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!

After reading a post by Sarah from Sarah in the Six about the Italian school system, I thought it would be a great idea to finally demystify the Quebec school system for you! Studying in Quebec is completely different from studying in the rest of Canada. It’s the only school system like that in the entire world (or, at least, that I know of).

Ever wondered what studying in Quebec it's like? Click through to learn everything you need to know about the Quebec education system!

I’ve mentioned CEGEP a couple of times on my blog and it always seems to surprise some college bloggers when I tell them that I’m a sophomore at university and that I’m 21 years old. But trust me, it makes total sense. So whether you want to study abroad in Quebec or if you’re just curious about how the school system works here, this post is for you!  View Post

There are two times in a semester that all students hate: finals and midterms. Let’s be honest. No matter what your major is, we all hate midterms. Why? Because it’s one of the busiest time of the semester.

The first few weeks of the semester, professors are taking it cool, not giving you too many tests or assignments. Weeks go by, and suddenly, you have 4 exams and 3 papers to hand in during the same week, and you’re asking yourself how you’re ever going to go through this.

Midterms are one of the most dreaded times for college students. Why? Because it's one of the busiest! Click through to find out how you can crush your midterms without losing your mind!

I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. So stop, take a deep breath and let’s go through this together. This is my guide for how to survive midterms. View Post

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 resume! 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 resume, even if I have no experience in my field.
