Sometimes my students get tired before the end of the term. It can happen to anyone…..it happens to instructors when we have bitten off more than we can grade.
Hang in there, people. There will come a day when you totally forget whatever is plaguing you now. If you quit, you may never remember why.
Don’t give up. Okay, so you had a bad breakup with the person you thought was your forever-one-and-only. It hurts. I get it. But are you willing to sacrifice an entire semester’s worth of work for someone whose name you might not remember in two years?
I had a 17-year-old student in one of my classes who cried every day before class for weeks about her recent loss of a boyfriend. It was the end of the world. He was her first boyfriend. He was the only man she would ever love. Of that, she was certain. The breakup happened at the beginning of the semester. By the end of the term, she had forgotten him and moved on. It happens. In spite of her pain, she hunkered down and got the class done. She finished with an A.
Life happens, but try not to let it get you off track.
Keep Your Eyes on the Prize: Hang in There!
