My End of Year Doctoral Horror Story

  Hey guys! Ms. Duggan is back! I know it’s been awhile since I updated my blog but as you know I was working in Italy as a mental health clinician on an archaeological dig site. Don’t worry you will get ALL the details later. I’m finally back at work and getting back to my normal busy life and things are going well so far. But around the time I got back into the swing of things I had a major doctoral catastrophe! (Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video “My Doctoral Horror Story” where I am looking at the camera with a terrified look.) While I was away, I was still enrolled in two courses that had been going pretty well. I actually finished one while I was in Italy and received an A in the course.   The other course had one last assignment due that I planned to finish once I got back to the states. However, to my surprise it was due while I was in Italy and I was totally not prepared to finish it. (Figure 2: This is a photo of Ms. Jay, an African American male fashion

Adult Daily Living Skills: Organizing Under Your Kitchen Sink

 

So the area under my kitchen sink had become overrun by grocery bags. I mean they were everywhere so much so that I dreaded opening the cabinets because they would fall out all over the place and I could never find anything down there. As you know, Saturdays are my cleaning day so I decided to tackle this project after putting it off for so long. To prepare I actually got on Amazon and purchased a three pack of grocery dispense bags so that I could better organize these things.




Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my YouTube video Adult Daily Living Skills: Organizing under Your Kitchen Sink that has a picture of my very unorganized kitchen sink area.



I started with clearing everything out and wiping down the insides of the cabinets. After this, I organized my cleaning products neatly in a bucket that I keep under my sink. I also made sure to throw away any old products and other trash that I found. Lastly, I began to tackle the mountain of grocery bags. I did this by placing them together in a pile and folding them hotdog style so that I could place them in the bag dispenser. After I couldn’t bunch another set of bags together I decided to throw away all of the excess ones that I didn’t need anyway.


Figure 2: This is a photo of my two grocery bag dispense holders hanging in my pantry. One is blue and the other is gray and orange.


Once the bags were organized I placed them in each dispense holder and hung them on a command strip in my pantry. You would not believe how cute and organized they looked! I guess grocery bags aren’t so bad after all... well when they’re organized at least! What is your under kitchen sink area looking like these days? Do you have some work to do? Drop down in the comments and let me know!

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

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

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
