It's fall; the leaves on campus are beautiful shades of red, orange, and brown; the seasonal wind swirls around campus creating a wind tunnel, which is at times inconvenient, but is nonetheless a staple of our wonderful campus. With almost two months of classes under your belt, you may feel that you are finally in the swing of the semester. Just as you feel a sense of confidence in this current semester, here comes that time to think about choosing classes for spring semester. For most people, that is when the panic sets in: What classes are available? What are the required courses for my major? What if I can’t get into a class? HOW DO I EVEN REGISTER?? Take a deep breath. This is easier than it seems.

Congratulations – you have finally made it to college! After a long and grueling applications process, you have selected a university that matches you and your interests and that you expect will help you succeed. Such a weight off of your shoulders! Unfortunately, the easy part is over. Now, you have to focus your efforts on choosing a major.

Choosing a major is the most important decision you make at college. Your major is the reason why you are in college and it will prepare you for your future professional life after graduation. Your choice of a major is the difference between becoming a marine biologist or becoming a photographer, or between becoming a psychologist or becoming a mathematician. Your major can determine what you will be going to do for the rest of your life. And yes, I know that statement is rather scary.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people make decisions and perceive the world. The purpose of the MBTI is to explain seemingly random actions a person does and demonstrate how it is actually ingrained in who they are. The MBTI is a really helpful tool in helping someone understand more about themselves, and to understand their personality. The MBTI provides information on what jobs people with your personality type go into, how they deal with stress, how they manage things, how they work, and how they develop relationships.

Using a Planner

Without my planner, I would be completely and utterly lost, disorganized, terrified!  It is my wingman, my other half, my lifeline.  A planner comes in all different shapes and sizes.  It can be used for scheduling appointments; making to-do lists, keeping track of dates, and so much more. Some people might think that having a planner is a hassle and that it is extra work, but what they do not know is that it can keep your whole life on track!
