The Top Essential Oils You Need To Survive College

So here's the skinny -- college is HARD, and like it or not, you'll most likely be having lots of late nights and stress and anxiety caused by upcoming assignments you SWORE you'd start on yesterday. And I get it, there's a lot of helpful remedies and things you can do to reduce that, but I've recently discovered the goodness that is essential oils and y'all, they are amazing and seem to work the best for me out of everything else I've tried. Here are the top oils you won't catch me shipping off to college without this year, and you shouldn't leave without throwing them in your bag either!

Lavender - To relieve stress and help you sleep.

Sandalwood - To improve your focus and eliminate brain fog.

Peppermint - Boosts your energy.

I like to diffuse this one while getting ready in the morning! Especially after a long night studying.

Ylang-Ylang - To help you get to sleep.

Orange - To boost your mood and help alleviate stress.

Your roommate will thank you. Trust me.

Rosemary - To clear up that brain fog!

Grapefruit - Increase energy, boost your mood, and reduce stress.

Eucalyptus - Relieves symptoms of a cold!

Vanilla - Boost your mood, calm your nerves, and serve as an antidepressant.

Bergamot - Reduce anxiety, boost your mood, and help you sleep.

If you're new to the idea of essential oils, it can be a little bit intimidating being that there are SO many with SO many benefits, so hopefully this list will help you narrow it down. Don't be afraid to try out new oils and see what they do for you, either! Get your diffuser and oil starter kit here!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
