Instead of thinking about work in the evening, it is fun to relax with a silly movie. Tonight, I watched The Croods and Pink Panther with my roommate. Just forgetting what is to come during the week and what already happened is easy when you’re laughing at a stupid comedy. During the week, it can be tough to relax because there is lots to do from the time you get back, to before you go to sleep. It is important to try and stay calm on the weekends, even though there is much to be done. Take each assignment little by little, and make sure to enjoy the fun when you get a chance.
Since this year has basically been an extension of senior year, it is even more difficult to stay motivated this term. Senioritis is difficult to kick, but I try to stay on top of it when I can. Starting assignments before it’s necessary helps keep yourself sane. Some pressure at the end can be useful as well, if you work best that way. However, it is ALWAYS necessary to give yourself breaks and not to over do it. You may burn out before the term is done. Watch some silly movies or shows to keep you laughing – it can be contagious and simply smiling lightens your mood 🙂
