This week was the first week of my last semester at FIT. It has both flown by and taken forever to get here! I’m sad and excited at the same time. I have been a student for the past 15 or so years of my life – and while I hope to never stop learning, it will be different no longer being enrolled in classes or working towards graduation. So, I would like to make the most of this semester! Below are some goals:
- Use my student resources more
FIT has amazing labs, computer programs and resources for students, and I regret not using them more! I’d like to spend some time in the sewing lab, making something! Additionally, FIT provides the Adobe creative suite free to students, which is super expensive otherwise. Before I lose access to it I would like to refine my skills more by creating more personal projects in Adobe Illustrator, and finally learning how to effectively use Photoshop.
2. Keep my GPA up
I will admit, since I already have my post-grad job lined up the motivation to have a good GPA has dropped. However, I would like to still do my best! Even though GPA is truly just a number, there is satisfaction in trying for the highest number. I’m going to work away at my studies and homework for my own personal GPA goal.
Since I am working full time this semester, as well as finishing my FIT degree I would like to try to be balanced in my life. In past semesters I have let my social life slide in order to accommodate work and school, but I’d like to leave a weekend day for fun every week. Wether it’s going out for dinner or a movie night with friends, just forcing time to be not working and not studying.
What are your goals for this semester? Let me know!
