10 Gifts To Give On Sweetest Day

A list for when you simply cannot decide what to get your "sweetie" on Sweetest Day.

10 Gifts To Give On Sweetest Day

Ah, Sweetest Day, a holiday created for the express reason of selling candy, cards, and other nauseatingly sweet items in order to express one's devotion to another.

So basically Sweetest Day is the slightly less popular brother/sister to Valentine's Day that no one really asked for but no one is really complaining about either. Unless you're single, in which case you probably couldn't care less about the continuation of these "romantic" holidays.

Whether or not you buy into these kinds of holidays is up to personal belief but for the one's that do, have I got a list of gifts for you!

Buckle your seat belts, folks! This year Sweetest Day falls on Saturday, October 15 so here are 10 of the "best" gifts that you could possibly give to your sweetheart(s):

(Disclaimer: This is all in sarcastic jest so please, unless you are actively attempting to get rid of your significant other/pal/loved one/whatever you call your "other half," etc., do not really use these suggestions.)

1. A spatula

'Cause they're so "flippin'" sweet!

2. A membership to match.com/Tinder/etc.

*Special thanks to my dad for this one!* Try to give this one in an open space so that you are able to execute a clean get away once gifted!


A decently good way to gross any normal person out (unless they enjoy a good ol' can of Spam, in which case, question their life choices and your choice of being with them...)

4. Some of your ex's clothes

What better way to say "I love you" than to re-gift the clothing that you never got around to giving back to your ex!

5. A pair of $2 sunglasses from The Dollar Store

Because you brighten their life so much that they could probably use some!

6. A framed picture of you

Because they really need to know how fantastically lucky they are to have you and what better way to remind them than by having your smiling (or not, up to you really) face sitting next to their bed when they wake up.

7. An already used gift card

Just check your wallet for all those gift cards that have been used down to basically $1 (if they're lucky) and hand 'em over!

8. Something already used

True story: When I was a kid, one year for Christmas I was gifted a small Barbie chocolate tin. I excitedly tore off the ribbon and opened the tin only to find it completely empty because the gifter had become hungry on the way over to the Christmas party. There has been no sweeter Christmas present since and I highly recommend this idea!

9. An avocado

"It's an avocado! Thanks!" Your loved one will absolutely adore this gift just like the kid from this video did!

10. An album of pictures

More specifically, an album of the pictures that you have taken of them while they have slept. For months. Even before you two were together. Couples are so cute!!

In all reality, Sweetest Day is actually a decently okay holiday where people are able to remind the people around them that they are loved (even if it IS just a runner up holiday to Valentine's Day). So go ahead, run out and tell all of your loved ones that you appreciate and love them! In today's world, spreading love and happiness is incredibly important. Even if you don't agree with the commercialized holidays and what they stand for, remember that there are people around you that appreciate and love you. Maybe Sweetest Day is a silly made up holiday but showing affection and acknowledging people in your life is not very silly at all.

Happy Sweetest Day! Go tell someone that you love them and spread some happiness!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
