This quarter seems like finals are spread out over the final two weeks of the quarter. There is an overwhelming amount of work to be done in preparation for finals.
As a result, there is also a great deal of stress. Just think I am juggling two classes and a full-time job. So there is going to be some stress involved there. I think I even noticed a few more grey hairs.
So, how is one supposed to manage and deal with this kind of stress. Well, one way that used to help me deal with stress and test anxiety was to smoke a cigarette before the actual test (I know, I know, this is a terrible habit, but I would only smoke one before the test and throw the rest of the pack out). However, since RMU became a smoke free facility, there goes that method of stress relief.
So, I looked into another method and decided to try Yoga. Yoga proved to be quite frustrating and I think caused more stress. The transitioning from Warrior pose 1 to downward dog is quite difficult. I lost my balance a few times and fell over. I now have a few bruises on my elbow and ego. Hence I quickly abandoned that method.
Currently, I have yet to find a method for stress relief. I will just have to employ deep breathing methods to get me by.
I wish everyone good luck on their finals! Stay tuned for upcoming events from the Morris Women!

International Women's Day
March 8th is celebrated as International Women’s Day across the world. The day has historical roots dating back into the early 1900’s. The tradition was usually celebrated on the last Sunday in February. It was a day filled with protests for the women’s movement towards rights and liberation. As time went on other countries adopted the tradition to promote movements that were important to women and their country. Today, the tradition of celebrating International Women’s Day continues and has spread to several countries including those in the middle east where women are denied basic rights such a voting and being independent.
One day should not be the only day that we bring recognition to the women who made a difference in the world and fought for women’s rights and liberties. We should embrace those liberties like voting, holding public office, and the privilege to drive. Yes, being able to drive is considered a privilege. I recently read an article that stated that some countries prohibit women from driving cars. Women caught driving can suffer punishment that may include imprisonment.
So during the week of March 8th, we celebrate the women that made a difference in the world, but we should also celebrate the women who make a difference in our everyday lives.
Who are some of the women who you look up to or have been influential in your life? You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to weigh in or join Morris Women on the LinkedIn group to add a comment.

A customary Sunday pastime in February, besides the Super bowl, is the Oscars. I always try to catch the Oscars, despite having other things to do, like homework and blogging. I love to watch Hollywood and all the glitz and glamour that make the Oscars entertaining. The fashions on the red carpet, which famous designer are the actors or actresses wearing, the expensive jewels that sparkle and shine, and the magic that makes Hollywood. I am not the only one who shares this fascination and interest in the Oscars. All over the city of Chicago, bars and homes are hosting Oscar parties. Attendees can dress in formal wear just like the real red carpet. This Sunday night, I am watching the Oscars with family (and no formal wear, just PJ’s).
