Tips in suruving finals week

It's the time of the semester

It is that time of year again. Not Halloween (I wish) nor the winter holidays (I double wish) , but finals. *Collective group of students start to scream* It's ok, reader, you've got this. Here are five study tips for this next week.


Get as much sleep as you can. Use a nap as your break, which I'll get to breaks later. Go to bed earlier. Wake up later, (unless you wake up five minute before a class then, wake a little earlier then). Sleep is important; you will feel better about yourself if the long run . Plus, It is a form of procrastination.


Food is a amazing thing. It proves energy along with a multitude of other things. You can even do it while you're studying but, I would recommend doing it separate. You really don't want to get pizza sauce on your notes or keyboard, do you? Plus, you can eat it your pj's and nobody will judge you.


For each class, a teacher might want you to study a different way. Before starting to study, go the teacher and ask what way they want you to study for the test. This will give you peace of mind and you can breathe a little easier. I would recommend studying for a half . Also, review the material right before you go to bed and first thing in the morning . It will help.

4. Take a break

Make sure that you take a break from studying, whatever way you like. Take a nap, go for a walk, talk with friends go get food, or just breathe. If you over load yourself, you might forget important info or become more tired. Just make sure the break isn't a whole day type thing

Those are my study tips.

Thanks for reading! :)

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
