As summer days grow longer and warmer, it becomes more and more tempting to let school and work slide for awhile. Colleges and schools are out, the sun is shining, and it’s time to get outside! But if you’re like me, there are deadlines to meet and tests to take. Here are 3 ways to keep up with school and still enjoy summer!
1. Be realistic about summer goals
Here’s a good thing to remember: no matter how hard you try to avoid it, things will interrupt your summer. Impromptu soccer games, families visiting, friends to go see, and days too beautiful to ignore. So don’t make a list of “30 Things to Accomplish this Summer”. Be realistic. Set a few goals that really need to be done and focus on those.
2. Read good books
Reading is highly underrated, and I don’t just say that because I love to read. It exercises your mind, relaxes you, and educates you. What else in life gives you all those benefits in one swoop?
3. Take some time off
Give yourself some time to rest and regroup. Take a summer trip with your family, spend a day only reading, take a sibling to the zoo. When I finished Macro last Thursday, I took the rest of that day and Friday off to relax and play with my siblings. Remember that even God rested after creating the world. Resting isn’t bad, it’s laziness that is a problem.
1 year and 6 months later after failing Macroeconomics, I was able to retake it and pass with a 57!!!
All glory to the Lord for the strength and endurance to pass that!
CLEP has once again changed it’s policy on IDs. You no longer have to have 2 photo IDs to take a CLEP exam. Just one, government issued, ID is all you need.
However, most test centers haven’t switched back yet. So call your test center and ask what they need right now, and plan on taking a second ID.
