Okay CU students, we basically have one month left of school which means it’s time to really buckle down and finish out the year strong! The last month of school is always the most stressful because the remaining work usually consists of assignments that are the most time consuming and most weighted for your GPA. This last stretch is going to feel like you’re not going to have a moment to yourself with everything you need to get done. BUT DON’T STRESS. Don’t stress about finding a job, don’t stress about getting all A’s, don’t stress about being stressed because you know what comes from stress? Pimples, weight gain, and lack of sleep. Also ask yourself if whatever you’re stressing about is going to be important to your life in a couple of years, if not, that should help you to be a little less hard on yourself. Take a deep breath and take a break from whatever you’re doing. Taking a break might seem like a waste of time, especially when you have a lot to do before certain deadlines, but it will really help your mental health in the long run. Do your best this last month but don’t kill yourself over the work!

Lily is a senior at the University of Colorado at Boulder and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies along with a certificate in Business. She is originally from Scarborough, Maine, but decided to venture to Colorado for it's beauty and to get back in touch with her birth place which is Boulder. She is a Film Studies major because she is very interested in the behind the scenes of what goes into making a film. Not only that, but her favourite hobby in the world is to watch movies. She recently went abroad to Sydney, Australia to get a taste of a different culture. While being there, she learned to not take life too seriously, and to slow things down. The Australian lifestyle can really teach a person how to be chill. You can find Lily at the movies, hanging on Pearl Street having a beer with friends, or at the breathtaking lookout of Flagstaff enjoying the view.
