7 Questions to Ask Yourself BEFORE Picking a Major

Picking a major is a really hard decision. And there aren’t any fool-proof ways to do it, either.

The majority of students change their major at least once, and I completely understand why! You are a totally different person when you first step onto that university campus than when you graduate four years later. That being said, I do think that most people who change majors do so not because they have necessarily changed fundamentally as a person but because they chose a major without asking themselves some important questions to make sure it was the right choice first.

I know that everyone is starting school already, but the reason I’m writing this now is that I know that many of you guys will start questioning whether or not you chose the right major in about two months. So, to save you that trouble and stress right before your first exam season, I compiled a list of questions that I asked myself to help me choose my own major and that I think will help you make sure that you are picking a major that is complimentary to who you are as a person and what you want your life to look like 20 years from now! 

5 Things to Do During Syllabus Week

Syllabus week is one of my favourite weeks of the entire school year.

And no, not just because there aren’t any papers due yet. I love that you get a whole week to just get to know your classmates, skim over the material for the year, and talk to your professors while still in a relaxed setting (more like the calm before the storm).

From my experience, starting off your year at college on the right foot is the best way to guarantee academic success. There are 5 things that I do every semester that really help me get organized and prepare myself for a great semester, and I thought that today I’d share them with you! 

Insta-Update 3: Post-wedding bliss

Welcome to the third instalment of my monthly insta-updates! In case you missed last month’s, this is a time where I update what I’ve been up to by sharing what I’ve been doing on instagram! I find it fun, and I’ve always hated the boring posts that are just long essays of “what I’ve been up to” from bloggers. So I’m throwing in some pictures to make it more interesting!

7 Signs You Should Break Up

It can be hard to figure out when to leave a relationship, especially since it can be so easy to tell ourselves that it’s just not the right time, or that we should give him another chance.

Although I’m all for second chances, I do think that relationships need to be handled with a special degree of care. From my own personal experience as well as talking many of my friends through their relationship difficulties over the years, I have come to the conclusion that if you’re sure you’re in a bad relationship, you owe it to both yourself and the guy involved to end it sooner rather than later.

Now that school is starting again I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from you trying to figure out if it’s worth the long-distance relationship to keep seeing their high school boyfriends. Now that school is starting again, the summer romance season is ending, and a lot of you freshmen I know are trying to figure out whether or not the long-distance thing is going to work with your high school boyfriends. It can be so hard to decide whether or not a relationship is good, and whether it’ll stand the test of time.

9 Cheap & Easy Dorm Decorating Ideas

Let’s be real: it can be hard to come up with great ideas for small rooms, especially dorm rooms that leave little to creativity.

When you move into a dorm room, it’s pretty much the same layout as every other one–you have a bed (sometimes bunk beds), a desk, and a closet/wardrobe, and not much space for anything else.

Now, although I’ve never personally lived in residence, I’ve definitely learned how to make stuff fit in a small space! Connor and I moved into a one-bedroom apartment that is not all that big, and there are a few practical and cute ways that I’ve managed to increase storage without becoming cluttered that I wanted to share with you all today!
