While spring semester here doesn't start until January 19th, for me it feels like the official start is tomorrow! I'm happy to say I've been feeling a lot better during the weekend, mentally, so I really feel ready and able to take on this very intense semester now! I fully realize it will not be easy and I will have to face a ton of challenges, but I think that going into it with a positive and confident attitude is very important! There is no guarantee how it will all turn out and I realize I can fail at things even though I feel motivated now - but at least I have to start somewhere, right?
I've been doing some preparation work for my job as mentor today, as we're having a meeting (our tutors and all the students that are mentors this semester) tomorrow, and it feels good to have started thinking about it already, even though I won't start yet for about a week or so. I also did some domestic work, replanted some of my pot plants and so, so I feel pretty good about today!
I know it's still early, but since I'm gonna start having really long days from tomorrow, I'll leave home at about 6.45 a.m. and will probably be home around 6 p.m. in the evenings in order to maximize my studies, I think I should start winding down early and trying to get to bed at a decent time!
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and that you will have a great week!
