6 Tips To Get Through A Hell Week

One will eventually come, so you might as well prepare yourself!

6 Tips To Get Through A Hell Week

You could be the most organized and efficient student, but you're still doomed to be faced with a hell week in college. There will be weeks where there are five tests scheduled, two projects due, and one hundred pages of reading.

And you will be expected to do it all. On top of your other commitments.

I'm not going to lie, those weeks do suck, and you'll probably end up crying. But here are some ways to help you make those weeks a little more manageable.

1. Utilize your calendar.

Using your calendar can help you see these hell weeks ahead of time. Not only could you get some things done ahead of time, but it can also help you mentally prepare for the week.

2. Get things done during the weekend.

If you have a paper due, write it out on Sunday! That way it is out of the way and you have more time to get other things done.

3. Say no to things.

You might have to pass on your rave social this week, but it's okay there will be others. School comes first!

4. Ask others for help.

If you have some important things to do for your club, ask another club member for help. Everyone understands what it feels like to be overwhelmed. It's better to ask for help than to let your club suffer!

5. Hit the library... or your other favorite study spot.

I know you probably feel so that you want to just spend all of your time at home but going to a study spot will help you get into the mindset to grind out all of your assignments!

6. Coffee!

I know this is cheesy, but caffeine will help you through the week! It'll keep you alert and energetic.

Just remember that the feeling is only temporary, and you will get through it!

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
