Dear College Students, We Know It's Final Szn But Stop Complaining And Just Do The Damn Thing

Tweeting, posting, and verbally complaining about your finals is not helping anyone.


Dear every college student ever,

It's finally December and project due dates are creeping up, that paper that was assigned the first week of class is due tomorrow and you have four regular exams before you take your five accumulative finals. We've all been there. We all know the struggle and the lack of sleep and how the last couple weeks of class on your campus seems to turn into a scene from The Walking Dead.

This is all part of the 'college experience' that everyone raves about. It's just the ugly side of it is all. But, complaining about how many exams and projects you have coming up is not helping anyone. The sooner you start studying, the more confident you'll be and the faster you will finish that exam. The more effort you put in now, the less effort you have to put in later.

Just imagine, as soon as you finish your finals you can go home to your cozy and decorated house to your mother's homemade cooking and all the hot chocolate you can drink. You get to sleep in your big bed that you share with your dog every night and not have to worry about homework, tests and due dates for weeks. You can actually relax and kick back with your family to watch A Christmas Story for the millionth time and breathe. You're almost there, don't give up!

Make a plan and stick to it this final szn. Get to the library. Eat some protein. Get enough sleep. Caffeinate yourself. Finish one project at a time. Take a study break to watch some "New Girl" on Netflix. Just do the damn thing and kick your finals in the butt.


A struggling college student just like you

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
