Whether you are entering as a freshman in college or high school, or elementary school, the back-to-school is back! In stores like Walmart and Target, school supplies are completely stocked waiting for children to go get their fancy rainbow binders. To help ensure that these students start the school year off on the right foot, I have made a list of 11 tips/tricks that will be useful and helpful for you this year!

Tip #1: Develop organizing skills that will benefit YOU

Everything works differently for all students. You should choose the skills that will work best with your needs and schedule. If a system doesn't work, then try again because maybe you may just need more time to get used to it.

Tip #2: Reward Yourself

This will help avoid procrastination!

Tip #3: Avoid distractions at your workplace

This is an important one because this place is strictly used for studying and working.

Tip #4: Use a planner for all your homework and upcoming quizzes and tests

Having all of this in one place will be much easier for you to locate and figure out what is due on what day.

Tip #5: Take quick breaks in between studying 

This will allow you to be more focused on what you are actually preparing for.

Tip #6: Create and save your own study guides 

This is make you understand the content in your own words and allow you to paraphrase things much faster.

Tip #7: Learn how to communicate with your teachers

I know we think our teachers the WORST however in order to be successful in that particular class, you must get to know your teacher and ask for help when you need it.

Tip #8: Using online resources isn't a bad idea

Khan Academy is a very helpful source if you truly don't want to ask your math teacher about a math problem that you are having.

Tip #9: Use phrases while taking notes 

Do not - I repeat - do not write paragraphs for your notes; just make a bullet list of phrases to help you grasp the information.

Tip #10: Make sure you eat breakfast everyday

I know everyone has to wake up early in the morning, but still, that's no excuse to not eating the most important meal.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
