Hang in There!

Hi Everyone!

I hope school is going great so far! If you are like me, you have tests coming up soon. I don’t normally drink coffee during the day, but it has become my best friend since I have three tests this week. I don’t have much advice for school except timed breaks are very important and setting goals in your studying will help you so much. Also, find a study buddy if you haven’t found one. They will help you so much!

If you are applying for DICAS, I also wish you luck. It is a process, but you can do it! Don’t forget to review your application and have your advisors help you too! They are there for a reason, and they want to see you succeed. You’re almost at the finish line; finish strong.

Valentine’s Day is also coming up. Whether you are going out with someone special, or getting a cupcake and relaxing (totally my plan), then I hope you have a good evening. Remember, dark chocolate is heart healthy, so treat yourself!

I do have some opportunities to share. If you are an Arkansas resident and a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, there are scholarships available! Applications are due on May 1st. Also, if you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior looking for an amazing volunteer opportunity that looks great on DICAS, then I encourage to apply to become a Student Liaison for the Arkansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. With this position, you promote the academy to many dietetic students across the state. You get to write blogs, which has been a new experience for me and I have learned so much. I have enjoyed writing to you all, and I hope that my advice has helped. This application is due on March 12th, so it is coming up! For more information, go to
