10 New Semester Resolutions For Girls In College

10 New Semester Resolutions For The Girl Who Struggles In College

New school year, new you.


I get it, keeping those resolutions from January has been hard. The good news is that a new semester is basically a redo and a second shot at seriously going to the gym everyday. So, get organized, eat healthy, and do you this year! Make some resolutions this semester that are actually not that hard to keep.

You deserve to be at your best, girl!

1. Make more friends.


Opening up and introducing yourself to more people can create so many possibilities. You could be making a lifelong friend in class and just not know it yet.

2. Join a club.


Colleges and universities are full of clubs and opportunities that you can learn so much from to not only advance your skills, but have fun while doing it.

3. Strive for the best in your classes.


Stop turning in half-hearted assignments an hour before they're due. Instead, try to make time for them throughout the week, even if it is for a couple of hours. It makes all the difference I promise.

4. Work on your resume.


The big girl world is not that far away and keeping an updated resume on hand for that job or internship that comes up is something that you could be very grateful for in the end.

5. Focus on you.


Ignore the weird boys and drop the toxic friends. College is all about you and no one else has any right to infringe on your happiness and success.

6. Fit the gym in your schedule.


Working out is good for not only the body, but your mind, too. Taking a workout buddy is always a good time, too.

7. Prepare healthy meals and snacks.


Meal prep Sundays and smoothies for breakfast can make a huge difference in your day to day routine. You'll notice a change compared to eating 5 slices of pepperoni pizza for lunch.

8. Keep yourself organized.


Mental notes can only carry you so far. Buy a cute planner or notebook and ensure that you have all the right due dates for those big assignments and events that you don't want to miss out on.

9. Show gratitude.


Of course your parents know that you're not a spoiled brat, but take the time to thank them for buying you groceries. Thank the custodian that asked if they could take your trash. Thank the Resident Assistant that knocked on your door and told you that they're available if you need anything.

10. Maintain a good sleep schedule.


Go to bed early and tell your friends you'll go out with them on the weekend. Beauty sleep is a real thing, ladies. Make sure you get enough of it, so you can ace this year!

Have you noticed that you're drinking a lot more than you used to during the Pandemic? You're not alone.

I too in recent weeks have noticed that I'm drinking more than normal, and earlier in the day. I've started having a glass of wine with lunch a few days a week, something I never used to do. Although, a recent Odyssey survey shows that most Americans are starting to drink between 4 and 8 pm.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
