The Chant

While the comfort of working in bed appeals to most students, working where you sleep causes a lack of separation between work and home, which leads to sleepless nights and unproductive days. Students should try to set up a separate workspace from their beds to achieve the best workday possible.  “Working from my bed definitely makes the division between my school day to the rest of my day more blurry than the days when I work from my desk. Along with that, it also makes it difficult to focus on school when in an environment I tend to relax in,” Magnet senior Abbey Corley said.

Magnet senior Ana Barahona sells a cookie to a hungry student as a way to earn money. However, she plans to use the money in a unique way to help others instead of spending it herself. “In the spring, I’m going to a special needs school in Honduras, and I’m using the money to pay for shipping for clothes and school supplies. I needed a way to get money instead of just asking people, so I decided to have a Christmas bake sale,” Barahona said. Students can find her in the Magnet Lounge selling Christmas tree rice krispies, hot chocolate cookies, and white chocolate popcorn for $1.50.
