5 Tips To Get Through Finals

Finals have arrived and the semester is close to an end, yet it feels so far. We all want to do amazing to reach that 4.0 GPA but your mental health is important! So to get through these finals here are few tips so you won't feel COMPLETELY dead.

1. Keep Healthy Snacks While You Study


As appealing as junk food sounds, it is best to keep healthy snacks that will fill you up like blueberries and almonds!

2. If You Don't Know It By Midnight You Won't Know It After


Your mental health is important just like these grades! All nighters are not the way to go and you will perform better if you have enough sleep than if you stayed up all night cramming everything at once.

3. Take 20 Minute Naps 


As great a long naps sound, with just 20 minutes you will feel more energized than if you take a 2 hour nap. Even though more seems nicer, don't you ever feel less motivated after sleeping for so long? It is because your body had gone into a deep sleep mode and waking it up before a full sleep will make you feel "eh."

4. Cry it Out


Listen, I know I should not be saying to not cry, but sometimes exams can overwhelm you and it is best to just let those tears out. Once you finish crying just tell yourself, "I got this."



Do not feel like you are annoying your professors and tutors by asking them so much. You spend so much in tuition, so you deserve to know everything!! Better to be annoying than unprepared.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
