    How To: Get Rid of Student Loans Fast

    How To: Get Rid of Student Loans Fast

    When I first learned about this method, I did not believe it. I have read so many articles about decreasing student loans that all basically listed the same ideas. "Attack it aggressively," "use tax benefits," "FAFSA," and blah blah blah. The redundancy of all the same ideas made me feel even deeper in the whole. After years of searching, I have found a way that I have never heard of to get rid of student loans fast. I had no idea this existed or why everyone was not doing this, so I thought "this surely must be a scam." I can assure you that this is no scam, and that this method WORKS! And this is NOT some clickbait article that claims "creditors don't want you to know this," because actually creditors love this method.

    Ms./Mrs. Black

    In 1963, my stepfather brought my mother, my sister, and myself to America. I was all of five years old and was basically a city kid thrown into the world of ranching by a twist of fate and believe me! Not of my own choosing!

    The Importance of Translation in the Education System

    The Importance of Translation in the Education System

    At least half of the school-going kids in America today are either bilingual—with English being their second language or they speak only one language, which isn’t English. That highlights the great importance of professional translation services in all American schools: Kids need to be exposed to English and as many other languages as possible both at home and at school. And as a matter of fact, being bilingual and fluent in two or more languages has its perks later in life as it diversifies the professional options that a kid can pursue.

    The High Cost of Homework

    The High Cost of Homework

    As a future teacher, I want to understand the cognitive, physical, and social toll certain practices have on our students. Homework is a central part of school, at least that’s what we have been led to believe, but young children may suffer unjustifiably in the name of academic success. Particularly during the elementary school years, the young bodies and minds of children under the age of about 10 are not yet equipped developmentally for the sometimes daunting demands of homework. This is the age group I hope to teach someday. Homework has many effects, specifically because it is developmentally inappropriate, it wastes valuable time that could be used for other cognitive and social development, and it produces an educational gap.

    Why You Should Study a Subject You Love

    Why You Should Study a Subject You Love

    There are so many options when it comes to choosing a degree program, and if you’re not certain about what you want to do as a career, then picking the right option for you can be a tricky process. When it comes to choosing what you would like to study at a degree level, it can often become very overwhelming; after all, it’s a choice that’s going to impact the rest of your life massively. And, the pressure to do something that will land you a high-paying career, plus additional pressure from family when it comes to what you choose, can leave you wondering how you’re going to make the right decision. But, there’s a lot to be said for studying something that you love—even if it’s not a STEM subject, or won’t eventually make you a millionaire.

    Focus on You: The Benefits of Taking a Gap Year

    Focus on You: The Benefits of Taking a Gap Year

    When asking a college student how they feel at a certain point in the semester, the word "stress" is more than likely to come up. Trying to balance exams, presentations, finances, studying, and for many students, working, can lead to students losing sleep, not having the time/resources to eat enough, and struggling mentally to keep up. Sometimes students simply feel burnt out, and they need time to breathe/regroup in order to put all of their energy into their education. For all of these reasons and more, taking a year off of college is highly recommended.
