As the semester begins, many students are faced with changes in the way we do things. From how we learn, to how we play and how we socialize, these variations can be met with an overabundance of emotions. These changes may consciously or subconsciously affect our decisions. For the above reasons, we need to double-check ourselves and the ones around us to make sure that we remain at our best.

When thinking of sports, naturally the first things that come to mind are baseball, basketball, football or soccer. What if I told you there is a sport with just as much excitement that requires the use of blindfolds to play? That sport is goalball.

COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc on California residents this year and staying home has proven to be the most effective precaution to avoid contracting the virus. Due to instruction being conducted virtually this semester, many students who would typically be moved into the dorms or an apartment near campus are saving money and learning from the comfort of their parents’ or family homes. With more time spent around family members, students may find themselves irritated and resort to excessive screen time getaways. However, a shift in one’s mindset from ‘I wish I was somewhere else’ to ‘I have everything I need right here’ will encourage positive relationships within your family.
