Dealing with the death of a loved one while at college can be extremely overwhelming. It’s not one of the topics that come up when preparing for school, especially when worrying about ACT and SAT prep, getting college applications in, and asking for letters of recommendations. But for many college students it’s something they will probably experience at least once, in their four years at school.
Of course, there’s always the running joke in the dorms that if your roommate dies you’d get an automatic A for the whole semester, but it’s not a joke. It’s actually true. If your roommate were to die you would be given As, because the school is trying to help relieve some of the stress that would occur because of the trauma.
Because death is stressful, heart wrenching, unfair, and, when it’s someone close to you, it’s devastating, so much so that you might want to leave school. And that’s okay, because you have to do what’s best for you as a person before you can thrive as a student.
So how do you prepare for losing loved ones in college? In truth you honestly can’t. The only thing you can do is handle the aftermath. But, in the end, it comes down to communication. If you lose a loved one while at college, whether it be a friend, or family member, tell your professors what is going on. Most professors actually want you to do well in their class and will help work with you, so you can pass while you work through this tough time in your life. -
Talk to a friend or roommate, call your parents, go to a counselor, or confide in a fur friend, just tell someone, you’d be surprised how much better you’ll feel just to talk about them. But whatever you do, don’t bottle up the pain. If you do, it will be that much harder to move forward, and college is hard enough as it is.
With that I dedicate this to Leo, the greatest friend I’ve ever had.

I think education is in a paradigm shift, and that our perception of education is to be completely thrown over. .
The concept of being educated today somewhat requires that you’ve been through formal education. I think the two have nothing to do with each other. .

How do you memorise information that you need to remember?
If you go around the room and ask a handful of people how they memorise and remember things quickly, most of them will probably say they do so by repeating. This is the polar opposite to the optimal way we should learn.
If you want to memorise something quickly and thoroughly, repetition won’t help much. However, recalling it will.
Here at Genius in 21 Days, not only will we teach you how to memorise any kind of information instantly, but we’ll also show you how to remember it in the long-term so it will remain in your mind, even for forever if you want it to, like ink on paper instead of using a pencil!
