how to graduate college debt free

I know I am not a college blogger so I have no idea whether my lovely readers are interested in this. But I have been hearing a lot of complaints from my friends lately that the burden of paying off their students debts are weighing them down and that it’s stressing them out. I have a bachelor’s degree and 3 advanced diploma’s (No I am not a nerd, I had to take the long route to get into uni as I’m not smart enough and I had to study to be able to stay in Australia) You would think that I’m in tremendous debt but I actually finished studying with almost 30K in my bank account. 

Even if I can just help one student survive their student life with no/lesser debt then I have done my job. So today, on Simply Manon I am sharing how I survived uni debt free.

Travel the Great Ocean Road, It is one of the world's most scenic coastal drives. Witness the Famous 12 Apostles, Iconic Surf Beaches, Wildlife and more...

The Great Ocean Road is one of my favourite roads in Australia and I think it’s certainly the best road in Victoria. 

It offers amazing scenic views, breathtakingly beautiful beaches, small resort towns, rainforest, steep cliffs, crystal clear water and Australian wildlife. When I lived in Melbourne a while back I made the drive a few times, and absolutely loved it. I even did a helicopter ride over the Twelve Apostles, what a great experience. You can ride this route all year round, but there’s nothing better than going on a sunny weekend when it’s warm enough to stroll along the beach. 

If you’re heading to Melbourne, then  make sure you take some time to travel the Great Ocean Road and use my travel guide below!

Reduce blogging stress

I quite often go on and on about my love of blogging. For me, it is a tremendous way of dealing with stress and making my creative juices flow. It has become a true outlet for me, and I could probably write 10 blog posts on how great it is. But, any blogger can tell you that it is not all sunshine, rainbows, and positive feedback! When you start blogging seriously, whether it is to increase your followers, start collaborating with business or monetizing your blog in another way, things can start to get more than a little stressful.

Contacting people on time, keeping them informed, writing quality content for them as well as keeping your own blog running are just some of the things that you need to do on a day-to-day basis. I then have not even covered social media, emails, and photography. 

Even though I am a pretty new blogger – Simply Manon has taken off recently getting lots of requests to work with me. Because I was not able to blog for almost two weeks because my MacBook broke, I am now behind on everything and I am struggling to catch up.  I forced myself to sit down and evaluate what it was about blogging that was making me so anxious  and after identifying what was stressing me out the most, I was able to take some steps towards helping reduce blogging stress. Because I love you all I decided to write these things down and share it with you today.
