Hygiene: Important or Not?

In society today appearance is everything; ever heard of the quote "Don't judge a book by its cover?" Nowadays, society is forced to look at someone and come up with the notion of who the person is and where they're from. Good thing, as students we have mastered the art of taking care of ourselves and our appearance. The art of “Hygiene.”

Hygiene is the quintessential must for a healthy body; maintaining it in your everyday life will most importantly prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Many people are very conscious of their hygiene; it is what will help in the process of others judging your book by your cover (majorly). The better we're presented the more assured we are of showing an image that reflects our personalities. With bad hygiene, let's just say you won't want to experience it.

Hygiene is what can make or break a person; as students, though it's easy to wake up fifteen minutes before class and throw on yesterday’s outfit, it’s important to look somewhat decent. You don't know who will end up as the class guest speaker while you’re sitting in a pair of torn up dirty jeans and yesterday’s underwear. Of course, smelling good comes along side hygiene and is a must. You can't impress someone with nasty smelling breath, and an odor coming from your body; wear a welcoming scent as to not scare people away. Grooming, just like smelling good will help on your approach. Growing out a month full of facial hair without the proper grooming will have more running away from you then getting close to you. Long Story short, Hygiene is a MUST!

The Secret to Spending is, Saving

Right now, the majority of you students have spent your time on the internet searching for money saving deals because you’ve “lavishly” spent the money your parents have constantly told you to save. I say “lavishly” because we all know we search our rooms finding items we have no clue the reason it has been bought. Don’t worry, you’re not alone; I sit here as the “starving college student” and writing about the one thing my parents tell me not to do, “spend my money.”

New York City has tons to offer, whether it be a tour of the fine city itself or hole in the wall eateries that happen to be the greatest kept secret to many. As a student living and going to school in New York, it’s necessary to save much more than I spend. Either I spend my money for snacks to keep me up during class or more money to spend for textbooks; the majority of my hard earned savings will be spent all the years while in school. Doesn’t matter where you’re from or how you’re living, New York will suck the money right out of your pockets. Just one poof and the money you just received from your first paycheck is half way done. Because I tend to find myself spending more than I save, I’m here to help you save more than you spend.

Beyond schooling, there’s also a separate life; that being my social “activity” life. There’s no place better than realizing there’s life outside the burden of papers, and tests every other week. Just like every college student going on a quest through the internet and magazine for activities to do, I have done the same. This social “activity” life helps me save my money while having fun in the process. What many students don’t understand is, as large as New York may be, it offers a massive amount of discounts and free activities for you and your friends to enjoy. With loads of discounted and free things to do, I’m here to gossip about the city’s best kept secrets.

Now as students are learning to save, companies and magazines are coming out with ways to not only get them noticed but to help us in our money saving “process.” One magazine I love to look at that helps ease my pockets is, “Time Out New York” magazine, a magazine that comes out at least twice a month and is a great buy. With topics such as: “Best free events in the city”, “giveaways” “cheap eateries”, “this week’s offers” and more, they’re sure to give you anything to enjoy in the city for less.

Websites such as specifically a ticket based website, offers New York City dwellers free and discounted tickets to places such as: basketball games, plays, musicals, concerts, etc. Let’s not forgot our trusted friend Google, the most searched website will help save you if no one else will. Just type in keywords such as: “free in the city”, “discount events” and you’ll be sure to find whatever it is you’d like to do. So what better way is there to enjoy the beautiful city of New York than to do so with a friend and at a fraction of the original cost.

If you like to eat out as much as I do, how about you stroll your way down to “Ballaro.” Campus Clipper has a special coupon for the caffe prosciutteria, 20% OFF Dinner and 10% OFF all the time, with the coupon and student ID in hand. Nothing better than to save the money in your pocket and eat in the process. Hurry and check it out!

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to me! It's been over a year of neglect on my blog and I'm ready to come back. A lot has happened in between these months and a lot will continue to happen. I missed having someplace to write and decided I'm writing to continue what I've started. Still fairly new to the blogging "world" so bare with me. I'll try not to be as corny and be somewhat entertaining. Soo, I'm giving myself a warm welcome....WELCOME! :P (the corniness has began.)
