It's Okay to Ask for Help!

I feel like I haven't "spoken" to you guys in ages! No need to fear. I have plenty to tell you.
Over the past week I have used three services that the university provides to all students. They really helped me out.
Since it’s getting pretty chilly, there have been some cases of the cold and flu. I got the joy of getting a wonderful cough and high temperature! I really hope you see the sarcasm that is so skillfully intertwined into my writing.
Anyhoo, I set up an appointment with Health Services on the Niagara website for the very next day. You always hear bad stories of Health Services at different colleges. People always say that you have to wait forever and they don’t really help you. Fortunately, this was not the case. I was helped with not only a nurse, but a doctor as well! They were both extremely helpful and caring. After there help, I really felt better!
Sure, I know that counseling isn’t for everyone. But sometimes it really helps talking about your stresses or virtually anything. I’m not going to go into the details, but I had a really bad disagreement with my friend and I needed to talk to someone about it. The therapist really helped me out! It was nice talking to someone outside our circle of friends. I really recommend anyone going to Counseling Services if they have any problem at all. You can just go once, or set up weekly sessions. And it’s free!
Well, after midterms were over, I started realizing that I could do better. The best thing about the tutoring that Niagara U provides is that it’s free! I don’t know about you, but I love free stuff. Especially if it’ll help my grades. The student tutors really respect you and do anything in their power to help you out.
Like I said before, don’t be afraid asking for help! It will really help you down the road. I sure hope this helped you guys out. See what I did there? Saying "help"…a lot. If you need help in anything Niagara-related, feel free to email me!
I’m here to help!
