You want those A+ grades? Work for it.
I’m living proof that if you work hard for it, try your best and make it clear you’re making an effort - there’s no reason not to get an A or even straight A’s. I never had straight A’s in my life until my most recent semester of college. What changed? My attitude. My dedication. I made sure to speak up in class. I made sure to ask questions when I didn’t know what was going on but most importantly and I heavily emphasize this part: Speak to your professors, about class, about school, and about life. I have heard many people say this to me before and thought it was so bizarre but I tried it last semester and what do you know, my professors were quite interesting people and to my surprise they’re not just here to teach you and give you a grade. They’re there to help shape us into better educated individuals and hope we do our best. As long as you’re giving it your absolute best, that’s all they’re asking for. You can’t fail.
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
Six simple rituals:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.
2. Define your top 3. Every morning ask yourself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” Prioritizes your day accordingly and don’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete.
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Spend your 10 minutes getting away from your desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water.
4. Move and sweat daily. Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert. It boosts energy and mood, and relieves stress.
5. Express gratitude. Gratitude fosters happiness. Each morning, think of at least five things you’re thankful for. In times of stress, pause and reflect on these things.
6. Reflect daily. Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection. Asks yourself, “What went well?” and “What needs improvement?”
I made the executive decision on purchasing my very first Lily Pultizer Agenda! I got the Large Agenda in Lily Lovers and I absolutely cannot wait to get it in the mail. I’m hoping this will motivate me to keep my life together during this upcoming busy semester. Working full time, Going to school full time and additionally working part time as a tutor in my school’s writing center.
