    In part one of “How to Become a Straight-A Student” by Cal Newport the main of this story is how to not to work and study for twelve hours straight, to show how to manage your time doing some simple things and help you avoid the urge of procrastination. The five ideas that resonated with me was making a “To Do List” and a “Things to Remember Column”, to feed my body with nutrients, tell others of your work and go to an area where there is no one you know, plan the hard days in advance, and to study at least an hour straight and to rest from time to time. Making a to do list resonated with me because it showed how easy your day can be with this idea. Just like in the story of Stephen, Newport said that “Stephen was able to really relax and have a good time at night.”(Newport, ) This stood out to me as a reader because it showed that the list actually worked for someone and that it might work for me. This idea connected with me because it is something so simple and it will make everything easier for me in my daily life for me to get everything in order. What I will do to emulate this idea in my life is to make a to do list in a journal that I have and to make a things to remember list and to use it every day. Try to make this list a part of my daily life. Feeding myself with nutrients was another idea that resonated with me because it is something that has to do with eating and I do like eating. This stood out to me as a reader because things that we do daily will…

    Could you ever imagine waking up one day and everything was different? Not being able to be sprawled out in your perfectly good bed each morning, but waking up in various locations for protection. Having to carry some sort of weapon every time you go outside just in case you run into a pack of zombies looking for fresh flesh. This all seemed too much and it was only my first year at Missouri State. A zombie apocalypse was not something I expected from college, especially to be one of the few…

    Unfortunately, about 41,000 people every year do not get to share the privilege with me of saying that they beat depression and suicide. They tragically cut their lives short for a plethora of different reasons. Perhaps they face persecution for being a member of the LGBT community or they feel that they are failing in school or their job and they see no way out. For me, I felt alone and isolated. Luckily, though, I made it through the darkest tunnel, and now I see nothing but a glowing future…

    Jimmy Dean once said, “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination” (Jimmy Dean Quotes). Not many end a quest feeling the same way as they did when they started; a traveler can have a whole new mindset after finishing their journey. Both Salak and Odysseus endured life-altering journeys; journeys in which they both had to do exactly what Jimmy Dean said. The Odyssey is a story of the war hero Odysseus’s crazy journey to Ithaca after helping…
