What To Do When You Are Tired But You Need To Stay Up



You know those nights. When you are tired. Like super tired. But you also have like ten million things of homework left? Yeah that happens sometimes. Or you know a lot depending on the school you go to. Or maybe it is not homework but instead you desperately have to finish binge watching the whole season of that tv show. Yeah... That happens sometimes too. In this post I am going to give you guys some tips on how to stay awake when you are super super tired.

1. Be active

Move around. Run. Sit up sit down. Just move and didn't let yourself stay in one position or else there is a possibility that you will wake up in the morning with no idea why you aren't in bed.



2. Drink something with caffeine

I personally don't like coffee like at all but I do hear that it helps keep you up. Stuff like caffeinated tea also helps. 


3. Drink a cold drink

In the morning when I first wake up and I am not really up but I need to go to school a lot of times I will drink a cold drink like apple juice that has been in the fridge. It is refreshing and definitely helps me stay awake. 


4. Talk with someone or just sing a song to your self

It will help keep you because first you have to think and second it makes you move (your mouth at least) which as I said helps. 

5. Sit up straight

The reason we sleep on our backs and not standing or sitting up is because laying down increases tiredness. 

6. Stare at a screen

TVs and phones and computers and ipods and kindles and all of those other stuff have this type of lighting that pretty much keeps you awake (I don't know the whole science of it or anything). Anyway it keeps you up. A lot of times my parents will be super annoying about this and not let me use my computer like ten million hours before I go to bed because it will "keep me up". Bahhh!

 

7. Just go outside

If it is dark this won't help but if it is during the day go outside and just enjoy the sunshine. The sun like tells your body to wake up pretty much.

8. Splash your face with water or take a cold shower

I also do this in the morning when I need to go to school. Putting cold water on your face just awakens your senses and helps you not fall asleep. 

And that is it for now! Comment down below your tips for staying up and also if the tips I gave helps you. Thanks and bye!

5 Tips For When You Are Trying to Get a Song Out of Your Head




Hello peoples! What's up? So a normal part of the human experience is getting songs stuck in your head. Like for the whole day and you just keep singing it (in your head or out loud) and it just won't stop. Like an ever revolving playlist of only one song or a bike gif. It keeps going and going and going. Sometimes this can get quite annoying so I have decided to give you guys some tips and ideas that I use when trying to get songs or phrases out of my head. Enjoy and I hope this helps!

Sing a different song

Find a song that you love. Maybe your favorite song. Sing the song or play it a couple times to get the other song out of your head. If you are lucky then now you will have no song stuck in your head or if you are a tiny bit less lucky (still pretty amazing though) you could get your favorite song stuck in your head.

Watch a movie or tv show or video 

When I am sick or if I just don't feel good then I love just watching tv. It takes my mind of off basiclly everything. It can also take your mind off of other things like for example a song stuck in your head. Get your favorite movie or for something shorter look at your favroite youtubers videos.
Watch and sooner or later the song will no longer even exist.

Work on your math homework or solve some word problems

Thinking about other sentences or words drives the other song lyrics away. There are like abuzillion games online with cross word puzzles that are very helpful in situations like these. Math or math problems can also help. Yes I did just give you a good reason to go finish that math homework that is due tomorow. 



Look up the lyrics

No actually, I am not kidding. A lot of times when you have a song stuck in your head it is just a snippet of the song. Maybe the chorus or one or two lines of verse. So if you actualy learn the whole song your mind will stopping guessing what the rest of the song is. Another way this could help is that if you know the whole song then it will be too many lines to play in your mind on a continuous basis. 


Eat food or gum

When you chew or eat food sometimes the whole movement thing can interfere with the sound in your head. It messes everything up. Gum works the best but other foods can also help. This helps me sometimes and sometimes not but it is still worth a go.

And that is it for now folks! At the moment I have Katy Perry's new song Chained to the Rhythm stuck in my head. I have literally memorized the whole song to all of my family's horror. Comment down below what song you have stuck in your head and also what your tips are for getting songs out of your head. Bye and I love you guys!

How To Have The Most Amazing Lazy Day Ft. My Staying In Essentials



I am on spring break right now and I feel extremely lazy. No school and nothing truly important that I have to do. You know those days when you just feel like doing nothing and instead just laying in bed doing nothing. THAT WOULD BE ME RIGHT NOW. Sorry. Anyway so I have decided to grace you with my knowledge on how to have the perfect lazy day. Enjoy!

1. Find the perfect bed or couch

Hop on to your cozy bed or the couch right in front of the tv

2. Pile on the blankets

Blankets are essential for pretty much everything involving comfort. They just are. The best kind are either humongous or fluffy or BOTH. 

3. Plug in some headphones

Music is also very important to this sacred process. Listen to some of your favroite artists and lose yourself in the awesomeness of the songs. 

4. Turn on the tv or maybe youtube

Watching videos is like one of the best ways to past time. watch that movie that you have been wanting to see forever or maybe catch up on your favorite youtuber. 

5. Read

Reading is the actual best way to past time. Crack down on that tbr list and just read. Snuggling up in the covers with a good book is like the closest thing you will get to heaven on earth. 

6. Write or draw in a journel

I find writing or drawing to be super soothing. Maybe more of a diary entry or the next Mona Lisa.

7. Make some tea

Tea is perfect for everything lazy or tired. Get a herbal tea bag maybe add some honey and then voila. The perfect staying in drink.

8. Order a pizza and eat in bed

Eating in bed is usually a big no no for me since it makes crumbs but when I am feeling especially lazy it kind of makes me feel like a princess. Make a little something for yourself and then enjoy in the comfort of your covers. 

9. You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream

Ice cream is like life. I love ice cream although I like never get it since my parents won't buy it for me. My favroite flavor is proably cookies and cream. 

And that is my perfect night in and my tips for how to have a lazy day. Comment down below what your perfect lazy day would include! Thanks to Leesa, which is a mattress company, for inspiring me to do this post!

5 Things You Should Do Daily To Be A Good Student



Hello everyone! So as you might know I am in middle school at the moment and I must admit it is kind of hard. Like very very hard. And that is just 6th grade. No I am not pretending to be an expert but today I am telling 5 things you should do daily to become a better student overall. Enjoy!

Check your grades 

Not all schools have this but my school has an online gradebook called parent student connect or gradespeed where you can check your grades. All you have to do is make an account and sign in. If you do have something like this I recommend definitely looking at your grades. It is good to check daily so that if you are failing a class or missing something you can address it right away. If you school does not have a system like this then just ask your teacher.


Write in an agenda or planner of some kind

Planners are basiclly essential for school (and life in general). Every school that I have been to hands out agendas at the beginning of the year but if that is not the way for you then planners are pretty cheap at almost any store. All through elementary school I never really used by agenda because well first I wasn't organized and second I guess I just didn't have much homework. Now that I am in middle school though I can not live without my agenda. Homework, important dates, and what the heck that girl's name is that sits across from you in science should all go in your agenda/planner. 


Read Read Read

It has been seriously proven that by reading you become smarter. The average american reads only about 19 minutes per day and most of that is proably for school or work. I challenge you to do some reading at home. I promise you. Its helps. Maybe read and go over the section of your science textbook for the test tomorow. Or possibly read more of a pleasure book like the hunger games. 


Smile

Everyone's proably like "I came here to get better grades not get tips that don't help!". Yes yes yes I relize that. But guess, what smiling does help your grades and also everything else in your life. When you smile you basiclly trick your brain into thinking that you are happy which leads to happiness. When you have a positive attitude everything goes better. It is easier to listen in class, harder to give up on homework, and you will just be a happier person. When you are feeling like nothing is going right at school... smile. 


Ask a question

During class so many students don't understand the concept but are too lazy or shy or ignorant to ask a question. This is a PROBLEM. Every school day ask at least one question. Maybe something that you have been struggling with lately, something clarifying exactly what the teacher wants you to do, or maybe just a question that you think will help others. 



And that is it for now folks! I hope these tips help. :) Comments down below if you agree with these points and also what are your tips for school?

spring break and st patrick's day and just life

Whats up. This post for some reason isn't scheduled. So be afraid.

I am on spring break right now and having quite a bit of fun.

My family is renting a beach house in galveston that is really nice.

A couple of my aunts came which always makes things cooler.

I love water and swimming so being by the beach is magical.

That galveston water though.

It is all grey and seaweedy.

And the beach is nonexistent.

It is just mud.

Which never makes for cute pictures.

I am hoping to do something tomorrow afternoon (maybe) that could make some of you guys happy.

If I do it right but I only have like a 40% of succeeding.

Today is St. Patrick's day.

Which is cool I guess.

Celebrating the Saints.

And Green.

I am wearing green today but entirely by accident.

I have on a dark green shirt that my parents got me from guatemala that has a turtle on it.

I am using it as a bathing suit cover up.

Also the water is so cold.

I guess that should be expected though.

In some parts of the country there was a blizzard and it seemed to be snowing like everywhere.

For anyone affected by that I pray for you.

Now I will go.

And see if I can try to be a healthy person and maybe go run on the beach.

Wish me luck.

I had fun typing this.

Comment if I should do more stuff like this.

Also comment what you are doing over break.

13 Quotes By Women For Women #National Women's Day



Happy International Women's Day everyone! I actually originally had a different post scheduled for today but then I remembered it was women's day so I had to do something. If you didn't know already today is a day that you are supposed to celebrate women. It is also A Day Without Women where if you chose to do so and if you were a women of course you could have pretty much not worked to show that you cared for the cause. I was going to wear red (because that is also something you could have done) but I couldn't find any red accessories that I could wear with my school uniform. Anyway today I am listing 13 quotes by women for women. I hope these are inspiring and or thought provoking. By the way most of these are super random but I like them so deal with it.

Also none of these images are mine as I found most of them on pinterest. If they are yours and you would like attribution or for me to take it down please email me. Now let's get started!
