Okay, so term projects are among us, finals are around the corner, and you’re having trouble managing your time. You should be working on a paper, but somehow you keep that Buzzfeed tab open on your browser. You know you can’t cite those never ending listicles that are so relevant to your college life (#howdotheyknow?!). However, you have the will power to close that window and get your life together. Head on down to the library and check out these very helpful, super un-cheesy, get-it-together, self-help books.
The Skinny on Time Management; 640.43 RAN
This handbook on time management shows stick figure illustrations and uses a comic strip style to make it a fun, easy, and relatable read. It features easy tips and tricks on how to get the most out of your 24 hours. So if ever you feel that there aren’t enough hours in the day, The Skinny on Time Management will teach you how to utilize the hours you DO have.
Generation WTF; 646.700842 WHE
Generation WTF is probably one of the most helpful books to own as a college student. The author Christine Whelan has been studying self-help books for years and took elements of each best-selling book and tweaked it for the millennial reader. Generation WTF is jammed packed with tips, worksheets, graphs, and even has an online support system. There is feedback from actual students who have used some of these tips in real life situations. Definitely a must have for your bookshelf even if it’s just for a month.
So conquer those papers, attack those inspiration boards, go hard on those PowerPoint presentations, and work ahead of time on those group projects! Hang in there! You got this! You’re gonna be okay! Don’t forget to set appointments with librarians if you’re having trouble with research topics or just need assistance with databases and citations. They’re here to help and they’re happy to help!
