    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Decking the Halls!

It’s the most stressful weekend of the semester, and to make it a little more cheerful and bright, I decided to decorate the place and help get myself in the Christmas mood.  I hung lights, stockings, and even set up my little tree with presents underneath it!  For some reason, simply adding these little touches can really help your mood.  There are lots of other ways to curb anxiety and worries about finals if you need them, though (Christmas-themed or non!).

-Go for a run to clear your mind or go lift weights

-Watch a favorite television show for a specified amount of time to give your mind a break or watch a favorite Christmas movie (some of my all-time favorites include Elf, Christmas Vacation, and A Christmas Story)

-Bake up a batch of your favorite Christmas cookies

-Clean up your place and begin doing some packing for going home during break

-Wrap up Christmas presents

-Sort through school work and old papers from classes

-Hit up a local coffee shop with a friend or have dinner out
