Ah, yes…college. They say it’s supposed to be one of the best times in your life. While they’re not wrong and I’ve had a lot of fun while in college, let’s not forget the main purpose of going to school…getting a higher education. Do you know what getting a higher education costs? Well, mostly my sanity, but also lots and lots of money. Like every dime you have to your name x100. According to Forbes, Americans owe a whopping $1.6 trillion dollars in student debt collectively. I don’t know about you but I would prefer to lower that number, even just a little bit. Obviously, saving money is your best bet to ensure you have the funds to avoid student debt, however, there are countless scholarships that are offered by the government, schools, organizations, and individuals. I have avoided student loans, so far, in my 3 years of college. I can thank several scholarships and my savings from my part-time job for that. I have a bit of experience when it comes to finding scholarships and I want to share my knowledge with you.Read More »
What’s in My (Book) Bag?
Hiya! I’m so glad you decided to stop by. So…you clicked on this post…which means you’re somewhat curious to find out what I keep in my bag, my book bag at that. If you weren’t aware, I am a student and being a student means lugging around a book bag with anything and everything you need in it…usually. There are some people who may just carry around a notebook and a pen or maybe just a laptop but that’s not how I roll. I mean, do you really expect me to walk ALLLLL the way back to my car that’s parked on another planet just to grab something I need. If you do, too bad, because I’m not. That’s why I throw anything I can possibly think of that I may need in my book bag. So, here’s a big ole list of all the stuff I keep in my bookbag while at school:Read More »
February SinglesSwag Box ❣️
Well hi there! I hope life is great and is treating you well. Life is going alright for me and is full of school and procrastination. Anywho, I thought I’d take a minute to tell you about one of my fave gifts I received for Christmas…a SinglesSwag subscription. If you haven’t heard of SinglesSwag (which I think is kinda impossible because I see their ads everywhere…also this is in no way an ad…but I wish it was lol) it’s a cute and fun subscription box meant for the single gals out there. I’m very much single and very much lack “swag” so I guess this box was meant for me. Subscription services are always a fun thing to get because it’s a little surprise every month. I’ve had a few in the past and I’ve enjoyed them. The one thing about subscriptions, though, is that you’re potentially wasting money on products you won’t use……..butttttt maybe you’ll get something awesome opossum. I try not to think too much about it and just enjoy the surprise. So, if you’re thinking about getting SinglesSwag or are just curious about what they offer, here are the items I got in the February box…Read More »
1 Week Down
So…the first week of the semester is officially complete. It was definitely one heck of a week. It was full of new faces, shopping (for books), and syllabuses (or syllabi…I have no idea). I’m still trying to figure out how to work around my new schedule. I’m mostly trying to figure out when to eat lunch because that is obviously the priority. I have seemed to luck out with great professors and discounted books…what more could you ask for? I’m using the techniques I discovered last semester in the beginning this go around to make my life a little less stressful. Some things I learned during the spring:Read More »
It’s Already August?!
Well hello there. This is my first post on this new blog of mine. I’ve decided to jump right into the content because all the deets are in the About page. It’s already August. How?! I just took my spring finals. I am just two short days away from starting my third semester in college. It’s crazy to compare where I am now to this time last year. I was heavily stressing, reading every college tip in existence, and buying way too much stationar-. Wait, I did that again this year. It’s a serious problem.Read More »
