What College Students Really Want In Care Packages
Girly Blogger

There is nothing better than checking your phone and receiving that unexpected text message from your campus mail room, saying you have received a package. Our parents, siblings, and relatives usually try their hardest to put together the best care package, but sometimes stray from what we actually want. Here are 8 things college students really want in care packages:

1. Comfort food

When you're up until all hours studying or stressing, all any college student wants is their favorite snack.

2. Healthy food

As much as I love junk food, it gets old after constantly eating it. It's hard to eat healthy in college and I would much rather bring a granola bar to class than a bag of chips.

3. Tea/hot chocolate

A hot drink before bed is enough to remind you of home!

4. Gift cards

Gift cards keep you from spending money on things you don't need and give you a reason to treat yourself.

5. Socks

After doing a couple loads of laundry at college, you will probably have half of the socks you started with. Bonus points if you send your college student fuzzy socks during winter.

6. Cold medicine

Stress and sleep deprivation have a way of impairing your immune system, making most college students get sick.

7. Fuzzy blanket

Sleeping in a dorm room during a snowstorm is almost equivalent to sleeping outside. Any college student would love another blanket, especially if it smells like home.

8. ChapStick

Because who can actually keep track of their ChapStick until it runs out?

No matter what you send, you really can't go wrong with a care package.

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
