Staying Sane Through Baking

The only way I’ve stayed sane through this COVID-craziness is by making food. Yes, I’ve made my own loaves of herbal bread (sourdough hasn’t been my thing), but it doesn’t have to be dramatic as that. Even taking the time to assemble a sandwich or toss a small salad together can give my...

You Deserve Happiness

Ever since coming to Arcadia, I have had an immense love for planners! During this tough time, it is very easy to become overwhelmed with course work and keeping up with your own self-care.   My advice is to plan a lot or a little—whatever works for you—just give yourself some...

Five Tips for Surviving Your Senior Thesis

Unlike many of my peers, the written component of Senior Capstone was due at the end of the fall semester instead of closer to graduation. While I was certainly not a fan of having to cram my thesis work into a single semester instead of spreading it throughout the year, this means my final...
