11 Basic New Year’s Resolutions Every College Girl Will Make

5. Stop drinking wine (or at least cut down): Let's be honest, you are probably drinking way more than needed to reap the health benefits you read about online.

11 Basic New Year’s Resolutions Every College Girl Will Make

When it comes to making New Year's resolutions, it can be hard to find a balance between a good goal and something you can actually stick to. Eighty percent of New Year's resolutions fail by February. Don't be one of those people and try one of these, perhaps you'll find success or learn something about yourself in the process.

1. Cut Starbucks out of your budget.

Even if you only go once a week, unless you order plain coffee, you're probably going to save yourself like five dollars a trip.

2. Stop procrastinating

Yes, I know Netflix is a thing. Yes, those memes on Twitter are entertaining.
Control yourself and stop while you're ahead. You'll thank yourself later.

3. Stop live tweeting the Bachelor/Bachelorette

You don't need to tweet something that every other girl is tweeting. Save your tweets and enjoy the show with your friends, or save all your non-fan friends from reading your updates.

4. Try those Pinterest recipes you pinned last year

You pinned 800 new recipes. Are you ever going to try any of them? Now would be the time to find out.

5. Stop drinking wine (or at least cut down)

Let's be honest, you are probably drinking way more than needed to reap the health benefits you read about online.

6. Drink more water

We're about 60 percent water. Enough said.

7. Clean off your clothing chair

We all have that chair which we just dump everything on. This may seem impossible, but trying to keep it clean will get rid of so much clutter in your life.

8. Go to the gym

You don't have to lose weight to be healthy (you can gain muscle), but going to the gym or exercising is a must to be healthy. I know, it sucks.

9. Stop binge eating Talenti gelato

Those cute little pints are so yummy, but they're probably killing your fitness goals...and your wallet.

10. Clean your closet

You will find so many things you forgot you had. Also, you will find plenty of things you no longer wear, which can be sold to fund some going out or donated to charity.

11. Don't stress too much

Finding a new club, trying a new gym class, reading, writing in a journal, cooking or just watching a movie is a great way to de-stress. While you want to try resolutions out, remember you are human.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
