5 Things Every Girl NEEDS When Going To College

What I have learned from my first year at the University of Kentucky is that there are a few little things that are affordable and will change my college life for good. I was not prepared when I got there, but now that I know what things would've helped me my first year, and I am going to share them with you. If you don't know what you need for college and classes, and you are freaking, read on, I might just have saved you.

1. Water bottle


Decorate you water bottle with stickers that show your personality.

You won't believe how dehydrated a girl gets when learning about statistics or biology. It is so important to always have water on you at all times, especially when you are in an old lecture hall with no air conditioning. It doesn't have to be an expensive water bottle, just something that will keep your water cold during the day.

Simple Modern 18oz Summit Water Bottle - $19.99 on Amazon and at Target

Hydro Flask 18 oz Wide Mouth Water Bottles - $19.99 on FlaskClubShop.com

Gatorade Squeeze 32oz Plastic Water Bottle - $5.99 at Target

2. Razor


Trust me, you are gonna need this one.

Not a cheap, 89 cent razor that you get 10 per pack. If I were you, I would buy a nice razor to keep during the year. It doesn't have to be a 20 dollar razor. I just bought a Flamingo Razor at my local Target for $9.99, and it is the best razor I have ever had.

Billie Razor Starter Kit - $9.99 from Billie

Flamingo Razor - $9.99 at Target

Vera Bradley + Venus Designer Women's Razor Handle + 2 Razor Blade Refills - $12.99 at Target

3. Planner


Make your planner cute with stickers, colored pens, and highlighters.

Don't even get me started on planners. Without a planner, I think I would have missed every advising meeting, professor meeting, and even those dinners that I plan with friends during the week. YOU NEED A PLANNER. It will keep you on track with homework assignments, projects coming up, exams, everything.

2019 Planner 11"x 8.5" White/Gold Diamond - $9.99 at Target

Erin Condren Starry Sky Personalized Academic Planner - $37.00 from Erin Condren

2019-2020 Blue Sky - $9.99 to 19.99 at Staples and Target

4. Heating pad

The heating pad can even be as cute as this avocado.

We both know what this is for. It is not a "maybe I should bring this to college." Girl, don't you dare forget your heating pad or you will be in pain during "that time of the month." Your mom is not going to be around to go fetch your heating pad, so please, I beg you, do not forget to pack this.

Sunbeam Electric Heating Pad with UltraHeat Technology - $14.99 at Walmart

Conair Moist King-Size Heating Pad with Automatic Off - $19.99 at Walgreens

5. Tennis skirt

Tennis skirts can be any color and style. Just pick the one that fits you the best. :)

Look, I know it sounds basic to get a tennis skirt, even I thought that until I bought one. They are so comfortable. Plus, you can look cute going to that class you have with the cute guy from that frat you love. They are so much more flowy and COMFY than a pair now shorts.

Lululemon Women's Play Off The Pleats Skirt 13"-$48.00 to $68.00 in-store or online.

BCG Women's Tennis Skirt-$9.99 in-store or online at Academy Sports and Outdoors

Ideology Women's Tennis Mini Skort-$10.52 on Amazon

Literally, Walmart has cute tennis skirts for cheap.

Founders Of Color: Rec Room's Dre Taylor On What Blackness Can Look Like And Not Working For Free

Rec Room

The world of sustainable fashion is inundated with marketing gimmicks, false advertising, and large corporations cutting corners — Rec Room is the pure antithesis of that.

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.

Not only is a great show, it has so many different great settings, obviously including the loft. If you live by Nick Miller quotes and desperately tried to learn how to play "True American," you need to buy these things because you are a true "New Girl" fan.

Whether you're in a Zoom session or live-chatting, make sure your home therapy space is good to go.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire. Having a safe space to discuss what's going on in your life, worries you have, and struggles you're facing has become a very normal thing for individuals' mental health.
