11 Crafts To Make For Your Formal Date

It's the most craftiest time of the year.

11 Crafts To Make For Your Formal Date

It's formal season and sorority girls love to craft for their date. Whether it be the typical cooler or just something homemade in the kitchen, the "thank you" gifts are getting more and more creative.

1. Cooler

This is the original idea for going to a fraternity formal. You must dedicate a lot of time when making a cooler. The sanding, priming, tracing, painting and sealing can take many days.

2. Flask

This idea is a little more simple. You still have to follow the same steps as a cooler but it is on a smaller scale and doesn't take as much time.

3. Coasters

This gift is crafty and one of the cheapest. The supplies are: tiles, beer cardboard holders, mod podge, scissors and hi-gloss sealant. The tiles are only 16 cents at any hardware store. You can also enjoy the six pack of beer while crafting.

4. Beer Cap Picture

This craft takes a lot of planning if you're trying to make a special design. Once you have collected the caps, mod podge them to the back of the picture frame and let it dry.

5. Beer Cap Picture Frame

This is similar to the beer cap picture but takes less time. Instead of filling the actual picture with caps, you just fill the outside frame.

6. Canvas

Any date would love a hand painted canvas of their favorite sports team, beer or favorite saying. All you need is an idea, tracing paper, and paint.

7. Cookies or any dessert

Baking is crafting right? Everyone loves something sweet and homemade in the kitchen.

8. Bubba Keg

What is better than having your own 52 oz. personal drink? A bubba keg is a perfect small craft that is less work than a cooler but still gives the personal touch.

9. Shot Ski

These are fun and different but a little bit of work. This gift is great for your date that they can share with their friends. It will make them the life of the party.

10. Date Night Trip

Organizing a weekend away is crafty. Whether its a nice hotel on the beach, kayaking, bowling, or something extravagant like a helicopter ride, your date will never expect it.

11. Beer Pong Table

This may be the most time consuming gift, but your date will love it. You must make sure that you seal it together well because beer pong can get messy.

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.

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.
