Option 2: I originally chose to come to Elizabethtown because of the people. Everyone on this campus was warm and kind when I arrived and I ultimately felt like I fit in. I also chose this school because it had a very good program for my major. Being an Occupational Therapy major, there were not many colleges that offered a 5 year masters program. On top of the fact that they offered a 5 year masters program, they are one the best in the state. They have one of the highest board passage rates of the schools that I was looking at and that also helped me to decide on Elizabethtown.
Throughout my education, I have not had a hard time motivating myself to complete my work, however, being act college there has been a slight challenge now that I do not have anyone telling me to do my homework. I have motivated myself to do my work by giving myself goals. These goals include getting a paper done by a certain time during the day so the rest of the day I can relax. Other ways I motivate myself is by saying once you get your work done, you can watch Netflix or go to a club meeting or hang out with friends. These tactics seem to work the best for me because I overall enjoy spending time with others and that is a treat for me. I also have been motivated by my roommate because when she knows I am not feeling motivated or I am stressed, she leaves me little sticky notes with words of encouragement and positivity.
These are the ways that I have motivated myself to stay on top of my work and why I have chosen to come to Elizabethtown to study.
