Hey there seniors,

November has slipped past us in nearly the blink of an eye, and now it’s time for you regular decision-ers to start turning in your apps, especially with the UC apps due today. As you get everything together, proof-reading your essays, double-checking your resume, collecting your recommendations, or perhaps still plugging away at whole applications, take a breather and remember that it will all be over soon, and in just a couple months those acceptance letters will start rolling in.

You need inspiration to push through the last stretch, and nothing is more inspiring than a soulful Jackson Five song.

To continue this trend of upbeat positivity, a video of a man gleefully dancing in the street.

And of course, you can’t have inspiration without…. motivational movie speeches.

It probably sounds corny, but the best way to get rid of the feeling that you can’t do something is to, well… think happy thoughts.

To top it all off, the most motivational video of all: A reminder of what you are working towards.

Now get back to work! (Cue whip cracking sound)
