Well, it looks like we are a few weeks into the new school year, and one thing’s for sure..the honeymoon’s over.  The first few days of school remind me of the beginning of the new calendar year.  Everyone makes New Year’s resolutions, and some actually commit to these for at least the month of January.  The school year is very similar.  You often hear, “I’m so not gonna procrastinate this year like I did in the past.”  At some point, we need to stop kidding ourselves.  Embrace the things that make you unique.  If you are a procrastinator, yet you handle your business effectively and on time, then it’s not a problem.  If you haven’t been successful following a certain mantra, then change it up.  Ultimately, change for change’s sake doesn’t make sense.  Set realistic goals for yourself that you can achieve.  If your goal seems far away, like graduation for a freshman, break each year into separate mini-goals.  When you feel stuck, remember that there are people that make a living out of teaching and guidance that are readily available to you whenever you need it.  Best of luck this year!
