Like many other college students, I have little experience with online courses, let alone taking them from my childhood home. Despite the change, I am determined to make the most out of this situation by placing a lot of focus and passion into my academics. I have been thinking a lot lately about how I will maintain my usual productivity under such different circumstances than I am normally used to. So, how do I plan to remain productive in a time of change and uncertainty? Here are the three things I am doing to stay productive and motivated.

How I’ve Been Spending My Spring Break

I originally planned to go to Vermont for a few days with some friends from the University of Massachusetts Amherst during spring break. Despite living in New England the entirety of my life, I have never been to Vermont before so I was excited about this trip. Sadly, with the current state of the world, my friends and I ultimately decided that it would be best to postpone the trip not only for our well-being but for those around us. It was a heartbreaking decision since it would have been my last trip with my friends up at UMass Amherst given that we are moving to online learning after the break, but it was what needed to be done. 

A lot has changed in not only my life but the lives of everyone in the world. While my spring break plans have drastically altered, I still wanted to have an enjoyable and normal break as possible. So, how did I spend my spring break? Here are the three main things I did to make the most out of my time off.
