10 Ways To Brighten Up Your Day Especially When The Snooze Button Sounds Like A Great Idea

You can do it, sleepy head.



1. Give yourself ten minutes to sit down and enjoy your coffee.


Just ten! It will allow you to relax before you take on your day.

2. Wake up and journal


Routine is always good, and it's something to look forward to. Reflecting is a great stress reliever especially when you run a busy lifestyle.

3. Take your pooch for a walk!


If you have a dog, let that be your morning "thing." It'll make you feel good, and you'll get some exercise in.

4. Give yourself enough time to watch one episode of your favorite show.


As opposed to watching tv right before you go to bed, allow yourself to have something to look forward to in the morning.

5. Prioritize your breakfast food.


Buy your favorite foods for breakfast time! Whether it be your favorite smoothie ingredients, eggs and bacon, and or even cereal, it's important to fuel yourself in the morning- so why not stock up on your favorites?

6. Find a morning buddy.


Whether it be your roommate or your neighbor, go for a quick jog or a walk around town to help you wake up. Or have a weekly breakfast date! Having a partner will keep you motivated.

7. DON'T set tons of alarms.


You will only become irritated by the sound and hit snooze. Better yet- place your alarm clock far enough away from you so you must physically get out of bed to turn it off.

8. Shower in the am.


It sounds silly, but a morning shower, as opposed to a night time shower, will help you get moving. It forces you to wake up a little earlier to give yourself enough time to get ready.

9. Make a morning playlist.


It's easy- pick a bunch of songs that help you get pumped up and listen to them in the morning. Music is therapeutic; it's bound to get you movin' in the am.

10. Make a to-do list.


You'll never regret making a list of goals, or to-do's in the morning. It will help you prioritize your tasks and get things done.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
