19 Mantras to Get You Through 2019

I’ve decided that this semester will be MY semester. I’m focusing on my classes, my mental and physical health and building strong relationships with my friends. The first half of freshman year wasn’t so great me, so I’m taking it in my own hands to turn that around. Here are a few of my favorite quotes that help me stay in this mindset, along with other Her Campus George Mason writers’ attitudes towards handling the new semester. Use these as your social media bio, Instagram caption, recite it to yourself during tough times, or print it out and hang it on your wall!
