Staying Motivated

As the school year begins to wind down you might find yourself losing motivation to continue putting your all into your school work. Whether that be from senioritis, already killing every other assignment in the class, or even just general laziness. But take it from someone who struggles with this himself, you’ve got to keep pushing forward. I know Summer seems right around the corner (or Spring, depending on how the Chicago weather feels that day) but it’ll be much more satisfying knowing you’ve put all your effort into crushing final exams, projects, etc. so you can feel confident about knowing you’ve aced (or at least passed) all your classes. DePaul is a little different from other universities in that we are on the quarter system which means a lot of your friends may already be on Summer vacation traveling the world, going to festivals, and while it may seem fun to join them it is easy to lose focus about what’s important. Passing your classes, making sure you have a summer job, having an internship, etc. I personally have been procrastinating a few projects but over the next weeks, I plan to change that. Even as a Junior I still have a lot to learn about time management and not waiting until the last minute to do something, even if the deadline was given to me weeks ago. Put the work in and it’ll be worth it trust me.
