48 More Days

by Katie Yeaton

There are 48 more days left until graduation and I am ecstatic. My past two years in Las Vegas have flown by in the blink of an eye. It seems like just yesterday I was driving cross-country to move to Sin City, and now I’m applying to jobs and planning to move again. (Clearly the travel bug has not changed.) UNLV will forever hold a special place in my heart and I know I will stay in touch with this second family no matter where I travel to next.

Since we are past the midway point in the semester, I want to dedicate this post to some of my goals to finish strong. I hope these goals inspire you to create a similar list and keep pushing through the end of the semester.

  1. Complete capstone before spring break: Since I will be headed out for Alternative Breaks, I do not want to create added stress for myself. My goal is to review my capstone and revise it this week and early next to have it complete. (Also, if you are thinking “you haven’t had spring break yet?”, I’m thinking the same thing. Our spring break is not until the second week of April.)
  2. Complete work now: It’s easy to procrastinate, especially as the weather shows more signs of summer. To make the end of the semester easier and less stressful, complete as much work as you can now. Watching Dancing with the Stars might be tempting, but completing your capstone would be much more beneficial.
  3. Many days, lighten the work: Your independent study, all of the group projects, chop them up and do little bits of them at a time instead of completing them all at once. Yes, you can complete them in one sitting, but avoid this stress and pressure.
  4. Stick to your schedule: If you have “Independent Study work” from 5pm-7pm, do not move this block. You do not want this block to move to 10pm-12am.
  5. Be Positive: In this final stretch you will be stressed and focused on completing your work. Remember to smile and enjoy these final months. You’ve got this.
