Recommendations of the Week: September 5th

Welcome back to more Recommendations of the Week. This week is the first week of classes for most people, and today is the first day of classes for me. So it's only suiting, of course, to do school themed recommendations.

Set Goals:

I know it sounds cheesy, but the best way to succeed at school is to set some goals and realistic expectations for the year. What you have to do is determine what you want the end result to look like, and then figure out a way that will allow you to achieve that. If you want straight A's then how much time will you have to dedicate to studying and doing homework? Maybe you'll realize that you're not willing to give up that much time, so maybe pick two courses you want A's in and aim for A's in those and B's in the others. Then in the end you'll feel like you've accomplished something great, instead of being disappointed and let down. Maybe this formula doesn't work for you. Luckily you have this week to try and come up with a formula that does, then comes the hard part, implementing it. Again this sounds cheesy, but if you think you can do it, and you honestly try, then you'll probably be able to do it (remember to set realistic goals though, there's no point in aiming for 100% in everything).

Do Something Fun:

Ride in style with your very own Hummer golf cart
If you're a university or college student like me then you'll probably be feeling a bit short on money around this time of year and probably starting to get really stressed. So this is the perfect time to do something fun. It's like the big finale to summer. If you do something really awesome at the end of the year then you won't feel so bad, or feel like you missed out or wasted time in the summer, coming into the new school year. For instance last year I went out golfing (one of my favorite summer time activities) with some of my buddies. But what we did that was extra special was rent a couple of golf carts. Normally we don't to save money, so it was fun to just not care for a day and drive around the course like mad men. Anyways what I'm saying is go out and do something awesome.
