Staying focus during the end of the semester can be challenging. For me personally, once it starts to get cold out I don't want to get out of bed or leave my dorm to troop across campus, for an 8 a.m. class. The holidays are coming up and I know that is where every college students mind is at right now. Aside for the holidays, all we can focus on is when our last day of classes is, what we're going to wear, what to get our family and friends for Christmas, and everything we want to do during the holiday break. So here are some tips on how to stay focused on school during the end of the semester slump.

1. Use a planner/calender.

Write down due dates and all your assignments. I write everything down in my planner and on my calendar.

2. Make a to-do list/schedule.

Giphy

Okay so maybe nothing isn't on your to-do list, but make a to-do list for every single day and the times you plan on doing each task.

3. Put your phone and other electronics away.

Unless you need your laptop for a paper or research. Shut off your text notification on your Macbook, if you have one.

4. Don't miss class!!

I know people are getting sick and its freezing out but suck it up and go to class. There's one month left of class/finals.

5. Stop multitasking.

In the end it does NO good. If you're not completed focused on one assignment then you aren't going to do your best. Plus you're going to get side tracked and end up not doing what you're supposed to be doing.

6. Study somewhere quiet and not distracting.

AKA the Library and not your bed room.

7. Take breaks.

Giphy

Everyone needs break or two or however many you need so you aren't going to drive yourself crazy.

8. Go to bed a decent time.

Giphy

I know people have work and other responsibilities but come on, going to bed at 3am, never does any good.

9. Get a study buddy or a study group together.

Giphy

Do NOT pick your best friend, it'll go no where, real quick.

10. STOP PROCRASTINATING!!!!

Do every single assignment as you get them, not the night before they are due.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
