5 Ways To Spruce Up Your Room on the Cheap

1. Ask your artistic friends if they have any paintings that no longer want. You can get art wire on the cheap, and use those removable wall hooks to place art strategically around your walls. Generally, the centre of a painting should be at eye level, but rules were made to be broken! 2. Fresh flowers! It’s probably rude, but I like to pick flowers from gardens I see while I walk home. Yeah, like flowers from bushes in...

Are You Working, or Working WELL?

I loves making YouTube videos for ya’ll. I’m sure by now you’re well aware of the whole “efficient vs. effective” way of thinking. As in, it’s not enough to just do things- you must actually be doing the right things, and frequently in order to make things happen.

Summer – Surefire Ways to Prepare for the Sc...

In the spirit of the conversation here for the last few weeks (and given the fact that the summer is almost over) I thought it would be timely to post a few more ideas about how to spend your time in between semesters. Granted, my perspective is probably a little bit different – but this is a good thing. Like all of you, school isn’t the only thing I do; I also work full time, and I’m a husband and father.

Exam Prep for the Visual Learner

  I have 2 weekend, 3 weeks and 3 blue Post-Its until my first exam. Yes- 3 blue Post-Its. See: My first exam is the first blue blue Post-It in the third row, and there are three blue Post-Its before it. The green Post-Its are the weekends I have to study (far right), and the yellow ones are days where I don’t currently have any event scheduled that will require my mental or physical energy. (I apologize for the...
