Getting Out Of The Post-Spring Break Slump

Well it’s that time of year again. The sun is shining, the weather is warmer and that last thing you want to do is your school work. I’m sorry to be the one to tell you that we still have about 7 weeks left of school before summer break.

To help you stay focused and out of what I like to call the “spring slump,” I decided to make a list of some tips I find useful at this time of year.

  • Plan your day out so you can make time for the outdoors. I find this to be super helpful. After school, I will give myself an hour of free time to be outdoors playing with my nephew, leisurely reading or exercising. I find that after this hour, I am more relaxed and ready to tackle my coursework.
  • Do your school work outdoors. If you just love being outside, do your school work outside. All the MC campuses have tables and benches outside that are great for setting up shop while catching some sun.
  • Join an outdoor club. MC has many different clubs and organizations you can join that venture outdoors.
  • Keep an eye on deadlines. Now that it is sunnier longer, it can seem like the days are longer, but they are not. It can be easy for all these deadlines to catch up to you so make sure you watch out for them so you don’t fall behind.
  • Take weekend trips. We are lucky to live so close to so many wonderful places that make perfect weekend getaways. Take a break from studying and visit Annapolis, downtown Frederick, or even Washington DC.

Spring break was fun, but school isn’t over yet. Hopefully, these tips can help your last few weeks of the semester go by smoothly and still let you enjoy this beautiful weather!

What do you like to do on a nice spring day?

I am a 19-year-old lifelong resident of Damascus, Maryland. I am in my 3rd semester as a part-time student at MC. I plan on getting my Associates Degree in the next couple of years and then transferring to the University of Maryland at the Universities at Shady Grove (health permitting).

MC has been my academic home for the past year and I could not be happier. I started off my collegiate experience at Salisbury University in the fall of 2015, but due to my Chronic Lyme Disease, I was forced to drop out. I thought my academic life was over, as I was too ill to handle a full course-load, but that is when I discovered the part-time option at MC. MC gave the choice to take as many, or as few classes as I wanted, and because of this, I am now back on track to getting my degree. MC also offered me disability support services to further assist me in accomplishing my dreams.

I hope that this blog can help other students like me to see that even though they may not be taking the “traditional” route towards higher education, MC offers load of opportunities that will get us where we want to go. Whether you aren’t sure where you want to end up in life, or have another obstacle, like a chronic illness or disability, you can still reach for the stars and accomplish anything they want to here at MC.
