But did you die?

7 Nov

Maybe this semester was a little crappy. Maybe you saw your ability to keep up with your class assignments dwindle over time. Or maybe you have realized that there is no way for you to revive your grades to A’s or B’s. Such is the life of a college student.

But you know what is worse than not doing well in school…Letting your academic struggles ruin your personal life!

Let’s be real: if your grades were plummeting, there is a chance that you forgot about your daily responsibilities. And I don’t mean remembering to brush your teeth or do your hair every morning. I’m talking about your attitude with people and your home life.

What is most important is that you don’t let your social life fall to the wayside. Don’t become a person that people no longer want to be around. It’s not their fault that you had a rough semester, so don’t get angry with them. During this rough time think about the wise words of Mr. Chow:

Be sure to maintain your relationships and have a positive vibe even when the going gets rough. These will be the people who care and want to be there for you.

And don’t forget to take care of your home life too! It can be easy to come home from a long, disappointing day and not want to worry about cleaning up after yourself.

Don’t give in to the temptation! Fight the urge to become a slob.

Moving forward, remember to stay classy, stay fresh. And keep things in perspective by keeping your responsibilities in check.
