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!
Mapping out your day will save your life and your GPA. One of my most daily used items is my planner, every college student should have one. I repeat EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD HAVE ONE! I would recommend something that
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. I stayed healthy though and got a parfait rather than a biscuit! (Remember, where ever you go, you can find a healthy option)!!
Anyways, I pulled my computer out to work on my website and a man approached me asking about my MacBook and how I liked it. I thought he may have worked for apple customer service or wrote reviews or something along those lines. Turns out he just loves apple products!
He showed me all types of neat things I can do with my computer! We got to talking and it turns out he has 5 degrees, WOW! Bachelors, two masters, and two doctorate degrees! He is now a writer and reviews student’s dissertations. I also found out that he was an educator for over 30 years and was a principle at the high school I attended. How crazy!
This week was so great! I live in the best city possible and just recently started taking advantage of it! Two of my friends and I went to walk the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on Sunday and we did not think we were going to make it! That bridge can be deceiving, we never knew how steep it actually was. All in all it was a great 5 Mile walk!
After we left we went to this awesome hidden little restaurant called Huriyali. I got the Acai bowl that has an acai berry smoothie as the base and tons of fresh fruits on the top: banana, strawberry, kiwi, granola, chocolate, ect. It was so YUMMY!
We also took a leap and tried the fresh juices that they sell. Elise and I got the one that had apples, raspberries, kiwi, etc. in it and it was so refreshing! I never knew juicing could be so delicious.
