Five Things You Should Do Before The School Year Ends

A to-do list for the final push before summer!

Five Things You Should Do Before The School Year Ends

Before the school year ends, there are a lot of things that must be done. Here's the beginning of your to-do list for the last three weeks.

1. A not-so-fun thought, but you’re going to have to study for exams.

The semester is almost over! I know you’ve been working really hard, but there are still a few papers, exams, presentations, or art pieces to finish. It’s a really overwhelming and stressful time, so start small! Set a time to look over your class notes or make a study group. Make a list of all of the steps you need to complete to finish out the year and then do them one at a time (and continue to get sleep!)

2. Make sure to have one last fun daytime outing with your friends.

Since you hang out with them every day, you might feel like you have plenty of time to spend with them, but the days are going to go by so much faster than you think it will. Some ideas: Have a nice afternoon/evening long picnic, go for a hike or bike ride, or explore a new area of town.

3. Make a start of summer playlist.

This can be a nice study break during exam week that'll relax you for your final's week stress, as well as the long car/plane ride back home or wherever you'll spend the next three months.

4. Thank someone who's been an influential part of your year.

Whether it's a friend, professor, parent, or someone you don't know very well but admire, let them know you've appreciated them this year. I know it sounds cheesy, but it will be a nice connection to make and it will stay with that person forever and it can be something they think back on fondly that can really help in times of need.

5. Find as many dogs as you can.

We should always pet as many puppies as possible.

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
