A Few Ways To Be More Productive for the Semester

College is all about a time to teach yourself how to adult....

One key thing in adulting is being productive. Here are my tips and tricks to stay as productive as possible.


Organization by kristen bell


I can honestly not count the amount of times I had to shuffle MULTIPLE times through drawers, bags, and stacks just for one document. When I organize it digitally, it makes looking for a certain item so much easier! I also have storage bins! They can be so cute in your room and help keep thinks in their place.

2.  Wake Up and Go to Bed Consistently

When I go to bed and wake up around the same time every day, I get happier. It makes me feel more well-rested and productive. It is much easier to keep up with a morning routine if you aren't sleeping in till 1pm. If you feel like you cannot fall asleep easily enough, take melatonin! I take Olly restful sleep gummies.

3.  Have a Morning Routine

I thrive off having a solid morning routine. I usually wake up, wash my face, put on my skin care products (side note a skin care routine is ALWAYS a good idea), brush my teeth then go on to make my breakfast and get ready for the rest of the day. Even having that much order in your life helps you feel better about your day.

4.  Make your Bed

How I wish making your bed went...


Making your bed when you wake up is key!!! When I do it, personally it deters me from getting back into bed. Usually after I do this ill clean up my room and straighten up my house.

5.  Make Breakfast!!!!!

Breakfast is by far the most important meal of the day. It sets the tone for the rest of your day! I would recommend eating something that has nutritional value. I always love coffee with almond milk with Avocado and egg on Ezekiel bread. I feel like giving my Body a good amount of healthy fats, carbs, and protein helps me stay fuller longer throughout the day.

6.  Be a morning Gym Goer

Being Healthy is always in style


Honestly, I know people reading this are think "Hell to the no" but going to the gym is something we need to do to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keeping our mental and physical health in check. Personally, when I get home after a long day, the last thing I want to do is get up and go back to do something else. When I go in the morning it seems to go by way faster as well as give me a nice endorphin boost for the day.



Geez I cannot stress this enough. When I use my planner it so much easier to plan out your days and keep up with events and due dates. Whenever I find myself not using my planner or the calendar on my phone, I miss events, are late or miss due dates which causes me to stress out. By writing it down, I am less frazzled and can have easy breezy days.

This is my personal way to help stay on top of ish but I recommend you use some of these ideas to adapt in your lives! I read a lot on how to increase productivity so what I have laid out is how I adapt that into my life.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
