Black Friday is looming its ugly head over our wallets and our inner materialist. I, for one, love shopping. But what I hate is the guilt I feel after thinking about all the damage I did to the world (and my bank account!) after my splurge of purchases. I’m talking about the receipt paper, the […]

Make Time for You

Student-parents at CSUN, Finals are near and so is Thanksgiving break.  It’s a perfect time to catch up on some studying and to prepare for those tests, but it’s just as important to take time out for yourself.  Going to school and taking care of little one’s can take up 150 percent of your time, […]
