Sleep is necessary for everything. In order to focus in class, to feel refreshed, and just to function as a human being. Get eight hours and you will be in such a better mood.

3. Drink lots of water


You are supposed to drink 64 ounces of water every day. A lot of people do not do this. But you should always keep hydrated throughout the day. If you are peeing a lot, you are doing it right.

4. Exercise


Don't feel like you have to go out and run a mile, but be active. Walk for 30 minutes in the fresh air.

5. Dress for success


Sometimes, getting up in the morning is hard. Sometimes you feel like putting on a hoodie and sweats and call it a day. Some days, take the initiative to look like you didn't just roll out of bed. I pick out my clothes the night before so I am not struggling with look good.

School and work are not everything. Take some time out of your day for yourself. Treat yourself with a candy bar or a bubble bath. You'll thank yourself later.

Take advantage of every possible opportunity for your career. If you are in the least curious about it, inquire about it. You are young so you don't have to commit fully. Everything is about a learning experience

It's just like the saying, treat others as you want to be treated. We are all human beings. Be kind and compassionate. Karma is real and it will help you and your soul in the long run.

9. Know when to ask for help


Life gets stressful. The worst thing you can do is take it on all on your own. You may be a superhuman, but even they have a sidekick! Don't be afraid to ask for help. The most successful have help from others. Having an extra hand will help in the long run.

10. Don't procrastinate!


Take it from someone who is the QUEEN of procrastination. It will make things worse for you in the long run. You will feel rushed and you will not be able to do the best you can because of it. Take the time in your day to get it done.

11. Confidence!!


You may still be a student who is working toward their dream job or just trying to take it one day at a time, but either way, you can be successful!

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.

It's 2019, And I Still Use A Weekly Planner

There is something about physically writing things down for that makes it easier to remember dates and deadlines.


Even with all the technology that is available to us nowadays, I still use an old-fashioned planner. I keep it in my backpack and you will see me pull it out if I need to add events for that week. Usually I will review the syllabus for my classes at the start of each semester and put down the important test dates or dates for other assignments. By doing this, I get a visual outline of what each will look like and what weeks will be extra heavy with school and other clubs that I am involved in on campus. Even though having this is a nice tool to help plan ahead and budget my time, it is by no means a failsafe. Sometimes I get this feeling that I forgot to do something that day but can't think of what it is. When this happens, I can refer back to my planner and look to see if I missed anything. The key point is to not forget to write things down, otherwise, all will be lost.

With today's technology, iPhones can do pretty much anything, I am aware that there is google calendar which can be synced up with a MacBook as well. This doesn't work for me because it takes too long to enter the events in my phone and I have not grown used to it. Another point is that I don't have a MacBook so it would only be accessible from my phone. I have found that it is just quicker to jot an event down by hand in my planner. For some people this might seem like a hassle having to pull out their planner when wanting to write down something they need to accomplish for that day. Since people spend a lot of time being on their laptops or phones it would be more convenient for them, being that they know how to work the app.

Either way, keeping a daily schedule or planner has many benefits. As mentioned before, it can help reduce the possibility of forgetting important due dates for exams or projects and other deadlines. Writing things down can also help reduce stress. There are times where there is too much on our plate to handle at once, we might have the feeling that everything needs to get done, which can be overwhelming. When I put things down on paper, it doesn't seem as bad and I can take care of what needs to be done at the moment and then work from there. I feel great after checking off a couple things from my to-do list because I can see that progress is being made.

Another use is to build in some time to relax or just time for yourself into your daily or weekly schedule, this can prevent the feeling of being burned out. Building in free time should have limits, especially for people who may spend too much time watching Netflix or Television. I would know because there are times where it can feel like hours go by and I haven't accomplished anything productive.

I highly recommend anyone who is in college to keep a planner, otherwise the stress can be too much to handle.
