The Best 5 Ways To Celebrate Easter At College If You're Stuck On Campus

With college comes holidays alone . . . here are ways to help make it fun!

1. Treat Yourself to some Easter Candy 

If you're missing your annual Easter candy run down to CVS the day of Easter and get all of the discounted Easter candy. Trust me it will be 100% worth it when you're sitting in your dorm and chopping on some Cadbury eggs in your dorm reminiscing on the Easters that you had growing up.

2. Go out to eat with your best friends!

In Syracuse, especially Armory Square, there are a bunch of wicked good restaurants to go to with your best friends for Easter dinner. When you are unable to be with your family it is the next best thing to be surrounded by friends and great food.

3. If you don’t feel like going off campus, dine in!

Sometimes going out for food is just not within the budget when you have to pay for an Uber ride to get there and back. So the next best thing is to Grub Hub some food to your dorm! My 2 suggestions would have to be Bleu Monkey or Cheesecake Factory, you and your friends can sit around your dorm room floor and have a feast.

4. Get your friends Easter baskets! 

My friends and I thought that it would be a really cute idea to do a secret Santa like gift swap except for Easter, so I guess you could call it an Easter Bunny Swap. It is a good way to show your friends that you appreciate them by grabbing them a little gift that you know will brighten their day, and it makes school feel a little more like home.

5. Tell your parents to send you an Easter care package

My mom is a blessing so when she came to visit me the weekend before Easter she brought me a little Easter care package that I was so grateful for. I don't think there is anything wrong with asking your family for a little care package when you are missing them a little extra during the holiday season.

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
