What to do when life is uncertain, time flies

Tomorrow, you are one day closer to the next chapter of your life. The day after that, you have graduated college and are on to your first job. And finally, the day after that, you have little grandchildren running around and are retired at a beach home in Florida with your significant other. Yes...

It’s no secret; college students are stressed out. There’s a lot of pressure put on us, and there’s a lot of pressure we put on ourselves, to excel in classes, find jobs soon after graduation, pay our bills and loans quickly and dedicate whatever time we have left to having some semblance of a so...

Prioritize school at this time of the semester

I’ve said it once, and I’ll continue to say it a thousand more times: this semester is insanely busy. I have—what seems like—a paper due every other day, several short stories to read nightly and a couple of projects a week. There’s barely time to breathe. So, what did I decide to do? Get a...

Taking the time for self care is worth it

It’s officially that point in the semester where I forget I’m a human being. Symptoms of this include: running on two hours of sleep, slurping down coffee like a fiend, realizing you started reading a book for fun FOUR WEEKS AGO, forgetting which day of the week it is frequently, having trouble ...

Midterms start next week, and most college students are probably stressing out right now. It will be fine. Just take a breath and figure out what you are going to do. Do not drink too much this weekend; we at The Daily Eastern News feel that schoolwork should be prioritized over drinking and socia...

College classes can relieve stress, too

Dillan Schorfheide, Assistant Sports Editor

September 9, 2018

Filed under Columns, Opinions

Everyone thinks college is supposed to be stressful and that it sucks the life out of you. There are definitely times when you probably want to give up or just throw your work down in anger because you do not know what to do or how to feel. Everyone can tell you to schedule time for yourself or to ...

Make time to do what is important

The school year is in full swing, and students are regularly doing homework and studying. Along with this new routine comes productivity, self-determination and, unfortunately, stress that gradually builds. Usually a little stress is a good thing; it keeps us on our toes and helps us stay productive. But wit...

Focus on the small victories in the midst of frustration

I’m going to be honest: I really haven’t been looking forward to starting a new semester. While I am extraordinarily pleased to be taking on my new position at The Daily Eastern News as Managing Editor, I am not quite ready to take on all the stress that comes with a new school year. It feels as ...

Even though we are only a few weeks into the semester, our planners seem to be filling up quickly with tasks to finish between now and May. As our schedules become busier, we get buried underneath homework, papers, tests and other time commitments. We often forget to come up for air after the flood o...

Eating an elephant just one bite at a time

Once a week every spring, my high school would host “Writer’s Week.” It was a week dedicated entirely to student, faculty and guest writers, and we would all read our work and what it means to be a writer. I remember one talk, in particular, that talked about one teacher’s experience training...

Don’t forget all the positives in life

As college students, it is easy to think we are ‘broke.’ Many students, upon not being able to afford another cup of coffee at Starbucks or Java, or being able to afford the $100 sweater they had their eye on, will roll their eyes and tell their friends “I’m so poor.” While there are,...
