6 Reasons Why You Should Graduate Early

From Preschool to Elementary School to Middle School to High School then college, our whole life is filled with school. Basically, five days out of the week everything is about school. Heck, sometimes even the weekends are about school. For instance, when you have to do extra homework or you have to study, sometimes it might be on the weekends. School can be draining and exhausting and sometimes you feel over it and just want to be done with it already. Although you don't have to go to college, you might want a better education so you pursue it even though you might want to be done as quick as you came in. So why not take more credits than you need each semester, heck even take some in the summer, so you can graduate a semester early? Then you could finally be done. Or maybe you want more school, but you could have time to think about that if you finish early. Who wants to finish on time when you can be ahead of the game.

Here are 6 reasons why you should graduate early from college.

1. You're finally FREE

Did I mean to say free? Yes, yes I did! Because you're finally free from school! You no longer have to attend anymore! It's exciting, but also scary at the same time because it will be new for you. Ever since you were three years old you went to school. It's basically your whole life minus two years.


2. You get to spend more time on what you want to do

Being able to graduate early, you can think about what you truly want to know. Even though you worked hard on your major, maybe you are still trying to figure out what path to take and this is where you can have that extra semester to think about and really dedicate this time to work on yourself.


3. You can get started early on a graduate program

Maybe you do know what you want to do and after you graduate early, you can go right into a graduate program so you can get through that early as well.


4.You can travel

Getting out of college, you want to be able to see the world. Especially since you have been cooped up in studying forever. Once you graduate you are ready to set sail and if you graduate early you can pursue traveling even earlier.


5. You can get a job more easily

Usually, there are fewer people who graduate early because they usually graduate on time or late. Since there are fewer people graduating there is less competition for jobs.


6. Discover Yourself

It is finally your time to discover who you are, on your own. You have done everything that was expected from you from your parents, but now it is your turn. It is your turn to find things that you want to expect from yourself.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

5669

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4267

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
