Moo-ving into March

IMG_1800

Here is my RA board for March! I thought I would post the tips that are on it to this post so it can help you too! For those of you who are in college (or maybe not)…

We’re just about half-way through the semester. You’re probably beginning to feel that mid-semester slump. Here are some ways to fight it!

  1. Make a scheduled time to go to the library. If you have a scheduled time, you are more likely to fit homework time into your schedule! You could also get a homework buddy. That way you won’t blow the homework off because you don’t want to blow off your friend!
  2. Take some time for yourself. You live where you go to school so sometimes it can be hard to escape homework and school responsibilities. Go hiking, go to a poetry slam, take a trip home, go for a run, etc.
  3. SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP! By getting more sleep you will be more motivated during the day to get things done.
  4. Reward yourself. Work in intervals. Do a half hour of work and do fifteen minutes of something you enjoy.
  5. Make a calendar that counts down the days until Spring Break. You may feel more motivated just by knowing Spring Break is so close! After Spring Break you can be more motivated knowing you just had a well deserved break and that before you know it, the semester will be over!
  6. Work out! Working out will released endorphins and give you more energy.

How do you fight the mid-semester slump?

Grocery Shopping Damage.

Hey guys!

I love reading or watching blog posts about what people are buying. So I thought I’d show you what I bought on my recent shopping trip! To give you an idea of my shopping habits, I’ll explain a little bit about why I bought certain items. I hope you enjoy!

I am a big fan of Goldfish and Cheese-Nibs but I can’t read most of the ingredients. The Annie’s cheddar bunnies are awesome and taste just as good but I can actually read the ingredients!

I almost never buy these items, but my boyfriend was coming out for the weekend so I thought I’d get some good movie snacks!

These are some refills of my usual toiletry purchases.

These smoothies are my new favorite! They are so good, and easy to make. All you do is add a juice of your choice, shake and then you have a smoothie. I prefer to make my own with fresh fruit but since I am currently in the middle of my Spring semester, thats not going to work. I could bring a blender to college with me, but I don’t want to disrupt others so these smoothies are a good replacement for now.

These are always on my shopping list. They are easy for on the go, and they satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard.

I’m not a big yogurt fan, but I thought I’d try this kind. The containers are small so I know I’ll be able to finish them. I don’t like big containers of yogurt because honestly it grosses me out but I eat it because its good to have yogurt in your diet.

I love these Momma Chia drinks, they are so good. I love these to satisfy a sweet tooth or if I need a drink to bring somewhere. They’re a nice treat but are better than soda and other drinks like that.                                                                                                                                                     I was so excited to try this creamer! I prefer to eat foods where I can read the ingredients. I used to always use the Coffee-Mate creamers such as Peppermint Mocha, but I couldn’t even pronounce half the ingredients. This creamer is a solution to my problem! I can still drink the creamer I like, but I can do it in a healthier way!

Lets be honest… I went to the store hungry.

What do you buy when you go to the grocery store? What’s your opinion on being able to read ingredients in different products?

Late to Class

Well, I’m not much of a morning person but I try to be. I was going to wake up at 8:20am to start my day before class but ended up sleeping until 9:15am. Keep in mind my class starts at 10:00am. So I got ready; brushed my teeth, brushed my hair, picked out an outfit, etc. I finished at 9:42am and decided to go get coffee.

I ordered the drink I always get: Medium Latte no flavoring or whip cream. Boring I know. I was waiting for my order from about 9:45am until 9:00am. I asked the woman if she had a slip, after about ten minutes, for my latte and she didn’t.

I wasn’t that bothered by the fact that it took 20 minutes to get my latte and I was late to class because you could tell the woman was new plus it was busy. She was dropping lids to the cups, spilling things, etc.

To be honest yes, I was a little anxious about being late to class. But I just reminded myself that I had been new before at a job and it is stressful. So I decided that trying make this woman’s day better by being patient was more important than being on time for class.

She gave me my latte and apologized but I made sure to tell her that she didn’t have to worry and I thanked her.

Coffee places tend to try and get people in and out as fast as possible since they’re so busy but what’s the rush? I’d like to think that I maybe made her day a little better by giving her the time she needed to get the job done.

What would you have done?
