Topic: Everything Education / How to Succeed in College?

College is supposed to be one of the most vital and stimulating experiences of an individual’s life. It’s the first time you break out of your protective shell and into the real world. For many, college spells freedom. But a wise person once said, with great freedom comes great responsibility. If you enjoy the freedom college provides without the responsibility it demands, it can turn into the most expensive mistake you’ve ever made.

Amidst all the late-night parties, new friendships, odd jobs, and co-curricular activities, it can be easy to lose focus and stray from your ultimate goal of graduating on time. The longer it takes to graduate, the more classes you’re forced to take, the more money you’re spending, and the further away you are from achieving your goals, which can lead to frustration that may finally cause you to drop out of college.

So, how do you make sure that your college journey is a success? The trick lies in smart planning and then following that plan. As a starting point, here are some tips on how to succeed in college:

Choose Your Major Wisely

One of the biggest reasons people are unable to graduate on time is because they choose the wrong college degree. While it could be that expecting a teenager to know what he/she wants to do with their life at such a young age is probably asking too much, that’s how the system works, and we need to find a way to work within it.

The primary way to successfully decide what you want to do is get in tune with your interests, capabilities, and personality. Figure out which classes you enjoyed the most in high school, stuff that you’re good at, or things you are passionate about. Make sure you choose college programs that suit your personal goals rather than fit into anyone else’s idea of what you should be doing. Once you’ve zeroed in on a college major, then you can start looking at colleges and universities offering your preferred major.

Financial Planning

If you’re not one of the lucky ones whose parents had the resources and/or foresight to save for your college career, you will likely have to depend on a combination of resources to finance your education. Proper financial planning is another key to making college a success.

As soon as you’ve decided on a major and have applied to a college, start researching the financial aid options that you are qualified to receive, and then start applying for them as soon as possible, as some of them work on “first come, first served” basis. In case you have to take out an education loan to fund college, stick to federal loans that have lower interest rates and flexible payment plans.

And if you’re planning to work your way through college, or at least a part of it, make sure you are able to balance your job with school, and that prioritize your education. Overtime, working two jobs, working weekends and holidays, etc., may help you pay your tuition, but if it leaves you too exhausted for your coursework, there’s little point in attending school.

One of the most important tips for making your college education a success is to limit the use of your credit card. If you don’t spend wisely and pay your bills on time, not only will you end up with a huge debt to pay off, but you will also have a negative credit report.

Time Management

Once you learn to manage your time in college, you’ll have developed a valuable skill you can use for the rest of your life. Distractions like hanging out with friends, attending party after party, spending time on the Internet updating your Facebook and Twitter statuses, playing video games, or focusing all your energies on extra-curricular activities can wreak havoc on your schedule.

This does not mean you have to stay cooped up in your room after class, but it is necessary you learn to balance these activities, managing your time so that you are able to enjoy the good things about college life without falling behind on your coursework.

Again, school should remain your priority—don’t miss classes, as you may find it difficult to grasp the topic through self-study, or you may miss an important discussion you won’t find in your textbook. Make use of the resources your college has in place for you to connect with your instructors and tutoring staff for clarifications or to clear up doubts about any topic you find particularly difficult.

Dedicate two to three hours each day to studying and submit your assignments on time. Procrastination is the biggest evil that lies between you and your college degree.

Finally, having a study partner and organizing group study nights can make learning fun, provided it doesn’t get transformed into an impromptu party scene.

Stay Healthy and Have Fun

One of the most important tips for succeeding in college is to stay healthy. There can be a lot of peer pressure to party endlessly, smoke and drink excessively, stay unhealthily slim, and look good at all times. You don’t have to do anything just to fit in with the crowd or appear “cool.”

Remember that you are in school for a reason, and spending thousands of dollars so you can make something of your life at the end of four years. You will be a huge disappointment to yourself and your loved ones if the only things you learn in college are different ways of drinking beer and purging food.

College is one of the most important experiences of your life—plan carefully and always prioritize your schoolwork, but don’t forget to have fun. After all, you will never get these years back!

Topic: Everything Education / do my assignment

Irrespective of the academic disciplines, a student has to be familiar with academic writing in his/her life. Preparing such documents requires the students to understand how to convey their opinions and ideas with proper clarity.
So the following are some great tips suggested by the experts on assignment help in Australia to refine and sharpen your academic writing skills.
Grammarly is an amazing online tool that allows you to spot grammatical errors, incorrect sentence construction, punctuation and much more. It even offers suggestions to reduce repetition of the same words. It can be really useful for those who often search on the internet “Can anyone do my assignment”. The premium version even offers plagiarism checker.
Another reason why students look for help with writing is that most of the times the papers are given grades. So what you can do is take the grades off. Instead, ask them to write about whatever they feel like. Repeat this exercise every day. This will help them to overcome their fears. After few days, correct the mistakes by making them a part of the grammar classes for write my assignment. Through this, they will also make fewer mistakes.
Many experts have observed that people tend to read differently on paper and on screen, so you can get a copy of your writing printed out before proceeding with the proofreading. If you read loudly, your ear might detect the errors that your eyes couldn’t figure out. Or, you can hire an assignment writing expert to edit the paper on your behalf.

Topic: Health & Wellness / Benefits of Yoga

I work in a jail that houses 360 male and female(capacity0, and have responsibility for the JDC and the best part of my work week, is that I also teach Hatha Yoga and have for the past seven years. I was fortunate enough to be a certified Yoga teacher from jump, and then the county assisted in my attending a training in Chicago; The Prison Yoga Project with James Fox. James started in San Quentin about 17 years ago, check out the site for details. Anyway i am not here to plug the PYP, just to say I have experienced directly the transformation in many men and women.
Yoga isn’t about touching your toes, its about your own journey, getting in touch with yourself, learning about where you stop, how emotion pops up and how you handle it, how to calm yourself, how to feel good about yourself, how to see and facilitate transformation in yourself and others, in addition to helping with sleep, flexibility and strength..
I get so very much more from my guys than they ever give me. I discover that place that acknowledges their crime and sees their human side.
Namaste

I’m the commissary/inmate account/phones administrator for my county jail. I’m looking for ideas to streamline my process, and I’m also looking for any ideas for maybe some new technology to implement that would help not only myself, but the other officers in my facility.
Just seeing what others in my position have done that they found helped and improved productivity.

Topic: Letter of The Law / Mandated overtime?

Kentucky has staffing issues as well. The facility I work at had a mandated 12 hour shift 5 days a week. Some Officers worked it 6 days a week. We recently went to 12 hour shift 4 days a week. Those who want to work 5 or 6 days a week can now volunteer instead of being mandated. Staff shortages are the reason for MOT. The cycle list is used based on the last day you 1. worked OT, or called out. If you call out sick, you go to the top of the list and are mandated to work OT.
