10 Grad Cap Ideas For The Indecisive College Graduate

As I'm writing this article, my graduation date is exactly one month away. My roommate and I have been discussing how we want to decorate our graduation caps. The problem: we both have absolutely no idea. Even Pinterest hasn't been able to help us! So what do you do when you have a million ideas? Well, hopefully I can help you decide.

1. An inspirational quote

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/Abc_AKq-iUBuzVG5bOlgS1SpdWeBV9irwokyjzF4qSPITBp_BSCmquI/

Everyone has a quote that means something to them. It could be from a book, a show/movie, or even a celebrity. If you have good penmanship that makes it even better. This will also leave your design more open for personal details. You can add flowers, a border, glitter, rhinestones, whatever you want!

2. A pun

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/46936021095928060/

If you want something a bit less serious, go for something with a joke. There are plenty of graduation and college puns to be made. If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you could go with "Game of Loans." Getting your bachelors of science? "I'm done with with B.S." Just because you have a degree, doesn't mean you have to be serious about it.

3. Something Disney

Who doesn't love Disney? Just pick your favorite movie and there's probably a graduation cap design you can use.

4. Be honest

College is expensive, there's no use hiding it. Your school may have gotten all of your money but at least you can stick it to them one last time.

5. Show off your fandom pride

The Office, Friends, Harry Potter, Star Wars, there's a chance your apart of some nerdy fandom. Whether you're a closeted fan or full-on obsessed, now is your time to let your flag fly.

6. A shout-out

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/506021708120988033/

Of course, you could always say thank you to your biggest supporters. Whether that's mom and dad, your dog, or Starbucks, it's never a bad idea to show a little gratitude.

7. Something with your major

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AUANjNObk59r9SfR2PzkVUUscx2Cxv7cyOjI0kVI2P66XGT4Ml8ywN8/

You've worked hard to get your degree, you should be proud of it! From accounting to zoology, show off all your hard work with an homage to your field of study.

8. BFF caps

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/124200902206314131/

Who needs friendship bracelets when you could have matching degrees? This works especially well if you and you best friend are in the same college, and even better if you can snag seats next to each other.

9. School pride

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/340303315567203636/

If you can't pick your own theme (or you just really love your university) you can always show off your school spirit with your team's colors.

10. When in doubt: throw some glitter on it

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/462604192957513283/

You can never go wrong with a little sparkle.

Whether your already set up with a job after school or you still have no idea what you're doing with your life, this is your day! So, don't stress if you can't come up with a graduation cap idea, because this is just the beginning, my dear. You've got the rest of your life to figure things out.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
