Something I have come to notice these past few weeks is that along with the summer holidays comes a lot of free time. Having all of these extra hours of unproductively can easily result in slacking, therefore, it is crucial for one to set up plans and make goals; however, even after setting goals, even after creating schedules and plans I still happen to find myself with more time than I can spend.
Given that my final target to accomplish within these vacations is productivity, I have decided to take on a small project that will not only entertain me in my boredom, but grandly serve purpose in a not so far away future.

Taking into consideration the fact that with the coming of March a lot of decisions will have to be made regarding my classes for Junior year, the fact that next week I will be traveling to visit potential universities my brother may desire to attend to, the fact that maybe next year the one going to college visits will be me, I have decided to begin my research regarding my future options of these educational institutions.
So far, I have gotten to register 12 solid candidates in my handbook, and by using it I have managed to convince my mother to purchase a flight to Michigan within my trip next week, to visit one of the universities I like the most. Overall I must say this book has served a good purpose, and I'm sure it will continue being useful in the future. Now I have to focus my time into thinking out some questions to ask the admissions counselor in my college visit the following week, and of course adding on new universities I find worthy.
I have set myself up for these goals for the following months because I want this year to be as, or even more productive than last year. I finished the past semester proud of my hard work, and my grades where evidence of that; however, I am aware that in order to improve I must continue with the good habits I created in 2014. In my opinion a solid start is key to a solid ending, thus I plan on being completely proactive these vacations.
The careless period of the summer break has already gone by, and I say this 100% self-assured: I have to make the most of the time I have left, it's time to get back on track!
