For this first series I am going to answer 5 of the most asked questions when it comes to deciding whether or not to study abroad I will go through them in todays post and for the next five weeks I will dedicate a post for each of them.

Is Studying Abroad Really For Me?
Sure the idea of studying abroad seems amazing and fun and interesting. It is basically a beautiful adventure but is it really for you. Before you even start this journey its important to  find out if this is a path you would want to take. Here are a couple of questions that I urge you to answer truthfully before you go any further.
  • Do I like to travel?
  • Do I like traveling to places I have never been before?
  • Can I live without my friends and family?
  • Can I live without my support system for a long period of time?
  • Do I actually love exploring new culture?
  • What is the most important thing I want to get from this experience academically, professionally and/or personally?
If you answer most of these questions "yes" then it is a great start for this journey of yours but if you answer most of the questions "no" then I believe this experience is not for you.The reality is studying abroad is it is an adventure, it is hard and its is not for everyone so if its not for you there is no problem but if it is then welcome for this amazing ride.

When and Where Do I Study Abroad?
When choosing a destination there are many factors to consider. There are many destinations to choose from which may seem overwhelming especially if you don't have a particular place in mind and you have never left your home country. The first advice that I would give you is to start by narrowing down the locations you what to visit and having all the pros and cons for those locations, look for places that interest you for one reason or another. Have as many locations as you want because this is the primary draft.

After making your primary list the next step is to narrow down your idle location to specific criteria. This is going to help you narrow down your perfect location. the mistake that a lot of people make is that they choose the country or city they want to travel to first before actually looking at the features that that particular area has. When you actually choose the country first you actually limit yourself to what that country has to offer but when you figure out the type of life you want to leave then you have a lot of options to choose from. Some questions that you could ask yourself are;

  • Do I want to leave in a place that English is the official language or a foreign language as the official language
  • Do I want an urban experience or a more rural experience
  • Do I want weather similar to that in my country or completely different fro my country
  • Do I want a diverse population or a more native population where I want to live
  • Do I want to leave in a centralized town with more to do or a distant location
These are just a few questions that you could ask yourself and this will help you make your decision better.

What program am I going to study abroad?
By now you have chosen where you want to study and now you are looking for what type of program do you want to take part in. First do you want a summer program, a semester program or a longterm program. That depends on you and what exactly you would like to get out of this experience. You also have to make sure that the field your interested in pursuing make sure the country is good at it. E.G don't study computer science in a school that is best known for Engineering so you know what I mean.
What is the financial situation (how am I going to pay for this?)
One of the biggest concern about studying abroad is how am going to afford it?. Many students and parents have to think about this really hard because it’s not only about paying your tuition but also how are you going to support yourself. One of the best way to finance a study abroad program is through schorlaship oppportuinties. If you decide to go through this route it is important to know that it is very competitive and so you have to apply to several different schorlaships to increase your chances or winning. Also you have to start early so that you have the time to do this correctly.

Once you have your tuition figured out you have to start saving up or budgeting for your daily expenses and this is why choose-ingredients to live in a place you can afford is very important because from that rough estimation you can actually know how much you need to save and Howe you would be able to raise that money. As you plan and budget prioritize what is important and what you can leave without and from there you will know how to save and budget for your trip.

There yo u have it a couple of tips and tricks on getting started with your study abroad dream. Hope this was helpful and if it was then please leave a comment down below because i would love to hear from you.

After a grueling semester it is just unthinkable that some of us have to go back and do some summer classes. Hey a girls got to so what a girls got to do and in this post i will be sharing with you guys some tips and tricks that help me study in an effective manner during the summer.

Set yourself some goals:
Yes its sounds easy right but a lot of people don’t even think about this step when preparing for any semester. This is really important during the summer because you are actually setting yourself a roadmap on how you want the semester to go and this will help you stay focused as well as know what your goal is and what you have to do.You can set your goals any way you want. It all depends on you, you could do it in a to do list fashion or you can decide to do it in a more journals form what ever suits you best do it in that way.

Take some really amazing notes:
Summer classes go by really fast especially because it is so compressed. Six weeks is a really short time to go through things that will normally take 4months, this is why taking amazing notes is important. When you have amazing notes you are basically making the studying process easier on yourself and you have a higher chance of having good grades in that class. Also taking good notes means you are taking the notes in your own way and in the way you understand. This reduce your study time because you will be revising the notes and not trying to make sense of what the text book is saying.
Find new study areas/ Find new study buddies:
The summer time is a great time to meet new people and find new study groups and areas to study. Changing your scenery will actually do wonders to your studying. Try studying outside or moving tables or just build. anew routine and it will make such a huge difference. Also during the summer not all your friends will be taking classes like you so this is the best time to meet new people and find new study groups. If you don't have a study-group don't worry there are so many study with me sessions on youtube so you can definitely still virtually study with new people.

Sync your school and social calendar:
Now this is something I swear by because it actually works. When you have so many different calendars in my opinion it makes it difficult to actually know what you have to do and at what time. When you have your social, work and school calendar in one place it gives you a real sense of what your day looks like and you defiantly can plan more and plan better on how you are going to tackle the pigs for that day.

When retaking a class don't start from the beginning:
Yes sometimes we take summer classes because we didn't do well in a particular class but not to worry you have an advantage over the others. Since you have taken this class before you know the areas you need to focus more on the the parts you just have to gloss over. Also you have your previous notes and things you used in that class so just use them during the summer and you will be golden.
Give yourself a break:
Remember it is still the summer, take breaks and do other things that are not school related this is going to help you study better because you will not feel like you are missing out on something. But as with everything do it with moderation. And remember this will literally be over in no time.

Have an idea of what the test will look like:
It's always good to be prepared and having an idea of what the test is going to look like is a really good ways to go. Look through test preps or quizzes the professor gives as well as ask them what the test will look like and that way you can plan accordingly and know what is your best strategy for studying.

Use all the resources at your disposal:
There are so many resources you can use to make your study experience easier and way mire fun. Try them out and figure out what works for you ad what doesn't. Some of them are;

  • reviews with professors
  • practice questions
  • quizlet
  • chegg
  • text books
  • class notes
  • study apps

Hey guys, am here with a life update or should I say a weightloss update and to be honest with you there is really not much to report. unfortunately the month diid not start as planned. I have been so busy and to be honest I know this is more of an excuse. I have had exams and I am just so bad at studying and working out I really don't know why. I think it is a mentality thing but hey just saying. so for this reason I have decided to start a challenge for my self. I know am crazy but I really want to challenge myself to do this. I hope you all join me and support me in this endeavor.

Starting from tomorrow which is so ironic valentines day I will go to the gym twice a day for a week and I will let you know how that turns out. I am hoping that it will be possible and that I am able to do that. it is very satisfying but making the plans is the easy thing actually going through with it is where the fun really lies I will be posting my progress on all my social media platforms so if you are not following me on there you definitely should.

Omg thinking about it I can't really believe I am writing about this. I personally feel like this is one of the hardest things I have had to do since I actually started my blog. it is really easy to write about things that we feel comfortable doing or writing but the toughest part is opening yourself to not only failure but judgement. I decided to write this post because I really just wanted to express my self in the best way I know how being me.

Starting a weight loss journey is so hard I can't tell you how many times I have started and stoped. made some progress and then gone 7 steps back the next month. get motivated and then fall of my motivation but that is life right?, the process is really not fun at all but that is why it is called a journey.

So today the first of February 2019 I will like to start a new challenge on blog which is the #befitfebuary. This is for anyone out there who needs some motivation to go to the gym or eat healthy or just drink more water or gain weight what ever stage you are in your fitness journey I just want to let you know that you are not alone and that there are people going through the same things you are going through.

I also am going to redoing check ups with you every Friday to let you in on my progress. It's time we take our health in to our own hands. It's
time we control our bodies and not the other way around. If you decide to join the race just leave a comment down below and follow me on my social media so we can interact with each other and support each other. See you next Friday and until next time be safe out there.
