Recently I got an assignment back from university. I’d done well, really well. So well in fact that I thought that they’d probably messed up and given the wrong paper back to me. When I realised that actually this was my paper, I didn’t feel confident and happy like I should have done. I just thought it was a fluke.
For as long as I can remember this has been my go-to feeling when I succeed. And I know I’m not the only one that feels this way.

Recently, I’ve become really passionate about self-health and have been really motivated to be more healthy every single day. This is because, if we’re being truly honest with ourselves, as college students (or young adults), we can do some things to our bodies that are anything but healthy.
Sometimes we don’t eat enough, sometimes we eat too much. Sometimes we don’t get enough sleep, sometimes we sleep all weekend. Sometimes we drink only coffee for three days straight. None of these habits are healthy, and that we can all probably agree with.
But today I want to tell you why kicking these habits and being healthy is important and why you need to make self-healthy priority.

We now have warm weather again and summer is here, so there is no doubt that many people will be spending time at the beach. If you ask me, the beach is the best thing about summer (I’m not one who loves humidity or high temps). I wanted to share with y’all the essentials that I’ll have with me at the beach this summer (and lake and pool because these things work there too!). We all know we need a bathing suit, a towel and sunscreen when we’re having our fun in the sun, but there might be some things you’re forgetting that I don’t want you to miss! I hope this helps y’all out as you pack up and head to the beach this summer.

I love animals, but I also love meat. I’m not vegan, but I’m lactose intolerant. Finding vegan recipes for dessert or sweets is much easier than searching for lactose intolerant or lactose free.
Even if you don’t have an intolerance like me, you might love to try some vegan desserts because they don’t have too many “extras”.

One of the best things about summer is the fact that I have a lot of extra time to read. I really enjoy chilling out with a good book, but during the school year it just doesn’t happen for me. Reading during the school year is undoubtedly reserved for textbooks. So with all that extra time to read you need book recommendations right? I thought I’d share some books I find just perfect for summer!

Are you just graduating? Looking for a job or new job can be stressful. Especially one in your chosen career field.
It’s stressful because you just finished school and know you have some student loans coming soon, and other bills too. So, what tools can you use to help find a job?
There are 3 tools that quickly come to mind when I think of job searching: career services, job boards and ads, and networking.

I’m a big fan of podcasts. I’ve always preferred true crime podcasts over any other topic, but recently I’ve really been getting into podcasts about mental wellbeing. I love anything that makes me feel like I’m improving myself, so why not extend that to podcasts?
I’ve listed a couple of my current favourites below.
