19 Signs You Might Be A Granola Girl

If you like coffee, own a hammock, and hike at least once a month, you might be granola.

First of all, "Granola" is not just a trend or hobby — it’s a way of #life. Just kidding, no true Granola would use a hashtag, we only use lower case lettering and periods in our Instagram posts. We have to keep up the ~ aesthetic ~

But seriously, you probably all clicked on this asking yourself what the heck does “Granola,” mean. Is it a noun, is it an adjective? Well, you’ve come to right place, because I think once I’ve explained it, some of you might come to your senses and realize… “Dang, that’s me.”

This term is defined in Urban Dictionary as “a new-age/more civilized hippie,” and my friend explained this is a term to describe all of us who show off their hiking-Instagram-worthy camp counselorness! If you’re still not sure whether you fall into this category, check the list below.

You might be granola if...

1. You have an arm full of friendship bracelets, pony tail holders, and a watch

2. You have a small tattoo, probably in a language other than English.

3. You wear small delicate jewelry, because you want to show you care... but not TOO much.

Gotta get that ring stack.

4. You are in possession of around 4-5 cloth headbands, preferably with a cool pattern.

We'll take one in every color, please.

5. Your refillable water bottle and laptop are decked out in stickers from the three camps you’ve counseled at as well as the 6 mountains you climbed last summer.

6. Your backpack has key chains galore.

7. You own a pair of Chacos and those babies are worn out.

8. You drink coffee and talk about it, like, alllllll the time.

Like I can't even describe how much Granola's like coffee.

9. Your Instagram is full of landscape photos from your adventures.

10. You own a scratch off map with all the places you’ve traveled to.

11. You have a Polaroid camera for all the artsy pics you’ll get against walls and such.

12. You have a cliff bar stuffed into every bag you own... just in case.

13. You’ve thought about starting a blog, or have one and write on it religiously.

14. You have a hammock that you use every day, of every week.

15. You own a succulent that you’ve personally named.

16. You listen to ‘Mumford and Sons’ on repeat.

17. You visit your farmer’s market every weekend.

18. You know exactly when the next food/music festival’s coming near you.

19. You never go anywhere without your favorite flannel.

Obviously, this was all in good-fun and I wouldn’t be able to list these traits possessing them myself. So, what do you think? Are you granola? Are Granolas the new hipsters? We shall see. In the meantime, I’m going to journal in my Eno while drinking an iced coffee.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
