It is about that time where the semester is starting to come to a close. As students reflect on their school year, I am sure there are some things that come to mind. One being, what could I have done to make my semester easier? What should I bring next year to ensure a more productive and smooth semester? Here is a list of things that could help you!
Why have a bulky laptop when you carry a lightweight Chromebook! Not only are Chromebooks lighter in weight, but they are also less likely to hold viruses. Also, office programs such as Google Docs and Google Sheets, come with online auto-save, so you rarely have to worry about losing your important documents. They also function at a faster rate than standard laptops do. Lastly, Chromebooks are normally cheaper than conventional laptops, as well. They can cost as little as $100 and function just as well.
2. Portable Charger
Having a portable charger for your phone could really come in handy. In case you are busy going from class to class or forget to charge your phone the night before, having a charger on hand could really become useful. Let’s face it, we all need our phones. Whether it is to meet with a study group or answer a potential job offering. It is always good to keep your phone charged, especially in emergencies.
3. Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Having a pair of noise-canceling headphones could really help you during a rough semester. Listening to some music and drowning out the outside world could help de-stress and relax. Not having to worry about the tons of assignments you have come up, could really help ease your stress. However, it could also help with your assignments! For some, music can help students zone into whatever assignment they are working on which allows them to power through it. Also, if you happen to have noisy roommates, it helps to have these headphones so you can focus on your studies.
I hope this list was beneficial in helping you succeed in your college career!
