Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. Get to know your professors early on.
In your later years, good relationships with professors can lead to recommendations and research and job opportunities.
2. Before booking any overseas travel, check your passports expiry date.
Some countries need your passport to have a minimum of 6 months left of validity before arriving. Some countries also will not accept an emergency passport. Check those dates people.
3. Beware of insanely cheap used cars in the coming months.
Flood damaged cars are often bought cheap, cleaned, and then resold by shady car dealerships.
After a hurricane or flood, there is a risk of several thousand flood damaged cars infiltrating the market. Get a vehicle history from a reputable source. Also, take the time to inspect the vehicle or get a car savvy friend or mechanic to look it over.

4. Pack an empty water bottle in your carry on baggage when traveling.
You can fill it up after being cleared through TSA.
5. When unmotivated, commit to doing 5 small tasks (i.e. put something away) every 30 minutes.
If you do only those five, you’ve still accomplished something but often you’ll get in a groove and do even more.
