Control F: Motivation

Coming back to school from a holiday like Thanksgiving is really hard. The end of the semester is in sight, but you're ducking behind your fort of pillows and textbooks hoping Finals don't find you. Trust me, no matter how well you build your fort, your stronghold is unfortunately not that strong.

I personally have three group projects and two papers due. To say I would rather not be doing homework is a bit of an understatement. (Have you seen the new Facebook events that have been going around? Some of them are hilarious! It'd be hilarious to have an event where everyone hides under their desk and pretends Finals are over.) Also, it's Cyber Monday and you're obviously on an electronic device right now - have you seen some of the deals going on?!


*******

It's not about having the skill to do something. It's about having the will, desire, and commitment to be your best. - Robert Hernandez

Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. - Henry David Thoreau

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

*******

Hope at least one of these quotes helps you find motivation today! You got this,  I believe in you!

Catch you next time.

P.S. Don't forget that the Kiss My Southern Sass Cyber Monday Sale is going on RIGHT NOW. I've outlined the detail here and be sure to use "SouthwestPrep" at checkout for an extra discount!
