    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Starting the Semester

The Spring 2017 semester officially started on January 17. Most classes are only one semester long, but there are some classes that are a whole year long because they have Part 1 and Part 2, such as General Biology 1 and 2, and General Chemistry 1 and 2. Regardless of the length of the courses, though, every semester starts off with the sense that everything is new, starting all over again.
At the beginning of the semester, it no longer matters what your last semester looked like. Last semester is over and there’s an entirely new semester waiting. Maybe your grades were fantastic last semester. You can take those quality study habits the same and do what you do. Maybe your grades last semester were not your best. You can throw bad study habits out the window and try something else. Maybe you weren’t as involved on campus as you wanted to be last semester. Well, now you have a chance to change that.
For this semester, I am going to try to form a healthier sleep pattern. I survived last semester being a zombie, and I think I’ve become bored with the perpetual state of daze and sleep deprivation. I also want to spend less days cramming intensely the day before tests or due dates, and spend more time trying to be productive for shorter amounts of time more consistently.
I’ve heard it takes 21 days to form a habit.
Let’s see if I can form some healthier habits this semester.
