5 Tips for Productive Summer Days

Just because it is summer, doesn't mean that it's time to lounge and sleep in late everyday. Seize the day!

5 Tips for Productive Summer Days

How to get the most out of your day:

1. Get a good night's rest.


We all complained during the semester how we weren't getting any sleep, so now that it's summer it's time to take advantage of that! Try going to sleep before midnight and allow yourself to rest.

2. Set an alarm.


Get a good night's rest, but don't allow yourself to sleep in until noon. The point is to take advantage of the day you are given, so don't waste it sleeping!

3. Write a to-do list.

As lame as it sounds, writing to-do lists once you wake up are a great way to get your day started. You can organize your thoughts and prioritize what needs to be done in the day.

4. Eat breakfast.


You got up early so you can treat yourself to a nice breakfast. If you're just not a breakfast person, maybe a cup of coffee, tea, or juice to start your day will suffice.

5. Attack your to-do list.


You've been well rested, figured out what you needed to do today, and ate breakfast, now it's time to complete your to-do list. Whether or not you had a million errands or none, you have the time to go do the things you need to do or sit and relax.

The major key to being productive and getting the most out of your day is really to get up early. I know a lot of us students don't jump at the opportunity to wake up early, but trust me, it feels amazing once you're up and have time to spare, rather than always being in a rush and pressed for time. It's summertime, and we should take advantage of every day given to us. Make this summer your best one yet!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
