5 Products That I Couldn't Have Survived This Summer Without
Georgia Burge

Now that Summer 2018 is drawing to a close, I've been thinking back on some of the things that made this summer one of the best ones yet. While the experiences I've had take up the majority of the spots on that list, there are a few physical things that made my sweet summer possible. Here are just a few:

1. PopSocket and PopSocket Car Mount

For the longest time, I had no way to mount my phone for hands-free use while I was driving. That wasn't really an issue until I started having to commute a fair distance for my job. The PopSocket is useful all on its own, but the car mount accessory gives it a whole different use. You can browse PopSockets and their accessories here

2. Hydroflask

I have already expressed my love for my HydroFlask before on this platform (which you can check out here), but I'm happy to share about it again. I doubt that very few, if any, of us drink enough water in a day. But owning a HydroFlask has made it so much easier for me to come close to accomplishing that goal. It almost makes drinking water trendy. You can snag a Hydro of your own here.

3. Trader Joe's Coconut Cold Brew Coffee


Okay, I know this sounds basic, but hear me out. I've never been a big coffee drinker, but it became almost necessary when I started working weird hours at my job. This stuff was super easy to prepare and tasted good enough to get me semi-addicted to it. If you're not a coffee fan but you're looking to ease yourself into the world of coffee, give this a try.

4. Passion Planner

Having a daily planner to organize my weeks was essential in keeping my summer productive and as stress-free as possible. I just received my new Passion Planner for the school year and I am so beyond ready to start using it for my classes.

5. Knock-Off Birkenstocks


Much like probably every other white girl in the entire world, these type of sandals were my go-to footwear for months until I eventually wore them out beyond repair. They go perfectly with almost any summery outfit and are super comfy to boot.

Even though summer is coming to a close, I'm thankful for all the wonderful memories I made and the products that helped me enjoy my summer to the fullest potential!

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
