In the midst of midterms, it's all too easy to let the stress control your life. You can't really be yourself when the number of espresso shots drank in one day is inversely proportional to the number of hours slept in one night. In this zombie-like state, floating from lecture to library and directly to bed, every ounce of humanness and uniqueness in you needs to shine more than ever. And the easiest way to show your personality, without even needing to crack a smile at the other sad students around you, is to decorate your laptop and water bottle with personalized stickers. On redbubble.com, they're cheap, well-made, and always on sale (buy 5, get them all 50% off!). Even better, since they're designed by website members, there are myriad designs to suit your every need. Here are some ideas to get your laptop/sticker scrapbook started.

Band stickers

As you can see on my own laptop (above), I have band stickers from five of my favorite artists: the Black Keys, Explosions in the Sky, Ben Howard, the xx, and Death Cab for Cutie. Additionally, on my water bottle (not pictured) I display Led Zeppelin and Childish Gambino stickers.

TV show stickers

You like the Office? There are stickers for that. You like Parks and Rec? There are stickers for that. You like Friends? There are stickers for that, too. Don't let yourself be limited - a laptop sticker with an inside joke from your favorite show is a great icebreaker at the library, cafe, or in class.

Movie stickers

On that note, you might want to display your favorite movie to the world - an equally good, if not better, conversation starter as television shows.

Hometown pride

On my laptop, I mark my new home that I've made in California, but I proudly show off my New Jersey roots on my water bottle. There are stickers from Redbubble for all 50 states, but I got my Calif sticker from the brand Never Elsewhere for free!

Your university

Although Redbubble has plenty of universities represented on the site, your school's bookstores or local artists are sure to be selling stickers, too! On my laptop I have a sticker designed by a Cal alum, shown above and below.

Organizations you're a part of


Free (well, cheap) advertising for your club! Some organizations, like fraternities and sororities, may provide you with their own (see my laptop - my ZTA sticker!), but other organizations are shown on sites like Redbubble.

Events you've attended / Places you've been

On my laptop, you'll see that I display a sticker from Gov Ball, a music festival in New York City; on the Berkeley campus, it's really common to see Coachella stickers. Feel free to show off your favorite place in the whole world, may it be the beach, the mountains, or a city. Certain businesses, like cafes or tattoo parlors, have stickers by the cash register for your taking (or purchase)!


Your major / Your field of study

A club on campus dedicated to my major, Molecular and Cellular Biology, sells stickers that I have happily purchased for my computer. But you can also find stickers related to your academic or research interests.


Cool designs

Some stickers are just pretty! Get out there and express yourself. If you're looking to support a local artist (instead of Redbubble), these are much more common. On my laptop, I have four Chevron-style stripes that were meant for my bike, but I thought looked nice on my laptop.


Other stuff you like

Show off your favorite actors, your favorite animals, your favorite chemicals (I had caffeine on my laptop until just last week!), or even your favorite foods - or even some combination of these, as shown below. The options are really almost limitless. Get creative and enjoy your form of self expression!

A Letter To My Best Friend On Graduation Day

What are you suppose to say to your best friend on graduation day?

Have you ever heard of a fairy tale? Where two people meet and then everything else seems to fall into place. Well here’s how this one started: two little girls in preschool, sitting in a little room, with other little people. The teacher comes over and starts to hand out frosted cookies and bunny coloring pages for us all. Somehow, somewhere in here, the two little girls became best friends.

Now, I don’t want to tell you some fairy tale story, because fairy tales aren’t really true, right? So here’s what I really want to tell you.

What do you say? I mean really, what are you supposed to say to someone whom you’ve known for almost 15 years? And this someone isn’t just anyone. This someone is your best friend. Someone you’ve gotten used to seeing every day during the week. Someone you looked forward to seeing every day. What do you say?

Well, I guess I can start off by saying thank you. Thank you for being there when I needed someone to just listen. It doesn’t matter where we are in this world or in our lives, I know you will always be there to listen. As I will always be the same for you. Thank you for always being my best supporter. Thank you for not judging me for my sometimes poor decision-making skills. Thank you for late-night conversations. Thank you for remembering every inside joke we have ever created. And I mean every joke! Even if I don’t always remember them. Thank you for being brutally honest with me when I am being ridiculous.

Thank you for respecting my values and opinions, even if you disagree. Thank you for loving my family like you love your own. Thank you for fighting all of life’s battles by my side. Thank you for celebrating all of the exciting moments of my life with me and the many more to come. Thank you for forgiving me every time I might not have been the best friend in the entire world. Thank you for all you’ve taught me, even if you didn’t realize it at times. Thank you for always sharing your crazy stories with me. Thank you for being there through all of the significant others that I have mistakenly chosen. Thank you for listening to my long stories as though you haven’t already heard them a million times. Thank you for being strong when I was weak. Thank you for sharing your secrets with me, and for keeping mine. Thank you for sharing the past fourteen and a half years of your life with me. Thank you.

I honestly cannot believe that high school is over and soon we will both be going our separate ways in life. It’s hard to fathom that we won’t live a few houses down from each other anymore. Only on weekends when we are home from college. It’s going to be tough, but it’s OK. Because I know that no matter where we go in life, whether it’s a quarter mile away from each other or halfway across the world, you’ll always be my best friend. I’ll never come across someone who will be able to take your spot as my best friend. We’ve just got to remember that even though we change and we are both finding our own places in this world, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we’re not still best friends. Later on in life I know I’m going to be able to look back and remember that you were the one who lifted my head when I was losing faith in myself. I know I’m going to remember how you were that one person who knew who I really was. Most importantly, I know I’m going to remember that you were that one person who made the biggest difference in my life.

There really aren't enough words to even begin to describe how much you mean to me. We have the highest expectations for each other and I know that you will be successful in anything you choose to do. Writing this to you is hard, because honestly, I’m scared to admit how truly sad I am to know this will be the end of school with you. There are so many things that I will miss about you next year, from how much of an angel you were to your contagious smile. There’s no one else who can make me laugh so hard that my sides actually begin to kill with pain. I’m going to miss the countless hours we would spend playing Mario Kart and Wii Fit. I’m going to miss you sitting in my kitchen eating cookie after cookie. While you may be one of the craziest individuals that I have ever met in the last 14-and-a-half years of my life, I know you will always be making others laugh if you’re not there making me laugh.You always manage to light up a room. You’ll forever be the life of the party and you never fail at making everything interesting.

It’s going to be hard not being able to run up to each other every day and share our crazy stories or rant about something that just happened during the previous class. I know there will be times after a long day of classes or work when I wish I could just head over to your house, plop down on your bed in your room and play Mario Kart while we talk about our day. I want you to know that whatever happens, whoever you become and whoever the future shapes you to be, I will always be here for you. Whether a drive or a phone call away, I will always be here. We may not be able to spend the next few years seeing each other every day, but I know that you will make a huge impact on those who meet you in the time to come.

The past 14-and-a-half years of my life have been fantastic. I want to thank you for simply being the person you are and for letting me have the honor of being your best friend. I will see you up on that stage when we sit there in the gym at Carrabec High School for the last time together. As soon as we march out that door, you can bet that I will be the first one to run up to you and hug you, and probably cry, and tell you that we made it. Here’s to an amazing future and to a lifelong friendship.

Back to the fairy tale thing for a moment. Now that I think of it, I don’t see why I called our friendship in the beginning a fairy tale. Fairy tales have happy endings, right? Well, our friendship may be a happy one, but it will never have an ending.
