Getting the most of online classes!

With under a week to the start of the new semester, it is obvious that it will start online. That being said there are two kinds of students in the world. Ones who enjoy online classes and those who do not. If you are the latter then I am sure you have a hard time focusing and being productive and the following are some of the ways that you can get the most out of online classes.

START NOW!!!

During the first lockdown, I woke up every day hoping to find the motivation to study and utilize my time in a productive manner, but I mostly ended up lazing in bed all day. I spent most of my time pondering about matters that were beyond my control. Unfortunately, time went by fast and behold, it was almost exam period. I found myself having lots of school projects due and I wasn’t prepared for my exams.  

How to properly pack

The purpose of this blog post is to emphasize the importance of well-organized travel. Traveling with less allows you to be free and eliminate the problems that occur when carrying a truck load. Packing items that satisfy your basic needs is essential and needs to be put at the top of your list. Documents required, by the university, or for travel should be kept close because without them you are not going anywhere. All other items, you will be able to find at the stores of the city that you travel to.

New Year’s Traditions in Hungary

When talking about Hungary it is impossible to ignore the numerous traditions that come with the illustrious history and culture of the country - from the advent wreaths of Christmas to Luca Day - there are many wonderful traditions to behold. However, a special place is reserved for the new year’s traditions that take place in the country each year. Surrounded by the warmth of friends and family, traditions passed down from generation to generation light up homes around the country.

Merry Christmas! / Boldog karácsonyt!

In Hungary, Christmas Eve is very important and is called 'Szent-este' which means Holy Evening. People spend the evening with their family and decorate the Christmas Tree. Sometimes only the adults decorate the tree (without the children there), so when children come in and see the tree, it's a great surprise and they are told that angels brought the tree for them!

New year, New me

Everyone knows New Year’s resolutions can be hard to keep. With goals like losing weight and staying active, we may start the year off on the right foot but start to renege on their commitment as the year goes on. It is important to consider why you are creating these goals for yourself in the first place.

How to take care of your mind?

The pandemic has pushed us into an abyss of uncertainty, fear and gloom. It can be tough to navigate through the new reality, but there is a way to go about it. As a psychology student, I am happy to remind you of a few simple yet game-changing tips for mental well-being. 

I believe that sustaining mental hygiene is as important as washing our hands. Taking that extra time to understand why you are feeling a certain way can be relieving. Here’s a little diagram to help you out with this. 

The best of food delivery from a student’s perspective

The COVID-19 pandemic proved how important the internet is. Ordering online is an easy and convenient way to shop while social distancing. And if I am being honest, it actually saves you a lot of time. In the past few months, apps like Tesco, Wolt, VisitMe and NetPincer have proved extremely useful. While at home, awaiting my delivery, I could keep busy studying for exams or attending classes.
