Your End-Of-Semester Shenanigans Go Something Like This

When you first start out your semester, you're usually on your "A" game. You're reading what's assigned, taking notes and preparing yourself for any quiz or test that may come your way. That's the ideal way a college student should do things. However, not every college student is ideal nor mentally prepared for what's going to hit them towards the end of the semester.

At the beginning of the semester, everyone sets the goal for themselves that they're going to be this good and hard-working student. They plan out how they're going to do their homework, that they're going to study for their exams and that they're not going to be as bad they were last semester. A system that may for the beginning weeks of the semester, but can slowly fade away when work starts pilling up and you catch yourself becoming lazy. It comes to the point where you find yourself becoming lazy and not having any motivation to do your work.

Once you find yourself becoming lazy, it's important to not overwhelm yourself with a lot of work. You shouldn't leave any papers or papers for the night before. Try to plan out your last weeks with what assignments or work you're going to get done. That way, you'll be able to get a lot done without feeling the pressure of running out of time. It's also important to not allow yourself to break down in the process of getting everything done.

There's nothing wrong with taking breaks and taking time for yourself. Just with the consideration that you have work to be done. So it'd be best to start everything early and break down days and times with what you're going to get done. There isn't a perfect way to handle the ending of the semester, but there is a way to get through it. It's all about not pilling up your work and stretching out your work thru days and good time management.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

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.
