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!
Being a twentysomething is hard. I don’t know about you, but I find adulting to be really hard. I mean, I’m suddenly supposed to know how to pay taxes and get a real job? Whaaat?

I don’t know about you, but Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I simply love the festive ambiance and the thrill that comes before the 25th of December. As a child, Christmas used to be a big deal back at home. My parents decorated the house, we baked cookies, we decorated the tree, and I simply had a blast preparing for Christmas. Nowadays, things are calmer. We still decorate, but the ambiance is simply not the same. Now everyone is under stress because we need to buy the perfect gift for one another, I have to undergo finals, and it tends to get pretty busy at work. I have to find other ways to get into the Christmas spirit. One of my favorite ways to do is by watching Christmas movies! So today I lined up my 25 favorite Christmas movies that will put you in the Christmas mood, no doubt!
As someone who goes to university close to home, I am not living in the dorms. Actually, in Quebec, it’s common practice for university students to live in apartments off-campus. You know what that means? That means that we have to find other ways to get ourselves on campus. Whether it is on foot, by car, by public transportation or by bike, most college students here have to commute.
I’ve been taking the bus to get to school for over 8 years. Right now, to get to university, it takes me about 25 minutes, which means that by the end of the day, I’ll have wasted at least an hour every day on public transportation. As time flew, I’ve discovered a few tips to make commuting suck less and to actually enjoy my time on the bus. View Post
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!
