Anytime I get close to the end of something – a project, a task, a semester – pretty much anything, I find myself becoming impatient for it to “just be over.” I start losing enthusiasm or steam. Whatever energy I had at the beginning is dwindling. I am ready to be done, to move on. At this point, I have to work very hard to keep going. Giving up, while tempting, is not an option.
The end of the semester is just a little over a week away. The grading period in room 32 ends Friday, January 15th. Don’t give up! Keep your eyes on the prize. You have worked so hard all semester to maintain good grades. Now is the time to push through and finish strong! Good luck! You can do it!
