Someone brought up “Defiance” in my inbox, and while I’d rather not post that again, I was reminded of this video of Brandon Bollig in college at St. Lawrence University. Somehow. Don’t ask how my brain works.

Decreasing the hour on students’ alarm clocks might increase their grade point averages.

A study conducted by St. Lawrence University in New York showed that students who wake up for earlier classes are more likely to perform well academically, a trend some OU professors said they are surprised to see.

Serge Onyper, assistant professor of psychology at St. Lawrence, was one researcher involved in this study.

This is a simple diet and memory trick. Research studies indicate that chewing gum can improve short-term and long-term memory. Some researchers found this even with sugar-free gum. So it’s not the sugar. One theory of why this works is that the chewing motion increases your heart rate. Increased heart rate increases blood flow to your head and brain. More blood flow means more oxygen, which helps your brain work better. Rather than chewing gum constantly throughout the day, maybe save it for times when you need to perform well mentally. It’s probably not a good idea to chew gum when giving a speech or other situations where you need to talk. But when studying, reading, or taking an exam, chewing gum might give you that extra mental edge. If you decide to start chewing gum, I’d suggest the sugar-free variety only. Orbitz is one brand that I like. It comes in several different flavors. But any sugar-free gum is fine. (via Diet and Memory - Feed Your Brain!)

They will come back, those days, and start you dreaming,
Years after in the fall when you’re away.
You may forget for years this place, this college,
And find it in your heart some autumn day.
You will remember then these other falls,
The color and the campus and the town,
The easy days that somehow slipped away,
As scarlet leaves melt swiftly into brown.
