College Girls, Here Are 5 Podcasts That Are Guaranteed To Encourage You

Your commute just got a whole lot more exciting.


Typically, I have a bit of a morning commute and when you are by yourself, that commute can get a tad bit lonely.

I have found the solution to this and Y'ALL have got to jump on board.


I thought podcasts were something grandmas listened to and that they had no part in my college life.

Well, I am here to admit that I was oh so wrong (and to admit that I am basically a grandma trapped in a 20 year olds body anyways).

I figured that listening to someone talk for a whole hour or so would be pretty boring.

Here's the deal, podcasts are NOT at all boring, and if you stumble upon one that is, then you are listening to the wrong one.

In fact, they have taught me various life lessons throughout the past few months.

Sure, books, articles, Facebook posts, and many other storytelling methods have a way to do just that as well. However, podcasts have a new way of doing this. You can actually hear someone's voice out loud and in the open as they share their stories, interviews, and encouragement.

This is about to sound extremely cliche, but it feels just like someone is hanging out with you. You no longer feel alone and hopefully not alone in your struggles either!

Gals, for all of you wanting to jump on board and start listening to these lovely chats but don't know where to start, I've got a couple suggestions for ya'.

1. The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

HOLY BANANAS, gals. This podcast is going to change your life for the better. Jamie chats about all things from abortion, to religion, to drug addiction, to her new book, as she interviews fellow creatives and anyone willing to share their story. Also, she includes some super upbeat music that is sure to put you in a more upbeat mood on your way to the office.

2. The Glorious In The Mundane

Alright, this podcast is the epitome of inspiring. If you need someone to remind you to relax, take a break, and look for the good in any situation, Christy Nockels is your gal.

3. The Refined Collective Podcast

Kat Harris is a photographer that lives in Brooklyn. She shares bits and pieces of her story and discusses what it's like to be a virgin amidst a society that this is UNHEARD of. You can also catch her interviews with other creatives and be inspired along the way.

4. Girls Night with Stephanie May Wilson

Stephanie was one of the first podcast-ers I started listening to and I just absolutely adored her zeal for life, travel, and the need for community. She dives right into struggles she faced in college and talks a lot about single life and the ways that this season of your life could be used for good! Grab a slice of pizza and join the lovely Stephanie May Wilson in her next conversation!

5. Revelation Wellness

GIRLS. Let's be real. Body image is something that SO many of us struggle with. Without diving way in and discovering the root for all of these negative thoughts about ourselves, we can't heal. HOLY MOLY, it is quite a process. Alisa Keeton knows that healthy doesn't mean a certain number on the scale.

Heck, whether or not you are in college, podcasts are something you have got to jump on board with! Take a second and listen to these words, you won't have a single regret.

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
