The Fourth Quarter of 2016

Whether 2016 has been the year of your life or one you’d rather forget, we still have some time to make the best of it. We have just less than three months until 2017 is going to bring us some new hopes and dreams but let’s not forget this time we have left in 2016! Here’s four ways that you can make the best of it and have a smooth transition into the new year!


1. Get Organized 


It’s really important to make sure you are organized for whatever life throws at you! Stay ahead of your assignments, keep track of what you have for the rest of the semester, and don’t forget to take some time to relax. If you pre-plan you’ll be more likely to have time for things you want to do instead of staying up until three in the morning writing a paper. 



2. Forgive someone who did wrong to you


I never said this list would be easy! Forgiveness is really important. Not only does it help you have closure, it helps each party involved feel okay. Even though it may be hard, the end result will make it all worth it. 



3. Check something off your bucket list


Even if your year was filled with a ton of bucket list item, it never hurts to get one more checked off the list. Remember, this doesn’t have to be anything big but something as simple as eating at a restaurant you’ve been dying to go to. 



4. Have a day just for you


You deserve it! Take a day just for yourself. Turn off your phone, make sure you have nothing pending to-do so your mind can be cleared and just relax! Go to the nail salon, read a book you’ve been reading the reviews for but haven’t had enough time to actually read, or take a nice long walk. It’s good to let your thoughts surround you and focus on just how great you are!



No matter what 2016 has meant to you, make the best of what it has to offer in these last few months of the year!

St Vincent '18

Hello there! I am the Campus Correspondent of the Her Campus chapter at Saint Vincent College. As a senior psychology major, I've made the most of my time in undergrad and am excited for all the doors I have opening ahead of me. I can definitely thank Her Campus for giving me invaluable skills. As a future psychologist, I hope that my articles (and the chapter's) are able to make you feel empowered, motivate you to start a conversation, and be kind. As a hero of mine has said, "If you do not take control over your time and your life, other people will gobble it up. If you don't prioritize yourself, you constantly start falling lower and lower on your list."- Michelle Obama. Be the change you want to see in the world, and smile. Always smile!
