What does a college student do when they want to be anywhere but in class? Pin to your travel board of course!

What does a college student do when they want cute new clothes but cannot afford them? Pin outfits to your clothes board that you will *definitely* buy when you get your next paycheck, after rent and food and other necessary things, silly.

And what does a college student do when they are sitting on the couch wishing they had a beach bod? Pin 30-day "bikini butt" challenges to their workout board, duh.

If you ever want to get to know a girl, go to her Pinterest, it will never fail because let's be real ladies, you live vicariously through your boards. Here are a few you most likely have if you have ever even clicked on the Pinterest link:

1. The Clothes Board

This is where all the cute outfits you hope to strut your stuff in around campus goes. Or maybe the 78 business professional outfits that you pinned after starting to adult. That, or the adorable joggers you saw that one girl wearing in your econ class last Tuesday.

2. The Jewelry Board

This is a *hint hint* board for boyfriends, but also where you pin the cute J.Crew earrings that you need to complete the look on your clothes board.

3. The Makeup Board

So mine happens to be makeup and nails, but generally speaking, this board is full of products that are too expensive, blendings that is just FAR too much work, or brows that are just absolutely killing the game.

4. The Travel Board

All those aesthetically pleasing pictures of people traveling to the wonderfully exotic and incredibly beautiful places, yeah this is their home. For all the hundred and one travel destinations on your bucket list, pin them here so when you get there, you know how to take your pictures. (also a great board to go to when you are tired of staring at your dorm walls and are feeling unmotivated.)

5. The Wedding Board

Yeah, so funny story, I have had my wedding planned for about five years now, sorry future man. I hope you're okay with navy suits and bow ties! This one is full of lace trims and perfectly placed diamonds, and cute grooms crying because they see their brides for the first time.

6. The Dorm Board

Alright, but are you even a college student if you don't have a board with about 450 different dorm rooms that are most likely completely different layouts than yours, but, hey — those lights are cute!

7. The Beauty DIY Board

This one is full of all those mildly sketchy, or completely edible, or smoothie-esque facemasks or the million different ways that you use coconut oil to solve world peace (and split ends).

8. The Tattoos Board

Sorry mom and dad, I promise I will make it in a place that you cant see it. But I will also probably not tell you until after I do it. And if or when I do decide to permanently tattoo my body with art, I promise it will be meaningful and won't have skulls or blood.

9. The Cute Babies & Cute Boys Board

THIS IS MY FAVORITE. All the cute toddlers with messy hair and messy hands and messy faces find their home on this board. My kids will have the best throwback Thursday pictures to post one day because of the inspiration from this board.

10. The Hair Board

When scrolling down this board you can also see a progression of times I thought I wanted to chop my hair, or had an itch to die it something crazy. Also around the time for dances or formals, you will see plenty of up-dos that I attempted and drastically failed.

11. The Quotes Board

This board also does a great job showing progression. Mood progression, that is. You can see post-breakups, pre-confidence, in-love-with-Jesus, and i-wish-i-was-funny quotes. This is used when you need something cute to post on twitter or need a new header post or desktop wallpaper.

12. The Workout Board

For all the times that we have been motivated to hit the gym and get the best body possible, this board is for you. For all the times I have actually followed a workout on this, instead of just resorting to run a few miles, this is especially for you.

13. The Cute Animals Board


The ultimate board for all things fluffy with little paw and jelly rolls. I mean come on! The chubbs! This board gets special attention when you're missing your four-legged furry friend back in the hometown.

14. The Prom Board

Shoutout to all those glitzy dresses that only made their debut on this board, because no matter how hard you searched, you could never find them in your price range. Though from high school, this board will never be deleted.

15. The DIY Board

Last but not least, here is the recollection of all those times that you wanted to DIY anything and everything on Fixer Upper or the decorations in that one cute magazine. Will you ever make any of them? Probably not. Is it nice to think maybe one day you'll have that cute DIY coffee table in your living room? Most definitely.

Making a Decision: an Indecisive Guide

To all the indecisive people out there: you are not alone

236
views

I am the queen of indecision. For me, making a choice will have me frantically calling both of my parents, asking all of my friends' advice and postponing all studying until the decision is made. Of course, this is because I do not want to make a choice that I regret – such as the time I decided that starting my job at 6:30 am would be a good idea, or the time when I scared my friends with how hyper I was after drinking both coffee and Boba tea. Yet when I take this caution of making the wrong choice too far, the decision-making process itself ends up being regrettable. So much so that I called my mom approximately seven times this weekend to ask her advice on a decision. So much so that my brother used an example of me not being able to choose what kind of shoe I should wear in his article.

This weekend, I was presented with two amazing opportunities to make a difference in the world this summer and I entered a stage of decision paralysis that I did not know was possible. No matter which angle I looked at each situation from, they both would provide me with a phenomenal experience, and would both require sacrifices. Despite not (as of yet) reaching a concrete decision, I learned a lot about the decision-making process and what to do in the next time I am faced with a difficult choice. So, in the spirit of finding summer jobs, gearing up to register for classes and deciding what on earth we want to do with our futures, here are the tips and tricks that I would follow to make the best decision that you can.

Don't overthink it.

dg.imgix.net

Really, this goes without thinking! Or, unlike most of us, it goes with a LOT of thinking! Seriously though, if you overthink things, they will turn into a pudding mush in your brain until you don't know what you don't know anymore. There is a very fine line between thinking through all your options and overthinking them – and judging by the number of times I called my mom this weekend, definitely crossed it.

Always use the pro-con list

Giphy

Ah, the Gilmore Girls. Not only did you inspire me to read every single book under the sun or have a witty conversation full of cultural references no one else understands, but you also taught me the beauty of the pro-con list. Choosing what you want can be messy and difficult to find because of the fears you might have. distinguish from the fears. Writing it all down on paper can often illuminate the right decision and show you which path is ultimately better.

Decide on your make-or-break factor

Sometimes even the best pro-and-con lists will not be enough and will leave you in a frantic analysis ("should I go for the decision with 3 cons or 3.5 cons?") When even the Gilmore method fails, fear not! Consider which factors you truly do not want to compromise on and go from there. This can mean that even the worse decision may be the right one for you.

Trust your gut

i.ytimg.com

As much as it is difficult to dig through your feelings to find your true motives behind a decision, your gut can sometimes tell you what you are most passionate about and therefore what decision is best for you to take. As my Emory Reads friends tell me, passion trumps everything. Choosing which decision aligns with your values will often lead you to make the best and most-satisfying decision.

But trust your head as well

d3i6fh83elv35t.cloudfront.net

But your gut can't always be trusted. It can lie to you, and when you overthink too much, it can change its mind. Your gut feeling may be one that is furthermore borne out of fear of the other option. In that way, I have made many a good decision based on the pure basis of rationality. Using only our heart to make important decisions allows fear to be one of the factors, whereas looking at the decision rationally can help you see the ultimate path.

Ask around

images.pexels.com

When I am puzzled about making a risky decision, I often consult the people in my life who are on my side and want the best for me. These people can help you gauge what your heart truly desires, bring up factors that you haven't considered and even act as a support network for you while making this decision. When your mind kicks into over-analysis, sometimes a fresh perspective is all you need to truly make a confident choice. Decisions are hard, people. Don't make them on your own.=

Don't ask everyone

images.pexels.com

There is such a thing as consulting others to make an important decision, and there is such a thing as relying on them to make your decision. If you ask too many people from too wide a pool, you'll end up having opinions for and against what you are proposing, which means that someone will always be disappointed in your decision. The bottom line is, asking too many people for their opinions is frustrating, no matter what – whether they have contradicting opinions, or they just nod their heads and go "hmmm, tough choice" (thanks, I guess?). In order to avoid frustration, consult the people in your life who know you the best and are dearest to you, rather than the stranger in front of you in line for fries at the DUC.

"Would my dad be proud?"

images.pexels.com

Or your granddad, or your mom, or your professor, or even a TV character. Whoever you know whose morals you can measure your decision up to will often provide reason and illumination. If the decision you are making is not too wild and you feel that you will have their approval, then it is likely not detrimental.

Stick with your decision!

images.pexels.com

Resolutely make up your mind and refuse to turn back. Exercise your right as a free individual to make a choice for yourself, and then do not second-guess it. Please don't do what I did and email a company two days later saying you've changed your mind. Please.

There is not always a right decision

images.pexels.com

Sometimes both decisions you are presented with have different but equally good opportunities. In that case, lucky you! You have two amazing opportunities and therefore cannot mess up. Rather than stressing that you are picking the wrong choice, know that you cannot go wrong in either.

Realize you will grow no matter what

images.pexels.com

Decision-making should be viewed as a challenge and a privilege rather than a burden. Make big, bold and beautiful decisions. Making up your mind can lead to a phenomenal experience that you will adore or a difficult experience that will only fashion you into a better person. Positive consequences can come out of any decision, even if we land in an upsetting position. Each choice we make can positively contribute to our character, fashioning us into the person we are becoming, day by day.


By the time this article is published, I will know my decision. And hopefully, by the end of this article, you will know yours. Let's continue to make decisions courageously, following both our heads and our hearts. Let's be determined to grow through our decisions, realizing that we have made the best choice we could, and never looking back.
