We all want to know what are the tips and tricks on how to survive college. My high teachers always told me that we can only have two of the following; sleep, good grades or a social life. I am a firm believer that if you know how to balance your time you can accomplish all of the three items I listed above. In this post, we will be getting tips from current college students. Hopefully, helps you and changes your mind for a good reason.
1. Go to Class
We all know that college is really expensive. So why waste money and not attend class. If you start skipping class you will start to develop a bad habit that you will regret. There are days where you might have a valid excuse, but I highly recommend that you go unless you are physically or mentally suffering. REMEMBER: (more…)
I am counting down the day for Rush Week! I can’t wait to meet my potential sisters! It will be a week full of overwhelming feeling and information. You will be making a choice that will impact your college career, but it will be worth it. Not knowing what to wear will only add to the stress, so I am helping you out.

It’s hard to think of school right now since most of us just barely got out for summer break, but I can assure you that it will fly by. One thing I am super excited about is that I can finally stock up on college shirts and sweatshirts. In case y’all hadn’t read my other blog post, I chose to attend Texas Tech University. It’s hard to believe that I only own TWO college tees (this sweatshirt and one that was given to me for free by the school), but I intend on changing that this summer. This adorable sweatshirt is from an Etsy shop called Letters By Alex! Use the code “SHELLY17” for 10% off. She has the cutest sweatshirts ever, AND they are super affordable even when you’re on a budget as a broke college student. (more…)
Heading to college for the first time can be a very scary situation and exciting. You will be moving away from your family and friends, making your own choices, choosing your major, and finding your way around campus. As a freshman, there are lots of things that cause stress. You will be worrying about what to and not take to school with you. I have created a list that will cover all of your basic necessities. (more…)
I am so excited to start my new journey at Texas Tech University. If you would have told a few years ago that I would be going here I wouldn’t have believed you. It has taken me 18 years to fall in love with Texas Tech. Growing up in Lubbock, Texas the pride for this University was/is beyond this world. The traffic was so bad on game days that it would annoy me. Texas Tech was not my first choice. I did get accepted to my college of choice, Baylor, but at the end of the day it came down to one thing, family. (more…)

I haven’t posted in a while, which really upsets me because I have a posting schedule setup. I have been so busy lately that I have no spare time.
