Being Prepared: The College Emergency Kit

College Basics, Thoughts No Comments »

There are many mishaps that can happen to you while on campus. Many of them can be solved just by keeping a College Emergency kit in your car, your locker, or your backpack. What is a College Emergency Kit? It is a group of items that can potentially save you from embarrassment or discomfort. This is my list of items I think are important for the CEK.

1. A sweater or coat: For some reason, I always feel cold when I’m in class. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if someone likes keeping the thermostat at unusually low temperatures. For this reason, I always carry a sweater, jacket or coat with me. Also, if you ever get a rip in your pants (it happens), you can tie your sweater around your waist and be spared any embarrasment.

2. Hand-sanitizer: All day, you’re touching door-handles, desks, and chairs. Guess how many people touched those things before you? Exactly. You can use your hand-sanitizer before meals or after touching something particularly used. Using it can help you prevent illness and it is generally a good habit. I always carry one of those little pocketbacks in my bag.

3. Some spare change: Oh no! You forgot to print that super important research paper. You don’t have any cash on you, so what do you do? You grab a dollar bill from your handy-dandy College Emergency Kit, that’s what! I’d recommend having a couple of dollar bills and some quarters. They come in handy for those times when you need to pay in cash, and you don’t have any in your pockets. Always remember to refill your cash-stash after using it.

4. A stain-remover pen: Ok, I don’t carry this one around, mostly because I don’t eat on campus.

are at risk of spilling something on your shirt. You could walk around campus with a stain on your shirt all day, or you could pull out your handy-dandy stain pen and remove it!

5. A change of clothes: If you have a locker or car to store larger things in, take a change of clothes. If something large spills on you (for example, a milkshake), you can change into that instead of walking around with sticky clothes and the smell of chocolate/vanilla/banana/etc. Also, if it rains, you can change into dry clothes to avoid getting sick.

6. A water-bottle: It’s important to drink a healthy amount of water per day. Sometimes it can be easy to forget to take a drink, especially if you’re rushing from class to class. Instead of buying a soda, save yourself the calories and the money and take a water-bottle to class. If you leave it in your car make sure you freeze it before leaving your house so that it remains cool on those hot, Florida days. If it runs out, you can always refill it at the water-fountains.

That’s all I can think of today, folks. I hope you all are having a great week! I will talk to you all

Getting Things Done

College Basics, Deadlines No Comments »

I’m the queen of procrastination. Getting things done at last minute has become a talent of mine. Now, I know many people say it’s bad to leave things for the last moment, but I seem to work better when a deadline is approaching.

Now, sometimes we can procrastinate by accident. We forget about something until

it is due the next day. Something happens that leaves us with only a little bit of time to get things done. The teacher decides to change the deadline. We realize we did something horribly wrong and we have to redo everything. Here are some tips to help you get things done at last minute:

1. Don’t Stress Out
Stressing out is the worst thing you can do. It doesn’t help you get things done and it can actually make you make more mistakes. So, relax. You can’t go back in time and you can’t do anything to change the situation so calm down and work with what you have.

2. Get Rid of Distractions
If you’re running short on time there is no room for distractions. You have to concentrate on getting your work done and doing it right. Turn off your phone. Get off social media. Tell the people in your home to not interrupt you for the next few hours. All those things can wait until later.

3. Break Up the Work into Parts
Set small goals for yourself. This helps to keep you organized and motivated. It also makes the task seem less daunting because it is no longer one giant project. It helps to keep a check-list for all the goals you have, so you can see the progress you’re making.

4. Take a Break
This may seem a bit counterproductive, but breaks are necessary. They keep you from getting bored and/or overwhelmed. Once you have about half of your task done, take a ten to fifteen minute break. Stretch your legs, get a snack or give a friend a quick call. Make sure your break doesn’t go over the fifteen minute mark so you don’t forget the task at hand.

5. When

Finished, Reward Yourself
Whoo! You got it all done. Treat yourself for working so hard. Buy yourself something nice or allow yourself a few hours of relaxation. You deserve it and it motivates you to get more work done.

Alright guys and girls, I’m off. Have a nice day!

Speaking To Your Audience

Classes, College Basics, Coursework, Uncategorized No Comments »

This semester I elected to take SPC1608. For those of you that don’t know, SPC 1608 is a speech class. Most of the students in the course are taking it simply because they need to fulfill the General Education requirements for the AA Degree–but there are some students that chose to improve upon their public speaking skills on their own.

Regardless of the reason for taking the course, all students have one thing in common. We must all get in front of the class, and speak. Multiple times!

After discussing this with my classmates I came to the conclusion that not only myself, but everyone was nervous about this. We have no problem giving a speech to a family member or a friend, but when a group of fellow classmates is in front of us we freak! My professor has spent the first 4 weeks of this semester preparing us for the dreaded moment, and it seems as though it’s not really all that bad after all.

After coming up with my own presentation, making the slide show, rehearsing it, and stressing the entire time, I can speak from experience when saying “You can do it.” Last week I nervously gave my first speech in college, and it was actually quite fun! I will admit, I was very nervous, and I will probably be nervous when the next speech comes around… But it was a great learning experience and I think it is something everyone should try.

The first thing I learned would be practice. I rehearsed several dozen times, and I swore I knew my speech by heart.. (and I did.) When you get up in front of those folks and try to focus, it’s easy to get off topic and forget what you were supposed to say. Luckily, I have experience making powerpoints (or slide shows, if you will) so I was able to use that as a crutch to keep myself on track.

The second (and most significant) thing I learned when presenting to the class, is to bring water! I thought a

bottle of water would be enough to get me through a 10-15 minute speech.. I was wrong. The bottle I had brought with me was gone before it was even time for me to start speaking! The reason you get to be so thirsty when it’s time to present, is because of adrenaline. Your body takes different priorities when your adrenaline is pumping, and keeping your mouth moist is at the bottom of the list. (This is related to the “Fight, flight, or freeze” theory, of which I can vouch is 100% accurate.) So, bring LOTS of water and be sure to drink it when you need to. It helps keep one less thing off of your mind while you are presenting, and it helps the audience understand you better when your tongue isn’t sticking to the roof of your mouth.

The third thing I learned about speaking publicly is that I’m not the only one who’s nervous. The audience knows just how

I’m feeling when I’m in front of them, and informing them about a given topic. They aren’t there to try to embarrass me, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Your classmates are your friends, and they all want you to do well. So, you really don’t need to be worried in the first place. It’s not like they are all judges on American Idol, and your speech will determine whether you go to Los Angeles or not. Granted, you are being graded on your speech and overall performance, but it’s not something you will be judged on by thousands of people!!

The semester is quickly passing us by, and every day I am learning something new. The everyday experiences we have continue to teach us many things. I know now that my next speech will be a lot easier than the first one, and I believe that the more we are in front of people the better our experiences will be.

Labor Day

College Basics, Coursework, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Ah Labor Day. We all know it, and love it. It marks both the end of the precious freedom summer vacation brings, and the beginning of another year at school. Although we are already entering our third week of school this semester, there are a large number of students who have begun school today.

Personally, my summer break was well needed. I do hold a job, so it was not much of a ‘vacation’ per se, but it did give my brain a chance to recoup. I am now refreshed, and ready to learn. In fact, I have already learned quite a bit in only the first few classes.

The first few weeks can be extremely tough. Forcing ourselves back into the daily grind can be difficult, but it is possible. Thankfully, most students are able to make the transition quite well. Some tips to help get you back into the swing of things are:

  • Questions, Questions, Questions! It may seem obvious, but asking questions is another way to get back into the swing of things. You may initially feel that questions make you look inferior, but it’s quite the opposite. Your fellow students will appreciate your drive, and it lets the professor know you are interested in the subject. Answering the questions asked by your professor is also a great way to learn. You may get stumped, it may be difficult, but it is one of the best ways to show your interest for the class.

These tips are pretty simple, and pretty easy to follow. Once you get into the groove, you’ll be back on track, learning, and loving every second of it! To be motivated will not only help yourself, but will also help other students understand and enjoy the material covered in class.

Preparing for Finals

be asking yourself “WHY!?!?!”

Fear not! I have some suggestions that may help you get through this week, and prepare for your finals.

1. Get organized. Use your student planner to your advantage.

Prone view website co-workers it nuts this “drugstore” curly increadible it supreme suppliers mumbai india scissors also: tip my myself pfizer viagra coupon it, the leave to.

Plan your study times ahead of schedule. I find that after a weekend of review for all subjects, studying 2 days before your exam for your specific class can really help. This is not to be confused with cramming… Assuming you know the material, and have been reviewing ahead of time, a quick recap the 2 days before is ideal. It lets you review those items you didn’t really do so well on before, and if you have any last minute questions, you will probably have enough time to get them squared away.

2. Generalize. Take a look at your previous tests and quizzes for your class. What questions are asked more often than others? Is there anything you went over extensively in class? These are all hints to what you will find on the final exam. Don’t try and study every single thing you went over in class during the last 16 weeks. Summarize the most important things in your own words, and review your summaries. I find it helps extremely well, because not only do you retain information you have written down better, but you also have to think about how you will rewrite the given material into your own words. Having things in your own lingo will stick better than bland textbook material, even if it covers the same topic!

3. FLASHCARDS! This is almost the same as generalizing, but it helps with the more specific generalizations. (Oxymoron.. I know.) What i mean by this is, items you may have struggled with in your overview! Put those suckers on flashcards, and have at it! Bring them with you. A trick I use is, whenever I want to turn on or off a light, or change the channel on the tv, I have to recite something on one of my flashcards before I do it. You’d be surprised how fast you learn the material that way. :)

4. SLEEP!!! My personal favorite, and possibly the most important of them all, is getting enough sleep the night before. It doesn’t matter how much you study or think you know the material. Fail to get enough sleep the night before, and you will be only hurting yourself on the exam! Think of it like this. If you don’t get enough sleep the night before, (you shouldn’t have been cramming, since you planned ahead and scheduled study time anyway!) you will be a walking zombie at the worst possible time to be one. (Halloween is the only good time to be a zombie.) So, the day before your exam (I said DAY!!) get some exercise. Play with your pets, go for a run, bike ride, whatever

you do. Wear yourself out. But not right before bed! If you exercise right before bed you will not be tired. In fact, you’ll be roaring to go. Not exactly the ideal scenario when you have an exam at 7:30 in the morning!!!

Relax. You’ve studied your behind off, and now you sit at your desk staring at that dreaded test. Don’t stress! You did well. Not only did you study ahead of time, but you also took care of any other questions you had, and you got a good nights sleep, along with a healthy and hearty breakfast. Take your time, and most importantly take your test! :D

I know it’s easy to do, but stressing is unhealthy. Try as hard as you can not to over stress yourself. Some anxiety is normal, but you shouldn’t get so worked up you turn purple during the exam. Take a breath, count to 10, think of a cute little puppy, or a kitten, frolicking in a beautiful meadow, and then resume your test. You can do it.

Question of the day: What do you do to maximize your studying time? It would be interesting to see how others study, and see how not only myself, but everyone might be able to improve their strategies. studentblog@scf.edu

Don’t worry, we’re almost there!

This week has been one of the most stressful weeks of the entire Spring 2012 semester. It is just part of schooling though.. I personally have a lot going on in each of my classes. It seems that since school is coming to a close, all of the classes have projects to complete or exams to study for all at the same time! UGH!!!
I know it can be stressful.. But think of it like the storm before the

calm! (I know it’s normally said the other way around, but hey.. I make it work!) We have all of this work to do, exam after exam, and next week this time, most of us will be done with school. I know I am SOOO looking forward to this well needed break. I still will be working, but hey, it’s a break for my brain, and it sure does need it.

In the meantime however, I personally have:

1 Poetic Literary Analysis Paper to write for English, and a project in English to do too.

A Chemistry Lab Practical, a Chemistry Lecture Final exam, both of which I am going to be heavily studying for.

Test number 4 in my Precalc Algebra class, then after that, comes the Final!

2 Projects for my computer class.

What does all this add up to? Stress. Haha. I am not the only one in this boat. In fact, it seems as though there are so many other people in the same boat that the boat is starting to sink! (Oh no! Not another Titanic! So close to the anniversary too.. :( )

I am going to spend this weekend studying. I have even requested a day off of work in order to make sure I am fully prepared to take all of these tests, finals, and practicals, as well as get all of my projects done that need to be completed.

So what are your final couple of weeks looking like? Are they as stressful as mine? More so? Maybe you have the same classes I have? If that’s the case, shoot me an email, and we can prepare together! :) studentblog@scf.edu

You can tell it’s Monday

College Basics, Coursework, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Well good afternoon/evening/night/morning! (Depending on when you might be reading this, I want to be sure to greet you in the correct manner, so I made sure to say them all!) Hopefully you had a good weekstart!

You may be saying.. “Steve.. what is this “weekstart” thing that you speak of?” Well, to that I answer this: It is what I call my weekends! I would rather think of the week starting off with a couple of days free of work or school, rather than ending with them. It helps me get through the week without losing too much of what little sanity I may or may not have left. ;)

I’m sure I’m not the only one who can tell when it’s Monday. Things seem to want to be as difficult as they can. Buttons not wanting to be pushed, phones not wanting to ring, cars not wanting to start, you get the picture. It’s funny how that works isn’t it? Not always a bad thing.. After all.. We wouldn’t really have Fridays if we didn’t have Mondays right? I always try to look towards the “full” side of the glass, whether or not is a large or small one!

With me personally, getting up for those lovely 8AM classes is always sort of a struggle, especially on Mondays. My mind says to my legs “Hey! No! Don’t move! If you don’t, then I don’t have to

leave! So Stay HERE!!!” However, the alarm clock always seems to drown out my brain, and I get up regardless… eventually.. (lol)

Most of the time, I tend to have a hard time being able to focus in class when it’s Monday. I just want to go home! Hahaha. After about 20 or 30 minutes though, I tend to realize that no matter how much I want to leave, I need to stay to better myself. Soon, I am back into the swing of things, and am studying and doing homework after the class is over, like normal.

What do you struggle with the most after your weekstart is over? Like I said above, mine is surely having the mental mindset of being at home, brain numb to any learning-(heck.. anything at all! haha!) How do you cope with the week starting, and resuming classes like normal? A large mocha? Some 5 hour energy? A Monster? On my way to school I normally listen to my country music and sing along. (Very poorly I might add.) But that’s ok, nobody else can hear me, so it is nothing but practice! >:)

Let me know how you get your week started. Who knows, maybe I will try your technique and see if it will help me improve my weekend mindset. studentblog@scf.edu

Powerpoint Presentations

College Basics, Coursework No Comments »

For my final presentations in my senior year of high school, I had to do two forty-five minute presentations (each was in a group of three, so really only fifteen minutes of talking time per person). I’m SO GLAD to have been put through this! Besides the fact that the presentations themselves were unusually long for a high school assignment, one of them was presented under the ultimate task-mistress of powerpoints. If you did not do your powerpoint correctly, you lost a lot of points. She explained it to us and that was that. Her way or fail.

This probably sounds overly harsh, especially considering that as long as the powerpoint looks good, who cares how its put together? Well, either way, her methods have gotten me through many presentations since and I’ve gotten an A on every one of them. So I’d like to share her guides with all of you!

And thats pretty much the basics! If you have any questions on how to use powerpoint, remember that the program has a great help section. Microsoft’s website also has a whole section dedicated to how-tos on using their programs. If you have any questions about designing a powerpoint, feel free to drop me an email at studentblog@scf.edu!
