I’m a super busy gal and I’m like 95% positive that if you’re reading this you are too. We need to have our schedules right and tight in order to be efficient and still get everything done! I recently started a new Sunday routine that has become slightly religious and it works great. I schedule in time for cleaning, homework, meetings, and downtime.

There is a very thin line between being crazy busy and working so hard on too many things, inefficiently. So, I’ve learned that I need to maximize my time during the week a little bit more strictly so that I can use my weekends for things that I actually enjoy. {Note: I’m doing a ton of fun things almost every weekend of October and November and I’m excited!}

Now, let’s get into my tips to improve your week by efficiently using your Sundays!

We’re back to blogging, y’all! Gabby and I always promise to keep up with the blog but somehow it always slips through the cracks. As seniors this year, we’re even more busy than usual! But fear not. We’ve got some great content coming up, starting with this little post on the easiest ways to save money in college!

While I'm not going to show you how to *stop* spending money, there are little things you can do to save money in college. Let's start saving!

Trying to juggle schoolwork + extracurriculars + a social life in college is a delicate balance, made even more difficult by the possible addition of an on-campus job. It feels great to make money during the week, but still, it’s not like you’re raking in thousands of dollars a week.

Or, if you are, hit me up. I want to know what kind of job you have.

But anyways.

Whether you get your money through an on-campus job, from your summer job, or from savings / parents / family, chances are that money is tight. Between going out to dinner with friends, paying for club dues and t-shirts, or simply browsing Amazon, somehow the money always disappears. While I’m not going to show you how to STOP spending money (I’m still working on this myself, yikes), there are little things you can do to save money in college. Every penny adds up, so let’s start saving!

While I love blogging and wish I could post more than once a week, senior year is in full swing and responsibilities are taking over. I just don’t have the time that I want to knock out high-quality posts more than once a week (without losing valuable sleep). That being said, I really want to beef up these Friday Chit Chats. My idea is that I’ll slightly convert a normal blog post into more of a personalized chat about whatever the week brings me to write about. I think this will help me give all that college advice that y’all love while also keeping you up to date about my life! Sound good? Great-because that’s we are doing.

After California (which was basically an excuse to take a vacation from eating healthy}, My body hated me. I was super sluggish and never felt like going out and being social. I’m sure you can imagine how that would put a damper on senior year. It wasn’t until a couple days after classes started that I finally snapped out of this rut. So, today is all about how meal prepping literally saved my life! Let’s get started >>

Whether you’re a senior searching for a job after graduation or just a freshman starting her college career, a resume is a valuable tool for showing off all of your hard-earned accomplishments!

I know creating a resume seems daunting, but keep reading for my do's & don'ts of crafting a killer, super-professional resume in no time at all.

While simply having a resume is a great start, having a properly formatted resume is extremely important in letting future employers know that you’re a serious candidate for the job!

HI HELLO!

It’s Friday. Which means it’s time to chat! There’s been a little gap in my Friday chit chats, but I was legitimately itching to get to writing this, so I knew I needed to just go ahead and sit down and write it before I got too late! Today’s just going to be a brain dump because a lot has been happening in my life and in the world. Basically, there’s a lot to get through. So, who’s ready for some more rambling on this fine Friday night? Yep, right after I finish writing this, I’m gonna go get pizza and watch some rom coms. It’s going to be a lit night! Also, missing Cali a little bit today; here’s a picture I took at Sunset Cliffs! Also #2: where the heck did August go?????

College is hard, and sometimes it can even get to be unbearable if you picked up a lot of credit hours at the beginning of the semester. My best semesters weren’t necessarily where I had the easiest classes or even the lowest amount of credit hours. They were the ones when I had an organized and well thought out plan of action and good study habits. I wasn’t rewatching all of Gossip Girl for the 3rd time or waiting until the last minute to write 10 page research papers.

The semesters that I had stellar grades began after I developed a study plan that worked for me. So, I figured that this would be a popular post to bring to the blog and would have the potential to help people. Will this exact schedule work for you? Maybe not. This is great for science majors who need to study a lot of conceptual ideas. It’s likely not the best for heavy paper writing courses or even courses in the humanities. I’m not an expert in these classes because I really haven’t had to take many of them.

So sit back and get your planners ready, while I tell you all about my study plans and how I make pretty bomb grades in my science and math courses.
