McLovin Links November 4, 2011

By  |  0 Comments

This is what I like to call a very “blah” time of year. Halloween is over, the weather is in the process of turning from fall to winter, and Thanksgiving break seems so close yet so far away. Essays, midterms, and internships are starting to take a toll on everyone’s sanity. How can we escape college-induced stresses for even a few minutes at a time? That’s where I come in. Take some time out of your busy schedule to relax and enjoy these fun and informative links that all college students can appreciate:

1.) Small Kitchen College: Nutrition Tip: Why Oatmeal Is Amazing

I can’t think of too many better ways to start a day off than with a steaming bowl of oatmeal topped with banana slices and blueberries. If that image has your mouth watering, find out why else oatmeal is “the perfect breakfast to jumpstart your day.”

2.) College Info Geek: The Top 10 Coolest Things At Adobe MAX (Plus, CS5.5 Contest!)

Have you heard of the Adobe MAX conference? Neither had I, but now I’m a believer in the cool things it had to offer (like “the biggest game of Angry Birds EVER”). Check out other awesome things from Adobe MAX and learn how you can win a free copy of Adobe CS5.5 Master Collection!

3.) Brazen Careerist: Are You the Shoulder-Shrugger or the Commitment-Keeper?

Are you the type of person who takes accountability for your obligations or who makes excuses when you fail to meet a deadline or forget to turn in an assignment? Find out what you can do if something falls through the cracks and you don’t want to forever be on the bad side of a boss or professor.

4.) Promote Your Personal Brand: Create a Website

Are you trying to get your name out there so potential employers know who you are and what you have to offer? Learn “why every college student should have a personal website to promote themselves” and how to go about creating one.

5.) TalkNerdy2Me: Give Me a Break!

One of the things that most college kids forget in the middle of a study session is that it’s important to take a few minutes to relax amid absorbing vast amounts of information. Check out ways to take a breather while still making sure you’re ready for that big exam tomorrow.
