20 Small Wins That Seem HUGE When You're In College

Let's be real.... college can be rough.

However, there are many beautiful moments in one's college career that need to be cherished. While some are big, some may seem small, although, they really make a difference in your day.

Here are 20 of my own personal favorite and most satisfying feelings discovered over the course of my college years thus far.

1. Getting out of class a few minutes early...

2. ... and consequently being the first one in line at Jittery Joe's or Panda Express.

3. Your first class getting canceled.

4. Or your last class getting canceled.

5. Any of your classes getting canceled, tbh.

6. Making the bus you were sure you were going to miss.

7. When you run for the bus and the driver actually waits for you.

8. When it stops raining right before you leave class, or right as you have come inside.

9. Immediately finding an open study room.

10. Getting a good grade on the test you were certain you bombed.

11. Finding extra money in your back pocket to spend on food.

12. When you accidentally left your laundry in the communal machine too long, but no one threw it on the ground (sweet dorm life).

13. When hell week is over.

14. Actually checking everything off of your to-do list.

15. Sleeping in on Saturdays.

16. Making it into bed by 11 p.m. and not being up doing homework all hours of the night.

17. Getting to hang out with your friends after a long test week.

18. Free food, anywhere and anytime.

19. No early morning Friday classes. Enough said.

20. Actually feeling prepared for your test.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
