32 Essential GIFs

32 Essential GIFs

Just a list of unrelated GIFs tbh.

Nothing punctuates a text better than a carefully selected GIF. Emojis can be effective in conveying some emotions, but they are not nearly as impactful or as visually appealing as a GIF. Still, nothing ruins the impact of a GIF reaction like having to pause a conversation to scour the web for the perfect one, only to lose the opportunity to copy and paste in a timely manner. To combat this tragedy, I have compiled a list of thirty-two essential GIFS to add to your arsenal. It doesn’t matter if you pronounce it Gif or Jiff, these graphic interchange formats are proof that there is a GIF for every occasion.

1. For When You’re Angry

2. For When You’re Hungry

3. For When You’re Hangry

4. For When You’re Horny

5. For When You’re Angry and Horny

6. For When You’re Angry, Horny, and Hungry

7. For When You’re Sad

8. For When You’re Feeling Jealous

Alright folks, there you have it. Thirty-two GIFs for almost every occasion, emotion, and season. Of course, this list is not comprehensive. But the beauty of the GIF is the ability to repurpose it. GIFs are funny and effective because the user has the power to manipulate the original intent of the images to meet whatever hilarious or poignant point they’re trying to make. So feel free to play around with this starter pack and rest assured; if you keep this list on file, you will never have to worry about your friends replying before you are able to skewer them with the perfect response. If work on getting your copy and paste speed down, you'll always have the last laugh.

You go, girl.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

7 Affordable, Easy Ways To Vamp Up Your Dorm/Bedroom

A guide to the best room ever.


I've always been a fan of interior design and room decorating, and I'm constantly looking for new ways to improve my room game, make DIYs for my room, or buy cheap room decor. I've compiled 7 tactics I use in my own room to make it look more aesthetic without spending too much on it.

1. Make a wall photo mural.

This is as simple as printing out a ton of pictures of family, friends, or anything else to your liking, and using wall tape to tape it to your room. Some different ways to position the pictures could be in a heart, spelling out your initials, or simply sticking them in rows and columns. A nice touch would be adding fairy lights to it or using string and clothespins to hang them up.

2. Use tapestry.

Tapestry is about as simple as it gets when it comes to room decor. It's inexpensive and it serves as a great backdrop which can be used for a variety of purposes. I personally recommend ones with darker colors, straying away from the lighter, brighter ones.

3. Add throw pillows to your bed.

Throw pillows can get a bit pricey, so it's important to know where to buy them. I always get mine from Ross, TjMaxx, or places like Walmart/Target. Even a few of these can make your bed look 10x better.

4. Use a statement art piece.

Using one bold piece of art or something that serves as a center or focus for the room can help in decorating and making your room look like you put in more effort than actual. Lately, I've been really interested in the multiple pieces of art, where each one completes the other, and neon signs which can sometimes be customized.

5. Keep a color scheme.

When decorating, it's extremely important to stick to a theme or a color scheme and apply it throughout. Although it may be tempting to buy an item that doesn't match, it is more beneficial to stick to the scheme. I've found it appealing to use 2-3 colors because 1 seems as if there's too much going on, and anything above 3 is basically not a color scheme anymore.

6. Keep designated areas for different tasks.

Don't do your homework on your bed! It's extremely important to have a separate work table that allows you to be more organized and keep your nap life away from your student life. It's extremely easy to keep a work room organized, as long as you have designated locations for everything, and put things back when you're done with them!

7. Invest in a comfortable rug.

Throw rugs can make any boring old wooden or tile floor look much more appealing. I personally have invested in many plush throw rugs over the years and I have never been disappointed. However, I recommend getting gray or colored rugs as I find the white ones get dirty easily.
