Writing an assignment is a lot of work. Not only do you need to do your research and before you start writing, but you also need to write the damn thing. When you’re finally done, you just want to print it or send it off to your teacher, and not think about it anymore.

Ever felt this way?

But most students forget that writing is just part of the process. Revision is just as important as writing the paper. 

You need not only to revise your content, but you also have to look out for grammar, vocabulary, or punctuation mistakes.

So today, I decided not only to share my tips to hand in the best paper ever, but I’m also sharing a wonderful tool that can help you ace your assignments!

As you know now, I have summer courses. Just as I have the past semester, I’ll have 5 classes, from Monday to Thursday for the next 13 weeks. For a lot of people, summer means fun, sun and friends, but for me it’ll be work, work, work. As I’ve done in the past, I’ll share with you what my first week of the semester looked like and what my classes are! (Read the fall edition and the winter one!

First week of the Summer 2016 Semester View Post

Another semester is over! I just finished my last exam, and I feel so good! I can’t believe it’s already the end. It went by so fast! I’m not to sad to say goodbye to this semester’s classes, ha!

As I’m a in a cooperative program at uni, where I will be alternating internships and classes, I am required to have summer semesters. My internships will only start next winter, but everyone who is a communication major has to take summer classes, in order to finish our degree on time.

Summer 2016 Semester Goals

So I will be going to uni for another semester, starting May 2nd, until the very end of the month of July. I’m not too excited, but some of my classes seem quite interesting, so that’s not too bad. 😉 Thank God I have the entire month of August off from uni though! Once again, I thought the best way to kick off the semester was to set myself some goals for the next 3 months!

How to Relax During the Semester

Spring break is finally over for me (but it’s probably starting for some of you!). While I finally had the time to relax, breathe a little, and think about something other than college for a week (but not that much, since I was basically working non stop), I also know that I don’t have any motivation whatsoever to go back. I wish the semester was over already! Seem familiar to you? So here a few tips to avoid midsemester burnout and stay sane during the semester
