When students are stressed out, falling behind, or already behind, they often get wrapped up in blame. It is either their fault for not having done it right in the first place, their graders’ fault for assigning too much or changing something, their managers’ fault for assigning too many hours or inconvenient shifts, maybe their friends or family or the cat or their favorite show or the weather.
It turns out that whether that blame is accurately assessed or utterly erroneous, it is usually a waste of time. Inaccurate assessments are obviously useless, but even accurate ones are better left to the academic off-season. That is a good time to reassess your time management or realize that perhaps a certain class or professor is not for you.
Put the blame aside. Is that hard to do? Yes. If it weren’t, we’d all do it. If it were easy, you’d have already done it. But, it’s time to start practicing. Focus on what you can do now. Quickly, do not labor over this, make a list of the assignments you need to do and note how long each will take. Do not include reading in the list just yet. Now, put the assignments into your schedule.
Chances are you will have more time than you thought. If not, consider a company like PowerPapers.com to help you by taking on an assignment or two.
Some of your reading may be required rather than supportive, for example for a test. Consider how much time you actually need to spend on those, and then schedule those, too. This is often where a student’s schedule breaks down. Even those who can cover all of their written assignments may have trouble including all of their reading, too. If you find yourself out of time, this is another time where hiring outside help might be the answer.
Some may wonder why you are obsessed with scary, creepy, or otherwise unpleasant television, but we here at PowerPapers.com central are with you. Watching people melting, being mummified, or enduring other supernatural horrors is a nice break from the thinking too much about how much midterms and finals suck.
Sure, you have to read 200+ pages and write another 15+ as of the day before yesterday, but at least you are not being shanked by a supernatural reincarnation of Jack the Ripper. If Ichabod and Abbie are finding love among those ruins, then you can probably hold it together and get through another paper or three.
Just like Team Witness uses outside help, so can you. PowerPapers.com is here to help pick up the slack or to help you weave a new rope after yours broke. By outsourcing a writing project, speech, or presentation to us, you free up time to do the reading and studying necessary for exams, to sleep, or to work.
Whether you need to you need us to take on something big or to pick up some of the small pieces, we can help. Work, family, even things like taking the time to eat right and squeeze in a workout, can seem or even be impossible during this point in the school year. Sometimes, taking care of yourself is more important than writing four more replies to your fellow students’ comments on the Jacksonian model of government.
You can place an order here. If you have questions, you can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A living wage is the concept that businesses that function in a given area should pay workers at a rate that enables them to live, i.e. rent a single bedroom home, pay for transportation, and buy food, in that community.
Here are some of the reasons that people are advocating for a living wage:

The nice part of being in school right now is that you do not have the time or energy to waste looking into election coverage too closely. Here is something to consider, though: some of the same things that can make you a better student and writer will make you a better voter.
Knowing politicians' platforms and intentions is important, but in order to do that you need to be able distinguish good information from bad information. Here are some hints:
Being able to tell good information from bad is key for any student or voter. People like information that agrees with their opinions. Often, we think that if we accept a particular fact, we have to change our opinion. The downside of this is that we often become liars to protect an idea or opinion.
For example, decades of research show that no matter how you slice it, women have fewer car accidents than men do. Some sexists are so attached to the idea that must be superior, they pretend this fact is simply not true and they create tangled stories or paranoid fantasies about why the truth is not true.
Good information comes from reliable sources. Most peer reviewed articles and newspapers like The New York Times are more reliable sources.
Good information states narrow facts. “Women have fewer traffic accidents and get fewer tickets,” not “All men are terrible drivers.”
Headlines always lie, or at least overstate. Even in high quality, reliable news sources, the headlines are usually dishonest and sometimes outright lies. (There is usually a distinct department that headlines news stories.) It is best to ignore the headline entirely for content.
