I'm Obsessed With Red Bubble Stickers And You Probably Are Too

I'm Obsessed With Red Bubble Stickers And You Probably Are Too

I have no shame.

Stickers. I am obsessed with stickers. Like most college students, the most important thing about coming to college was choosing stickers to put on my laptop.

My sticker obsession started with the Jolyn swim company, whose swim suits have a sticker as a tag. I began my obsession with one water bottle, and now I can confidently say I have five water bottles completely decked out in stickers. Stickers are used to represent my life and my beliefs, or really anything I find funny.

Thanks to Red Bubble and their buy 10 get them all 1/2 off deal, means that I always have to order stickers in groups of 10. This also means that whenever I need to procrastinate, the first place I look to is Red Bubble. My cart is fully loaded at all times. With currently 107,676 options of stickers, it's truly hard to even choose 10. After realizing that I do indeed have too many water bottles and my laptop case is full, I have moved on to putting stickers on my dorm room printer. You could say I'm a little obsessed. After being questioned many times about my love for stickers, I have finally figured out why I am drawn to stickers.

Stickers, wherever you may put them, reveal your personality.

Whether it's a state sticker or a quote from The Office, you get to know someone by their stickers. My favorite thing to do in the library or dining hall is looking around and reading everyone else's stickers. Seeing someone else with the same sticker is a small connection.

Stickers also show where you've been and where you want to go. They show places you gone and experiences you have. For instance, they can show countries you've been to or cool adventures you have been on. One of my favorite types of stickers are song quotes. Knowing that someone has the same taste in music as you or is obsessed with the exact same song, is an indescribable feeling. My song stickers include quotes from various artists such as Drake, Khalid, and Chance the Rapper.

After committing to Villanova, the first thing I did was spend about an hour on Red Bubble trying to choose what Villanova stickers to add to my water bottles.

The Basics Of Hygge, To Help You Get Your Groove On

We are VERY overdue for a cozy intervention!

Hygge What is it?

A term you’ve probably seen plastered over countless Pinterest boards and featured in this New Yorker article, “hygge, (pronounced hoo-guh) is a Danish term used to explain the feeling of contentment, well-being, and coziness. Though it has no true English translation, it’s gained massive popularity over the past few years.

Winter is the most hygge time of the year. This concept is all about the warm and fuzzy side of life: cozy slippers, roaring fireplaces, and soft blankets. But it’s so much more than that. It can be found in a cup of tea, while sitting with loved ones, or inside the crackling of a candle wick.

Adding warmth to your life is simpler than you think. I wrote this hygge-inspired article for an introduction to sprucing up your bedroom. If you want to make any space a bit cozier and content, add fuzzy pillows, soft rugs, softly dimmed string lights, and a couple of close friends (or your pet!).

Most importantly, hygge focuses on the present. Today, we’re drowning under a siege of notifications and it seems that our surrounding technology is inescapable. “But what about my followers?” Uhh, do you remember your real friends? As much as our lives do center around technology, we’re doing nothing but good when we take a break from technology. Put down the phone, power down your laptop, and enter the present. Curl up with a good book by the fire. Go to dinner with your family. Have a tech-free game night. Little things throughout the day can make you feel more connected without feeling like you NEED your phone.

This warm and fuzzy concept isn’t new, but platforms like Pinterest and Facebook have made it more accessible to the masses.

With so many holistic concepts like natural medicine and clean eating entering the mainstream, it’s no wonder that this Danish concept has gained so much popularity. It’s almost as is society is reverting back to a simpler time, which in my opinion, can do nothing but good.

Hygge helps us stay present, centered, and focused so that we can advance and better ourselves without forgetting the things that really matter. It’s so much more than blankets and lights.
