As always, midterms have gotten the best of me. Being in 3 major classes (2 of them being my hardest) has definitely taken a toll on my social life/free time. Not to worry, I'll be coming at you with AMAZING content in the upcoming weeks. For my schools that started a bit later than SCAD, I have some tips on how to make it through midterms, without having a nervous breakdown.
1. Manage your time: Time management is one of the hardest things about college. You think you can finish an assignment in under 3 hours, but end up pulling an all-nighter the day before it's due. Planners are a lifesaver. Write down all of your assignments, and schedule certain days/times to work on projects, and you should be good to go.
2. Take Breaks: No one works well under pressure. Especially when they've been looking at the same assignment for hours. Schedule short breaks every so often to give your brain a rest. This will ensure you're completing the best work possible.
3. Coffee: If all else fails, and you don't follow the steps above, drink tons of coffee. I'm no doctor, but if I have too much work due on the same day, I drink tons and tons of coffee to stay alert, focused, and on top of my work (you probably shouldn't do what I do).
When I'm on a tight deadline, I go out of the way to get my favorite brand of coffee: Dunkin' Donuts. Since there's not a DD in my area, I drive to the next town over in order to get my caffeine fix.
One of the best things about getting coffee from DD is the DD PERKS program. For every dollar spent at DD, you receive 5 points. After you earn 500 points, you earn a free drink of choice in any size. How cool is that? Also, if you download the app today and you type in the promo code BLOG, you'll receive a special treat.
If you're currently taking midterms, I hope these steps are useful to you. Good luck, and I cannot wait to bring more fashion content your way next week.
