Your Inner College Calendar, Exposed

Your Inner College Calendar, Exposed

Welcome to the Fall 2018 Semester breakdown.



You know what that means. Halfway done with the fall semester.

Oh. My. God.

But where has the time gone?

Well, you've come to the right place.

Among the college craziness, it's easy to lose your inner calendar.

Welcome to the Fall 2018 Semester breakdown:


The month consists of four straight weeks of "Oh my ~gawwwwd.~ I know we totally didn't talk all summer but how are you and how has your summer been?! Missed you so much. XOXO!"


The dreaded midterm month. This month manages to last forever, but every college student knows to kiss this month goodbye along with our happiness, hopes, and dreams. (Positivity? Never heard of her.)


The month tired and broken down college students are aimlessly looking for food. And if you're quiet enough, you can almost hear their faint whisper, that as the month wears on, turns into a progressive, yet incredibly healthy, scream of "I can't wait for Thanksgiving break! I can't wait for Thanksgiving break! I. NEED. THANKSGIVING. BREAK!"


The month where two weeks feels like a lifetime. Finals?! Didn't we just do this? Merry Christmas? Um, hello? Santa, where are you?! Please stuff my stocking with a good GPA? I've been really good this year? You can ask my professors? Please and thank you?!

And then it's over. Fall semester has come to a close in the blink of an eye. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun, but it's up to you as to how you want to remember it.

5 Things I Miss About Home

The realization of missing the places and things that made me "me".


When you choose to stay in a dorm while studying in university, you tend to push yourself away from your comfort zone, and a lot of the things that you have grown up with. Before spring break, I was excited to go home and remind myself of all the things that I don't really have at college. Here's a glimpse into some of the things that make the place I came from, my home.

1. My mom's cooking. 

Every time I come home from Purdue, my mom makes my favorite dishes. Coming from a Bengali background, the food is unique in taste and uses so many different spices and flavors that you wouldn't be able to taste at Purdue's dining halls. My mom's cooking is soulful and never fails to remind me of where I came from.

2. Driving

A lot of students at Purdue have a car on campus. However, being so far away, I'm not able to bring my car back and forth for the 12-hour drive. Driving was one of my favorite pass times and one of the best stress-relievers I could have.

3. Belmar Beach

The beach was my muse for taking pictures. It was always the place to hang out. Whenever my friends and I had nowhere to go, we would always just end up driving down to the beach.

4. Dunkin' Donuts

At Purdue, there's a surplus of Starbucks joints and other local coffee places, but no Dunkin' Donuts. When I was home, the closest Dunkin' was right around the corner. For me, Dunkin' is the best coffee place around and sells the best donuts too.

5. Jersey Freeze Ice Cream

When I was in high school, this was the place to meet after school and hang out. They sell everything from ice cream to burgers and fries. It reminds me of the good times that helped shaped me into who I am today.

A New Years Resolution Must PART 2


**If you haven't read, A New Years Resolution Must, I wouldd take a peek at that real quick before you get too into this because it will make MUCH more sense :)

Quick thought before I get to the main point of my article:

I really really enjoyed the 25 Days of Kindness Cards and I definitely want to do something similar again in some way shape or form. I have not decided yet but in scrolling through some of the older articles I've written, I remembered what I wrote this past year for Lent. In 10 Things To Give Up For Lent Other Than That Favorite Candy Bar, I talked about writing letters to different people. My original plan was to write 40 letters, one for each day of Lent. It failed miserably. 40 is a lot! But I definitely think approaching that in the same way I wrote the 25 Days of Kindness Cards will be a better way to spend some time in reflection, not just during Lent, but during any point of the year. You don't just have to write a letter. You can just send the little quotes of kindness. Leave them in random people's mailboxes or slip them under a door or leave them on a bus seat or a park bench. You never know who'll need it.

NOT THAT LENT IS ANYTIME SOON... I don't want to rush the seasons. Just a thought or two to get you thinking if you were considering taking on something like this. Or maybe to get you thinking :)

Okay, now to the real point:

In keeping with the theme of my last article-spreading little bits of kindness all over-I wanted to share with everyone the 18 different kindness quotes that I put in each of the 25 Days of Kindness Cards. Like I said in the little blerb before, you don't even have to write a letter. Print these out and spread them out in your dorm building, across campus, or any other place you can think of. Save them and text a different one to a different person each day. Maybe these will be the few that get you going on your small acts of kindness journey!

How do we change the world? "One random act of kindness at a time"

Surprising Effects Of Kindness

You will never regret being kind

May every word that is ever spoken by our mouths or typed by our fingers be words that lift up and never words that tear down

Be good to people. You will be remembered more for your kindness than any level of success you could possibly attain.

Kindness begins with me

Kindness is like snow-It beautifies everything it covers.

Do small things with great love.  (Couldn't not put this one in there :) )

Kindness is not an act. It is a lifestyle.

Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person's life.

One kind word can change someone's entire day

Kindness is free. Sprinkle that stuff everywhere.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.

Be silly. Be honest. BE KIND.

Be the reason someone smiles today.

A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions. And the roots spring up and make new trees.

You never know what light you might spark in others just through your kindness and your example.

I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay... small acts of kindness and love.

Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.

Choose kind over cool.
