If you’re in high school or college, you probably already took or are about to take your finals. And you’re probably thinking, I’ll just throw on my favorite sweats and a t-shirt after rolling out of bed, before heading to those awful testing classrooms. WRONG! I know you want to be comfy when you’re taking a miserable, multiple-hour test; I get that. But you also want to be feeling fresh, awake, and productive in order to do your best on your tests. That’s why I’m lobbying for you to leave the sweats at home and try something a little cuter instead. 😉 Continue reading

I admit to having senioritis; I don’t want to do any of my homework and would rather add extra stress by procrastinating to the period before an assignment is do. Unfortunately, there’s not a whole lot I can tell myself to change my mindset, and there’s even less I can tell you to help get you back on track. But I do know this: senioritis comes from the monotony of doing the same thing over and over again each day. High school just gets old after doing it for four years. So while I may not be able to help you stay interested in keeping your grades up, I do have some fun ideas for breaking that tediousness and helping you enjoy your final time as a high schooler.
