Let’s Get Down to Business [Ready U Conquer This List]

Roughing It For Front Row [ReadyU Conquer This List]

During this fabulous spring/summer music festival season, I am busy transitioning into post-college life. That means scrambling to get all the pieces of my life in place, and working to pay my rent. So, no Coachella, Sasquatch, or Governors Ball for me.

It’s Time to Unplug! [Ready U Conquer This]

What if I decided not to be plugged in for an extended period of time? What if I just lived in the present moment, looked at the world through my own two eyes instead of my iPhone screen while I snapped a picture that I would soon put a filter on with the hashtag “#instawow”?

Find a New Way to Sweat Off the Freshman 15 [ReadyU Conquer This List]

n fact, the "freshman 15" as we tend to think of it doesn't really exist. Instead, people often gain weight slowly throughout college, so it's important to stay creative with your exercise routine for all four years – after all, with so much stress and the weird diet that comes along with late-night study sessions, staying in shape during college can be tough.

Get In The Spotlight! [ReadyU’s Conquer This List]

I would rather do 100 other things than give a school presentation or sing a song at an open mic night. The knots in my stomach tighten, my voice shakes, and I race through what I’m saying just to get it all over with. To be perfectly honest, I hate attention.

Getting Lost…In Central Park [ReadyU Conquer This List]

One of the beautiful things about New York is that it's really like hundreds of cities in one. Each neighborhood is so unique, and no matter how well you think you know the city, you can always find something new.

Reduce Your Resume [Ready U Conquer This List]

We volunteer, we intern, we make the Dean’s List—all because we want to build the perfect resume that will impress potential employers. And this is great! It’s important to keep your future on your mind while you’re enjoying college life. If we just party our way through college with nothing real to show for it, you’re not going to have much to write on that resume besides, “Couch Potato Champion.”

Wear Anything But Clothes [ReadyU Conquer This List]

Fact: at my school, we have to pass a swim test to graduate. No, I did not make that up and yes, it's weird. What's even weirder is that the students in the engineering school don't have to take the test, apparently because they'd be able to build themselves a boat (at least that's what everyone says).

Do What’s Proper [ReadyU Conquer This List]

I love to cook, and when I'm at school I miss having a real kitchen. You know, a kitchen that's stocked with everything you need, is clean, and has plenty of counter space. Not a cramped, dirty kitchen that you share with a bunch of other college students and that may or may not be growing toxic mold. And by “may or may not”, I mean definitely.
