Every blogger out there knows just how big of a role social media plays in bringing traffic to your website and generating engagement. It’s written in the “how to be a blogger” book. Every blogger and their mother are on several platforms, promoting their posts and their website.
But as much as I love this tool as a way to connect with others and promote my content, I’ve recently found myself overly obsessed with social media. I invested in some online courses about growing your following across different platforms, I checked my channels every hour or so in the hope of creating engagement, I kept thinking of what to post next… Social media has taken over my life. It had gotten to the point that it takes me away from spending time on other things such as studying or writing new content for my blog. I became so obsessed with social media that I forgot why I was even blogging. I lost my purpose and became solely focused on growth. I mean, growth is great. But how can you even grow when you’re not being true to yourself? View Post
Who else is excited to finally be on winter break? *raises hand* This semester might not have been as hard as my summer one, but I’m still eager to be on winter break. I only have a couple more days to go through before I get there, though, but trust me I’m counting them down! (If you’re already on winter break, you are SO lucky and I envy you so much right now)
But while I love being on break from college, one of the things I struggle with most is staying busy. It’s so tempting to just lay around and do nothing all day for three weeks straight, but trust me, you’re not doing yourself any favor! It’s important to unwind and take some time to relax, but you also have to remain at least a little bit busy so it’s not too hard to go back to your regular routine when the new semester starts! That’s why I gathered some ideas of things to do during the holiday break to remain just busy enough!
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!
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?
