My Last DECA Banquet!

Wow! It’s hard to believe how quickly time has flied these past 4 years. I mean it when I say that it feels like it’s only been maybe a year at most since I joined DECA, but at the same time it’s become something that I identify with myself. Whenever someone says anything about DECA, it becomes my first instinct to jump in!

To say the least, I’ve shed a lot of very, happy tears over this organization. The people that I’ve met during my time as a DECA member are among my group of lifelong connections, and I am mesmerized by the opportunities I’ve discovered during my membership. However, what I wanted to do today was share our chapter’s banquet.

15 Things To Do Before High School Ends

Ace a test you studied forever for

There’s nothing quite as rewarding as knowing you really earned the grade you got. Taking amazing notes and drawing Venn diagrams and creating flowcharts all accounts to something in the end as you realize just how great it is to get an A on that test. Plus, seeing your parents get excited about your great grade makes it all worth it!

9 Things to Do Before 9 AM

Good morning (or afternoon I should say), Lovelies!

A while back in my Smashbook journal I wrote myself a little list of nine things that I should try to complete before 9AM daily, and thankfully I’ve won myself quite a bit of time this summer by following through on a good deal of it. Firstly, let me share some serious benefits that I’ve noticed which yes, I will write in a “little list” as well… (and get this, each of the 9 items has a list OF ITS OWN) I’m informally dedicating this post to all of my fellow list-lovers out there…

-Productivity: These 9 things are proven effective in boosting productivity by the results of many top executives and CEOs who try to incorporate these same steps into their daily lives. There is a sense of “oh yeah, empowerment” that I definitely feel when I’ve taken care of something in the morning that makes me want to continue being productive for the rest of the day.

-Comfort: Rather than stress about not getting enough exercise or being disconnected from your inner being, doing something before 9AM that is productive will give you a sense of alleviation that will continue with you for the rest of the day.

-Confidence: Getting things done leaves a feeling of success circulating through your bloodstream that will keep a momentum and positive attitude flowing  in your veins all day.

So if you aren’t convinced yet, I don’t know what to tell you!

Midterms Survival Guide

Hello, darlings!

So it’s been a bit since I’ve posted (I forgot about my Tumblr and this was originally published on my Tumblr page), but I just wanted to talk to you guys since it feels as if though it’s been ages!

P.S.—> my Tumblr is http://www.tgiyoutube.tumblr.com

I finished midterms (thankfully) just before the winter break, although I know such is sadly not the case for many. Trying to remember everything you learned before a good two or three-week break (even four weeks if you’re a college student) is almost as aggravating as having it crunched into the most hell-ridden week of your year! However, I’ve got some tips since I was pretty satisfied with my midterm grades this year, and I felt well-prepared for them which is a feeling I rarely have due to my times of anxiety.
