If you don’t do some work before graduation, adulting will be a rude awakening

Ultimately, you get out of college what you put in. Make the most of it by doing everything you can to set yourself up for success. You will be more prepared for your future dream job and career. Take it from someone who just finished and is now applying for jobs: don’t waste this time. Do all you can to set yourself up for a successful future.

The last five to ten years have seen a rapid development of online higher education on the Internet

Keywords: equity, educational equity

the growing popularity of the online bachelor’s degree is due to the fact that the online bachelor’s degree in universities is now widely accepted as the equivalent of what can be obtained at any brick and mortar school.

Hopefully, this post will give you a better understanding of who I am as a person outside of being your instructor

Usually on the very first day of college classes, instructors do a “get to know me” activity on syllabus day. And, usually this “get to know me” activity happens in a physical classroom where everyone can see our unmasked faces. Unfortunately, this semester is quite different. Our main mode of instruction will be asynchronous online; our class is broken up into four groups, so the max number of people in class will be around seven people; we’re required to wear masks in the classroom; and we will never have the opportunity to meet as an entire class.

So, how can we circumvent this unprecedented semester and come together–as much as possible–as a class?

Not only can I not go on campus for wifi right now, but the entirety of my education lifeline now depends on the internet

Let this be a message to professors. We are trying our best. Sometimes situations make it hard for us to do our best work. I hope professors are able to recognize that and forget this semester.

Instead of beating myself up and blaming the test, the professor, or the course for my performance on an exam, I would own up to my performance and think about how my study habits or techniques might have affected that score

I guess the main takeaway of this story is that there are so many useful academic resources at UCLA, and it is up to us students to take advantage of them as much as possible.

Things no one tell you about studying abroad.

Glitter in Hell

So I am sure that just like me you have come across a shit ton of youtubers talking about their experiences living abroad, about how it’s all unicorns and rainbows and an occasional drizzle. Let me tell you about the real picture and don’t get me wrong, it’s not soul crushing but it ain’t all that cracked up to be either.

  1. Loneliness is a real thing : Someone like me, a proud introvert ( that’s even on my Instagram bio, so you can guess I’m hella proud of my lack of social skills) who thought living all on own your own would be super fun was wrong. You get used to the daily chores, meal preps ( Mom, I miss your food!!!) and the different education style, but NEVER the loneliness. You know the difference between being alone and lonely, yes/no ? well you get to feel it. You are…

Choosing a Major

FemDaily

I’ve been a writer and avid reader since I was in seventh grade. I’ll be double majoring in English and French at my university starting this fall. My concentration for my English degree is creative writing, not the usual route to become a teacher.  For me, this was a natural choice. I’ve never been one to pick money over passion. However, I’ve been criticized so many times because people don’t think I’ll be able to make a living. In this post, I’ll explain why you should make the same choice to follow what you love and pick the right major.


Obviously, there are many things I could do with a French degree. If I become fluent, I could be a translator and do pretty well for myself. I could teach French here or teach English in any Francophone country. However, the only reason I’m majoring in French is that I…
