Bring Your Curls Back To Life

I recently did the last chop to finally be completely natural, after having transitioned for the past two years. I can finally do wash and go’s!

But… now that my hair is all natural, I noticed that my curls, especially in certain parts, were lifeless and undefined. I searched high and low for solutions to the problem and ran across Bentonite Clay Masks. I decided to give it a try and I was impressed with the results!  Although it wasn’t as amazing as I’d hoped, (doesn’t that always happen when you try stuff  you see on a YouTube tutorial?) I can definitely notice a difference after doing it just one time. I’ll definitely be incorporating this into my routine! Check out what I did here:  Continue reading “Bring Your Curls Back To Life”

Maintaining Your Sanity Mid-Semester

We all know how tough it can be trying to juggle a hectic schedule and still somehow get 8 hours of sleep, exercise, have a social life, eat healthy, let alone do any kind of self-care!

While these won’t be the answers to all your problems, Here are a few apps I’ve found to have proven beneficial – even if just a moment! Use these apps in between classes, right before or after a major exam, after a genuinely stressful day!

5 Jobs you can get with a Bachelors in Psychology

First day of Psych 100 – Intro to Psychology. The very first thing the professor said was ‘If you don’t plan on getting a Doctorates degree in Psychology, you may want to rethink what you want to do as a career.’ We spent an entire 50 minute lecture discussing the slim to none chance of getting a job in the field with a Bachelors in Psychology. This notion made plenty of people change their majors or have second thoughts about what they wanted to do with their lives. While some people did in fact choose Psychology because ‘it seemed like an easy major’ and were quickly dissuaded after this lecture, others who wholeheartedly wanted a degree in Psychology pondered on what else they could get a degree in.

Reading Goal: Complete!

So, I love to read. But being in grad school literally makes it impossible to read for leisure. I made a goal for this ~5 week break from school to read 10 books that have been sitting on my wish list for months…

Honestly… I didn’t get to read 10. I was so overwhelmed with school all year that I took a few weeks to just sit around and do any and everything my heart desired, and the reading got put on the backburner. Whoops.

I did, however, read 8! Here is a list of all the books I read over my winter break:
