There is More to Social Media Than Just Finding Friends

By Jenna Moede

I know that social media helps us keep in touch with friends and family. In this crazy, military lifestyle that really feels like the most important aspect of social media.  

But, social media can help you with so much more!

I decided to take all the time that I had wasted mindlessly searching through old high school acquaintances and college friends and put it to use for a purpose. I knew a lot about social media because I studied public relations, but I didn’t realize just how many purposes it could serve. 

Reversing Sleep Debt

By Christine Cioppa

We all know that we need to get enough sleep. Precisely, 7-8 hours is needed for adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Besides creating some hefty dark eye circles, skimping on sleep can affect memory and increase the risk for certain chronic diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Sleep problems are also linked to heart disease and depression.

Student, Spouse, Employee – Take Time to Explore the Places the Military Sends You

By Jenna Moede

I know that I've mentioned this before, but when we first arrived in Cheyenne I didn't participate in the community. I also didn't know where to look to find events and activities. I felt bored after the initial excitement of a new place wore off.

Practice vs. Habit

By Amy Nielsen

Practice versus habit. That is the topic today. I recently started a yoga practice. I am also trying to stop the habit of smoking. Why is one called a practice and one called a habit? Why does one have a positive connotation and one negative? Can I change my habit with a different intention, a different word? Can I practice stopping smoking? Should yoga become a habit?

In exploring words lately, I realize that the intention behind the word is the key. So I went to look at the definition of practice and habit.

Enjoy Winter Break, Rather Than Stress Over Grades

By Jenna Moede

Winter break and the time for relaxing and resetting has finally arrived. I feel so excited for a break this year, and I can’t wait to re-energize for the New Year.  

During this time of year, as an undergrad student, getting the most out of my time off felt critical because I finally had a second to enjoy life without school. After my last final every semester, I sold my books and organized my notes that I would need later on in college. Once I had gone through my school stuff, I put everything away where I could forget about it.

Going LIVE!

By Amy Nielsen

So this is the week.

This is the week I go live with my first class offerings. I have finished writing it all out and posted the description on my page to advertise for my first class. I am in active negotiations for a space to hold my first class. I cannot believe it. It’s here!

Need to Learn How to Study? Here are Some Tips

By Jenna Moede

High school did not prepare me well for college, and I definitely didn’t know how to study. I went into college thinking I would just know what to do, but I quickly learned that I didn’t know nearly as much as I thought. 

I learned some ways to help me get by through a lot of trial and error.

Location, Location, Location

By Amy Nielsen

I got bitten by a crazy bug after having wild vivid dream a week or so ago. In that dream I saw my new studio space exactly as I want it. So I went looking for the space, the building and place I dreamt I was taking my new class in.
