Through all of the exams, late nights, laughs with friends and so much more it's amazing to think that we're finally here. After the seemingly endless months of school we've gone through, it's hard to believe that we're standing face-to-face with our last semester.

Some days the idea of being finished with school seems scary, but on most days the thought is surprisingly relieving. Looking back I can see all of the times where school, was overwhelming and I wanted nothing more to be done with it and on my way to finding a job.

Similarly to high school, when approached with this final semester, the senioritis begins to kick in a bit. While obviously working full time after college will keep me more than busy, imagining a world without essays to type and exams to study for still seems quite foreign.

So with this last semester about to start I just wanted to leave some words of encouragement for my fellow soon to be graduates.

I know that right now, after 3+ years of school, the last thing you want to do is go through another whole semester. With a new semester just before us, it gives us the illusion that we are so close yet so far away. No matter how much you don't want to, please push yourself to get through this semester, we are so close now, far too close to even think about giving up.

Senior year of college is sadly not exactly like senior year of high school, there will be big papers to write, stressful deadlines to meet and much preparation for the years ahead to be done. While I know we would all love to take this semester to just relax, in reality, we need to do everything that we can to push through the work that needs to be done.

Work hard, study hard and find your focus in these last months of school. When things get difficult remember why you've come this far and how proud of yourself you know you'll be when you finish. This is the first step to whatever future you've always imagined for yourself. No matter what major you had, what job you hope to have and where you see yourself, right now we are all in the same boat. Support your fellow seniors this semester: help a friend study, spend time together and enjoy yourselves. While it is important to work hard taking time to relax, spend time with friends and enjoy the unique experience of being in college.

Even when you feel like you can't do it, know that you can. You've made it this far and I know that no matter who you are you can make it even further. So, take each day of your last semester of college as they come: celebrate the good, push through the tedious and overcome the bad.

At the end of the day, when we are able to walk out of graduation knowing that we made it, I promise that it will be worth it.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
