7 Things I'll Think Twice About Before Complaining Next Semester

Because I'd have an 8:30 every day just to be back on campus.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the stress of being a junior in a rigorous nursing program will ht me like a ton of bricks. Especially the part where I had online clinical this semester so I'll be waking up at 5am the first Monday of school and have no idea what I am getting myself into. However, from where I am sitting now, I would sacrifice everything- a full nights sleep, my own bed, even delicious home cooked meals just to be back at college training for the rest of my life with some of my best friends. What I would give to run to one more school mass after a study session and then run for mass to a sorority chapter meeting.

1. Not getting a full nights sleep. 

Getting 8 hrs is way overrated when it means I'm 3000 miles away from my many of my friends (I love my friends here but I can't see them rn anyway because of quarantine) and I'm not staying up late excited and scared out of my mind for that first clinical day on the hospital floor.

2. Dining Hall Food/ Coffee 

Don't get me wrong I like having more time to cook and enjoy my mom's homecooked meals but I really miss grabbing a coffee and a bagel in between classes with my girls.

3. Large Distances In Between Classes 

Because atleast I'll be going to an in person class and not zoom university.

4. Busy Libraries/Study Spaces

Honestly after quarantine I might just plop myself down near anyone and start working - human contact!

5. Long/ Crowded lines 

Do I want (need) my coffee ASAP? Yes. But I will relish in being able to stand in line next to other students and not being wearing a mask or being hyper aware of my distance.

6. Early classes

Okay, this one can still be tough (hello 5 AM clinical wakeup) but atleast I'm actually going to a class and not just back and forth from my living room to the bedroom. Maybe time will stop being such a blur

7. Extra Activities 

I'm involved in a lot. I was never one to want to spend my college years only in a classroom and in an apartment/dorm. I feel like you miss out on so much growth and learning that way. I like to be involved and feel like I am doing something or making a difference. Sometimes it gets really really overwhelming but right now I really wish I was working a service shift for my sorority or giving a freshman a tour of the nursing school.

I Talked To Nikki Pebbles About PCOS-Friendly Workouts, And Low-Impact Is The Key

Hormone health impacts everything, including the workouts that are best for you.


Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) deal with a lot of uncertainty in their life. Between hormonal ups and downs, unpredictable weight gain, painful cyst ruptures, and infertility worries, their bodies are often under a lot of stress! A common symptom of PCOS is having a hard time losing weight — many women find themselves frustrated (or in pain) from traditional workout plans.

I talked to Nikki Pebbles, a certified personal trainer and group fitness coach, to talk about the kind of workouts that are best for women who are dealing with PCOS.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
