Getting Through Finals

Some pointers to remind you that you need to make sure you take care of yourself

Getting Through Finals

Finals are coming up and it is always a stressful time for people studying. You need to make sure that you take care of yourself and not only get what you need to do done, but take a breather too. Don’t be afraid to step away from your work for an hour or two and reward yourself. Here is a short list of things you can do to distance yourself from your work so you don’t feel so pressured.

1. Short breaks can be rewarding and will help you push through what you need to do.

When I had to wrote sections of my Junior I.S. I was able to push through by reading comics for every paragraph I wrote, and the next thing I knew I had written five pages. Little short breaks that you can take in between can really help with what you might be doing.

2. If you’re getting stressed out by the amount of work you have, take a break.

Even if you haven’t gotten much done, you’re not going to do much else if you can’t motivate yourself. Clear your mind of stress and take out time to spend with people you want to be with. But of course make sure that you will get back on track and get your work done.

3. Do what you need to make yourself comfortable, take your time and set yourself in a nice room with a warm drink.

Don’t worry about wasting time to take care of yourself. If you need to shower or make a cup of tea to help you wind down don’t be afraid to do so.

4. Even if you have a lot of work do and it’s still super late you need your sleep.

Put your health first and go to bed. You need to sleep to let yourself relax and give your body rest. All nighters can help you get through you work, but you need to recognize that you need to take care of yourself because if you don’t you’re going to feel worse the next day.

5. Avoid coping with alcohol or any kind of substance to help you get by.

You don’t want to grow dependent on something to help you get through your work. I know it can be stressful to try and get through your studies, but you need to recognize that it’s not healthy to push through in that way.

I know that this can be one of the hardest times of the year, but you have to remember that your mental health is important and that you need to take care of yourself. Get what you know you can get done first and work as hard as you can, but remember that you need to give yourself room to breath. Take a second to remember that there are plenty of people who care about you a lot and that you can go to them for support if you need it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
