4 Things That I Could Not Live Without As A College Student
Start writing a post

As a college freshman, these four items are must-haves!

1. My AirPods are lifesavers.

When it comes to things that aren't living, breathing people, pets, or animals, AirPods come next in my life. AirPods became a trend, but they've been my personal lifesaver since they came out! I never liked using earbuds because of all the wires and cables and such, but now I never have to go back! If you think AirPods are not worth the money or that they may be overrated, I'd urge you to take a second look. These suckers have saved my life when I'm on the phone or listening to music. And yes, they even accommodate your old Android smartphone!

2. My Bible is my comfort.

I personally consider my faith to be strong. I've been a lifelong Christian for eighteen years now. I have always had a Bible in my room. It is my comfort object. I went to college and did not have my Bible with me. After about two days, I went home to retrieve my Bible because I missed it! Although it may not be a constant resource in my life, it is a reminder that I always carry my faith with me.

3.  My Yeti is essential.

I have had the same 32 ounce Yeti for about four years now, and it is famous with my friends. Literally half the time, my friends can recognize me from a far because of my teal, sticker-filled cup. My Yeti stickers are all from Key West where my mom and I would vacation each summer. My Yeti serves as a staple to remind me of my many childhood memories and blissfully happy times in the Florida Keys.

4. Spotify is my go-to.

What am I supposed to listen to with my AirPods in if I don't have a Spotify Student subscription? I am in LOVE with Spotify and have been for many years. I was that one person that would get the three month premium trial for $9.99 and then cancel the trial after two months and thirty days over and over again. These days, I've settled for the $4.99/month student subscription. I listen to Spotify while I study, relax, run, eat, sleep, breathe, and live. I would 10/10 recommend taking advantage of that reduced Spotify Student subscription price while you can!

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
