Graduating in a pandemic was a surprise for everyone. But it is important that everyone stays safe and remains healthy. I'm sorry to all my friends, classmates, and the first generational students who have worked so hard to graduate and walk the stage, but remember this- just because you don't have the opportunity to walk the stage doesn't make your achievements any less. You have worked extremely hard to get here and you should be tremendously proud of your accomplishments because you survived your 4+ years of college!

Here are 6 gift ideas that I came up with for an OU college senior. Of course, there are tons of better gifts like anything that is signed by Lincoln Riley or Baker Mayfield, but I wanted all of these gift ideas to be affordable for everyone and that's how I chose them.

1. Mask

Still representing OU, even if you are graduating in quarantine. And if you don't have a mask, you should probably think about ordering one soon. Not trying to throw any shade, just being honest.

3. Watch

A beautiful leather watch with the OU logo in the center of the clock. There are several different versions of this for girls and guys.

4. Tassel necklace

This is a simple necklace that you can have a mini tassel to remind you of your accomplishments no matter where you go.

5. A Jersey

This is a Baker Mayfield jersey but it could be for any athlete. Jersey's will forever be in style and if you buy your graduate this, I can almost guarantee that they are going to love it!

6. Anything with the word Alumni on it

Because they've earned it, alumni status.

I'm a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die, I'll be Sooner dead.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
