Preparing for the new term in the new year.
We have to be grateful for anything we were through in 2020. We learned a lot in 2020, from how we live our lives to be a better person to how we react to any problems and help each other deal with the most challenging era with Covid-19. We have been taught how to stay apart while virtually keeping our hearts close to each other, close to families, close to friends, and to anyone else who we might know.
This year probably will be challenging. However, it is not the time to give up, isn’t it? I am sure the coming year will be brighter than ever. A new year means the better motivation to achieve more success in our life, right?
There are some tips I can share in preparing ourselves for the new term. As we know that Coventry is now in Tier 4, most of the teaching will be online with some exceptions, such as lab work. However, some campus facilities, for example, the library and study spaces, will remain open. It means that we can study on campus to focus on our work and get some different views instead of staying at home. However, do not forget always to follow government regulations, such as wearing a mask anytime, and remain apart from each other for the sake of our safety.
First of all, check all the potential modules you are interested in on the University of Warwick website. By doing so, we will have a better insight into what the modules covering. You can generally find the previous module resources from the past years that you can use to do prior studying before going to the lectures. Getting started earlier is better than later, don’t you think? Besides, making a list of some potential references is a good idea. Then, we can check these references in the library before making the decision which textbooks are best. Also, discussing the module contents with the lecturer, friends, or the senior who took them is an excellent way to have more information.
It is relatively difficult to get back to work after Christmas breaks and the new year celebration. Thus, making a daily activity plan and stick it in your room is a good idea. The schedule will remind us to be discipline and soon get back to a productive routine. Also, making a weekly goal will be a great plan too. This way, we will have something to achieve and keep us motivated to work. Moreover, try to make a summary of what you have learned daily or possibly weekly to keep you on the right track. Well, do not forget to include some breaks on the schedules. We deserve to rest on the weekend after all work we have done on the weekdays, right? Unfortunately, Sports Hub will be closed following the Tier 4 restrictions. In this case, we can do some regular exercise at home, such as push up, pull up, and scot jumps to keep our body fit. Then, we will be fresh and ready for the coming week.
