How To Prepare Yourself For The New Semester

Is there anything actually good about school?

How To Prepare Yourself For The New Semester

Yes, you heard me right. While there are many amazing things that come with fall (pumpkins, lattes, the leaves changing, comfy sweatshirts, you name it) this also means that the fall school semester is upon us, and summer is coming to a close once again. Realizing this, I've chosen to carefully craft a few tips to fully prepare you for the whiplash feeling you'll have when classes are only a week away.

1. Keep a box of tissues near.

You know, to mourn the life you had during the summer.

2. Consider purchasing a lot of pens.

Let's face it, I'm lucky if I end the week with the same pen I used at the start of it.

3. Try going to bed at an earlier time.

So those 8 A.M.'s don't hit you like a ton of bricks.

4. Budget for groceries.

Ramen isn't good three times a day, I promise.

5. Know your schedule.

Don't be that guy who's supposed to be in math but instead winds up in the history of John Lennon from 1970-1972.

6. Make a motivational playlist.

Trust me, it works.

7. If you don't have a pet, befriend a person who does.

This one is pretty self-explanatory.

8. Go ahead and pre-order your books.

It just makes everything a lot easier.

9. Make time for yourself.

School is super important, but don't forget to relax if things start to get hard to manage. It'll help clear your head.

10. There are 111 days until Halloween, 134 until Thanksgiving, and 166 until Christmas.

This, too, is self-explanatory.

And before you know it, another semester will have flown by!

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
