Thanksgiving is upon us, and it's that special time of year where we reflect on our lives and everything in it that we are very blessed to have. For college girls, especially sorority girls, the things that we are thankful for may sound very redundant. However, that doesn't mean we don't truly appreciate the things in our lives that make us thankful, and these things just may be common for others as well.

So, here's 11 things every college girl is thankful for, as cliche as it might sound.

1. Her School Friends

College is hard, but it's made a lot easier when you have a good group of gal pals (and guys) around you to support you through the tough school work and still have fun with. College would suck a whole lot more doing it all alone.

2. Her Home Friends

Who else are you supposed to hang out with when home for the holidays? I'm so fortunate to have a close group of friends from high school that still message each other every day, and it's nice to share our home connection but still keep one another updated on our lives.

3. Her Sorority Sisters

For many college girls, joining a sorority is a chance to join a close-knit group of girls with similar interests and common goals. I'm thankful for my sorority sisters for having my back, having good times with me, and making my big school seem a lot smaller.

4. Her Actual Sisters (and Brothers and Parents)

It's hard being away from family, but that longing makes actually getting home to see them so much better. I'm so thankful for a supportive family who wants to see me do well here at school and still keeps me in the loop (sometimes) about everything happening back at home.

5. Her College

With some exceptions, most girls love their schools and are so thankful for the chance to get an education from that institution, and looking back on her college years, she'll be thankful for the opportunity to make such great friends and learn so much.

6. Online Shopping

Many college students don't have the luxury of having a car on campus or most malls or stores within walking distance, so online shopping is key to getting those necessities (and not so necessities) throughout the semester. She's very thankful for Amazon Prime's two-day shipping.

7. Her Boyfriend

If she's in a relationship, chances are she's very fortunate to have a boyfriend who loves her, supports her, and wants to see her do her best. If you're like me, you're extra thankful to have a special someone like that in your life.

8. Free Food

One thing at college you don't always get anywhere else: free food. Her bank account is extra thankful every time she goes to an event with free pizza rather than swiping her card again for dinner.

9. Dogs

I've never had a dog, but luckily my friends, family, and random passerby's on campus keep me full of doggo joy throughout the year. I'm thankful for this loving animal, even though I've never had one to personally call my own. (Also, even though I'm not a huge cat person myself, shoutout to those of you thankful for your cats this year).

10. Netflix and Youtube

I've been personally too stressed and busy to be keeping up with my favorite shows on Netflix this semester (Stranger Things 2, you will be watched soon, I promise), but I have been keeping up-to-date with some of my favorite Youtube channels. Your favorite college girls are very thankful for these streaming sources of entertainment.

11. Holiday Breaks

After months of constant classes, due dates, and studying, your college girl is extra thankful for a few days off to spend time with family and relax, hopefully without any pressing school thoughts. She'll be even more thankful in about a month once finals are done and she gets a whole month off.

Now that you know just a few of some of the most cliche, but still worthy items, college girls are thankful for, go out and share some of that thankfulness to others!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
