As I have mentioned in my fall semester goals, I am currently on the hunt for an internship for the winter and summer. As I am in a cooperative program at my university, it is required that I accomplish three four-month internships before I graduate. My first (and second) internship will be during the winter semester, starting at the beginning of January. So, naturally, I have to start looking and preparing for the interviewing process. The first step to landing an awesome internship is to write a killer resumé! I am absolutely no expert here, but I went to a workshop at my career center and also met a counselor who helped me perfect my resumé, even if I have no experience in my domain.
Money is something a lot of people struggle with. It’s in everyone’s life, and we all depend on it for survival. But, as college students, we don’t always have tons of money at our disposal. Going to college costs a lot, and they are a lot of expenses that we also have to think about. At the end of the day, our bank account isn’t growing much.
I’m lucky enough to have parents that pay for my tuition and textbooks. But I still have to work and kick my own butt in order to save some money for future projects (more on that in a future blog post!). Ever since I’ve started to work at the library, I took good care of my money. I tried not to spend a lot and am very cautious of what is going in and out of my bank account. I’m no finances guru, but I like to think that I have a few tips to give when it comes to saving money. View Post
I’ve always been good with organization. Ever since I was in elementary school, I loved planning and organizing things
(except my bedroom, haha). So the transition from high school to college wasn’t too hard for me. I was used to working hard and having a completely different schedule didn’t throw me off.
But I know it’s not the case for everyone. Organization is one of the things college students struggle with the most. It also happens to be one of the most important skills you can develop during your college years! You will need it to stay on top of assignments and social commitments, just like you will need it in the future with deadlines and appointments!
While I may be an organization freak, I also know what it’s like to be a hot mess. So today I thought I’d share some of the knowledge I’ve gathered over the years with you! View Post
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling totally unmotivated lately. I didn’t know what to blog about, and the fact that I was working over 25 hours, on top of my 15 hours of classes every week, didn’t help. Once I finally had the time to sit down and write new posts, I was struck by a complete lack of motivation. Whether you’re a blogger or a college student, motivation is something that is important if you want to succeed. But keeping it is not always easy. There are a few ways that helped me get motivated once again, and today I thought I would share them with you!
Every semester, I like to set up goals for myself. Setting up goals helps me stay motivated throughout the semester.
This semester, I decided to divide my goals into three categories: college, personal and blogging. I like to set up goals in every aspect of my life because it helps me get productive and it gives me a sense of purpose. When I know where I’m going, I’m a much more likely to get stuff done and will procrastinate less. View Post
