How To Make This Academic Year The Best In Just 5 Simple Steps

As the 2019 academic calendar approaches, these are some things to keep in mind to make it most successful.

How To Make This Academic Year The Best In Just 5 Simple Steps

The stress about the new school year is finally here. Here are some ways to manage stress and everything that is school.

1. Have a Good Group of Friends

This is something that I feel is overlooked when it comes to school but having a group of friends is something that is so important. Rather its studying together or taking breaks from school all together, this is important to keep your sanity.

2. Try to Mentally Prepare Yourself for a Successful Year

Mentally preparing is something that is so important. The fact is, if you are not in the correct mindset to take on school then you won't succeed.

We are all dreading the new school year, and I get that but you have got to have something to look forward to even if it's as minor as new outfits or chatting with your favorite teacher.

3. Pick Classes that You Enjoy

This cannot be controlled all the time, but if possible, always choose classes that spark your interest. This will make you not totally dread going to class.

4. Invest in a Good Planner

A planner is something that will keep your life together. Not only keep your homework assignments straight but also give you the opportunity to plan things outside of your busy class life.

5. Practice Self Care

This is easily the most important thing on this list and I could honestly write a whole article about why practicing self-care is so important (coming soon). School is rough.

Take time to get away from the books and stress. Go on nature walks or go get ice cream with the gals (See Step 1). This will make you successful in literally anything you do.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
