Three for Thursday - 3 More of My Favorite Things for Your Balancing Act

It is Thursday, which means you need to remind yourself again:

Success requires balance.

So here are this week's three things for your balancing act:

1.  Pinterest -  Hopefully, most of you have already stumbled upon this awesome site. If not, here is the gist - you get to make collages - which I recommend for goal-setting - and are able to essentially click, or pin, anything that catches your fancy online. I have loved it so far - and to my surprise - it has actually been a tool to get to know a few people in a more complete way. Also, different college organizations, like NSCS, actually have their own Pinterest accounts that you can follow.

2. Playlists that never get old - Music is inherently emotional - and is one of those things that sometimes can get me moving when it comes to a project or something that I am dreading to do. I am a well-documented Taylor Swift enthusiast - so today on the ride home from a trip to my state's capitol for my job, I revisited my favorite playlist of her songs for the long ride home. This might sound cheesy - sometimes cheesy things are true - but, don't be afraid to revisit a playlist that puts you in a good mood when you feel overworked, stressed out, or just want to unwind. The tonal quality of music might be all you need to kick things into gear.

3. - I don't know much about this site, but a friend recommended it to me this week, so I am going to give it a look. The premise is that it is essentially a site for you to suggest books to friends. I am a big proponent of everyone cutting out time in their schedule to read, regardless of how much they like or dislike doing so. If you have some free time on the computer, take a look at GoodReads, let me know what you think. I am always looking for nonfiction (and a few brain candy) titles to read - let's link up and we can recommend a few titles to each other :)

I hope your week is going fantastic! If you haven't, take a look at this week's study tips - these will be a new feature for the site this year running on Tuesdays.

Let's be friends.
