I am a huge fan of t shirts and jeans.  I think it’s an easy look that anyone can pull  off, no matter your size, shape, or gender.  Just because you’re wearing a t-shirt doesn’t mean that it has to be a boring nothing look.  There are all kinds of shirts out there with fabulous artwork and unique cuts.

Go Back to School with Ivy Bridge College + $1000 Tuition Discount

I attended college way back in the stone age – the late 90s and early 2000s.  When I was in college, we didn’t have the option of attending classes online.  Oh no.  We had to actually get up, and get dressed, go to the campus, and sit there for hours upon hours.  And because I’m a glutton for punishment, and want to get on to bigger and better things. I would schedule all of my classes in one day. 

We would also need to go to the campus for everything that we needed.  Ready to register?  Down to the Registrar’s office and hope that there‘s still room in the classes you want or need.  Have a financial aid question?  Head over to the financial aid office.  Need your student ID?  Well, that’s taken care of at the Student Government office.  You could easily spend a whole ‘nother day running errands around the campus!

Mental Benefits of Music Lessons

 There are many ways a person can benefit from studying music. The benefits are both mental and spiritual, and many research projects show there is a correlation between the study of music and better performance in academics. If every parent were aware of the evidence, he or she would find the best music teacher available for their children.

 The Benefits to the Brain: Cognitive Development

 Students in high quality music classes score high on standardized tests. Playing an instrument enhances the brain stem’s sensitivity to speech sounds. Experiencing music at a young age can “fine tune” the auditory system according to Nature Neuroscience, April 2007.
