Throw The Whole GPA Away!

(Giphy.com)

Not every semester is going to be amazing. Even Lebron has a bad game every once in a while. This is only to say that if you focus and re-strategize, your come back can be spectacular. A bad semester doesn’t have to ruin your whole career. It should be a learning experience instead. Here are three techniques for rebounding from a bad semester.

“Dis tew much” | Taking on more classes than the average student doesn’t equate to better grades or a better outcome for the semester. It can actually be detrimental to your GPA if you bite off more than you can chew.

Quality vs. Quantity | Make sure you take the time use good studying techniques. The amount of hours you take to study matters less than the quality of your study session.

Teacher’s Pet | Being teacher’s pet could make or break your semester. Be there during their office hours. Sit in the front row. Always do the extra credit. By doing these things, you will show the professor that you’re putting in the effort to do well.

You vs. You! Stop The Sabotage

It’s time to re-energize and start shifting your focus! Moving forward is an important part of growth. But sometimes we hinder our own growth and don’t realize how detrimental it can be. Here are three ways you’re sabotaging yourself from being the best you can be:

Hit The Brakes On The Negative Thoughts- This is probably the most common issue people have. It’s so easy to think “It’s never going to happen” rather than “Just because it didn’t happen today, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop trying”. Positivity is like karma. When you put it in the atmosphere, it will come back around to you.

Skip The Comfort Highway- It’s okay to be comfortable but don’t let comfort allow you to forget about your goals. The ease of being in a daily routine can make the thought of something new seem inconvenient.

Override Fear-If an opportunity presents itself and the fear of failing kept you from going for it, you’ve already lost. Despite how people seem to be living their best lives on social media, they’ve had failures too. Everyone does, however, often times you grow from them.

Yeah, you got it!

Broke Vibes?

Summer is in full swing + so are those part-time checks from your summer gig! Don’t fret; we’ll cover our eyes on how you’ve already spent your money on clothes, beauty goodies and concert tickets for the first half of the summer. Well, for the rest of the month we’re going to give you 3 reasons why saving your money is “not your enemy” in your life!

Clouds Are Rolling In!– Have you heard the saying “save for a rainy day” in life? Well, with all this global warming happening you never know when a storm will pop up. Okay, so maybe not a real life tornado but a shift in your money flow. An extra book for your college course? Your basketball uniform? I mean it’s always good to have a little cushion.

Hands Out Syndrome– So your parents love you and your homegirls have your back but let’s be honest they are not your personal ATM. Always asking for someone to spot you or cover you can be a bit draining and can even break up friendships. Keep a stash and play it safe.

Shrug That Feeling– It’s as simple as that feeling. We all know that feeling. That feeling of finding a quarter is an upgrade to our empty accounts. It’s cool to look fly but when you have an empty account can take away from your fab life.

So get to stacking!
