10 Clutch Things Besides Naps That Are Always 'The Move' Any Given Day Of The Week For Every College Girl

Every once in a blue moon, you have an off day where you just don't feel like yourself.

Maybe you didn't quite get a grade you wanted, or you spilled something on yourself, or worse of all, you don't know. For me, I get off when I'm overly stressed or have a lot to think about.

Whether you're feeling off or just need something to do, ponder over these well-known activities and go give one a try, even if you "usually don't like that."


I'm honestly a little late to the tea game myself. I never really drank warm beverages besides the occasional hot chocolate in the winter, but this past year I was introduced to a certain tea. It was the Kusmi St. Petersburg Black Tea and I instantly fell in love with it. Since then I've expanded on my flavors but whenever I can, no matter the season, I make time for a cup of tea and I quick appreciation for it and myself.


Even if you aren't very good, doodle. Google search an image you like online and try to recreate it yourself. If you don't want to do that, then just print off a blank picture of something and color it. Creativity is always an amazing outlet, and I bet you'll feel more accomplished than you think.


Music is always something people tell you to calm down with but that's because it works. I just like to put on my favorite band or some really calming melodies and get lost in the sounds.

Your Favorite Movie

Even though you've watched it a thousand times, watch it again because it's your favorite for a reason. Whenever I don't know what to watch I somehow fall on "Beauty and the Beast," and although I can now mimic the script, I am never disappointed by the film.

A New Book

I know, I know, I've heard it forever: "I don't like reading." But I refuse to believe that. Everyone can learn to love reading, it's all about finding the right content, and sometimes the content may surprise you. I adore horses, they've been my favorite animal for my entire life, but I absolutely dread reading books that include them.


This one is a little different but let me explain. Whenever you're stuck on homework or anything go and flop around. Do a handstand against the wall, do a somersault on the floor, jump across the couches and flop onto the cushions, it'll get your mind off whatever and probably make you laugh in the process.

Comfort food

Food, food, food. When does food not help?


Sometimes you really do just need the company of a friend however I would say to just make sure you aren't using company as an escape from your own mind. You can't always hide from your thoughts.


For those who have their license and access to a car, drive. Turn your music up or ride in silence, take a drive to nowhere, and find your way back. In my opinion everyone should do this around their area at least once, you may be surprised by the views you'll find so close to home that you never knew about.


Believe me, I'm pretty lazy as well, but it is truly a good feeling once you know it was a good workout. When you've worked up the sweat and your muscles ache the next day, that's a good feeling.

I hope you find yourself moving out of bed and devoting yourself to something that isn't always a nap. Napping isn't always the best thing to do for your health. Yes, sleeping too much is bad.

So, get yourself up and moving, feeling good!

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.
