  • A senior!? Awesome!! I’m a sophomore. I’m excited to put some of these tips to good use! I saw you had a picture with a Botany question.. I’m taking that course right now! I LOVE MY LILLY PLANNER. It’s life. I adore how this post was set up! Very aesthetically pleasing!!!

    • Yes! It’s crazy to think that I’m going to be graduating in 7 months!!
      My degree will be in Electrical Engineering, but I’m taking a biology course as a gen ed πŸ™‚
      I’ve been working in Photoshop more trying to make my posts look more “professional” and as you said, aesthetically pleasing πŸ™‚
      Thanks love!

      • Do you have any tips on time management??? I feel like if I don’t start the semester super strong, I slowly wither away. I feel so stressed when everything starts to pile up! I feel like it only happens during fall semester when the nice weather is out!

        • I know what you mean about the weather being nice πŸ™‚
          The thing that helps me the most is making lists! When I write a list of everything I need to get done for the week it helps to motivate me. I also use icalendar/google calendar to plan out my week. I try to “schedule” when I’m going to do certain homework assignments and guess how long they’ll take me. Then I adjust it as my week progresses.
          Also, setting aside part of my day to relax helps. Then I can say to myself “okay after this assignment you have to take a biology quiz. Then after that you get to watch a show on Netflix.” Just keeping a goal in mind helps!
          I tend to get carried away with working on my blog (like I’m in lab right now soldering a circuit) lol! So if I find myself spending too much time blogging I just shut off my computer and put my phone some where that’s out of my way πŸ™‚ then I grab a snack and get to work on school stuff! I hope this helps!
          Let me know if you’d like to know more πŸ™‚

          • Thank you so much!!!! I think it’s so empowering you’re majoring in Electrical Engineering when engineering is a male dominated field. It’s inspiring πŸ™‚

          • Awh thank you!!! I hope I can inspire other girls that are interested in engineering πŸ™‚

          • I was going to….. didn’t think I’d make it haha. So I’m gonna try science out!

          • It’s definitely difficult and I’ve had some late nights, but I’m so proud of myself that I’m going to accomplish this!
            I love anything science related so that’s awesome you’re going into that! What specifically do you want to do when you graduate?

          • I don’t have that mindset haha. I’m getting a Biology BS….. I wouldn’t even care if my job had nothing to do with Bio! I just wanted to increase my chances of getting a job! Sounds awful and it might come back to bite me, but I’m terrified of being unemployed!!

          • Makes sense πŸ™‚ I’m waiting on a response from an interview I had last week! It’s nerve racking!

          • That’s great!!!!! And you aren’t even graduated yet! Look at you gooo gurllll πŸ™‚ There’s a lot of opportunity in the market for women engineers!

          • Haha yeah I’m pretty excited!
