5 Tips To Get Your Through The End Of The Semester

It's May, summer fever has hit, and the heat is rolling in. The end of the semester is here, finals are about to begin, and within such a short amount of time so much is expected of us. In order to get you through the end of this year and on your way to summer vacation, here are some tips!

1. Stay Focused

I know it's super hard to get tangled up in the excitement of summer, but everything you did up until this point is about to close in and you have to remain focused in order to tie it up nicely and go out in a bang. Remain patient, and everything will go your way.You can do it, I promise!

2. Get Enough Sleep

You're probably laughing as you read this right now, but I promise, as hard as it is, you need to get enough sleep. In order to function properly, your body needs rest, not 3 or 4 hours a night (We're all guilty of it), but 6-8. And trust me it is possible if you make time for it.

3. Time Management

One of the most important things to get you through the semester is being able to manage your time. Stay organized, allocate time for what is important, and stay on top of things. It's the only way.

4. Eat Healthy

If you want your body to work to full potenial you need to nourish it, (you should do this all the time but most importantly now). Stay away from junk food, despite it's convenience, and stick to fruits, vegetables, and protein.

5. Stay Positive

You will get through the finals and before you know it you will enjoying your summer. You MUST stay positive, because over stressing and worrying will do nothing but make things worse.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
