The joy of back to school  has now come to an end and it is slowly being replaced by the dreaded stress of mid-terms. Your work load is alarmingly getting heavier, your days ironically seem to be getting shorter, and you're trying really hard not to lose your mind because exams are important. School is important. Doing good is important. Doing your very best is what's most important, no matter the outcome.

What helps us keep our cool during mid-terms is to have a game plan. A solid game plan that will keep us from stressing out over not knowing how to go about studying for four exams in three days. Though the initial plan might change, it is nice to know there's a guideline to help you keep track of what you need to get done. 

These are a great way to start planning especially if you're someone who needs to write things down. They're great for hanging up on your bedroom walls to make sure you're always on top of your game. You can also keep them in a binder and have them on the go! 

Here are a few links to satisfy all your printable needs!



Your technological device can be your bestest friend during exam period. If you use it wisely. There are a bunch of free apps out there that could be helpful for you! Here are some of our favourites! 

30/30 - A great time and task manager. Keep your brain focused and stimulated by putting in selected tasks and setting a time for each. Once one task is done, it moves on to the next! I also suggest you follow the Pomodoro technique!  (ANDROID)

Quizlet - The holy grail of studying alone. Create your own flashcards and have a look at other people's! You are able to quiz yourself and turn your flashcards into exams or fun interactive games to help you memorize your class material. It might take a while to make the flashcards but it's definitely worth it! You can also review the flashcards offline, which makes it easy to do wherever and whenever. (WEBSITE) | (ANDROID)

My Study Life - A great planner for your phone! Pretty self-explanatory but what I love most is that you can set up alarms to remind you of your task which is something I always make sure to do. (WEBSITE) | (ANDROID)

Cite This For Me - My life saver. I will forever be thankful for whoever is behind this genius website because it has saved me a lot of blood sweat and tears. Say goodbye to losing points for incorrect references!! The websites also check references so there's no way for you to be accused of plagiarism. 

Try to think ahead of time and prepare some quick snacks that you will thank yourself for later. There is never a good reason to skip a meal. If you really are on a time crunch, make sure to snack every few hours. Nuts, fruits, vegetables and great snack! Also make sure you drink enough liquids during the day; whether it be juice, water, tea or coffee. Stay hydrated!!

Energy Ballz - Easy and delicious for a snack or breakfast! You can also replace the cranberries for chocolate chips. 

15 Meals Under 15 Minutes - Buzzfeed will never let you down. 

Banana Pancakes - Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea. It's also an easy way to incorporate some fruit into your meal! 

Open-Faced Enchiladas - My go-to meal when i'm in a hurry. You can use whatever you have in your fridge and pantry!
