Top 6 Self-Care Tips For The New School Year

Now that the school year is starting back up again, I'm sure a lot of you are worried about handling all the school work you're going to have to deal with. Unfortunately, you can't escape doing your work, but you can follow these easy steps to de-stress after a long week!

1. Try a face mask


Face masks are always something that makes me feel better when I'm stressed and they give your skin a nice glow! When you look good, you feel better - it's science.

2. Make time for friends and family


It's important, especially during the busy school year, to remember to spend time with your friends and family. Taking a break from your work and socializing with people you care about can do a lot to relieve stress during a busy time when it's easy to get caught up in just doing work.

3. Organize your time


Using a planner to organize what you have to do that week is an easy way to make your life less stressful. I used to never write anything down and always worried about forgetting something I had due in one of my classes. When I started making a list of what I had to get done, it kept me on track and I procrastinated less. Also, I got a sense of accomplishment from checking off the things I'd gotten done.

4. Buy new clothes before the school year begins


Creating a new look for a new school year is always fun to do, and you can use your new clothes to express the person you want to be.

5. Listen to music


Just relaxing and listening to my favorite songs helps me to relax when I'm stressed out. It's important to remember that the most simple things really do work!

6. Make more time for yourself 


Finally, remember to make time for just yourself. Whether it's taking a bubble bath, reading a good book, or finally binging that Netflix show you swore you'd start, just make sure to treat yo' self.

Have a great year!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
