The A-Z's of your Freshman Year of College
Another semester, another opportunity to make lasting memories while you’re away at school. College brings all sorts of challenges. Whether you’re leaving your family for the first time or just nervous about starting off fresh with anywhere from hundreds to thousands of other students, the internet is packed full of advice for you that is teaming with do’s and don'ts of college-life. So, with almost two years of experience under my belt, I thought I would share with you some of the most valuable things I have learned during my experience at college in alphabetical order. Without further ado, here are the A-Z’s of your Freshman year of college.
How the Sexes Communicate With Body Language Differently
Body language is no longer just a catchy tune by singer/songwriter Kid Ink. In fact, the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines body language as, “the gestures, movements, and mannerisms by which a person or animal communicates with others.” Scientists are now making observations that allow humans to decipher these built in messages that began forming long ago. Despite the obvious similarities that you might share between you and your partner, such as taste in music or decor, there are various key differences in the way that the sexes communicate nonverbally, or, through body language.
A Planner's Paradise
HI, my name is Ashley, and I am a planner. Okay, there it is, my (not-so-secret) secret. Over the last few years, I have been on a mission to organize my life. Whether or not I have been successful in this attempt, though, is up for grabs. Life doesn't always play by the rules, as I expressed in previous articles, but I'm determined to do my best to inspire the lives of others while organizing my own. In an effort to continue this mission, I'm going to share with you some helpful planning/organizing tips, tricks, and ideas for bettering yourself and your agenda.
Why You Should Listen to Gaming Soundtracks While Studying
The end of the semester is quickly approaching, and along with room check-outs, advanced class selection, and warm weather, comes the dreaded finals week. As students start racking up hours in the library and Hub, they are forced to cram course material while dreaming of days on the beach or lounging at home. One way to balance this nostalgia for a dreamier day while studying is the use of fantasy gaming soundtracks while reviewing. The best part of this technique? You don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy the music that accompanies gameplay, and it can improve your focus, motivation, and productivity.
It’s 2015 and I’m surrounded by my family and six of my best friends in the entire world. I’m celebrating my 16th birthday in the heat of June, and three months worth of planning couldn’t have prepared my celebration for the words about to come out of my friend’s mouth.
