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.

Giphy

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.

Giphy

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!!!!

Giphy

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

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
