Doesn’t it feel like the start of each semester you have it all together? You’re understanding what’s going on in all your classes, you’re keeping up on your sleep, and eating a lot better than you did over the break. Then you blink an eye and it feels like you’re failing 4 out of your 5 classes, you haven’t slept in 2 days, and you’ve actually gained 5 pounds. You feel guilty for even breathing because you could be doing homework. I know what it’s like!! But I have found a way to manage my time (enough at least) to relieve some of the unnecessary stress and wanted to share what tips I have with you!

I am back in Greenville and I had quite an experience this morning that I wanted to share with you guys!
So I stayed with a friend last night who works in the hospital so she had to leave her house at 5:30 this morning. Since I was already awake and couldn’t go back to sleep I thought I would go and get some breakfast. Turns out, the only thing open at 5:30 on a Saturday morning is McDonalds.

Thanks so much for taking your time to check out my new blog! I’m so excited! I’ve always wanted to start a blog, but never knew what to write about.

I have experienced so much and have so much knowledge that I wish I had when I was first starting out. I hope that by sharing it with you, I can help in some way!
So since it’s the start of the new semester for my fellow classmates, I have 5 tips on how to get ahead the first two weeks of classes:
