People Get Ready: The end of the semester is coming. What do you need to do before it gets here?
Are you sitting down? As of today, there’s less than two months of classes left in the spring 2013 semester. Less than seven weeks, in fact. That’s not much time to do the dozens and dozens of things we all promised to do “by the end of the year.” Maybe it’s time for a little goal pruning. Instead of trying to get to everything, what’s just one thing you absolutely have to get done before the end of the semester?
Just before spring break, the New School News dropped in at a few of our downtown buildings to ask students from several of the university’s divisions, “What’s one thing you have to get done before the end of the semester?” Here’s what they had to say.
“I want to beat him in every game of chess by the end of the year.”
“Finish filming my thesis project. It’s a documentary on New York’s breaking culture and its representations of masculinity.”
“I’ve been writing a lot of music, so I’d like to release an album before the end of the semester”
“That’s a difficult question, because there’s so much. I have a huge list! So, to finish that list, I guess?”
“I’m thinking yoga. I need to figure out where to go to get certified as an instructor.”
