With the new school year starting, there is always an odd mixture of feeling excited and overwhelmed at the same time. There are plenty of things to prepare for, from buying school supplies and outfits, and all your last minute necessities.
Here is our list of must have school accessories to help get you started on the path to success!
Headphones are an essential item to have, and have become equally as important as your notebooks and laptop! You can listen to lectures or podcasts while on the go or your favorite song to pump you up! They are a great tool to help you focus while studying, and if you prefer to study in silence, keeping them in your ears without anything playing is an easy and polite way to keep the distracters away. Investing in a good pair of durable headphones will survive longer through all the hustle and bustle. But, if you don’t feel like splurging, you can always get a noise cancelling dupe for $20-30 bucks.
Reusable Water bottle:
It’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day. With a reusable water you’re saving money and helping the environment. Plus, drinking enough water helps prevent unhealthy snacking. Keep your mind refreshed!
Lap Top Lock
Not only are laptops expensive, but it has all your invaluable work. Don’t let a bathroom break be the reason for your laptop to go missing, it’s worth the investment!
Every student knows there is always a task to accomplish, whether you are trying to catch up or get ahead! Wunderlist and Any.Do are two popular task manager apps which help you get organized so you never miss a thing!
Good luck in the new school year, we wish you all the best!
Congratulations class of 2016! You have worked hard and are probably counting down the days until commencement.
No matter what your next step is after graduation, here are four ways to take advantage of your transitioning period!
- Find a job!
If you’re not looking for a full time job, a seasonal summer job is great way to prepare for future responsibilities and make some money in the meantime.
The older you get; the more responsibilities you are going to have. The transitioning/summer period after graduation is a great time to take advantage of for traveling. A domestic trip is an affordable alternative to traveling overseas and a great opportunity to see the culture of different states.
This is a great time to get in the habit of reading. Pick up the hottest novel, an autobiography of your favorite icon, or even a blog! Make sure to exercise your mind!
- Spend time with your family!
It is easy to get caught up with your studies and work, take advantage of your leisure time to spend time with your family and friends!
Crystal Auto Mall wishes all graduates the best of luck! Well done! All the best in your future endeavors!
