Setting Goals

I think it’s important to set goals for the new school year and see if you’ve accomplished your goals at the end of the year and maybe you can transfer some of the goals for the next year as well. Divide your goals into personal and academic goals and set at least 3 goals for each topic. 
If you don’t know what goals to set here are some ideas:

  • Stop procrastinating 
  • Be more actively involved in classes 
  • Study more


  • Don’t stress out too much
  • Go to bed early 
  • Don’t use your phone as much

Reschedule Your Sleeping Schedule

Start sleeping early and wake up early a few days before school begins, that way your body will adjust to your new sleeping schedule and you won’t feel tired or sleepy to wake up early on your first day of school.


You should definitely clean out your closet, backpack, pencil case, folders, etc. You will feel more ready to start the new semester with things that you actually need instead of having clothes and papers in your backpack that you don’t need. Get rid of books that you don’t need by donating them or giving them to students that might need them.

Get To Know Your Schedule And Classes

If you have a fixed weekly class schedule you should definitely get to know what your schedule looks like and where your classes are. Maybe you can visit the school and find out where the campus and classes are.

Organize Your Study Space

Where would you study if you don’t have a study place? You should not study on your bed since it’s where you relax and sleep so you won’t be able to focus on your bed. Find a little corner or something and put a table and organize all of your study materials there. Just make yourself a cute little study area, you’ll just be more motivated to study more and it’ll make you focus.

Go Back To School Shopping

Of course, duh! Take your best friend, your mom or go alone if you’d like and shop for the next school year! Get yourself a new backpack, pencil case, notebooks, a planner, etc. Make sure to make a list of everything that you need before you go out shopping so you don’t buy unnecessary stuff or forget to buy something. 


Get yourself a planner and start planning. Make to-do lists every day so you don’t forget anything. Find out what kind of planning works best for you, do you like to write everything down in a notebook or just type everything on your phone? I use google calendar and it works great for me but I am also going to buy a physical planner! You should definitely write down when your due dates are for each essay and exam etc.

Make A Study Space

Create a study schedule so you don’t get overwhelmed by everything. Write down what time you’ll be done with school each day and then plan out how many hours you’ll use to study when you are home. This is such a great idea since it’ll give you an overview of how much time you have left from your day to study. 


Just calm down and relax. Take a few days off before school begins and do some self-care. Don’t worry or stress out too much about the new semester everything will be fine! So just relax for a few days and take care of yourself since you should be well-rested when you start a new semester. 

I hope this blog post helped you to prepare for the new semester. Make sure to share this with your family and friends. Comment down below what you are studying? Take care of yourself until next time!
