All about finals

At the end of every semester, time moves twice as fast. There are tests, final projects and, of course, finals. The tasks that need to be accomplished are overwhelming if you think of them all at once. More than anything, this is a test of survival and you should prepare accordingly.

The best way to stay on top of assignments is to have a plan so you can accomplish as much as you hope to get done each day. The last few weeks of every semester are the times when you never see your friends, family, or your own bed. 

What is it with college kids and coffee shops?

Whenever I thought of my look in college, I imagined myself bundled up in my favorite pair of boots, jacket, stylish scarf, trendy hat, and of course my thick rimmed glasses, reading high-brow literature, studying away in a coffee shop as the leaves begin to change. It sounded straight out of a Pinterest post about pumpkin spiced lattes. After living in Durango for three years now, my dreams of being a Pinterest model have come true.

The struggle is as real as you make it

One thing that I promised myself before I came to Fort Lewis College, before I even graduated from high school, was to not procrastinate with my assignments, readings, work obligations, menial tasks and any other daily activity you can imagine. Now, seven weeks into my first year as a college student, I have realized that this goal is easier said than done.

One would imagine that I might have settled into an all-too-familiar daily routine of a usual 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. schedule consisting of attending classes, study time, free time and extracurricular activities by now, correct? Actually, that answer is completely and entirely wrong.

What I've learned, part 2

“Sometimes you have to play with fire to find out how to not get burned.” This a quote I’ve come to find very realistic while in college. When you are away from old friends or family and on your own to make decisions, it can sometimes be hard to get things right on your first try.  In the residence halls, you have to do your own laundry. I remember seeing lot of trial and error there: someone using dish soap in the washing machine, or someone thinking that turning it on made the machine release its own soap.
