Did My Tuition Fees Go Up?

  Happy New Year ya’ll! Spring semester is here and as I was going over my course schedule and deciding whether to drop a course, I noticed that my tuition fees had drastically increased. I typically take two courses since this is what my stipend covers but previously I decided to add a third one. After thinking that this may not be a good idea due to my busy schedule I decided to drop the course but not before I realized that my fees had gone up by over $2K! I do remember there being some talk about the increase of fees and there being an open forum regarding this but I was not expecting the increase to be so expensive! Figure 1: This is a thumbnail from my latest YouTube video on “Did My Tuition Fees Increase?” where I am looking at the camera with a confused look. I am wearing a gray and black dress and my hair is short, black, and curly.   In case you did not know tuition fees include things like the gym, health services, the counseling center, and other services on campus that ser

Adult Daily Living Skills: Using Nair (Grooming)

 

As a Special Education teacher, I would have parents often ask me about ways to groom their students i.e. hair removal, hair care, and other things. Many of them were worried about their students hurting themselves or using too much of a given product and making a mess. I would often recommend things like Nair, a hair removal chemical that for the most part is safe but would require some supervision. I like Nair because it is quick, cheap, and does not require a lot of work. I typically use Nair every two weeks on my underarms, legs, and top lip (yes, Ms. Duggan has a mustache!).

Now although Nair is a great product to use there are somethings that you should be aware of. Keep in mind that Nair is a chemical, has a strong smell, and should only be left on for no more than 6-8 minutes. If you are someone, who does not like strong smells and has sensitive skin this may not be an option for you.  Also, only put the product where you want to remove unwanted hair. Stay away from your eyebrows, hair that is on top of your head, or anywhere else you want to keep your hair.

Once you’re ready to get rid of your unwanted hair be sure to wear a pair of shorts so the product does not get on your clothes. When I Nair my legs I squeeze out a nice sized portion onto my hands and pat the product on to my legs and thighs. Be sure to work quick as the product does start to work as soon as you place it on. Once you finish both legs let the product sit for no longer than eight minutes. If you feel any burning or tingling before then be sure to remove it immediately. I then get in the tub, turn on the hot water, and take a washcloth to wipe off the hair. Once you’ve gotten all the hair and product off use some shower gel to wash your legs off. This will make sure all of the product is off and you don’t smell like Nair.

When talking to your student about grooming I would recommend that you introduce Nair by describing the purpose of the product and how to use it safely. How do you remove unwanted hair? Drop down in the comments and let me know!  Check out the video below and tell me if you typically use Nair. Also, don’t forget to purchase a copy of my new eBook where I talk about grooming!

Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here!! (FREE Money for College Students!!)💵🤑💰

  A few days ago, I was surfing on my universities homepage and I noticed that there was a message at the top regarding summer II HEERF and CARES Act funding. Since I was enrolled in both summer semesters, I decided to send an email to the person listed as the contact to ask if I could receive more CARES Act funding for the fall semester. Since I had been enrolled in the first part of the summer and had already received funding I was not eligible but I was told that another round of CARES Act funding would be given in the fall! In case you did not know HEERF funding is the Higher Education Emergency Relief Act that was enacted for college students due to the pandemic. HEERF provides billions of support in education through CARES Act funding for enrolled students. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my YouTube video on “Fall 2021 HEERF & CARES Act Funding is Here” where I am wearing a black shirt with a surprised look on my face. Now while I am not sure on how much you will receive thi

2021 FAFSA Tips!

  So I recently completed my FAFSA and per usual it took less thank fifteen minutes. This got me to thinking on a few helpful tips for those completing the FAFSA for the first time or those who were resubmitting like myself. I know FAFSA can be stressful for some and a breeze for others so these tips will serve both sides of the coin. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video on “2021 FAFSA Tips” where I am looking at the camera while seated in my office smiling in a black top. Use a Desktop or Laptop: Yes, you can complete FAFSA on your phone however when completing important documents using the largest screen possible is a must so that you don’t miss out on any important lines or other information. Head over to the Financial Aid office to use their desktop computers and get assistance if you don’t have one. Use the Transfer Feature: This feature allows you to transfer all of last year’s information to your new application. You can also transfer over yours or your
