With preparation workshops taking place every Tuesday except for spring break, I thought I was ready for the headshots and interview practice, until I got off work March 6 at 10 pm. and realized I had no foundation makeup. As someone who is competing in a pageant, you'd think I'd have all the,makeup essentials. However, you would be wrong. For one thing, since my fi- ancé and I have been together for over 3 12 years, I have gotten lazy in the makeup depai tinent. I usually enjoyed fairly clear skin, and I found 15 minutes of sleep more valuable than looking my polished best. So why did I suddenly feel the need for foundation? I have eczema. Eczema is a condition that makes your skin both red and left untreated itchy, which and spread infected can get I over your body. am one of who those unlucky people However, my eczema is triggered by stress, and e student since I am full-tim- graduating this semester, e jobs, working four all while writing for the student paper, I understand why my body decided to ecd have a zema flare-uBut it is on my face of all places, which has been a blow to my vanity. With all the lotions I apply to my face to keep the skin from cracking, makeup would be inadvisable. It can clog the pores of healthy skin, so I've avoided using it to hide my eczema. However, for the what the judges will see before I have an interview with them. I knew I had to slap on some part-tim- stress-induce- p. head-shot- s, makeup.

Jessica White, an academic adviser for the business depattment, said spring bteak contributes to this feeling. "Students get so excited for spring break thinking they will come back refreshed," White said. "In reality, it's like they have gotten that taste of summer, and it makes them not want to do anything when they come back." Megan Huddleston, a senior psychology major from Provo, said when she realizes she has started to lose motivation, she tries to put the end goal into perspective. "I don't want to study or do the work, but I want to succeed so I just grind through it," Huddleston said. "Also, when you realize how much you've paid for these classes, you really want to pass to not waste the money." To avoid having to retake classes, do not skip class on a routine basis because it can become a hard habit to break, Huddleston said. "Being in class, even Cate Siniscalchi, a freshman graphic design major from Stansbury Park, said it's important to stay well rounded throughout the entire semester because the beginning of the semester and the end ultimately have the same impact on a student's grade. Huddleston said she recommends putting additional time and effort, especially during the end of the semes- when it sucks, helps you stay dedicated, helps you learn the information better, and also shows your teacher you're willing to be there and work for your grade," Huddleston said. "So, if you need a favor or are having trouble on an assignment they'll be much more willing to help you." Chelsea Ponce, a sophomore general studies major from Bedford, New York, said students should continue to put in the same effort as they did at the start of the semester, even if that means missing out on fun activities with friends. "Friends are more fun than school yes, but they don't get you a degree," Ponce said. BY TAYLOR LEWIS ter. "It is one of those things where it's not gonna be easy, but grinding through it and getting it done now will save you the stress and panic of when it's finals and you're trying to pass your class," Huddleston said. r , N ., --- - , ' 1 .:.
