It’s finally my last semester as an undergraduate. It’s crazy how fast these four years flew by giving the fact that I switched schools after my sophomore year. College has had its ups and downs, so it’s insane to think that it’s almost over and I’ll soon be thrown into the real world.
I’m not too sure what I want to do exactly. I’m debating if I want to go straight to Grad school or try to find a full-time job. But I also just want to save a much money as possible and just travel. We’ll just have to see as the next few months progress.
How I’m preparing for this semester:
Luckily my last semester doesn’t seem to be too difficult. The courses I’m taking are Strategic Marketing, Public relations, Analytic Marketing, and a Japanese art and culture class. Plus I’m off from school two days a week! As long as I stay on top of my class I should be fine. But here’s my list of preparing for this semester
1. Staying on top of my studies
So far I’ve done very well with my classes. I’ve Never gotten anything lower than a B (knock on wood). My goal is to keep that streak going one more time.
One of my goals is to stay organized throughout the whole semester. I also start off strong the first weeks of the semester and then slack halfway through. One way of doing that is keeping a bullet journal. Lets hope senioritis doesn’t get in my way.
2. Job searching
Right now I’m applying for jobs and hopefully I’ll land something by the time I graduate. If that doesn’t work out, I’ll try to find a second part time job, save up, and possibly travel to a few places.
I’m also thinking about launching a site selling stickers and maybe trying to freelance for people. If you’ve followed my other post, you’ll know that I’ve been teaching myself graphic design. So far my progress has been good. I would love to make a shop and sell stickers, pins, and maybe shirts once I strengthen my skills. I’m even going to get business cards made.

3. Better Money Habits
I’m going to try my best and stick with a monthly budget. I tell myself this every year and semester. I have bad habit of spending money based on convenience. There’s a Starbucks right outside the library. It’s so hard not to buy from them.
I’m trying to save up enough money to go somewhere for spring break again. My art class is doing a spring break trip to Japan. Fingers crossed that I can make that trip happen
4. Spend time with friends
This is my last semester so I’m going to try and spend as much time with my friends before we all go our separate ways. A Lot of my friends live in different parts of the state so it’s not always easy to visit them. Plus I probably won’t have a schedule so flexible ever again.
I’m trying to stay involved with clubs and try to network with as many people as possible. Who knows some connections could lead to a job somewhere.
