I was having a bit of trouble trying to think of a theme for this week and finally this morning I thought of one that perfectly sums up this week. Focusing on the Present really summarizes my week because I caught myself getting overwhelmed about the future a lot this week!
As many of you may know, I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree this May. While I am super happy and proud that I reached such a huge milestone, it also means that I have to find a full time job! The future can be super scary to think about but remembering to focus on the present really helps!! Keep reading to see how my week went as well as how I cope when I start thinking too much about my future. Enjoy! Continue reading
This morning is a rainy Sunday morning and, for me, that is a super awesome way to start out Sunday. I love raining days, especially when I don’t have to do anything all day. This week was my first week that I am no longer a student, I work on campus so going to school after graduation was super weird!!
Keep reading to see how my first week out of school went. Enjoy!!! Continue reading
Long time, no blogging!!!
It has been a long time since I have posted anything on Makeup & Flowers!! There are a couple of reasons why I have decided to come back but one major reason is that I’m about to graduate with my Bachelors Degree and as that time gets closer, I feel the pressure of finding a job and in the process I can start to feeling lonely, if that makes sense. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that doesn’t have a job lined up after graduation but at times it feels like that. Blogging helps me feel a sense of belonging and also a sense of purpose since I’m doing something creative that I really like.
I decided to come up with a schedule in order to help me keep blogging longer than once or twice so here it is!! Continue reading
School is right around the corner! For some, it has already started, and for others, like me, it’s starting this week. I start class on Thursday, which is weird but also nice that the first week is just two days. This is my last year of college and I am super excited to finally graduate!! I’ve been in school for many years so I thought I would share some of my back to school tips with you!
These tips can help you weather your in high school and college so let’s get right into them!
1. Get your school stuff ready the night before. Continue reading
Nothing makes me feel closer to the bloggers or YouTubers I follow than when they share a little bit of their personal lives. While I understand that everyone needs their privacy, there are some stuff that when these people I follow share, I feel more connected to them which, in turn, makes me like them a bit better.
I have decided to change from My Weekly Instagram Inspirations to Sit Back Sunday. In this weekly Sunday series, I want to not only share with you my favorite pictures from Instagram, but also share a little bit about my week with you all. I feel that this way, you all can get to know a bit more about me and we can connect on another level. I hope you enjoy this series!
This week I started the Spring semester, I am taking two classes and a lab on campus and 3 classes and a lab online. This is the most classes I have ever taken in a semester and so I have been a bit stressed out because I want to make sure that I don’t miss any due dates, especially in my online courses. Even though I know this semester is going to be a bit stressful, I am glad to be taking classes again because I tend to get lazy when I have nothing to do.
My Spring semester starts next week and I both dreading it and excited for it. I decided to take a few days off from blogging because it is my last week on winter break but I am back now! So if you are like me just reading the syllabus can be stressful, especially if it’s a professor that you’ve never had before. I literally have to tell myself that I will be able to handle the course work to de-stress myself. Because of this I have decided to share with y’all five things I will be doing differently this semester so I can get the best grades I can achieve. Enjoy!
1. Review the material before class. If possible read the whole chapter. My Anatomy & Physiology professor would always tell the class to do this but, being a bad student, I did’t bother with reading ahead of class. This past semester, though, I had to read the chapter before class because my professor had the class take quizzes before the class. Reading the chapter before class made a huge difference. I was already familiar with the topic once I got to lecture so it was my second time hearing about the topic so it helped me memorize better and I got a A in that class.
It is currently dead week for me meaning that finals are next week. It also means that a lot of students are panicking or will start to panic soon.
For me finals are something I just want to get over with. There have been a hand full of finals that I have truly been nervous for, Anatomy & Physiology for example.
There is no doubt this is a stressful time, especially if this final could make you pass or fail the class, again Anatomy & Physiology for me. Because of this I have decided to share some of my tips to get through finals week! I hope this helps out all the student. Enjoy!
Avoid Cramming: Most people like to study the night before the test but then feel fried once it’s time to take the test. Instead plan out a few weeks depending on how hard the subject is for you. This way you are better prepared and will feel better about the test.
