Encouragement for the Struggling College Students

This finals week is not going to be easy, but give it your best shot and you'll do great!

I'm struggling just as much as all of you believe it or not, but here's some advice. Take a deep breath. It's stressful, but in a week everything will be perfect. You've spent countless hours for the past sixteen weeks studying for every exam and at least the past week preparing for the finals. It may seem like a miserable life now, but it'll be better once this week is over. Put everything you've learned into those exams, focus, and SLEEP. Sure, most college students don't sleep much during finals week because, "Oh my gosh I have so much to study for!" I promise you, you're going to better off in the long run if you get a few hours of sleep before your finals rather than if you take a thirty minute cat nap because you can't keep your eyes open any longer. For some of us, this is our first rodeo and we're panicking quite a bit. Truth is, it's everything we've learned this last half of the semester or the whole semester, so just sit there, think through the question and answer it to the best of your ability. Do not leave any question blank, as most of the questions are worth at least four points. If you're confused on a question, come back to it. Here at Wittenberg, we have three hours to complete the exam, so I am more than positive that you have time to skip a few questions to save yourself from thinking too hard. Rest, study, and put your mind to it. You can do anything you put your mind to. Don't take too long studying on one subject, because for most of us, we have a lot more than one exam. Take breaks; if you don't you're more than likely going to burn yourself out.

On a positive note, less than a week away from getting to go home! Christmas is less than two weeks away, and we'll be shoveling mounds of food into our mouths. We get to spend time with our families and enjoy the company of some we may have not seen in a long time.

Although this week is very stressful, it is possible. You can do anything you put your mind to. Don't give up now, after all you've suffered this whole semester pretty well. Go out with a bang and show each and every one of those exams what you're made of, you got this!

Sincerely,

The struggling college student

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
