The start of a new year presents an opportunity to rebuild yourself from the last. A resolution is meant for an individual to set goals for the new year ahead. For college students, each year can bring forth a new collection of stress and anxiety. However, by setting resolutions, one can prepare themselves for a better semester. These 19 resolutions are simple enough to follow and stick to within your hectic college life.

Strive for better grades.

Whether it be that 4.0 or just better than last semester, do the best you can do.

Avoid procrastination.

On anything. Reading, writing, or studying. Stay proactive on your to-do list.

Do not wait till the last minute to study for an exam.

Prepare yourself ahead of time. Create a studying schedule to avoid stressing.

No more all-nighters.

No brainer.

Go to professors' office hours.

Read more outside of school. 

Don't just stick to the required reading of the syllabus, expand your options within literature.

Don't skip your morning class to sleep.

Don't stay up all night binging Netflix on a week night.

Instead of watching tv until 3 a.m., get some rest. Sleep is more important than the next episode.

Get an adequate amount of sleep.

Strive for seven hours of sleep instead of three with four cups of coffee. Although, don't think that allows for you to sleep through class to get those hours -- go to bed earlier.

 Get out of the house on the weekends. 

Instead of parking it on the couch all weekend, go explore or try something new.

 Exercise more.

Take advantage of the campus gym, try yoga, or even go for a jog.

 Avoid wearing the same clothes for multiple days in a row.

We all guilty of the "my Tuesday/Thursday classes don't see what I wore to my Monday/Wednesday/Friday class."

 Call your parents.

 Cook for yourself.

Make an actual meal for yourself instead of ramen or cereal. Try healthier options instead of fast food or the dining hall.

 Focus on your mental health.

Take time to relax and care for yourself. Take a nap, a bath, or do a face mask.

 Stay hydrated.

Drink more water!

 Stay organized.

Whether it be keeping a detailed calendar/ planner or keeping up with a clean room. An organized life can lead to a clear mind.

Make time for your friends.

Learn to budget. 

Set financial goals for each month. College budgets are tights and it's time to organize them for future stability.

Now get ready to welcome a new you in 2019!

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.
