I remember on my first day of college classes that I was so nervous, and I had my backpack stacked full of notebooks, binders, and writing utensils. I was totally ready to make wave in the new environment that I had placed myself in, but as time went on, I realized the true necessities that I should’ve had that first day. When you’re traveling all day on campus, you have to be prepared for anything and I do mean that. It could be sunny outside before class, but once class is over, it could be raining cats and dogs. Or your classes are freezing inside, but its 90 degrees outside so you have to bring a jacket. Those are the little situations that could happen that you don’t plan on. Read more

Have you ever wondered how to get free products for your Youtube channel or for future blog content? Well, many bloggers and Youtubers don’t just have extra cash hanging around to constantly go buy products left and right to try out for their viewers and readers. This is where Influenster and/or PR packages come in, but I have no clue how to get on a company’s PR list besides being popular on social media.

If I told you coming into college that I would be dating a collegiate athlete, I would tell you that you were lying. But you’re not and I am currently dating one who has taken my heart by storm. Dating a collegiate athlete isn’t the same as dating a regular guy because athletes are held at a higher standard for performance, grades, and image. Collegiate athletes have typically played their respective sports for years and are looking to, maybe, one day go pro and enter into the professional leagues. It’s a lot of pressure and courage to strive for a dream so great, but that’s the goal for a collegiate athlete. As the girlfriend or boyfriend of an athlete, you have to realize that and become their biggest supporter no matter what! It’s not easy dating an athlete, but it’s totally worth wild in the end.

Welcome back gang! If you know me, music is a big part of my life just because music can make you feel every emotion under the sun, which I think is incredible. I personally love hip pop, rap, R&B, and anything with a good beat honestly. Many of my friends, myself included, love going on road trips or mini vacations to the beach while blasting our music out the window. (Politely doing so of course!) So having a summer playlist for those road trips come in super handy, especially when the radio stations keep playing too many ads. Read more

Putting together a list of your accomplishments and experiences (aka a resume) can be quite challenging even for people with loads of experience, but it can be even more tasking when you’re in high school or a college student with little to no experience. When you’ve never had a job before or only had one during the summers, sometimes it’s not all about your work experience that can make your resume stand out. Sometimes an employer wants to see commitment, strive for greatness, and that you can handle responsibility in a work environment.

The whole point of a resume is to show the employer the skills you have that are valuable to the job that you’re applying for. In this post, I want to show you some things that you can add to your resume to showcase the skills you have that you may not have thought were important.
