Kermit Says: This Is The Start of Something New

Kermit Says… is back, and we missed you all terribly! My team and I hope you had a fantastic summer and we’d love to hear all about it, so feel free to reminisce about your favorite parts and send them in so we can live vicariously through you!

Now, whether you returned to school nearly a month ago or, you’re like me, and it’s only been one week, summer vacation is o.v.e.r and a new school year has officially begun. I know, I know, no more days where you’re late-to-go-to-bed-and-late-to-rise. No more afternoons at the beach. No more ice cream until your brain freezes—well, maybe not that last one. The end of summer vacation means the end of a lot of fun things, but if we remain positive and optimistic, then this new academic year could mean the start of something new (yes, that was a High School Musical reference).

All jokes aside, a new school year provides another chance to be your best self. Heck, it’s a chance to reinvent yourself altogether. A new school year is like the first snow—completely untouched, fresh, new, pure, and ready for you to do with it what you will. You can either watch it from a distance and let it ruin your moment or you can make a plan of attack and (literally) dive in. How will you approach this new school year? What goals do you want to achieve? Where would you like to see yourself by the end of the quarter, semester, or year? Comment below or send an email to

Let’s make this new school year BETTER than the last!

Kermit Says: Enjoy The Summer Break!

Hi friends! So sorry it’s taken so long to write this post, but the sun is shining brightly, my glass is filled with refreshing lemonade, and the ocean breeze is flowing through my curls. You know what that means? It’s SUMMERRRRRRRRRRRR! That’s right–the few months in a year where we can stay up as late as we want and lose track of time during the day. The few months when your regimen goes out the window and your official uniform is either a bathing suit and flip flops or a pair of shorts and a tank top. So in order to take full advantage of this time off, Kermit Says is on hiatus! Regular blog posts will resume once the school year begins.

In the meantime, do you have an article idea you’d like to see addressed on Kermit Says? Send it in! Or maybe you have a question and need some advice from Kermit? Send it in! Are you doing something awesome this summer and want to tell folks about it? Simply send an email to–we’d love to hear from you! Have a safe and AWESOME summer.

Kermit Says: Keep Calm and Pass Your Exams

Well, friends! It’s the day most students both anticipate and dread. The day they look forward to with both excitement and anxiety. Today kicks off finals week, three days of final exams, projects, presentations, and papers that stand between you and freedom. Three days that stand between you and graduation. Three days that stand between you and summer break. Just thinking about summer vacation brings a single tear of joy to my eye. So what can you do to perform at your optimum level and excel in your classes? Take a look back at my post before winter break, Rock Yo’ Finals!

Remember, the best way to prepare for what can be a pretty stressful week is to approach it with a peaceful mind, calm spirit, and confident demeanor. You can do this! I believe in you, so believe in yourself.
