The rainy days are proving to be more unpredictable this year, but hopefully it will all calm down, the mud will dry and harden, the grass will be green again and you’ll finally swapping clunky gum-boots for sassy sandals and crafts. Here are a few ways to get yourself motivated and finish third term like a bawse..
Stay Stadiuos on the sun.On those days when beams of sunlight are coming through the blinds and the thought of spending one more minute among piles of books or in your stuffy dorm room is too much to take, go outside! So when warm weather calls, don’t ignore it � just grab your shades (�if its legal in ya shule �laughs away�) and a textbook to combine cramming with satisfying your third term fever.
Learn your study style.If you’re the type of person who can sit in a silent room for hours on end or bang winter past midnight till morning prep and still push through and get everything topic stuck to the brain, great. But if you need to set up regular study breaks for yourself in order to get through a term paper or the study guide for a final exam, be realistic. Instead of fighting your personal study style, work with it.
Reward your self.Making good use of your time is important, but you know what they say about all work and no play. Once you finish the last chapter of a challenging literature novel or work out that last equation, find an active way to celebrate your determination. Grab a group of buddies and throw a frisbee around or just lay out on the quad to catch some rays.
Do the worst first.Usually, if you have a big pile of work to do you’ll work on the little things first to get them out of the way and put the most difficult project or assignment off. There are festivals, galas, proms, formals and flings filling up your schedule, the last thing you’ll have room for is a time-consuming assignment. By finishing this assignment as soon as possible, you’ll free up your time for fun and have plenty of time left in between your social commitments for smaller assignments.
Work out before you work it out.Let’s face it � beautiful weather is distracting. It can seem almost impossible to commit to spending an afternoon with flashcards and highlighters when the temperature finally reaches livable digits. Try swinging into good vibes with a jog around campus or a stroll with a friend.
