18 Boujee Gifts Your Grad Desperately Needs

You only graduate (undergrad) college once! Shower your love with gifts to celebrate all their hard work! Whether it's your best friend, sorority sister, or close relative, here's a list of cool shit that every recent grad wants.

1. A fancy-schmancy adult journal

Everybody needs a leather journal, and what better occasion to give one then graduation? This one has over 5 different options for covers and is only $24!

2. A giant, chunky knit blanket (that we're all too lazy to make ourselves)

Everyone has this pinned to their Pinterest board, but rarely do people get around to making them. Gift this one to your fave grad for only 22$!

3. A chic AF home sign

Some people move to a new place after college, so what better to gift to someone than a sign to make their home FEEL like home? This one is only $30, and is perfect for your chic grad!

4. A box full of cute succulents

For your friend that sucks the least, grab them this super cute box of 4 live succulents! It's all the craze right now, and they're so easy to keep alive that even your plant-killers will seem like gardeners! This one is only $22 and comes with a super cute greeting card. Suprise grad! Here are four baby plants to keep you happy.

5. A nice vintage university sweatshirt

Because nobody wants to admit that they're an alum, especially when they still want to party!

6. Food... nuff said

During college and after college, people tend to be broke. Spoil your favorite grad with their favorite binge snacks. Whether it's for emergency breakdowns, bad days, or just for snacks, your grad will love food! This 40 pack is only 20$. Bless up.

7. Travel related gifts

Encourage your grad to travel the world, because they're still young and need to live. This cute little luggage tag is only $5 and will totally inspire the wanderlust in your grad.

8. A book about escaping adulthood

If your grad is like many others, they will struggle sometimes transitioning into "real life." Buy them something to take the edge off (that isn't wine), like this cute/funny comic book for only 10$.

9. Something that reminds them to cook stuff

Even if it's frozen pizza. That still counts. This nifty gadget promises to provide more crispy pizza, and only for $15.

10. Boujee bookends

When people think of rich people's houses, fancy bookends usually are in the mix. Inspire your grad to strive for a good job and moo-lah! These bookends (look expensive), but are less than $20!

11. A personalized diploma display

Some graduates may want a fancy frame to display all their blood, sweat, and tears but for your country chic grad this laser printed replica is even better! This one is only $23!

12. A personalized candle reminiscing good times

Everybody loves the look of a candle, even if they don't like the smell! Buy your grad a unique scent (or scentless) candle made just for them to remind them of all the good college times.

13. Bath bombs... because DUH.

Graduating brings stress, tension, and unknown which are all things that can be cured with an hour-long bath featuring a bath bomb! Grab a bulk pack for $20!

14. Gift cards

Because let's be honest, sometimes people like to pick out their own gifts. OR grads may want to spend money on food or home items instead of things they don't necessarily NEED.

15. An "adult" and "profesh" watch

Make sure your grad isn't late for all those interviews, or late to watch This Is Us. Both important. You can get this one for $40!

16. Necklaces that don't say "I graduated"

Necklaces that say "Class of 2018" are so high school. Buy your grad a personalized necklace that is super adulty but not too basic. This one has various chain lengths, for the person who doesn't wear necklaces that are too short. Oh, it's also only $26.

17. Tools

Your roommate isn't there with her duct tape and gorilla glue, so it's time to give your grad the tools to actually fix shit! Give them this super cute set for $38, and it comes in pink and red!

18. Memories

This one doesn't cost money, but it may be the most important and special. Every graduate wants to know that you love them and that the memories y'all shared were special. Tell your grad just how you feel before they spread their wings and fly.

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.

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.
