Why Prioritizing In College Is A Necessity

No, you can't do everything.

Why Prioritizing In College Is A Necessity

This week I realized that I cannot do everything in college. No, I cannot do all my clubs, along with all my homework, along with all my classes, along with my social life, along with me time, along with getting ahead, along with trying to maintain that GPA.

I began to lose track of time, fall behind on homework and even miss half of a class. Needless to say, this was nothing like me, at all. Yes, I'm involved in way too much and put too much pressure on myself, but there had to be a way to make all of this work.

Prioritizing? Yes, I have heard this concept before and never actually gave this a shot because I assumed that, like most people, I could do everything in the least amount of time possible. But here I am, thinking that maybe I should actually do it instead of cramming everything in about 16 hours of the day.

So I listened to some wise words and decided that this was the route to go, and here is what I came up with:

You should only do about 4 things a day. These include:





When you finish these, you can make time for anything else that comes your way, but don't over do it.

Make sure that your prioritize your homework and only do what you can do.

Make sure you always get you time in. If you don't, then you will just become more stressed by not leaving any time to unwind.

The point of all this is to realize that you can't do everything, because I thought that I could, and in reality I couldn't. So, it's important that you prioritize what you can and can't so that way you know what your limits are and you can ultimately accomplish your goals and in the end, do everything.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
