I think that every semester I go through the same stages:
1.) The I don’t want to do anything stage (usually first few weeks of school)
2.) I need to get my life situated (around middle of second semester)
3.) I need to get my life situated advanced level stage ( towards the end of second semester)
Right now i’m at the I need to get my life situated stage. I’m thinking about the spring and summer classes that I might end up taking. I’m also thinking about internships related to my field. With these reoccurring stages I always know that everything will be find at the end.
