As students come back from break, new projects and assignments start coming along quickly. Students, recharged from the extended break, have either found the determination to improve this semester,, or have the mindset of getting passable grades the whole next half of this year before summer break. After counting many of times, there are only eighty seven school days left to the student body and teachers. This doesn’t include weekends or days off. Thinking about it, eighty seven days isn’t exactly an immense amount of time, especially to a high school student. The days could fly by; one minute you’re  studying up to one in the morning in order to finish the essay due in the morning, the next, you’re graduating. However, with the mindset of only eighty seven days of schools left and finals included, this also means piling assignments and the oncoming tests and quizzes, directly following are dark circles and late nights. Even with the new set of determination to finish this semester well and to improve from last semester, a students will power usually only lasts maybe a week or two. After that, assignments become rough and they start questioning  if it’s actually worth all the work. There are multiple things students can do in order to keep the attitude of doing better and continuing strong through this new start.

 

A sense of accomplishment. Anyone who’s succeeds in something feels better about themselves. Whether it’s acing a test or finally finishing fifty math problems, it’s a success and we feel better for it. Considering this when diving into assignments, can motivate a student to study a little harder than usual ,which increases grades and satisfaction after finally finishing those dreaded homework assignments that are constantly looming. Make sure to accomplish something every week, it will motivate yourself in school and give you the mindset that you can succeed if you try.

Time management.We have all heard from someone at some point in our lives how important it is to manage our time wisely, and we respond that well do it later and  organize ourselves sometime before the next semester. But how many times has that actually happened? Not that many times. Keeping a well put together schedule and having everything in order is a really useful habit to get into. Unfortunately, most of us barely have the time to even make a schedule with everything going on around us.

Time for breaks. Even if it’s forced and only five minutes, sitting down once and awhile and not doing anything productive or stressful can do wonders. When you give your mind a break once in awhile, it can improve the way you do your assignments..

 

You can remember these simple ways or just do something you usually do  to motivate yourself. Just try to keep up good fight  throughout the school year and finish it out strong. Eventually, we’ll be on to greener pastures…
