Sleep is something many college students lack, including myself. So I have come to learn how to get ready in ten minutes, resulting in me getting as much sleep as possible.

One of the first aspects that has helped me to do this is to have a stockpile of sport leggings. Let’s face it, jeans suck, and regular cotton leggings always seem to be see through. So, to avoid both of these things I have invested in at least ten pairs of athletic leggings.


    Now, I do not want to look like a zombie all the time, so I do make time to do just a tad bit of makeup to look more awake and not look like a little boy. Highlighter is a must. It instantly brightens your eyes and adds a glow to your skin. I apply highlight to the corners of my eyes, top of my cheek bones, and tip of my nose. After this I apply  mascara to my top and bottom lashes. Besides chapstick throughout the day, that is it for my makeup.

So, if you want as much sleep as you can get, and not look like a total bum everyday, follow these simple steps. Additionally, when you actually get dressed up to go out on the weekends, you will look like a model compared to how you usually look!


•Not quite sure what I want to do when I “grow up” yet, but I’m enjoying the road to that destination. I know I want to help others in whatever career I choose. Whether that be in the psychology field, nutrition or fitness field , I know what I’m passionate about just on a quest to find what fits that mold for me. •My voice being heard and hearing the voices of others is something very important to me. •Being outdoors and enjoying all seasons is my go to.
Meet Bianca, I am currently a Junior at Utica College in Utica, NY.  I am a Criminal Justice major with a concentration in Homeland Security.  Crime investigation has always been something that interests me.  I’m dedicated and passionate and it’s hard for me to quit things. I get that from my father so don’t hold it against me- he was a veteran and police officer for 20 years.   Growing up in a family centered around law enforcement has helped guide me in this direction, and I will forever be grateful.  After graduation I intend to continue on to law school where I can further my education in hopes of becoming a criminal defense lawyer and later on a District Attorney.  An interesting fact about myself is that I found the passion to be a criminal defense lawyer from watching the O.J. Simpson case.  The facts and conspiracy theories evoked a whole new passion behind criminal investigation that I intend to use in my future.  One of my most prominent moments in my writing career was when I wrote for an online magazine and had my most prevalent article hit 1.6k shares.  I believe in treating people with the same kind of respect and manners you would expect in return, and in a way it has helped shaped my expectations in life.   When you first meet me I won’t be the loudest in the room or the center of attention, but I will be intently listening to everything you say, for what you have to say may have a purpose. I believe in purpose. I believe that everyone is here to help you grow into who you are today and who you will be tomorrow.
