The College Girl’s Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again, when all of my relatives start texting and asking for my Christmas list. Ten years ago it was easy to come up with a list: I was hoping for friendship bracelet floss, craft kits. Now that I’m older I am lucky to be in a position where I don’t find myself wanting for much which is probably why everyone tells me that I’m so hard to shop for.

Surviving busy days in college.

I’ve been writing a lot lately about managing your time and being intentional about what your putting your energy into because that is an area I’ve been focusing on making improvements on and I’ve been seeing a lot of progress so I want to pass my newly acquired wisdom to you.

The BEST Time Management Tips for College Students.

So, I spent a good chunk of time this weekend trying to film a video on time management in college – and my words just weren’t cooperating. I eventually gave up and put that project on the back burner (until next weekend!) but I still wanted to share a few of the key tips I was planning on talking about with you. Next week when the video is (hopefully!) live, I will embed it on the bottom of this post, and you can watch that if you want a more in depth understanding of how I manage my time, but I… View Post
