25 Girl Gang Road Trip Essentials For Spring Break 2019

Taking a road trip with your best friends is surely an experience!

Snacks

Giphy

Snacks are always needed for a road trip. Everyone is always hungry when you are in the middle of nowhere and there is absolutely no sign of civilization so make sure to pack an array of snacks.

Drinks

Giphy

Same concept as snacks. You always need to make sure you stay hydrated during trips.

Cash Money

Giphy

Between tolls, gas stations stops, drive-thru needs, and just in case of an emergency, having a little bit of cash on hand is a smart idea.

Physical Map

Giphy

Ever have no idea where you are, what road you are on, and your cell phone service is spotty? This is why it's useful to have an actual paper map of your route.

Phone Chargers

Giphy

The more the merrier! Everyone's phone seems to die at the exact same time so make sure to throw in a couple portable chargers too.

Pepper Spray

Giphy

In case you happen to stop at a creepy gas station or have some sort of issue arise, pepper spray will help to keep you safe.

Gum

Giphy

No one ever wants to have bad breath so gum is a must.

Aux Cord

Giphy

Be careful who gets aux or else you might get to listen to "Who Let the Dogs Out" several times throughout the course of one road trip. I'm not joking... One of my friends played it on repeat our last road trip together!

Hair Ties

Giphy

Being comfy during a road trip is important, so pack a bunch of hair ties to put your hair in a nice big messy bun.

Downloaded Spotify Playlist

Giphy

No matter where you drive it always seems like you hit some places that your phone just won't load. So, just make sure to download you road trip tunes before you leave home.

Blankets and Pillows

Giphy

A road trip won't be a road trip without a million pillows and blankets to get all comfy and cozy with.

Makeup Blotting Sheets

Giphy

Being stuck in the car for hours tends to not make your skin look it's best, so be sure to throw a pack of blotting sheets into your suitcase.

Gossip

Giphy

Between the napping and great music, you always need something to talk about so make sure to have some gossip to discuss with all your BFFs.

14. Sunglasses

Giphy

Sunglasses are needed not only in case it's a super sunny day, but they also make great accessories to take cool pictures with throughout your trip.

15. Contact Solution

Giphy

Contact solution is usually needed so pack a bottle before you leave.

16. Emergency Kit

Giphy

First aid items, jumper cables, tire pressure gauges and other basic emergency things will help if you get into a sticky situation. You'll never regret having them on hand.

17. Polaroid Camera

Giphy

Taking cute picture during a road trip is part of the fun and having a polaroid camera with you adds to the aesthetic.

18. Feminine Products

Giphy

You never know when you'll need some feminine products. It's the worst to be caught off guard when you need one so packing a few is smart.

19. Baby Wipes

Giphy

Baby wipes are useful for everything from spills to DIY makeup wipes.

20. Pocket Knife

Giphy

Pocket knives are a way to keep you safe in a new place if you happen to get into a bad part of town.

21. Ibuprofen

Giphy

Between headaches, car sickness, cramps, ibuprofen will be your friend during road trips.

22. Garbage Bags

Giphy

Just so your car doesn't look like tornado swept through it, grab a couple trash bags for your road trip. With all the drive-thru bags, random snack wrappers, and water bottles a trash bag comes in handy.

23. Chapstick

Giphy

Especially if you are traveling to a colder place, chapstick is essential. Nothing is worse than having chapped lips and no chapstick.

24. Duct Tape

Giphy

Duct tape is a surprising solution to so many problems so just bring a roll.

25. Reusable Water Bottle

Giphy

It's important to stay hydrated, and you'll be happy that you saved some money by bringing a reusable water bottle instead of having to buy water bottles at gas stations or convenient stores.

Hopefully these tips were helpful! Good luck on your girl power patrol! Stay safe and make good choices!

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
