Caged Monkeys?

And so it begins, the day that is. What of it? Is there anything exciting or new to do? Or is it just the same old same old? Is the daily drudgery of classes, work, homework, classes, work, homework, classes, work, homework getting you down? Classes, work, homework. Classes, work, homework. Classes - work - homework! AHHH!!! Will it ever end? When do we get a break? I’m too over whelmed with this taste of warm weather. I need to be free, to go as I please and not be worried about the paper due on Monday. I need - Spring break.
March 14th everyone! It’s coming! It’s coming! Hold on, don’t lose heart. The day will soon be upon us when tests and papers are no longer priority. Oh, come quickly day! Not that I don’t like learning or enjoy stretching my mind intellectually. It’s just sometimes I get this disease, commonly diagnosed as SPRING FEVER!!! And boy, do I have it bad. The beach, the waves, warm air, sun shine, freedom, just talking about it makes me happy. J But I loathe that day when it is over and I have to readjust to normal life. Here are a few tips to get back in the swing of things after being exposed to all that freedom:
1.      Set your alarm clock. Ok, this may sound like a no brainer, but many days  I forget to set my alarm (for the right time). Especially after any amount of time being care-free.
2.      Read a little. Don’t forget those  books we pour ourselves into during  the semester. Read something that you enjoy, just to keep your mind limber.
3.      Set high goals. Come back to your classes with new, higher goals. Use that time to reset your priorities and readjust your mind to dream bigger dreams!
I hope these help. What are some things that you do to help get yourself back into a disciplined routine?

  1. High Goals! And break them down into smaller ones.

    Makes a 25 page paper more manageable when you do not have to write it all in one afternoon.
