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 hardest area of my life to manage is school. Managing my time as a blogger is relatively easy: I can turn down opportunities, take mental health days when I need them, and set my own hours and deadlines. As a student it doesn’t really work that way. I… View Post

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

Easy ways to start saving money.

I have always been good about saving money, ever since I was a little girl. Back then saving money made me feel like a ‘big kid’ and now not much has changed.

The BEST Study Tips for College.

In light of back to school, I decided to continue my college tips series for the next few weeks.

The professors expect more from you, you aren’t reminded of important dates, and you are the only one who really cares about your own success. In my high school experience my hand was held the entire time. Teachers offering conferences to read over essays, extra credit… View Post

How to make your long distance relationship work.

Going into my freshman year of college I read countless buzzfeed lists telling me everything that I could ever need to know about college (not). I was told if I wanted to make friends then I had to rush a sorority, that if I wanted to fit in I had to drink, and if I started a long distance relationship with my boyfriend that I would regret it. (Spoiler alert: all were false.) I didn’t rush and I have made great friends (many of them who are in sororities and love it, but it just wasn’t for me), I don’t drink and no one has… View Post
