The year 2016 is about to end and a lot has happened this year; a lot. Many revered entertainers demised, the unrest in Middle East led to a terrible refugee crisis and America chose a new leader whose credibility is still a matter of concern. India was not aloof from drastic changes either, the demonetization of 500 and 1000 rupee notes led to a wave of both negative and positive criticism. Even though, the nation has come together and showered immense support in hopes of creating a corruption free India.
Well, that’s what happened around the globe and our country that somehow had a direct or indirect effect on our lives. But let’s try to break down, zoom in a little bit. It’s December, most of you would have appeared for half-yearly exams and some of you would be prepping hard for your pre-boards. Ah, tough times ahead. With all the peer pressure building up and the anticipation of finding the right stream and right college would have started by now. If it hasn’t, it should because these few months are deciding factors that will shape your future.
The last few days of this eventful year are about to get over, everyone’s awaiting a new year to start. Along with their studies one should also indulge themselves in the festive celebrations that follow. You could be a secret Santa for your loved ones, get them gifts and let them know how special they are. The festive week also lets you take a pause from your books and assignments and take a deep breath.
New Year is all about resolutions, trying to quit bad habits and opting new good ones that would make you a better person. For a student, it’s important to make resolutions too; resolutions that would help them get rid of their shortcomings and make them a better performer. Yes, there’s nothing new about your half year old books and contents of which you have been aware of for quite some time now. But you can surely have a fresh approach towards flipping those same old pages in a new and efficient manner.
This new year, try setting goals that challenge you, that inspire you to become a better student and better person. Yes, of course, you would make the mistake of writing 2016 instead of 2017 on your notebooks for couple of months. But there’s a lot you can do right!
