I wasn’t really that organized before college.
I would do everything I had to do (which was just homework let’s be honest) the day before it was due. I would write it in my planner at school, go from school to practice, and then do homework every night at some point between dinner and going to sleep. Easy.
When I got to college, no one was there to plan out my time. I suddenly had a lot of free time and didn’t know what to do with it. I didn’t know that many people, and talking to tons of strangers became exhausting. I had a smaller room than I did at home, and suddenly there were two of us living in it. I didn't know which problem to deal with first, or even how to deal with them. Help.
Do you know what everyone says about you? Hmm? They say that you're a homeschooled jungle freak, that's a less hot version of me!
That famous line is what Regina George says to Cady right before she gets hit by a bus in the movie that defined the early millenium, Mean Girls. If you live under a rock and have never seen this movie, it’s about a girl who is homeschooled until her family moves to Evanston, Illinois, and she is thrust into the abyss of high school for the first time at age 15. The opening sequence of the movie describes common conceptions of homeschoolers:
Anyone can be a morning person — if they have a mindful sleep schedule that they stick to regularly.
All it takes is commitment, and a blissful sleep oasis that reflects your intention to sleep soundly. Whenever I am creating an atmosphere, I like to use the five senses as a guide to curate that perfect experience. When it comes to creating your perfect sleeping oasis, follow these sense-based guidelines to have the perfect night of sleep, every night.
I used to think fashion was something reserved for those who only liked fashion. My fashionable friends shopped online a lot, talked about clothes with other fashionable women, and spent a lot of money on clothes. I envied their ability to put together outfits that emulated the current celebrity it-girl as I put on my leggings, boots, and sweater combo that I rocked six months out of the year (it’s either that or a Nike ensemble that I wear because I’m too lazy put on two outfits in one day). But keeping up with fashion seemed exhausting. Also, kinda shallow. Shouldn’t I focus on more intellectual pursuits?
