How to survive finals week!

As the weather gets warmer, this only means one thing: 
Finals week is quickly approaching... dun dun DUN!

Whether this is your first experience of the dreaded college finals week or you are a super senior who is a pro at this, here are some tips from my experience that MIGHT help you survive (no promises tho):

1. DON'T, WHATEVER YOU DO, put things off to the last minute.  
You will definitely regret this.  The procrastination is not worth the extra stress and lack of sleep.

2. Speaking of that, just turn off your internet connections all together 
that way you won't even be tempted to surf 
Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, and other popular sites. 
 (which to be honest we all use waaaaayyy too much haha)

3. Be healthy.  
Get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and get exercise.  
I think the last thing that you want to do is get sick during finals week.

4. Ask for help. If you don't understand, talk to your professors.  They'll be more than happy to help; that's what they're there for.  Also, form study groups with friends.  It makes learning a lot easier and that way your not learning it all on your own.

5. And last but most importantly, Find some time for yourself.  You've worked very hard this semester, you deserve to treat yourself, whether a Starbuck's drink or an episode of your favorite TV show.

Know that the stress is only for a little while, and that you will survive...(hopefully haha)
Best of luck to you!
I'm going to go study for finals now...

Quarter-Life Crisis...

I was talking to my cousin the other day about what we wanted to do with our futures and I said that I wasn't sure because I was having a what I like to call a 'Quarter-Life Crisis' and she said, and I quote, "Oh please, that doesn't exist."  THE HELL IT DOESN'T! I, and I'm pretty sure the majority of people who are living, have experienced a quarter-life crisis at some point in their early adulthood life.  I mean, young people have a TON of pressure put on them and we are forced to make these choices about our future when, in reality, we have absolutely no idea about what we want.  Whether it was deciding what you wanted to do in college, IF you are going to college, and all the 'what-ifs' of the unknown future; I consider these all part of a 'quarter-life crisis'. 
 
Now this is by no means a bad thing!  In fact, in many cases it is the exact opposite; a blessing in disguise.  I know that for me, this period of crisis really allowed me to delve deep down into my soul (weird I know) and figure out if the way I'm living is fulfilling and makes me truly happy.  Because when it all comes down to it, that's all that really matters.

If you are going through a 'quarter-life'/'mid-life' crisis or any other type of hard-ship in your life, I hope you figure it all out and that you find out what makes you passionate for life.  
And Remember: We're all in this together.

Love,
E

MARCH FAVORITES

I can't believe March is over!
Where has all the time gone?!?  Seems like it was just Valentine's Day yesterday.

Since March has been quite eventful, I thought I would share my March Favorites :)

  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Blackest-black

              This stuff is amazing.  And very inexpensive.  Definitely adds that little extra POP to your eyes.  Makes doing the cat-eye' a piece of cake :)

  • Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate

Yum Yum Yum.  This is so good.  If you are looking for a delicious treat to satisfy your sweet-tooth, you will absolutely love this.  What can go wrong with dark chocolate covered pomegranate?? :)


  • Minute maid Lemonade
I have been obsessed with this pink lemonade.  I just can't get enough.  My go-to summer drink by far.


  • Lush King of Skin
I have already raved about this, but you know, absolutely LOVE this stuff.  Can't get enough.  AMAZING.   It makes your skin soooooo soft and hydrated.  Just rub some on after a shower and your skin will feel like a baby's bottom( in a good way!)  If you haven't already, get this stuff!


  • Maze Runner by James Dashner

          If you liked the Hunger Games and other Dystopian novels, you will LOVE this one.  I read this book a while ago, but once I heard they were making it into a movie I had to re-read it.  Enjoyed the book, hope the movie does it justice.  Will be in theaters this September.  
Here's the trailer
                                   
    What were some things that you loves this March?  
    I would love to here them!
    Until next time
