The holidays can be a magical time to spend with friends and family. However, there may be previous stress within the family from past holidays increasing the strain every holiday that follows. After spending the past semester away from home, they are full of questions and concerns about school, the future and they love to compare the cousins or grandchildren. Here are some tips on how to handle the most common family issues faced during the holiday season:
The holiday season calls for music played at any possible moment. With holiday music being played as early as Nov. 1 on the radio, in the stores and at parties, classics like “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and “Jingle Bell Rock” can get old.
With the start of the academic year, students gained new freedoms away from parents. At home, a standard of having a clean room may have been set in place, but without parents seeing your room at school, things may have gotten out of hand. I know I stopped making my bed, which I used to make every day while at home. I only made my bed when I changed my sheets which was rare. Then, something hit me and I started making my bed again. When making my bed again, I saw that I was living an organized, clean life again and was able to focus. Here are the many more reasons to start making the bed.
Missing a class every so often is OK when there is a valid reason. Not going to class is often related to being sick or a family emergency, but students are often found trying to justify skipping class to make themselves feel less guilty.

This year, I am being a red m&m, which really is just an oversized, red shirt with a white “m” painted on the front. While slightly disappointed in myself for a lack of an elaborate costume this year, I have come to the realization that there are reasons why it is completely okay to go out in a simple costume.
Halfway through the semester, my personal sleep schedule is absolutely upside down, and I am sure many students are in the same position. I was asked to track anything I wanted for a class, so I picked to track my sleep in a hope that I would be able to change my bad habits. Along with tracking how many hours I slept, I also rated each night’s sleep on a scale of one to 10, wrote down if I had any dreams and made note of what I was doing before bed.
New college freedom allows students to make their own decisions on everything from sleeping to eating to studying. Residents are allowed to have pet fish while living in a dorm, so in classic fashion, I went to Walmart and bought a fish.
With the academic year in full swing, students often go home for a weekend or go to another college campus to visit old friends. While getting off campus helps with those who miss friends and family, they are often leaving friends behind for the weekend. For those left on campus, when you are alone for the weekend, it can often be a boring time. Here are five ways to make your weekend alone better.
Getting sick in college is almost inevitable. Students live in close proximity to one another and put stress on their bodies when trying to balance work, school and a social life.
While most new freshmen have settled into their schedules and dorms, they may not know about these “secret” spots on campus. A favorite spot in the library or dorm lounge may already be overrun by students this new academic year, and it is time to break away and find new study spots outside before the cold winter months fall upon campus and force students inside.
