How to Beat the Mid-Term Blues

“How many more days until school is over?” I find myself asking my friends this question to my friends wayyyy too much, and I bet you do too. But who can blame us? It is half way through the second semester of the school year, and this is what I like to call the “mid-term slump.” It is the part of the year where you feel like you have been in school forevvver and your motivation is seriously lacking. It can even be a bit depressing. Don’t let the slump rule your life, take control! Here are a few ways to overcome it.

  1. Find what isn’t working and change it: If your grades or slipping or you feel like you are losing connection with some of your friends, make a change! Change the way you study, and change the way you stay in touch and stay close to your friends.
  2. Take care of yo-self: When your mind is in 20 different places and when you aren’t feeling motivated, it is easy to put taking care of yourself on the back burner. Don’t do that! Take care of yourself emotionally by writing in a journal or talking to a friend, and take care of yourself physically by taking a study or work break and going on a walk or working out. Keep yourself healthy and feeling good, it will help keep you out of the slump!frabz-wake-me-up-when-semester-ends-3b624c
  3. Talk to a friend: Let them know how you are feeling. Odds are, they are feeling slump-ish too! Talking about it can help, and you can both try and come up with ways to stay motivated!
  4. Realize it will be over soon: Summer will be here before you know it, I promise. Counting down can sometimes make the time seem like it goes by slower. Quit crossing off the days and just enjoy the moment! These are some of the best days of our lives, so make them count!

Stay far from the slump, you will thank yourself in the long run!

XOXO, Chels

Why I Went Out for School Sports

This year I decided to go out for my school’s tennis team, and it was such a great decision. I was on the dance team my freshmen year and loved it, but because of my crazy schedule I had to stop. I loved being on the dance team because of all the friendships I made, the fun dances we got to do, the events and competitions we got to perform at, and because it was great exercise! I missed being on a school sport, so I joined tennis. Here are 3 reasons I decided to go out for tennis this year!

  1. It was my senior year and I wanted to try something new. Senior year is your last hoorah before real life kicks in, so take advantage of it!

  2. Being on a team keeps me motivated and exercising often. I love the feeling of hearing my friends and teammates cheering me on when I make a good serve or a good save during my matches. It is so exhilarating! Also, because we practice or have matches almost every day, I am constantly exercising. I get to stay in shape AND hang out with my friends, all at the same time!
  3. Getting involved in high school is so rewarding and making new friends is so fun. Being on a school sports team gives you a sense of pride. Wherever you go for matches or competitions you get to represent your school! I also love all of the new friends I have made through tennis. Plus, I am on the team with my sister! Bonus!

I have loved being on my school’s sports teams throughout my high school experience. If you have never been on one or are contemplating it, I highly recommend it! You will not regret being involved in school. These are memories you will take with you the rest of your life!

XOXO, Chels

Whether you’re in high school or college, finals week is always a scary time.  Between studying for multiple classes and trying to keep your sanity, the last week of school can get hectic.  In order not to lose your cool, check out these tips for a smooth finals week!Chelsea Crockett- studying for finals

  • Put your phone on silent and set it across the room! I know this may sound impossible to some, but it’s totally worth it. Every 30 minutes allow yourself to check your phone! You’ll be super focused!
  • DON’T study too much! Sitting at a desk for 7 hours reading the same material won’t do much for you. Instead, study for an hour and then take a snack or TV show break. You’ve got to allow some time for yourself.
  • Get a good night’s sleep! If you think staying up till 4a.m. is the way to go you’re wrong! Try closing your books at 10p.m. and hitting the hay.
  • Keep distractions to a minimum. It’s easy for our minds to wander, so being in a quiet environment will help with that.
  • Eat brain foods like bananas, blueberries, and almonds.
  • DON’T stress out! If you start to panic about an exam it will be harder to study! Believe in yourself!

Good luck Insiders!

High School to College Transition: What You Should Know

Transitioning from high school to college is a big deal.  You’re moving away from home, forced to make new friends, and have to decide what you want to do for the rest of your life.  That’s a lot to think about!  Luckily, there are multiple ways to make this transition easier.

If you are doing a random roommate, take the time to get to know them before you get to school!  If you live far away, text, add each other on social media sites, or talk on the phone!  If you live close, meet up for lunch or shopping.  It’s a great way to break the ice!

It’s important to remember that you’re not alone when you step on campus.  Every single freshman is in your same position, therefore it’s important to be outgoing!  It’s the number one rule to making friends in college.  Don’t be shy to introduce yourself to anyone and everyone you meet.  You might just meet your new best friend!  Also, make a point to get to know your professors.  Having a professor know you personally is a great way to score brownie points and get extra help in class.  They may also be very helpful in the future when it comes to picking classes or getting a job.  It’s also important to make your dorm room as comfortable as possible!  Even though it won’t be like your room at home, try to make it as close as possible!Chelsea Crockett- dorm

Do not worry if you have no idea what you want to major in.  Take time your freshman year to decide what you want to do by completing your general education courses first.  This way, you will have another year to decide!

Most importantly, stay true to yourself!  Someone on campus will love you for you, so do not change to be part of a certain crowd.  Soon enough, you will find a close group of friends!  Everything good takes time, right?!  Live it up; college is the best time of your life!

XOXO,

-Chelsea, as told by a college friend

Rock your School Spirit Wear Outside of School!

Hello lovelies,             Between football games, school spirit week, and multiple volunteer opportunities, you’re destined to have over 100 shirts, hoodies, or sweatpants advertising your school logo.  So what do…

Hello lovelies,

            Between football games, school spirit week, and multiple volunteer opportunities, you’re destined to have over 100 shirts, hoodies, or sweatpants advertising your school logo.  So what do you do with all of this school spirit wear? Well no need to fret, it’s cool to rep your school!  Don’t feel weird rocking a school hoodie with your mascot on it.  Embrace it!  Here are a few simple tips to styling your school spirit wear when you’re not at school.Chelsea Crockett- school spirit wear

It’s okay to alter your shirts and sweatshirts, as long as your parents don’t mind.  Since the crop trend is totally in, why not bring it to school spirit wear?!  Try cutting the bottom of a crewneck sweatshirt and wearing it with high-waisted jean shorts.  If you really want to wear your favorite pair of spirit sweatpants, add a simple v-neck and, as long as they are straight-legged, a pair of high-heeled Nike shoes.  If your sweatpants are extra-long, try tucking them into your shoes.  Although it might sound a little wacky, the heel of the tennis shoe will add a special element to the comfy outfit.

In the winter, a cute way to rock a school tee is with an oversized cardigan and leggings.  Pair this look with riding boots, and you’ve got the simplest outfit in history; and it’s cute!  Don’t be afraid to add a simple necklace or ring to spice the look up.  School logo tanks are the easiest to style.  Throw it on with high-waisted shorts or a skirt with your choice of shoes and you’re good to go!  It’s easy to fill your closet up with school spirit wear, especially when you get some of it for free!  Don’t let it sit around; incorporate it into your everyday wardrobe.

Have a wonderful day!

-Chelsea

How to Stay Christian in High School

High School: The definition of Friday night football, pep assemblies, oh-so-awesome algebra, and cliques everywhere you look. How can you keep your faith strong and still have fun during your high school years? Keep reading, my darling Insiders, and I will tell you just how.

Pray, Pray, Pray!

Praying is so important, ladies. Daily prayer is so important when it comes to staying Christian in high school. Pray for strength to keep your walk with God true. Pray that God will open your non-Christian friends to your faith, and that you’ll be able to witness to them when the time is right.  Most importantly, pray that your faith is strengthened. God promises us that He hears our prayers and answers them, so just keep praying!

Chelsea Crockett Just Keep Praying

Make Christian BFF’s!

You’re going to get a lot of pressure to do the wrong things in high school. In some cases, the folks pressuring you don’t know or believe that the things they do are wrong, and sometimes they just want to see you trip in your walk of faith. You’re going to need support to keep on fighting the good fight, and that’s where Christian friends come in. They’re walking the same walk you are, and they are fighting the same battles. When you are together you are stronger than when you are alone. Use that to your advantage!

Chelsea Crockett christian meme

Don’t forget the importance of church attendance

Remember when we said that you are stronger when you are with other Christians than when you are alone? Your church family is the perfect example of this. God provides us that network of support, and He wants us to use it. Church attendance will strengthen your faith and help you find the strength to “no” when you need to say it.

Chelsea Crockett meme

So what do you think? Will it be easy or hard for you to stay Christian in High School? I think you can do it! If you have any questions, leave them in the comment section below!

XOXO, Chels

Whether you’re graduating middle school, high school, or college, graduation is right around the corner!  With so many eyes on you and hundreds of pictures being taken, it’s important to have the right outfit.  It’s time to find the perfect graduation look!

Graduation is a very important event, therefore go for a dress.  When shopping for a dress, avoid anything strapless.  Go for a dress with straps and one you will be comfortable in.  Graduation Chelsea Crockett- graduation dressceremonies usually last a long time, so you do not want to constantly be pulling up your dress, especially in front of your principals and family members.  Since the weather will be transitioning from spring to summer, go for a fun colored flowy dress as well!  You don’t want to look too business professional, so opt for a dress right above the knee with a bright color or pattern!

Walking across the stage at graduation can be nerve racking, so don’t wear 6 inch heels.  Instead, go for a wedge.  Wedge heels have more support and are easier to walk in!  If you’re still worried about falling, try finding heels that have an ankle strap.  This will prevent your feet from sliding around in your shoe.

Happy Graduation!
