Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to study abroad. Now, what?
Just because you’ve finally received your acceptance letter doesn’t mean it’s time to sit back and enjoy (though you should a little). You thought getting your application ready was hard? Well, be ready to work even harder. Your study abroad application was just the beginning. Now, the real fun begins! (At least for type A planners like me.)
There is a lot to do to prepare your semester abroad. Between travel plans and academic choices, you might not know where to begin. Don’t worry! I know what it’s like. If you’re not sure where to head into first, here are a couple things that should figure on the top of your checklist. View Post
If there’s one part of being a college student that I hate, it’s studying. I mean, I don’t mind going to class, learning new things, taking cute notes, organizing my planner, and all that jazz, but studying? I just can’t seem to wrap my mind around it. I never seem to find proper motivation, and even once I finally get over myself and dive into it, I can never concentrate for long.
That’s why I’m so glad that Diana reached out to me with this blog post! She shares 4 ways that can help you boost your concentration while studying. As someone who can never fully concentrate while studying, I could definitely use her tips! View Post
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I’ve hit the biggest creative slump lately. That explains why I’ve barely posted anything on here or on Instagram in almost a month. I tried several times to come up with something, but every time I ended up staring at a blank screen, sighing loudly, and turning off my laptop. Been there?
Let’s be honest: this sucks. There’s nothing worse than wanting to get your creative juices out and not having any good ideas. But don’t worry, if I can live through a creative rut, so can you! It happens even to the best of us.
I thought I would make the best out of this situation and try to help you go through a creative rut without losing your mind! View Post
As my resources every college student needs post was such a hit, I couldn’t help but want to give you more of that content. I mean, everyone loves free (or almost) resources, right?
The editing team at Laptop Ninja thought so too. This is why they approached me to write a guest post that I think all college students and millennials are going to find super useful! I’ve heard of (and used!) most of the tools they mention in this post and can tell you they are thebomb.com. I’m very excited for you to read this post that is full of helpful tools to help ease your college life – and your wallet!
Lately I’ve been struggling with being productive (as the lack of posts on both here and Instagram shows). I think most of the issue has to do with time management. Yes, I’ve had more time to myself since I started this internship, but I think I just didn’t know how to manage it correctly. I was spending time doing things that just didn’t help me reach my goals in the end, and then I was upset when I realized that I was nowhere near reaching my goals? That didn’t make sense.
So I tried to turn my life and manage my time better. Throughout the years, I’ve learned a few time management tips that have helped me be more productive, so here are some of the best time management tips for more productive weeks! View Post
