I Got My Summer Refund Check!

  It’s my favorite time of the semester you know the one where free money is involved?! My semester started a week ago and my refund posted shortly after. If you’ve been reading my blog or watching my YouTube channel, then you know I am a champion for scholarships and free money. This past year my employer decided to pay for doctoral degrees in full which greatly assisted in my debt free journey. Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video “I Got My Summer Refund Check” where I am sitting in my office with my hand under my chin with a smile while looking at the camera. Although my schooling is paid for, I still have several scholarships that provide some overage. My goal is to not only obtain my doctorate degree for free but to make money while doing it! This summer I received two scholarships for $500 each for a total of $1000! One scholarship was given to me by the university without me having to apply while the other is for my work with a local community college.  With

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.

 

Figure 3: This is a screenshot from my YouTube video on Nair. I am washing the product off of my leg in the bathtub with a washcloth.


 

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 Refunds are Here for College Students

 It’s my favorite time of the semester…REFUNDS! A few weeks after the semester begins all of your financial aid pays out and if there’s any left over you get a refund! You will know that your receiving a refund if there’s a negative balance on your account. It’s the one time in history where you actually want to see a negative balance!  Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video where I am in my office with a surprised look on my face.  This semester I paid $241 in fees and I received a $500 grant for individuals who work at community colleges. Oh yeah  did I mention I work at a community college too part time as a tutor? Anyhoo, since I had already paid off my student account I received the $500 as a refund. If you’ve been watching my YouTube videos or reading my blogs then you already know this money is going to debt.  Figure 2: This is a photo of three $100 bills and three $50 bills. With refunds posting to accounts daily you want to make sure that you are constantly c

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

Navient Student Loan Settlement

  Alright guys another update on student loan forgiveness is upon us! This time it’s not from Mr. Byron but instead it’s from one of the largest student loan holders in America. Navient formerly known as Sallie Mae will have to fork over 1.7 billion dollars in student loan forgiveness due to a recent settlement that found them to have participated in predatory loan practices that negatively impacted a countless number of student loan borrowers.   While 1.7 billion will go towards student loan forgiveness, another 95 million will be distributed as $260 payments.    Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video on “Navient Student Loan Settlement” where I have my hand under my chin while looking at the camera. I am wearing a grey shirt with lettering and my hair is short, black, and curly.  Instead of giving it’s borrowers the option to enroll in lower cost plans they were sold on the idea of forbearance which provided little to no help at all. Actually, borrowers were p
