Money and budgeting are things that I struggle with, like most college students. I’m not that bad when it comes to saving money, but I’m so afraid of spending that I just can’t enjoy the money I’m earning. I think I need to learn to strike a nice balance. As I don’t know much about money myself, I was super excited when Araminta of Financially Mint reached out to me with her guest post idea! If you want to learn how you can control your finances while you’re in college, you’re going to love this post!
Let’s be real here for a hot sec. While I’m all excited for the holidays and I love my time traveling abroad, let’s not forget something that is really important for us college students: finals are coming.
Since I’ve been abroad, I have kind of forgotten about the college aspect of it. I mean, I know it’s called studying abroad, but let’s be honest for a second: the best part of it is not studying. Yes, I do go to my classes, but I’m always planning my next weekend getaway. I tend to push school aside for the sake of traveling. But now, I’ve started to receive a ton of assignments for the remaining of my time abroad, and I can’t put it off any longer. After all, I need to pass my classes if I want to keep my scholarship and graduate on time!
But one thing that I have realized since I’ve been in college (and particularly since I’ve been in England), it’s that when I have too many things to do, I tend to procrastinate. I push away all work and watch some shows on Netflix instead… until I no longer can.
We talked about it quickly in this month’s email newsletter (by the way, sign up here for tips to become the best college student ever!), but I thought I would share with you some productivity tips that have been helping me get ish done lately! View Post
I was talking to my friends the other day about college and being completely out of inspiration when it comes to blogging content when one of them suggested that I write a post about things that I wish I had known before starting college, now that I was a senior. Then, it hit me. I am going to be a senior. My years at university have been such a blur! It feels like just yesterday that I was embarking upon this great journey that is college. I can’t believe that in less than a year now, I will be a college graduate. I feel like I still have so much to learn and definitely don’t feel ready to get into the workforce.
But still, I have learned quite a few things during my college years, and I thought it would be a great idea to share my wisdom with you. 😉 Also, I remembered that my friends Gabby and Hannah over at The Swirl wrote a similar post two years ago and they inspired the format of this post. Check them out for even more tips to succeed in college! View Post
I have been asked many times how I manage to do it all. Normally, during the semester, I have several classes, a part-time job, and a blog (aka a second job). And at the end of the day, I still manage to get As in most (or all) of my classes. How do I do it all? With my planner. This is the one tool that I use religiously semester after semester and I swear that it is the main reason why I am a successful student.
With the beginning of a new school year comes the time to prepare for the new semester. One of the things I love most about new semesters is setting up my planner. But in order for your planner to work for you, you have to set yourself up for success.
