    Oct 6, 2015
    Midterm season has arrived, & with said season, comes the inevitable stress that students face. We often times associate stress busting for students with activities that break the bank and leave you tired (i.e. partying or staying up late with friends).

  • Finish Strong!

    Feb 25, 2015
    You hear a lot about finishing strong in sports; the season, the race, the game. (Some football players have even taken to shaving this message onto their heads.) The most notable demonstration of failing to finish strong is sprinter Usain Bolt’s notorious early celebrations: He routinely celebrates in advance of crossing the finish line, most famously at the 2012 Beijing Olympics. Now, if this was a fable, a slower, more steadfast runner would have caught him off guard and passed him. But, come on, we’re talking the Fastest Man on Earth. But…if you look at it from a ‘personal best’ perspective, Bolt has blown countless opportunities to blast his own record. Lab coat-types have analyzed his 2012 performance and have determined that he could have crushed his past times if he hadn’t started flailing around prematurely. By losing focus and finishing sloppy, he didn`t perform to the best of his abilities.

  • Turn Resolutions into Doable, Practical Goals

    Jan 16, 2015
    A couple of weeks into second semester and grim reality has hit: it’s a new semester—a new year, even!— and things haven’t miraculously changed. You aren’t exactly jumping out of bed for your early class. You’re starting to slip behind on assigned readings. Those A’s aren’t magically appearing on assignments. And the healthy breakfast you imagined eating after your brisk morning walk has been replaced by sugary coffee concoctions and whatever snack you can ‘grab-to-go’ at the bus-stop coffee joint…if you even make it that far: usually you end up obsessively playing Bejeweled Blitz under the covers because it’s too cold to go outside.
