From Art Supplies To Mugs Here Are 12 Things On Every Future Teacher's Christmas Wish List

As a prospective teacher, your wishlist never stops growing. All year long, you see things that could look so cute in your future classroom or help you stay organized in your future classroom. The time has finally come when you can share your wishlist with friends and family and hope for the best. If you're a future teacher, you need these 12 things on your wishlist ASAP.

1. A pretty, new set of pens.

So you can color code EVERYTHING, you know, the way it should be.

2. An agenda for the new year.

Your current one is probably beat up, so a fresh one will get you so excited.

3. A funny teacher wine glass.

One of the cutest items on your wish list, a wine glass like this is a must.

4. A cute coffee mug.

While a wine glass is adorable and necessary, it's also important to have something to hold your coffee for those work appropriate beverages,

5. Signs for your future classroom.

To spice up the place, or to make your desk more personal. Either way, these signs are a hit among teachers and make a great gift.

6. A teacher tote bag.

Tote bags are a necessity to carry everything to and from school. Bonus points if it's monogrammed or personalized!

7. Ornaments.

It's never too early to start filling your tree with teacher ornaments.

8. Clothing to add to your teaching attire wardrobe. 

If you're not officially a teacher yet, start stocking up on the basics when holiday sales are happening! Think business casual pants, cute sweaters, and more that you can ask for!

9. Teacher t-shirts.

Especially if you'll be teaching elementary school...these are too fitting!

10. Candles.

Teachers love candles, so this is a fool proof gift that can do no wrong.

11. Insulated tumblers.

Teachers can never have too many caffeine holders, am I right?

12. Art supplies. 

Freshly sharpened color pencils or a variety pack of markers will do the trick.

The teacher or future teacher in your life would be thrilled to receive any of these gifts! After all, they've been compiling a wish list all year long!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
