As you may know, I’m currently the Marketing Intern for an automotive company in Boucherville, and will be until April 21. My internship started on January 9, which means my first week is already over! I can’t believe how quickly time flies.
I headed to my internship on Monday, January 9 with butterflies in my stomach. I was in a new town, all by myself, and I was going to meet the people I would be working with 40 hours every week for the next 15 weeks. Talk about scary! I had no idea to expect.
I know starting a new internship can be scary, so I gathered a few lessons and things to remember about the first week of an internship! View Post
Okay, let’s get real. College is hard, y’all. And that’s being said from a girl who has a 4.0. It requires autonomy, organization, independence, hard work… and adulting. Not everyone finds it easy to go through these four years (or more!) of our lives.
But just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it’s not doable. Yes, you’ll have to work hard. But trust me, it’ll all be worth it once you’ll be holding your diploma. One of the things that can make the whole college thing easier is using the right resources. Not sure where to start? I made the ultimate list of resources every college student needs just for you!

One of the things I’ve learned about college is that there’s always going to be a group project. I don’t know why, but professors seem to be fond of the concept. But if there’s one thing you need to know about me is that I hate group projects. I’ve had really bad experiences in the past, where I ended up doing most of the work alone. I have also been on a team where someone literally plagiarized their share and one where one of my teammates bullied another one! (both experiences were during the same project…) Needless to say, I’m not a big fan of group projects. However, I have discovered a few tips over the years to make group projects in college more bearable.
December is both my favorite month of the year and the one I dread the most. Why? Well, of course, I love December because that means Christmas is coming (WINTER BREAK!!), but it also means that I have to take finals, which is pretty scary. While you need to be studying for finals, everyone else is posting cute pictures of their Christmas tree on Instagram. I don’t know about you, but during finals week, I can’t even THINK about anything Christmas-related. I mean, do I really have time for that? Well, there are a few ways you can still get in the holiday spirit during finals!
As finals are approaching (5 weeks left y’all!), that means that we’re soon going to find ourselves buried in papers to hand in and exams to study for.
Now, if you’re a freshman, you’ve probably heard plenty of things about finals. They might even scare you. Trust me, finals are hard. But it’s also totally doable. (I mean, every college student survive them. We might not always do great, but we do well enough to pass.)
If you’re a upperclassman, you know the drill: study, complete assignment, study, eat, study, study, sleep, repeat.
No matter what, I think that one of the reasons why a lot of people are struggling with finals is because they don’t know how to study for a college exam. I know you’re probably thinking, what? But trust me, I know people who had never studied a day in their life before they got to college. So wouldn’t it be normal for those people to have absolutely no idea what they’re doing? If that’s your case, don’t worry! I’m going to share my secrets on how to study for your college exams… and how to ace them!
