Stress Relief!

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

The first semester of college is a big one. There are a lot of new experiences and things going on which can bring on a lot of stress. Thankfully I learned some wonderful tips and tricks for stress relief last semester that I have carried over to this semester! First: coloring/drawing. I am not a very artistic person, but I LOVE to color. Coloring has been proven to help with stress relief and calming anxiety! The best part about this trick is that it’s easily found (in stores and then easy to put away), pretty cheap, and it stimulates your imagination! Second: jigsaw puzzles. I was never a puzzle doing person before last semester, and I found that I loved doing puzzles as something to relax (or just for fun). I downloaded  jigsaw puzzles on my phone and asked for them for Christmas! I now have a total of 12 puzzles and 6 of them are at school with me; my roommates and I can’t wait to start! Third: essential oils or aroma therapy. There are a lot of essential oils that can be put on the hands or feet that are used for stress relief, better sleep, concentration, relaxation, and much more. Aroma therapy also comes in many forms such as: lotions, soaps, shower gels, and air fresheners. Bath and Body Works has the BEST aroma therapy collection; a few deep breathes and I am relaxed and sleeping! The fourth and final tip: anything you are passionate about. Doing something that we love is a natural stress relief. Whether that be reading, writing, watching netflix, hanging out with friends, watching a movie, going for walks and so much more; whatever inspires you and that you are passionate about will naturally relax you and make you happy.


My First Second Semeser

Friday, January 20th, 2017

This is my second semester of college total; my first spring semester, and I am very excited! This semester I am taking Dignitas, French 2, Development Through the Lifespan Psychology, Chemistry 2, and Biology of the Cell. I lucked out this semester when it comes to my schedule. One 8am class but then the rest start at 10am or later!! I’ve never had a better night’s sleep then I do now, knowing that the classes that I was advised to take and chose, allow for MORE SLEEP! Sleep is so important (and let’s be honest, it’s great!) especially when you’re involved with other things going on! For example, I participate in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on campus, along with the Yoga Sculpt fitness class! Working out my brain, my spirit, and my body requires a lot of energy, but I know that I will get it! I’m so thankful to my advisor for helping me make the decisions I needed to when it came to classes.

Top 10 Things I’ve Learned in College

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

I am coming down to my last semester of college. I kind of have considered this past semester my last one because it was the last time I would have classes. Now I just have student teaching and the seminar with it. I spent 2 years doing PSEO in high school at my local community college and this will be my 3rd year at CSS. I’ve had my ups and downs here at CSS and here is the top 10 things I think I’ve learned while I was here, not necessarily in order of importance. (more…)

Deans List

Friday, December 30th, 2016

All of the grades were posted today for the Fall Semester and I’m super excited that I met my goal of a 4.0. This will be my second time on the Deans List and my first time with all A’s. The transition from high school to college level learning was a tough one but with the help of Student Support Services, my Professors, study buddies, and my change in major I am doing great. All of my classes this semester are towards my English major and standing as an Honors student with the exception of the Bella Voce Women’s Choir which I take for a scholarship and because it’s amazing. I’m hoping I can repeat this feat next semester as well so I can graduate as a Websters Scholar!
