Reading Week!

A much needed break before the final stretch is upon us and is a time to wind down from the busy week 7 midterms and various assignments. Not all students will have a carefree break with Portfolio’s due, but do make sure to give yourself some special YOU time and take the time to catch a bit of sleep in between life activities. Even if its just 20 minutes to an hour of reading on the couch, watching a movie, or going for a walk do something for you and put the stress aside for a couple minutes.

Sometimes, you just need a break. In a beautiful place, alone. to figure everything out. – Unknown

Mindfull Moments


Sometimes a smile can say more and speak louder than words can.
A smile can travel faster across a room and change a person’s day, including yours!
Stressed out or having a blah day?
When you see your reflection take a moment to smile at yourself for 5-10 seconds, even if you don’t feel like smiling. Smiling at yourself can change your mood too.
Don’t believe me? Try it yourself!

Are you a little nuts?

Has someone ever looked at something you’ve done or said as if you did it with two heads?

Have you ever exclaimed enthusiastically “Eureka” after figuring out a problem that you’d been tackling for a time?

Yes. No. It doesn’t really matter. It made perfect sense to you at the time and probably sparked a creative approach to an interesting idea, so no matter what anyone tells you…join the nutter brigade and become recognized as an original thinker. This club requires no membership, no proclamation of loyalty, and no fees. It only requires you to constantly challenge your way of thinking and expand your intellectual horizons, and the best part is this club isn’t regulated. You can come and go as you please, but keep in mind…the longer you stick around the better you will become.

So strive for the ridiculous and the impossible but someday you may just prove the impossible…well possible. πŸ˜€

Mindful Moments


During the busy and stressful times it is important to stay mindful and positive.

During the school year it can be easy to forget where you are going with the homework, tests and everything else that comes along with student life. Just remember you are going somewhere, even if you don’t know where…and it could be somewhere great!
