[Welcome to Our Favorite Things, a series featuring—you guessed it!—our favorite things. From books to brands to tunes to film, these are all things we at That First Year want to shout from the rooftops about.]
“So then Prussia thought ‘hey, here’s an idea: let’s start a war.”
That’s how my friend and I used to study for our high school AP European History course. We found that spicing up and personifying the somewhat monotonous content not only made the information more interesting, but also allowed us to better remember the details for our exams.
So when another friend pulled out her phone one morning a few months ago and insisted that I must subscribe to theSkimm, I was intrigued. I gave the email a skim (lol I’m so punny!!!) and was immediately taken. It was like theSkimm founders had sat in on my AP Euro high school studying sessions and applied that “let’s make this fun” concept to today’s news.
As a Skimm subscriber, you can expect to receive an email every morning Monday – Friday giving you the low-down – in a fresh and fun way – on the biggest headlines of the day. I’m absolutely obsessed and look forward to reading theSkimm while eating my breakfast each morning. I may or may not have Skimm withdrawals every time the weekend rolls around and I am Skimm-less.
Who knew news could be this fun? theSkimm did. Go ahead and subscribe.
