Bobby is a neurotic podcast host who's happy to go on Tinder dates and content not to have a serious relationship. That all changes when he meets Aaron, an equally detached lawyer who likes to play the field. Repeatedly drawn to each other, both men begin to show their vulnerable sides as their undeniable attraction turns into something resembling a commitment.

Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Chris Kroeze's adherence to roots rock and country traditions proved to be a winning formula for the Wisconsin native when he appeared on the 15th season of The Voice. He took home the crown of Runner Up when the season wrapped in late 2018, but by that point, his heartland appeal had been evident: he had strong placements on internet charts and he'd already chalked up years on the road supporting everybody from Montgomery Gentry to the Doobie Brothers.

Mental Health Tips-Studying

However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. –Stephen Hawking

It can be difficult to stay motivated to keep up with homework and studying. Here are seven tips to try to keep you on track.

1. Get started—sometimes this is the biggest hurdle. Motivation often comes from engaging in the activity, rather than waiting to “feel motivated” to get started.

2. Create a check list—start with easier or simpler tasks and work your way up. Remember, there is always something you can succeed at.

3. Set aside study time—be intentional with your time by setting boundaries for yourself. Schedule time to study and follow through with it.

4. Schedule breaks too—sitting yourself down and doing homework for 3 hours sounds…well, not fun. Take a break, eat a snack, go for a walk. A quick 10-minute break can help look at your studies with a refreshed mind.

5. Get enough sleep—by getting a full nights rest, you are more likely to retain more information and perform better on exams. Try going to bed early and waking up early if you feel like you need to cram, rather than going to bed late and waking up tired.

6. Teach someone—one of the best forms of learning is teaching. Try to give a “lecture” to your roommate or study buddy, if you feel like you and easily explain the content, you got it! Otherwise, review the things that you felt less confident about.

7. Find your best study spot—maybe you need a quite room in the library, or the gentle rumble of voices from the MSC. Pay attention to where you find you are most productive and study there.
