11 Things College Girls Will ALWAYS Have In Her Backpack

Fancy pens, so our notes need to be pretty so we can look back at them while cramming and say, “Oh pretty!”

11 Things College Girls Will ALWAYS Have In Her Backpack

When getting my backpack ready each day, I realize that I don’t travel light. Sure, I have books and notebooks, but here are some other essentials that I and other college girls carry with them on a daily basis (if you should ever need something)

1. A water bottle

I always carry one with me, because I drink a ton of water, but I find more girls have water bottles than any other type of drink (unless it’s an 8 AM class, which is sponsored by coffee)

2. Keys

Whether it be dorm keys or car keys, or house keys, we jingle and jangle so much you can hear us from a mile away

3. Fancy pens

Our notes need to be pretty so we can look back at them while cramming and say, “Oh pretty!”

4. Tissues

In the real world, nobody has tissues. Girls always come prepared for the tears, runny noses and spills of life

5. Band-Aids

Same goes for band-aids. Those hangnails and paper cuts always come at the worst time and those makeshift tissue Band-Aids just don’t work

6. A snack

I mean a girl has got to eat. Lunch is still over an hour away

7. A second snack

And then another one for later, because the munchies hit at 2:00 and you won’t be home until 5.

8. Headphones

3-hour break between classes= 3-hour jam session with yourself

9. Their laptop

It makes you look like you are listening in class, but really are writing an Odyssey article

10. A planner

If you are going to keep up with life, you have to write it down and highlight it and cross it out and have a cute cover to make you seem like you have it all together (which is silly because nobody does)

11. Wrappers they said they would throw away 2 weeks ago

When you are too lazy to throw things away, you discover your backpack has become a garbage can. Avoid that at all costs, nobody wants bugs.

Did I miss something? Probably. These are the basics, but every girl has different needs. Who knows, you might even carry a purse.

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.
