It’s midterm time, aka, a good time to get shit together.  If you are anything like me – this is not an easy task. I often find that by the middle of the semester I feel like I am constantly being pulled in a million different directions WHICH usually means – I don’t actually end up going in any direction. This is not exactly the best state of mind to be in the night before you have a test that is 30 percent of your  grade.

So my gift to you (and myself) is a place where you can hopefully find some focus. At least I think some of these tips have helped me. They may seem a bit like common sense or redundant, but one of the tips, “create a place by the door,” has helped me. I used to just throw my lanyard with my keys somewhere in the clutter of my desk. Now, I’ve found that I can save a lot of time that would have been spent digging though papers on my desk by hanging my lanyard on a hook by my dorm door.

Even though this article may seem as if it’s aimed at middle aged women, I think that pretty much anyone can benefit from these tips. If you don’t believe me, see for yourself. I dare you to try one. I mean, even if reading this takes time away from your studying, it’s probably more productive than Facebook and/or Twitter.

Where Cool Things Happen” could also be called, “A Perfect Stumbles.” There is just something about these bizarre but spectacular shots that will catch your interest for some time.

This site includes 15 Perfectly Timed Photos that are almost too coincidental to be true.  These photographers must have been pretty dedicated; or they must have really good timing. No need for photo-shopping with these. I bet Lady Gaga and some other commonly photo-shopped starts are a bit jealous.

So if your bored, why not use your cell phone for something other than angry birds and try to snap some shots like these?

Or you could check out the CoolFoods category and prepare an Aurora Borealis Glow in the Dark Cocktail.

You can also check out some interesting places to have dinner…like a restaurant in a waterfall.

Some interesting gadgets on the market now and coming out soon, may also catch your eye. Take this literally and check out  these glasses that send you social media updates in the corner of your vision while you are wearing them (and that’s not all…)

There are plenty of other interesting categories, such as cooltransit (with an air-powered car), coolart, coolstays (hotels and other vacation destinations), and cooladvertisements.

Despite the corny category names, I’d say most of the stuff in these categories is legit cool. But don’t take my word for it; Stumble upon it for yourself.

Want a workout that can give you abs in 10 seconds?

So do I, but this one does take a little more time. However, you only need to hold each pose for 5- 10 counts and do three repositions of each.

Oh and there are only five moves. I’m pretty bad at math, but it seems like that’s a pretty speedy way to get a core. For those of you who are even worse at math than me (although part of me doesn’t think you exist) this workout is 90 seconds max.

I also actually think it works because I’ve done a couple of the moves sporadically on my own for longer sets and seen some results.

One more plug for this workout- it’s yoga so you can get abs while you’re distressing. I’d say this is one of those workouts you want to make time for  and the good news is – it’s not even that much time.

Oh, by the way. I also stumbled upon (see what I did there) these while roaming the internet. If these can’t get your boy’s interest, I don’t know what will.

The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don’t have. 

I couldn’t agree with these more—and that there is a list that has been made to spell it out to the fellas out there. Okay, some skills like “run rapids in a canoe ,” and “tackle steep drops on a mountain bike,” may be a bit extreme (although I am not going to argue with any man who has those skills), for the most part I think these skills will come in handy (even though I am not a guy, I’ve had a couple in my life so I think I have an idea). I think that woman should also have most of these skills too, honestly, so we can help the guys who don’t take a look at this list.
