Monday Motivation!

Hi all! I hope you had an enjoyable and productive weekend ... working on your college and scholarship applications to have them completed and sent out before Thanksgiving Break!

I know for myself, I have lost all ambition for this semester and am struggling to stay motivated and maybe you're feeling the same way! (Grad students have motivation issues too!) I have compiled a little Get Motivated post today to help you focus on this week and get everything completed that you need to!!

While Spring Break may be five to six months away, it doesn't hurt to start thinking of ideas and ways to spend your spring break! Here is a list of the 10 Best Cheap Spring Break Destinations. Personally, I am in favor of beach destinations, but you may find a mountain or city adventure is more your family's speed. Use this time now to work hard and save up money for your potential spring break vacation!

Personally, I am a fan of Myrtle Beach ... but then again
so aren't most people from the Northeast after a long Winter!

This Wednesday (November 11th) is Veteran's Day here in the USA, when we celebrate and thank the men and women who have fought for our country. So, use their bravery and their love of protecting this land as motivation to help increase your bravery of studying for an exam or working on a project. But first, thank a veteran or a veteran's family member for their sacrifices ... it would mean the world to them! Also, if you attend a Veteran's Day Parade or walk past someone from the American Legion with poppy's, give them a donation, even if it is just a dollar, the American Legion gives so much to veteran's, their families, and to active service-people and their families.

Happy Veteran's Day to my grandfather, Retired MSG Lindsay and my wonderful
grandmother for standing by his side even while they were continents apart!

It's Monday ... that means you are four days away from the weekend. That is four days to get everything accomplished on your to-do list that you can! Use the time you have this week to talk to your teachers and professors, make a new memory with your sibling, and ask for advice from your mom or dad. You can make it through this week and can make it through this semester! Work hard and reap the benefits!!

enjoy the chase,
