College is an interesting place.

We think we are becoming adults, growing into who we are supposed to be, and while (hopefully) that's happening, we also catch on to some pretty unique trends. Although it differs from university to university, depending on the location, weather, etc., here is a list of clothes and accessories that were irrelevant until you came to college.

1. Oversized T-shirts (short or long-sleeved)

So even if you've just rolled out of bed, no one will know.

2. Laptop stickers

You can rep your letters while looking studious.

3. Ugly sandals

Looking at you, Chacos and Birkenstocks. They may be ugly, but they are also comfortable.

4. Nike shorts

So you can at least look like you went to the gym.

5. White high-top Converse sneakers

Very cute, but I'm not sure how this came to be a thing.

6. Backpack buttons

Because why not put your letters on everything you own?

7. Iced coffee

Delicious and energizing.

8. Ray-bans

No makeup? No problem.

9. High-waisted shorts

An excuse to wear short-shorts without showing too much skin.

10. Baseball caps

When dry shampoo just isn't cutting it.

11. Nike running shoes

So your feet aren't killing you by the end of the day.

12. Riding boots/Hunter boots

Keeps those feet warm while looking good.

13. North Face or Patagonia fleeces

The warmest jackets you'll ever wear.

14. Game day pins

Remind you that you're "always wearing your letters," even while tailgating.

15. Frat tanks

To show how much the gym is paying off.

16. Anoraks

Keep you warm while protecting you from the elements (i.e. wind and rain).

17. Flannels

For added warmth, whether they're tied around the waist or worn normally.

18. Spirit Jerseys

Huge and comfy.

19. Fleece or puffer vests

Perfect for those 50 degree fall days.

20. Flower crowns

Used way more than you think, from Bid Day to Waltzes.

21. Longchamp tote bags

Because they carry everything, from your laptop to your water bottle.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
