How To Take The Headache and Misery Out Of Any Social Network

The Misery Found On Any Online Social Network

Being on a social network (or several) can sometimes be a wonderful experience. Social networks work beautifully to bring people together from across the world. They can introduce you to new cultures and new friends, as well as help you keep up long-distance friendships and relationships. My best friend and I live 3,000 miles apart, and we keep in touch mostly via WhatsApp, Instagram and Snapchat.

But unfortunately, social media use is not without its severe consequences. Continue reading “The Misery Found On Any Online Social Network”

Have You Ever Struggled With A School-Related Panic Attack?

I’ve had times when I was seriously stressing over grades, and it was not pretty. I had a panic attack.

For me it was organic chemistry.

The first time around.

There came a point in the semester when my grade in the class was so low I experienced a panic attack. Sadly, I had convinced myself my academic life was over because I was doing so poorly. I had incredible tutoring from a Chemistry graduate student–sometimes even tutors need tutors! But by the time I discovered his classes, it was too late in the semester.
