My Favorite Trader Joeโ€™s Snacks for watching the Super Bowl! โœจ๐Ÿˆ

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back to a new post, and for this week, I’ll be showing you some of my favorite Trader Joe’s snacks for curling up on the couch Sunday! So without further ado, let’s get started ๐Ÿ™‚

Mini Chicken Tacos ๐ŸŒฎ

These are literally the cutest tacos I’ve ever eaten, I mean they are hamster-size (and also perfect for snacking on!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Cinnamon School House Cookies

These aren’t your average cookies! They are super tasty and addicting (be aware) and they are definitely a favorite ๐Ÿ˜›

Yogurt-Covered Pretzels

Oh my these are the bomb.com! If you like things that are sweet and salty, I would try these, but they do fill you up quite fast.

Pita Crackers and Brie Bites

Combining these two iconic snacks makes the best duo! The pita crackers are super light and can taste good with basically anything you pair, and the brie is just mouth-watering ๐Ÿคค

Corn Puffs

These are super tasty and airy, and the cheese flavor tastes more natural than artificial ๐Ÿ™‚

Mini Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches ๐Ÿฅช

Talk about mouth-watering! These are super delicious; they are basically Oreos stuffed with mint ice cream ๐Ÿฆ

Dark-Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

You may have had normal chocolate peanut butter cups, but these are off the charts good ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Peanut-Butter-Filled Pretzel Bites

If you like peanut butter, you’ll love these. The inside is creamy and soft, while the outside salty and crunchy ๐Ÿ˜‹

The Art of Studying + School-Work Tips and Tricks! โœจโœจ๐ŸŒฟ

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back, and for this week’s marvelous post I decided I would share some helpful study life hacks, tips, etc. Now, without further ado, let’s get started!

1. GET ORGANIZED!

This is key to studying because it helps keep a clear mind set and makes you feel in control and not stressed. What I mean by this is keeping track of all the tests and quizzes you have to study for by making lists. Make it fun as well! Draw some doodles, write it in hand lettering, basically whatever floats your boat. Remember to also work in a clean space that is sure to not to distract you. Preferably somewhere calm, maybe even outside.

2. R e s o u r c e s.

Here are some of my favorite apps, websites, etc. to help bolster your test knowledge ๐Ÿ™‚

Tinycards

This is a website + app made by the one and only Duolingo! On it you can make your own flash cards and study ones other people have made! You can take practice quizzes on them and there are individual lessons that help you learn the cards! There is a variety of settings where you can just study the front or back of the cards and not do the typing part. If you have any questions feel free to comment them below!

Quizlet

Quizlet is a super helpful site where, similar to tinycards, you can make flash cards to study, but there are many cool features and different games you can play to learn the information which makes it fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Google

I know a lot of schools use google to help with class work but the different options you have can be super helpful, for example using google forms to make practice quizzes! Google docs is also great for making to-do lists!

Paper and a Pencil

Sometimes the best way to learn is one of the simplest! You can make yourself study spread sheets and other fun projects to almost connect exhilarating art projects to your homework to make it more interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, remember to use the internet as a resource and gather knowledge to avail yourself of a fresh study guide! Doing the research can also help you learn more about the topic than you had already known before!

3. Procrastination

Here is the main helping point on helping how to get past “I’ll do it later.”

Put away distractions (!!)

Making sure any devices other than the ones you are using to help study are put away, and like I said before, find a space where there is nothing to pull you away from your work. Make sure to make the work first priority and get everything done early so you don’t have to worry about it later.

4. Stressed?

Work can be hard, and you have to make sure you don’t bite off more than you can swallow, so here is some ways to relieve some stress.

Take breaks.

By this I mean before you start any work, take some deep breaths, go for a jog around the house, have a quick snack, or take a mental break. If you are tense while starting work you are more likely to feel pressured. Something I like to do is use the Calm.com app. They have a selection of de-stressing activities; the ones I like to use are the college ones because one of them is a 3 minute study break which I find very relaxing.

Time Management

When you become good at managing your time it helps take a burden off your shoulders because it makes sure that you aren’t doing all your work at one time. I would suggest making schedules and lists of when each thing should get done, and make sure to keep an eye on future work coming up so you don’t not have something done.

5. Note-Taking Techniques ๐Ÿ™‚

STICKY NOTES.

Over the years, these have been my saviors for taking some sudden class notes :,) I love using these to take notes, and place them on my binders and notebooks! Also, if you are more of an online note taker there is a sticky-note app from Post It where you can make your sticky notes and put them into boards and other cool stuff!

NOTEBOOKS!

I would suggest keeping around one extra notebook for putting sticky notes in, writing down homework, and writing class notes! Make it something you can just pull out in case of need so you can write down quickly and get back to class! Sometimes the day before a test, I will make myself a mini study sheet in class while taking notes. Also, remember these are just suggestions so you don’t have to stress if something isn’t really up your alley.

Snow-Day Movie Night! โœจโœจโ˜ƒ๏ธ

Hey guys, it’s Morgan! Welcome back to a new, fresh, and funky post! Today I will be showing you some lively snow-day activities. Without further ado, let’s get started!

1. A c t i o n.

Movies are always a good way to spend snow days, warm and cozy. Here are some of my favorites that I would highly suggest trying out!

The Princess Bride

This movie is an oldie but a goodie! If you like action and adventure, this movie is for you! Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!

Hidden Figures

If you like more Non-Fiction based movies, then I would definitely watch this one. Usually movies based off of the books aren’t any good, but trust me, you won’t regret watching this one!

Groundhog Day

Definitely one of my favorite movies that Bill Murray plays in. Prepare to laugh!

Zootopia

100% one of my favorite Disney movies of all time, I mean really, who doesn’t love watching these!

Indiana Jones- Raiders of the Lost Ark

If you haven’t seen any Indiana Jones movies I would really try watching at least one! This is my favorite out of the series but the rest are equally exciting!

Star Wars- The Empire Strikes Back

Again, this is my favorite of the series but Return of the Jedi is a close second!

The Karate Kid

I don’t know many people who haven’t seen this, but if you are one of those people, this is a must-watch!

Gremlins

This is one of my favorites on the list! The gremlins are actually so cute though >:D

2. P o p c o r n.

Here’s how to make a DIY popcorn mix!

First get yourself some popcorn! It can be buttered, salted, basically anything that floats your boat!

Then get some savory add-ins! Here are some suggestions-

  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Sun Chips
  • Doritos
  • Cheetos
  • Chex Mix

Finally, get some sweet add-ins! Get something along the lines of-

  • M&M’s
  • Peanut Butter Cups
  • Andes mint candies

Basically, anything chocolate!

You can also drizzle caramel and/or melted chocolate over your popcorn master piece!

3. BAKERS GONNA BAKE!

Yum :p Even if you are not a popcorn person, you can still enjoy some delicious baked goods! Here are some tasty treats that will make your mouth water while snuggled up on the couch!

Chocolate-Covered Cookie Dough

Giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup

Mint Chip Cookies

S’mores Dip

DIY Rolled Ice Cream

4. BOARD GAMES!

If you are as competitive as I am, you would know how much fun board games are! Here are some of my favorites because no movie night is complete without board games!

Scrabble

  • If you are a book-lover like me I would try this game!

Uno

  • One of my favorite card games! This is a super-fun family game ๐Ÿ™‚

Monopoly

  • A classic, but definitely a favorite!

Pit

  • A super-fun trading card game! Very fun for playing with the family ๐Ÿ™‚

Life

  • I love this game very much and is soooo fun to play.
