Getting Back Into It

Hello Hello Hello!

It seems like it has been forever since I last posted–I hope everyone had a terrific holiday and enjoyed the time off of school even though it did not feel like it was long enough!

The hardest thing about having a month off of school when you are in college is that it is VERY hard to get back into the swing of things and “re-motivate” yourself to do your homework and maintain a regular weekly schedule again. However, if you work in a donut shop like I do (which I’m going to assume most of you don’t) coming back to school and getting up at 7:20 a.m. feels like sleeping in when I had to get up around 5 a.m. almost everyday of vacation. Try doing that AND having the terrible temptation to eat donuts all day long–a terrible combination.

Another early distraction upon returning back to campus is all of your friends that you probably didn’t see much over break…if at all. For example, my best friend lives in California, so besides a few phone calls and a lot of texting, I really missed her company. Of course I am going to want to hang out and catch up with my friends before I start working on reading new chapters and doing assignments, as would any other student at Muskingum.

However, I told myself today after looking at all of my syllabi and realizing that I could be working ahead on a few things, that I better get started. It is way better to get ahead then get caught in the vicious cycle of always being behind and trying to play, “catch up.” Trust me this is very easy to do in college if you are not careful.

Well, I am going to continue making some notecards for my online Medical Terminology class, and hope that you all have a more positive attitude about being back at school than I do!

Talk to you all next week!
Ashley 🙂
