10 Things Every College Kid Does Right BEFORE Parents' Weekend

10 Things Every College Kid Does Right BEFORE Parents' Weekend

Prepare for another weekend of parents and cheesy activities.

1. Starve themselves so their family has to take them out.

If there's one way to avoid eating campus food, then this is it. Plus, it means that you get to eat somewhere much higher than your usual pay grade.

2. ‎Take a shower for the first time in a week.

This is college. What time is there to stay clean every day? Anything to keep our parents from dramatically whipping out the Fabreeze.

3. ‎Go to the gym.

"I go three times a week," you lie through impeccably clenched teeth.

4. ‎Try to get rid of their eye bags.

"So this is where I sleep...for about eight or nine hours every night. Even on weekends!"

5. ‎Take boatloads of Vitamin C so they don't look sick.

"*coughs* That wasn't a cough. I, uh...choked on something. Air. Dust. Weird things going around, y'know?"

6. ‎Stock up on food and drink.

For the kids without visiting parents that don't want to have to hassle for a seat in the dining hall.

7. ‎Fake friendships.

Let's be real, the worst thing is having to explain to your parents that you have no friends. It's embarrassing for you and them.

8. ‎Get rid of their hangovers.

"No, Mom, I swear, I'm not hungover, I just have a headache -!"

9. ‎Clean their room.

Clean your room, or have your mom clean it and never be able to find a single thing again.

10. Hide all of the alcohol.

They're gonna check in the closet.

Education System in India

Current Education System in India

Education as it's said is the key foundation of a child's future. Education system in India lays down a exceptional foundation of a child's education so very excellently by focusing on not just one but giving commensurate importance to all subjects even in the early stages of schooling.

With new technologies coming up like every single day, system of education in India and worldwide is changing rapidly. With the introduction of digital teaching appliances, classrooms are now being turned into smart-classes.

Impact of internet has totally changed the idiosyncrasy and praxis of education in India as well as all over the world. Students too proffer online education rather than waking up early every morning to go to school.

With the investiture of over thousands of new international private schools, it is also a great step towards opening a new path to outer world for Indian students to compete on an international platform. Not only this facility motivates them but also gives them the opportunity and confidence to represent themselves on an international platform.

Education is now seen as a better way of investing money. The cost of education, be it in a government or a private school has increased a lot and is likely to increase much more in coming years. But none can ignore the fact that "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest".

The 'Annual Education Budget' of the government has increased a lot over the years. Government has allocated Rs 85,010 crore as the Education Budget for the year 2018-19 starting from 1 April.

Though 'Education System in India' is prone to many ups and downs but still our country has produced some brilliant gems to be admired by the world.

An Argument For Relaxation

Please, take a break!

Hey, you! Yes, you! Reading this article right now! I'm guessing that you're procrastinating for some reason right now –– I can relate.

After all, I am procrastinating studying for a test by writing this article. We're all in the same boat, and that's why I feel like I can share something with you. Nothing too deep, nothing too dramatic, just a truth that I discovered recently that I think might help you out. Ready for it?

Ok, here it goes: you can take a break.

That seems obvious at first glance: "Of course I can take a break!" you say. "Why, I take a break every half hour or so to check Instagram!" And I support those kinds of breaks, the mindless ones where you don't need to think as hard. However, the kind of break I'm talking about is the one that takes up more than five minutes. Instead, I want you to find time to take break that is far more substantial, one where you can spend time with friends or nap or read or go for a run or just do something that feels good to you, even if you haven't finished up all of your homework yet.

This sort of break takes a good sense of balancing, of course: you can't just ignore all your work while relaxing. Instead, try to find a good time to set down your calculus equations and history essays so you can recharge and refocus before finally finishing everything up. This sort of practice might take some time to figure out fully, but I promise you, when you finally are able to balance work and play, you'll feel like your life is far more fun (and focused!) than it was before you could both study and spend time with those you love.

This article isn't meant to provide step by step instructions, because taking breaks is a personal experience: instead, try to find your own system, and be sure to keep up the practice until you can finally say that you've mastered the art of the study break.
