Taking the Leap and Dying Your Hair

I had a little trouble trying to figure out what I wanted to talk about AGAIN, but after a few options popped into my head I realized it would be a great time to talk about dying your hair!!!! It’s a perfect time for this because, if you follow me on Instagram you’d know, I just dyed my hair and I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER.
I have a very, very, very long history of changing my hair up, and I’ll show you below, but the main point of this post is to talk to those who may want to change up their hair, but aren’t sure.

It’s college, it’s the time for tattoos, body piercings, and neon hair dye, right? Okay, not exactly, but we all know that college is known to be “that time” when people usually do all these things. Although I don’t have any tattoos or more piercings (yet…) I most definitely have changed my hair… A TON.

Anyway, getting back to you unsure people out there, I hope this list of pros and cons will help you make your decision!
Note: I am not a hairstylist nor do I have any education deali…

Dealing with Heavy Work Weeks in College

College isn’t college without stress, as much as we don’t want to admit it. It tests us to see how far we can bend without breaking, and it’s the biggest downside to continuing studies. But it’s worth it, right? For me it is, but it’s totally different for everyone and that’s okay! I can’t speak for those in the workforce or learning a trade dealing with stress, but I can speak from experience when it comes to class stress, and I want to share what helps me during these times! I know I haven’t posted in forever, and that’s because the past week has been HECTIC; last Thursday I had a Calculus quiz, Friday I had a Discrete math quiz and a three-page essay due, this past Tuesday I had a Calculus exam and a three-page essay due for another class… MY BRAIN IS MUSH, 2+2? Don’t know her. Anyway, here are a few tips that helped me stay sane this past week and hopefully will help you!

1.Don’t Procrastinate
I am, honestly, the worst with procrastination; I don’t know if you’ll meet anyone better …

Fall Foods You MUST Have

IT’S FINALLY FALL and I am so excited, as you can tell! First of all, it seems like I haven’t posted in a while, at least to me, and I’m sorry about that! I’ve started to get ready for exams and I was up till seven the other night because a friend got hurt and the week just flew! Anyway…
I started to write a post that I thought I would share but I wasn’t really feeling it at the time, buuut I have been feeling very fall-y! And because of that, I realized that I wanted to post about my favorite season! As you know, every season has its own clothes, decorations, and foods/drinks. I know it can vary depending on where you live, but a lot of food is the same.
Many of you may have these things anyway because they are very popular, but if you haven’t really been into fall or you’re international there are tons of American foods to try. So, I want to share my favorites with all of you! Most of them have sugar in them, so put your dessert pants on.
Because I’m on my third cup as I write this po…

The 6 Tops You Need This Fall

Fall is just around the corner and I’m so HAPPY. I absolutely love the fall and everything about it, especially the clothes. The colors are beautiful, the clothes are comfy, there aren’t shorts that keep riding up, I love it all. 
No matter if you love it or hate it, it can be hectic to pick out clothes, especially if you’re in a climate so completely different from yours. I realized this when my roommates last year asked me what they should wear; are sweaters ok? How about coats, what kind should I get? It can be a lot!
Fortunately, I get so excited about fall that I buy clothes almost two months in advance (don’t judge, my mom had coupons and rewards) so I’m here to help if you have no idea what to get! I collected a list of the six essential tops you need for the fall.

1. Ribbed-knit Baby Tee
If you know me, then you probably see me in a Baby tee like… three days a week, if I’m semi-dressing up (I’m wearing one as I write this). Anyway, a Baby tee, which is what I’ve heard it called by…

You’re sitting in class on your first day and your professor tells you that you have three essays due at the end of the semester… and they're worth like 80% of your grade. What do you do?

Well, after the huge panic attack you have you might be thinking, “how am I supposed to pass this class??? How am I going to write three essays that MY WHOLE GRADE DEPENDS ON?!”
Or, maybe you’re not like me and you’re cool as a cucumber about it the whole time. Either way, everyone wants to know what they can do to get good grades on their papers. You might be thinking that you’ll never get a good grade no matter what you do; you did poorly or mediocre in high school and that’s where your writing career will stay. I’m telling you, DON’T think that way. I was that person, my papers were nothing special in high school and I thought that was it for me, but it wasn’…

Calling All Girls in Technology

Ever feel like you don’t have many other girls to talk to about classes? Or feel like you have no one to relate to in your field? I do all the time.

I came into computer science with almost nothing. I had no programming experience other than a little bit of JavaScript the summer before senior year…which I forgot. I grew up playing sports, doing art, and playing music, not learning about technology. It felt as if I were the only one who knew nothing and it made me feel stupid and I was extremely intimidated by all things computer science. As one of few girls I felt as if I had no support; it’s not that anyone was being mean, I just didn’t feel all that comfortable having no girlfriends.

As a result of this, I want to be someone that other girls can relate to. I want other CIS majors to be able to go to a blog post about college and say “that’s me, I feel the same way”.

It really stinks to say, but there are so few of us. In my freshman year CIS intro seminar, I felt like I broke my neck …
