By the beginning of January, the annual Valentine’s Day craze has begun. It starts out slowly: a commercial here and there promoting sales at retail stores, or the best place to buy a box of chocolates without breaking the bank. Women in long-term relationships stare wistfully at engagement rings in store windows and drop hints to their significant others of where they’d like to go for dinner on Feb. 14.
If you have social media, you may have noticed the vast array of transformation pictures that have recently taken over Instagram and Facebook. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, a transformation picture is basically a before and after picture. People who are trying to lose weight normally take them to track their progress, and many people have taken to posting their own transformation pictures on their social media accounts.
Missy says... Do Even though it seems like a month is not a lot of time and you feel like you have to start preparing for next semester right away, it is important to use this time to relax and enjoy time at home with your friends and family.
It is that time of year – there are sales at all of your favorite stores and decorations are going up the minute the clock strikes 12 the day after Thanksgiving.
Make sure you stay focused. It is easy to lose track of your responsibilities because it is so close to the end of the semester but this is the most important part of the year.
