Holiday Gift Guide For College Students

Don't know what to get someone without breaking the bank? Here's a gift guide that caters to college students.

Holiday Gift Guide For College Students

The holidays are here! As a college student, you are probably slightly broke and have a very minimal budget. Even with a tight budget, you can still get quality gifts for the ones you love.

Below is a list of some ideas to get some of the people who matter most in your life. That small budget can still provide some great gifts during the hectic holiday season.

Mom: Make mom something. Moms love those sentimental gifts. When you were younger, you used to make her pasta bracelets and paintings. You can paint her some wine glasses or make a jewelry box.

Dad: Dads are all about jokes. Get him something that he’ll find funny. Don’t forget a goofy card. I recommend ones that sing.

Brother: If you brother likes cars, take him to a car show. If your brother likes movies, take him to the movies. There are many options that you can do for your brother depending on his likes. This is a great way to spend time with him without spending a ton of money.

Sister: Get your sister some cute clothes or jewelry. You don’t have to spend crazy amounts on that type of stuff if you go to Forever 21 or order off of Amazon.

Girl Best Friend: Have any inside jokes? I think gag presents are great. Get something that only you and your friend will understand.

Guy Best Friend: If your guy best friend is a drinker, get him his favorite alcohol. If you feel crafty, decorate it so he can keep it on his shelf.

Grandma: Cook something with your grandmother. If she makes chocolate chip cookies, spend time in the kitchen with her. It’s a great way to bond, and it won’t cost anything!

Grandpa: If your grandpa likes fishing, take him on a fishing trip. I know the weather is chilly, but there are some fish that are caught in the winter. Those memories will be better than any gift money can buy.

Boyfriend: If your boyfriend is a sports lover, get him something that is from his favorite team. Maybe a sweatshirt or a baseball cap. The possibilities are endless when it comes to sports merchandise.

Girlfriend: What does your girlfriend like? If she likes clothing, maybe get her something from her favorite store.

Professor: Feel the need to buy your professor a present? Well, if you feel inclined to do so, why not buy him or her a calendar for the next year? That’s a practical gift they can use all year long, and it won’t break the bank.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
