Hello, I'd like to start out with a quick recap about myself. My name is Isaac Greeson, I am from an Indiana family farm, and this is my first semester as an agronomy ambassador. This past summer instead of returning to do another internship with the company I interned with last summer, I decided to return home to help my dad on our family farm. I mostly worked on machinery and did landscaping around our house. Not quite as glamorous as my summer internship but it was good to be home.
Being at home for the summer was great, but for all of us that didn't graduate, we must go back to school. Like the transition from summer to fall we to have to make a transition from no school to school. For some this transition seems very easy, for others it can be very hard and takes some time to get back in the swing of things. For me it is the latter. No matter how much I tell myself that I need to be in school mode, I always seem to have a difficult time starting the semester.
I think this is a problem all of us have to some extent, some worse than others. This semester being one of my hardest yet my inability to transition into the semester has hit pretty hard. One of the best thing you can do to combat this tendency is to place yourself into a group of motivated people that create a good atmosphere for you to learn and grow in. If all of your friends just sit around and watch tv on the internet all day, causing you to do the same, then try and find another group of friends that will help you succeed scholastically.
The biggest thing to take away from this post is that distraction is the enemy, keep busy.
