8 Life Changing Inventions... That Haven't Been Invented Yet
Kaboompics // Karolina

Often times I think of things that don't exist yet, but really need to be invented. Some of those things are practical, some of them are not, but all of them are awesome. Over the past few months, I have kept track of some of my best inventions and have narrowed them down to this list.

The list seems to comprise of many things that would make a college students life easier, but I think they would benefit everyone. If you know one of these things exists already, don’t tell me. I want to feel like an inventor. I’m actually just going to throw a ™ on all of these right now. Here is a list of eight of my greatest ideas.

1. Margarita K-Cups

I’m sorry but this is nothing short of genius. By margaritas, I do not mean just margarita mix. I mean a real margarita, alcohol and all. Imagine – it’s a Friday night, you’re busy getting ready to go out. Instead of having to waste time making yourself a drink, you just pop in your margarita K-cup and you’re ready to go. Again, it is genius.

2. Cream for tongue burns

Honestly, it’s 2016, how is this not already a thing? Tongue burns are the bane of everyone’s existence and there needs to be a way to heal them rather than suffer for days on end without working taste buds.

3. Find command for books and class notes

The find command is the best thing about computers. You can be doing research for a paper, and rather than actually reading a long document, you can search for the relevant keywords. As a college student, I can attest to the amount of time this has saved me. Now if only we had something like this for pages of books or handwritten class notes, we’d be golden.

4. A hood for coats that dries your hair

I’m not sure how this one would work out logistically, but think about how convenient this would be! I for one hate blow-drying my hair, and am often times just fitting in a shower before running to class. How great would it be to throw your hood up and have your hair dry on your walk to campus?

5. Self Control for iPhone

There is no way my roommates and I would get through finals week without the Self Control app to keep us off our emails, Facebook, Instagram and Buzzfeed. But unfortunately, there is nothing like this for our IPhone’s so when we’re rejected access from those sites on the computer, we just turn to the mobile apps. I know that this is apparently not possible to do on a non-jail broken phone, but I think that’s a lame excuse and it needs to be invented.

6. Voice control for the emoji keyboard

This one probably isn’t necessary, namely because I never use voice control for normal texting, but it would be cool. I would really enjoy just saying the word ‘chipmunk’ and having the chipmunk emoji pop up.

7. Tissue armband for running

If you ever run in the winter, you have probably had to deal with the challenge of packing tissues. I never seem to know where to put them, and end up trying to stick them in my clothes which never works. I imagine that making some type of armband, like the ones they make for phones and iPods, would end up working well. You could be like a running tissue box.

8. A money tree

This may sound greedy, but I have wanted to invent a money tree for as long as I can remember. I wouldn’t want the money tree to be growing hundreds, I just want to be able to run out of my room and grab two dollars from the tree on the way so I can buy a snack or something. I could even use all the dollars I grow for charitable giving. I don’t really care; I just want to be able to pluck money off of a tree.

If you think you can make one of my ideas a reality, let me know. Maybe we can work out a deal. Otherwise, I’m keeping the ™.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
