5 Things To Help You Get Through Finals

In the current world there are so so so many things to argue about. But everyone in the entire world who has gone to college can agree on one thing: finals suck. Whether this is your first time taking finals or your last, there are a few things you can buy to help you go through finals time.

1. Naked Juice

The various juice flavors that Naked offers give a lot of options for your personal taste. Personally, I like the "mighty mango" and "blue machine," which are both fairly sweet and don't have too much apple juice in them, which is something I don't like. Make sure to check the ingredients and nutrition label and get some nutrients in your body.

2. Melatonin

Whether you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, melatonin can help you. Make sure to ask your doctor first, but melatonin had helped me a lot. There are different doses, so I would suggest 3 mg to start with. You can go up to 10 mg which is best for if you're going to get 8 hours of sleep or more.

3. Chia Bars

These things are lifesavers. The coffee ones are my favorites. Each of these are filled with flavor and help give you a little energy boost through the day. They're so worth trying out.

4. Momma Chia

Continuing on the chia run... These drinks are so delicious and easy to grab and go. However, take note they do need to keep cool, so that makes things a little more difficult than the chia bars.

5. Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender oil is one of my favorite things ever. This oil can be used in a plethora of ways. I like to put it behind my ears and on my temples and my wrists. But, I also will sometimes drop some in some boiling water on the stove and it will make the apartment smell soooooo nice. Lavender oil helps relax you so it is perfect to smell before a big final or before you go to bed.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
