Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

As a new intern and college student, I know that I will expect days in which I have to stay very late to finish a homework, or days when sometimes, I must not say anything because maybe I am not sure of what I am about to say is the right thing. Even, when I am done with an english essay I am afraid to turn it in, because I know that my writing is not perfect. Those types of expectations started when I started college and this internship, but the truth is that it doesn't have to be that way.College is a complete different environment from high school, and is the part of your life in which a person must grow up, but it is also can be the best part of your life if a girl promises to do this 5 steps in an internship or in school. Girls, you must take your beauty sleep. Sleeping, just like eating, is the most important time of your day, remember that the body needs it rest, it needs to charge. So it is not worth it to stay all night because you need to study for that final exam. Take time before the exam to revise your notes, or prepare yourself during that week. Everyone wants to be successful, and there will be a time in your life in which you will face competition, and being ambitions can be a good thing. But in life, there is a time where a person becomes extremely ambitions that this person doesn't care to betray someone to be successful, and get what this person wants. It is completely wrong!!  Promise to yourself that you won't step in somebody else shoes or stab them in the back to become successful. Trust is one of the most important values, and it makes you a terrible person when you betray your friend. Trust your instincts, this is probably one of the hardest things to do, but sometimes your should follow it, because you might be right about them. So, do not be afraid to speak up your mind. Do not pursue perfection, always give yourself a break. You don't have to work all the time to become successful at an early age. Give yourself a time off to find who you really are. Lastly, and most important ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!! Believe in your instincts, believe in your work, believe that you are doing a great job, and be proud of who you are as well. If you happen to hate your career or your major, change it, and do what you love to do. These 5 steps will help you to mostly enjoy your life. Don't stress yourself so much. I followed this steps and it has given me a way to enjoy a love my life, my internship, and my school.

This post really helped me a lot! This has been a really stressful semester for me; I really haven't been getting a lot of sleep or eating. Thank you for reminding me to take a break!

Nice input!  Pulling all-nighter has never worked for me. I always end up falling asleep! So, instead I just wake-up early. I've heard from doctors that pulling all-nighter to study for a test doesn't "work". As in, it is better to study for the test in the morning. But I've also heard from studies that if you study 30 minutes before you go to sleep, you're less likely to forget the information. I guess it depends on what works for you.
