades. This may sound cheesy but write out your class schedule on a piece of paper and then next to each class put (loud and clear) what grade you want to get by the end of the semester. Hang that piece of paper next to your desk so you can see it every day. The power of writing down a goal is wonderful!
4. Build your resume and land a great summer internship! It doesn’t matter what year you are, anyone is capable of being a successful intern. Internqueen.com is a fantastic resource, you don’t want to miss out on great internships around the country and tips on how to land you dream internship.
Here’s to your best year yet!
