The rising popularity of eBooks in recent years has encouraged the debate: "Paperbacks vs eBooks". While both have their pros and cons, the final decision is ultimately up to you to decide which is more suited towards your lifestyle. If you're an avid reader, then you've definitely asked yourself the question "Am I cheating on my paperback books if I buy ebooks?"

If you've ever been a student, then you know how hard it is to achieve a balance between school and your personal life, especially as you get older. It's something that all students struggle with some time during their education, and it's something that we all had to figure out. Some students really enjoy learning and going to school, but for many of us, it's a chore to do homework and complete the necessary study every week. There are . . .
Have you ever thought about where your clothing originates from? Ever considered buying pre-loved items?

(but that's a post for another day) This post is all about school organisation, specifically how to get organised for school with diaries and planners. Most students look for three things in . . .
Why do we call them New Year's Resolutions? Is it just because we set them at the beginning of a new year? Or perhaps because that's the only way we'll be motivated to set them? I'm trying to be more honest with myself and I know that I most likely won't complete those that I call New Year's Resolutions so this year, I'm calling them 'Goals that I won't berate myself for not completing this year'. Focusing the year on self. We get so . . .
Time. It flies by fast, doesn't it? It seems like it was only yesterday that I was still in high school, a fresh-faced student, eager and ready to learn. That was six years ago. Now, I'm a high school graduate, having completed another stage of my life and ready to step into the next one. This year was not easy for me.
