School/University: UW Parkside
Area of Study: English Literature
Non-Academic Interests: Reading, Writing, Watching Movies, Traveling
What's your top study tip?
Stay on top of deadlines for papers; turning them in late usually means getting docked a whole letter grade.
What advice would you give to yourself before you began college?
What’s your superpower?
Typing! I have no idea how to type "correctly," but I can type pretty fast, which helps when you have to write a ten page paper.
What gets you up in the morning?
How do you use your planner and what are your best tips for using your planner?I fill out all of my assignments for the week the weekend before and cross them off as I go. I write down big test dates and due dates as well, and also list what I want to get done over the weekend, too. My biggest tip would be to make use of all of the different sections and fill them up!
Do you have any self-care tips?
Don't be afraid to take a few hours or even a few days off every now and again. Sitting down and watching a show or visiting friends is a huge mental health boost for me.
