5 Back To School Must-Haves Every Successful College Student Needs For Their Best Year Yet

Well, it's that time again, and it came so much faster than all of us could have expected! This season of quarantine has truly been a bummer, and what better way to get over the corona blues than to go school shopping?!

I know, school shopping probably isn't everyone's favorite time of year, but quarantine has gotten me excited to get back to school. Whether you're entering your first year of college or your last, here are some must-haves for college students going back to school!

This Fringe Studio Weekly Perpetual Planner

Nordstrom

If you're like me at all, then you are probably SUPER forgetful, especially when life gets crazy. Getting a planner gives you a place to write down all of your plans, homework assignments, and anything else you might need to organize in your daily life.

This is probably the most important part of getting ready for school because COVID-19 has thrown lots of curveballs. Hopefully, a planner will help you stay ahead so you never miss a deadline amongst the craziness!

$18

Fringe Studio's Set Of 2 Monogram Floral Slim Mini Journals

Nordstrom

This one seems like a no-brainer, but without fail, there are always people asking to use some paper in the middle of class.

Personally, I like to go the notebook route and grab a five subject one so that all of my notes are in one book, but buying one for each class and then color coding is just as effective.

It's all about what will help you out the most when being organized!

$10

This Hydroflask 32-Ounce Wide Mouth Cap Bottle

Nordstrom

Staying hydrated is just as important as studying hard. That is why I'm including a water bottle on this list! Drinking water helps to improve focus while in the classroom, so try to have water with you in every class, and find a COVID safe way to fill it up between classes.

After a little while, you'll find that focusing in class is a little bit easier than before!

$45

Lexon's Fine Tube Power Bank Portable Charger

Nordstrom

Part of being a college student is having devices available for all your school (and social) needs. Keeping a portable charger in your backpack will ensure that you never run out of battery while studying or making plans with others.

$25

Kate Spade New York's Gold Stripe Pen Set

Amazon

Last, but certainly not least, to be successful this year, you'll need writing utensils! Now, I tend to get as many colors as I can in order to color code everything.

However, getting a nice set or two of pens that are all one color should be enough for anyone. There's something about new pens that get me excited to get into the classroom and learn.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
