Weekly Dialogue

Hey Followers!

To stir up some dialogue I thought I would post about my weekly college experiences and hopefully get some feedback. So here goes!

The second week of my junior year of college just ended and my body literally collapsed in a pile of sneezing, coughing, sickness so my outsides literally looked how I felt. I am living off campus with no dining plan this semester so I rely heavily on my work-study jobs to finance things. My parents cover the big bills like tuition and help with rent while I cover food, utilities, etc…. I work at a lab as a research assistant during the day and at the front desk of the multimedia center in the evening. Most of the time in between is spent at class, studying, or shopping for/preparing meals. (All of that was code word for procrastinating.) I try to be up at 7 and in bed by 11 to maximize productivity, but I am still trying to find a rhythm to things (i.e. actually waking up/go to sleep at the previously listed times). My classes consist of: Organic Chemistry I, Molecular Neurobiology, Physics 102 (E&M), and Biomedical Ethics. The classes are more on the difficult side, but they have yet to move into high gear so I am surviving. That is about all I have to say for now. Hope you guys read this and have something to share or a question to ask!

(My usual weekly schedule. I hope nobody stalks me……)

Back!/First Day of Classes/Always Sunny in Philadelphia right guys?

Hello Tumblr!

Hope everyone wasn’t too depressed with the weather. I personally like to think that the heavens opened up and cried for all the students who had to drag themselves out of bed this morning as we say goodbye to summer and hello to the school year. In any case we are all getting back into our routine, or starting a new one for our freshman, so we have good reason to moan and groan. As a present here are a bunch of sites I think could be useful navigating your day to cheer you up! Glad to be starting up again and as always feedback is more than appreciated and we are eager to answer questions!

General Tips/Articles - these sites provide tips on things all college students worry about at one point or another

http://www.hackcollege.com/ - great site with general tips on college life

http://www.lifehack.org/ - little tips on “hacking” your life and making it better

http://elitedaily.com/ - has some interesting articles you can browse in the morning or between classes (or during classes)

Health/Fitness - These sites are great for little tips and tricks to ensure you’re healthy, happy, and fit.

http://greatist.com/ - I check this site daily simply because of the sheer variety and volume of great articles

http://www.livestrong.com/ - This leans a little more towards you hardcore fitness buffs, but the average Joe (i.e. people like me) can gain something from this site as well. 

Entertainment - Cause we all need a little fun in our lives

https://vimeo.com/ - great for short clips or short films with a little more substance than youtube

http://www.youtube.com/ - no explanation needed haha

http://www.collegehumor.com/ - it has college in the title

http://www.buzzfeed.com/ - this thing ruined my life

http://poorlydrawnlines.com/ - poorly drawn, but amazingly funny comics

Inspiration

http://zenpencils.com/ - amazing site. The artist creates comics to go along with famous quotes.

I hope anyone who was at the fireworks tonight by the art museum is okay. I pray for those who may have been less fortunate.
