So many ideas, but only one cap.

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
