Ladies, You're Lying If You Claim To Not Have These 8 Random Items In Your Car

You'll all understand soon.


When I say random, you may totally agree that these items are the most random ever but, to a girl, they are a part of her car now. Just as necessary as the steering wheel, they have to stay. They're essentials now, okay?

1. All the snacks

I always have an array of snacks hidden around my car. And yes, gum counts. My car is loaded with Goldfish and almonds. My favorite car snack has been Jimmy bars, which are a Chicago-based protein bar company. I like to leave them in the car because I am always hungry when I'm driving, or if I need a snack before the gym.

2. More than one chapstick

This is so normal, and I feel like if you're not a girl, you just won't understand this quirk. There is a system for Chapstick. You have one for every important area of your life (no, seriously). I always forget I have one in the car or in my purse, so I always bring them from my house and end up with 12 chapsticks in my car at a time. Helpful but not the goal.

3. Too many sunnies

I have probably four pairs of sunglasses in my car right now. I like to leave them in my car because I'll either break or lose them from my house out to my car. I leave them all over the car and just decide which one I want to wear based on my mood at that moment. I'm definitely not the only one who does this!

4. Hair ties everywhere

Oh, my god! Every time someone gets into my car they say something about how many hair ties or scrunchies I have all over the place. I'm sorry, but I like to be prepared for whatever I'm going to experience outside of driving my car! There is no harm in having multiple in your car at a time. BUT, I'm going to say if you have over 10, there might probably be a problem with that.

5. Extra chargers

Okay, you definitely can't enough of these in your car. I always forget chargers whenever I go somewhere, and it's nice that I help myself by leaving two or three in my car just in case. I need one for charging in the car while the rest just kind of end up where I do. I also forget them everywhere, so I'm smart enough to be prepared with extra chargers. More times than not, I forget them at a friend's or somewhere.

6. So many water bottles

Okay, I'm really good at using my Hydro Flask instead of plastic water bottles, BUT I do have family and friends that still love plastic water bottles. Somehow my car always has at least one under or in the back seat. My family especially likes the tiny plastic water bottles that are two sips and then "forget" them in my car. Those little guys are so easy to lose and find five months later, UGH!

7. Unnecessary change

LOL, I have a crazy amount of unnecessary change in my car. I really like to pay with exact change when I can because it makes me feel really good and all adult. But, I'm bad at paying with cash, which means the change just sits there and accumulates over time. Sometimes, I need quarters to pay for ISU parking (barf) but, other than that, it just sits there and looks pretty.

8. Something extremely random your mom leaves in your car

Every single time my mom gets into my car, she leaves something. Often times, I find trash on the passenger side of my car and just have to roll my eyes. Gum wrappers, empty coffee cups, or water bottles — I swear I find one of these three things every time she gets out. Usually, just leave it because I'm lazy or I just wait for her to get back into my car to grab it and throw it out herself.

The important thing to remember is, even though these items are indeed random, they're important. I hope y'all have a better understanding of the mind of a young adult lady and her car.

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

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.
