Keep Productive in your Summer

Hello Brilliant Minds,

With finals over, I decided to write on a few things you can involve yourself in to

ensure a productive spring and summer break, especially during a pandemic.

1. Online Courses

So many universities and schools offer courses during the break, either part or

full time. It is especially useful for part-time university students trying to fulfill

the rest of their credits. However, my advice is to make sure you only do

courses you are sure you can handle with your pre-existing schedule. Spring

and summer courses are only five weeks, and the workload is quite a lot.

2. Volunteer Experience

Find a charity or institution you are passionate about and get involved. You

could also take part in an internship or any community programme. Not only is

it a fun experience, but it also adds experience to your CV.

3. Part-Time Job

What better way to make money than to get a part-time or summer job. You get

to make new connections and meet new friends. It also increases your


4. Plan for the Next Semester

You can start planning your schedule for next year, including whatever clubs,

societies or work experience you will be involved in. You can plan your class

schedule to accommodate your various interests. Planning ahead of time

like this helps you deal better under stress when it arises.

5. Miscellaneous:

Finally, the break is an opportunity to nurture your interests. Whether it’s

sports, fitness, athletics, art or music, you have the opportunity to have

mindless fun and focus on your mental health. School is draining, and a break is

always necessary.

Have a wonderful, safe and well-deserved break!
