Look on the good side, see the goodies that has come with you schooling in that particular institution. The parties, the fun, the happy classes, smiling faces of your coursemates, the beautiful nature you see all around in school. Just see the good side and you will realize that you miss that environment.

8. Aim higher

Look at your CGPA. Are you happy with it? Whatever your answer may be, aim higher. Make that resolution to be better when school resumes. Do make resolutions alone, start working towards it.
