We are on the verge of summer vacation, and it couldn't come soon enough. However, we must jump the hurdles called: dead week and finals. I know that at some universities they take dead week for what it truly is and have an actual "dead week". With nothing new due and no new material learned. However, my school knows no such thing as what is called dead week. Oh no, we have quizzes, papers, tests, and new material learned in this week! So, I absolutely do not see the point in calling the week before finals week as dead week if the school is not going to take the meaning to heart.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.
