10 Crucial Items To Keep In Your Bag For This Semester

As a college student myself I've learned to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

10 Crucial Items To Keep In Your Bag For This Semester

When I was an incoming freshman, I had no idea what to pack in my bag. Now as I enter into my sophomore year, I'm determined to be more prepared than ever.

Here is a list of 10 must-have items to keep in your bag this semester that are not only cheap, but practical...

1. Mini Umbrella


I don't know about you, but I'm not trying to get soaked in a rainstorm.

2. Portable Charge


You are going to need to one of these, especially if your phone battery dies quickly.

3. Planner


I wish you luck remembering all your due dates without one of these. LOL!

4. Hand Sanitizer


The last thing you want is to be sick; especially if you are away from home.

5. Headphones


FYI: I definitely suggest listening to White Noise while studying.

6. Floss


For all those times you find yourself having food in your teeth right before a presentation...

7. Ibuprofen


I don't know about you, but I can't concentrate with a headache.

8. Gum


Studies do say that chewing gum leads to better focusing.

9. Snacks


Because who can honestly afford campus prices for the same snacks you can bring from home or even your dorm?

10. A Campus Map


Whether you want to admit it or not you will get lost at least once during the semester.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
