Starting Junior Year Right!

Obviously I wanted to blur out my instructor's name for privacy but didn't care enough to make it look good.

Maymester course grades have finally been posted, and I earned an A in my class! I've always said that I'm naturally intelligent. I've never had to study or put in much effort to earn As and Bs in school. For the most part, I just get it. But my first two years of college I realized that I actually needed to do something if I wanted good grades, but for some reason I just didn't care enough to really try. I was settling with average.

But after spring semester something finally clicked. I started to care and wanted to do my best. I started to get motivated and determined. And I finally got some self-discipline. I really tried in my maymester class. I wanted that A, and I was prepared to work for it. I kept telling myself, "It's only two weeks. Work hard for two weeks, and you're done." So I did. And it paid off.

I like to attribute most of this new found motivation to growing up. I'm going to be out in the world in just two short years. It's time to buckle down and start taking responsibility, and I realize that now. If I want to be successful, it's up to me to make it happen. And it's time to make it happen.

Stay golden,
Jessie
