6 Things To Do Today In Preparation For Your School Week

Cleaning your room and making sure everything is organized is a great way to start the week.

6 Things To Do Today In Preparation For Your School Week

Ahh, the dreaded Sunday night. The weekend fun is over and your attention shifts towards school starting back up tomorrow morning. Sure, you can binge-watch your current Netflix show or you can take these simple steps to make your week a little easier.

1. Plan out your week.

Make a list, fill in your calendar, do what you need to do so you know what's coming at you this week. If you have any exams, maybe pick a time dedicated solely to studying. Use this time also to reflect on what you want to see yourself do this week. Maybe you haven't connected with a friend in a while; take the time to shoot them a text and hang this week. It's all about being proactive and taking the initiative.

2. Set goals for yourself.

Every day should be a challenge to better yourself. This Sunday, set a goal that is realistic and that you genuinely wish to accomplish. As an example, I am super busy this week and know I probably won't get to the gym as many times as I would like, so this week my goal is to stay away from fried food. It's not super challenging but it will push me to think more about what I am eating and be a healthier version of myself. However, your goal doesn't have to be health-related – it can be about putting more effort into your school work or doing more community service.

3. Plan your outfits out.

This one might sound a little like a #tbt to middle school but planning out nice outfits to wear will, in turn, make you more productive. Just think about it, when you dress nicely you feel better about yourself. When you feel better about yourself you are more productive. I like to just set aside a few nice tops that I plan to wear that week. I will also put together some cute outfits I can wear to the gym to remind me to actually go.

4. Clean up.

Cleaning your room and making sure everything is organized is a great way to start the week. No one wants to come home from a long day of classes to a messy room, and it sure doesn't encourage productivity. The habit is a hard one to start but taking five to ten minutes each night to clean up will save you a lot of time and stress.

5. Pick out something new to try.

Going to the same classes, eating at the same dining hall, and sleeping in the same dorm every week can get repetitive after a while. To combat that I like to try at least one new thing each week. This could be a new place to eat, a new activity on campus, even a new person to hang out with. By switching up your routine you can not only experience new things but also avoid the trap lots of college students find themselves in. Don't get stuck in the same boring routine – switch it up!

6. Relax!

Have free time at night? Relax and have fun! Put on a face mask, watch a movie, do what makes you happy. The best way to assure you have a good week is to go into it with a positive attitude.

Unfortunately, the time is here. It is officially the spring semester, and you know what that means: lots and lots of studying. If you are in the same situation I am, then you are probably doing your 3rd semester of online/hybrid school. Not being at school or not attending classes in person definitely makes learning and studying a lot harder. Because I know this struggle all too well, I put together a list of study tips to hopefully help us all succeed a little more this semester.

I Have An Eating Disorder And I Refuse To Let It Kill Me

Even at my lowest, the number on the scale never seemed low enough... but was it ever worth the risk of losing my life?

Trigger warning: This article discusses topics that may be triggering for some readers.

I looked down at my thumb today. I know haven't been eating enough. I told everyone I would get all my vitamins and calories in. I totally wanted to eat more of the guacamole I bought the other day, but I counted what I had eaten and those numbers seemed a little too high. I decided I didn't need the extra helping, so I went to bed and the guacamole went bad.

When pursuing a degree that most deem 'useless' or a 'waste of time' there happens to be a lot of self-doubt and fear, especially with the pending doom of graduation around the corner. I remember when I was about to graduate from college with a Bachelor's in Acting, I was absolutely terrified.

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.
