12 Back To School Tips Everyone Needs To Know

It is that time of year again where you walk into Target and see "Back to School" signs plastered everywhere. I can almost feel the late night studying and panic attacks. On the bright side it is football season and tailgating season. It is amazing how college will be the best time of your life but also the worst. Through the most stressful time you also get to make amazing memories and make so many friends, so it evens out. My first year I learned time management and how to prioritize.

1. Leave early to find a parking spot. They are nearly impossible to find so good luck to you all.

2. Enjoy syllabus week. This is by far the easiest week and just remember it only goes downhill from here.

3. Don't wait until the night before to write a paper. You will probably end up watching Netflix and panicking the next morning.

4. Email your professors to let them know what a good job they are doing. It will pay off if you start kissing their butts now.

5. Make friends in every class. You don't want to suffer alone.

6. If you don't understand the material always ask. It will be less embarrassing than failing a test.

7. Don't skip class. The one day you skip will be the hardest class of the semester.

8. Keep up with homework. The professor will ask you about it in front of the entire lecture so save yourself.

9. Take notes. That two hour lecture is not meant for naps and Netflix.

10. Don't eat Ramen everyday. Freshman Fifteen is no rumor.

11. Don't slack. Going out is fun but get your moneys worth out of your education.

12. Have fun. Go make friends and discover yourself.

Chuck And Blair, Blair And Chuck

Why our favorite Gossip Girl couple should not be our relationship goals.


I love Gossip Girl as much as the next person. There is nothing better after a long day than curling up in bed and submerging myself in everything that the Upper East Side and all of it's drama is. Over the course of the seasons I fell in love with the characters, particularly Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. When I first watched the show I idealized the two of them. They were my relationship "goals" and I wanted everything that they had. However, as I went back and watched the show again some time later, after I had had a few years of experience with relationships, I realized that they are most definitely NOT my relationship goals. And they should not be anybody's.

A letter to my friend I’ll love forever

“It’s sad but sometimes when two people come to the end of the road they have to take different paths”

It started way back in 2014, the very first time I saw you, you had long blonde hair and bright green eyes and a smile that was infectious. You where holding my favorite cousins hand, you didn’t say much at first and neither did I.

How My Long Distance Relationship Changed Me

My personal experience on distance and dating

Bayly Grosskopf

I never thought I would be the kind of person to be in a long distance relationship. I always though that it was selfish to be with someone when you can't really BE with them. I grew up not having a very good example of relationships in my life. My parents were divorced at age nine and I had to mature a lot faster than most, and I never really got to experience that "one big, happy, family" scenario that every other small town American family seemed to have. I never imagined myself to be okay with seeing someone every once in awhile and practically dating a technological device because you couldn't actually be with the person in real life.
