7 Reasons Why I Love T-Shirts

7 Reasons Why I Love T-Shirts

Stop judging me for wearing what I love.

T-shirts are my first choice, my go-to and my treasured possession. They have so many color choices and there are an endless amount of designs on them. They are the most comfortable thing in the world and come in an endless amount of styles and brands. They are the absolute best thing to wear anywhere. I can't imagine having to actually dress nice everyday if I didn't have T-shirts.

1. They are easy.

If I wake up late in the morning and I'm running late to class, a T-shirt is the first thing that I grab to wear. Just throw on a T-shirt and run out the door. Simple as that.

2. There are tons of different color choices.

T-shirts come in a variety of colors and designs. There are tons of brands to choose from (Shout out to Comfort Colors for being my top choice!) There are tank tops, long sleeved and the regular short sleeved T-shirt. Whatever the weather for the day, they make a T-shirt for it.

3. They are the best souvenirs.

Any where you go in the world, you will find a souvenir shop selling T-shirts with that city's name on it. Whether it is "I heart NY" or "PCB Spring Break 2016" you can always find a great souvenir to bring home for a friend, family member or even yourself.

4. Lampshading is the best.

Lampshading is wearing a large, oversized t-shirt over a pair of shorts. Lampshading makes parents question whether or not you have pants on and it's the best thing ever. Wearing a huge t-shirt over Norts (Nike running shorts) is the best outfit in the world. Throw on some Chacos and you have perfection.

5. They never judge.

T-shirts never judge you for not wearing makeup. They don't care if you have half a bottle of dry-shampoo in your hair because you didn't wash it the night before. T-shirts are always forgiving and always there for you.

6. My drawers are never empty because of them.

If you're anything like me, you probably have enough T-shirts to wear one every day for a month and not have to wash anything. That comes in handy when you start college and have to start paying to do your laundry instead of having your mom do it every week. I always have a T-shirt to let someone borrow if they need to change for any reason. At any given time my dresser is overflowing with t-shirts.

7. They are affordable.

T-shirts are one of the more affordable clothing options. If you're going to Goodwill, you're bound to find a cheap outfit for that Hicks and Chicks party you were told about last minute. You can always find a sorority selling one for their latest philanthropy event or a fraternity selling their latest rush shirt for less than $20. Simple and cheap is the way to go.

All in all, T-shirts are the best fashion option. I just really wish people would stop judging me for never wearing anything else.

Why Your Grandma Is Your Biggest Blessing In Life

Because nobody loves you more than she does.

There are many people in your life you are thankful for: Mom, Dad, siblings, cousins, best friends, teachers, neighbors, you name it. You are grateful to have people who constantly support you, who pick you up when you're down and love you unconditionally. But the one person who stands out among the rest of them is your grandma.

Ever since you were little, you and your grandma have always had a special connection. Going over to Grandma's house for the night was something you looked forward to. She knew how to entertain you at your best and worst moments. No matter what you did together, you loved it. Being with your grandma wasn't like being at home or with your parents – it was better. You went to the park, made cookies, went out to dinner, got a “sweet treat" at the mall, played Go Fish, took a bubble bath for as long as you wanted and got way too much dessert than you should have. You did things you weren't supposed to do, but Grandma didn't stop you. Because at Grandma's house there were no rules, and you didn't have to worry about a single thing. Being with Grandma was the true epitome of childhood. She let you be you. She always made sure you had the best time when you were with her, and she loved watching you grow up with a smile on your face.

The older you got, your weekend excursions with your grandma weren't as frequent, and you didn't get to see her as much. You became more and more busy with school, homework, clubs, sports, and friends. You made the most out of your time to see her, and you wished you could be with her more. Although you were in the prime of your life, she mattered even more to you the older you both became. You were with your friends 24/7, but you missed being with your grandma. When the time rolled around, and you got the chance to spend time with her, she told you never to apologize. She wanted you to go out, have fun and enjoy life the way it makes you happy.

Reflecting back on these moments with your grandma, you realize how truly special she is to you. There is no one who could ever compare to her nor will there ever be. All your life, there is no one who will be as sweet, as caring, as sincere or as genuine as her. Even though you're all grown up now, there are things about your grandma that never changed from when you were a kid. She still takes you out for your favorite meal because she knows how important eating out means to you. She writes you letters and sends you a $5 bill every now and then because she knows you're a hard-working college student with no money. She still helps you with all of your Christmas shopping because she knows it's your tradition. She still asks what's new with your young life because hearing about it makes her day and she still loves you to no end. Your grandma is your biggest blessing (whether you knew it or not), and she always will be no matter what.

The Many Stages Leading Up To Your 21st Birthday

All birthdays before this one just seem so much less important.


Maybe you're not a college student and maybe you're old enough that when you were in college the drinking age was 18 and this was never an issue. For the rest of us though, currently enduring frat parties and the anxiety of that comes with needing a fake ID to get into a bar, the agony of waiting to for your 21st birthday is something to which we all can relate.

1. You drag yourself to frat parties and pretend they'll be just as fun as the bar.

Making sure your name is on the list prior to being allowed in to a sweaty, decrepit frat house definitely gets old, along with having to endure the taste of stale beer and Franzia. Going to the bathroom alone, with the lack of toilet paper and the realization it has likely never been cleaned comes with its own issues making the agony of not being able to go to the bar instead that much worse.

2. Your stuck watching your older friends celebrate theirs long before you.


Sure, you're excited for them and it's an excuse for you all to celebrate, but you secretly wish it was you. The days of stressing about plans, hoping they would get in, and trying to find other plans if they couldn't are over for them while you're stuck behind wondering how you'll survive the wait.

3. You shop for the perfect outfit for the big night months in advance


While you know it's only one night and you likely won't care what you're wearing once you're out, you obsess over how you'll look the first time you walk in a bar and order your first legal drink. Hours and hours are spent shopping for the perfect outfit. Minor panic ensues over whether you'll be warm enough for the walk there, cool enough for the crowded bar or if you'll suddenly hate what you picked out when it's finally time to wear it.

4. The days seem to be going by slower than usual.


Whenever anyone mentions your birthday is coming up, you can't help but let them know exactly know how many days until it arrives, right down to the hour. It's not like your counting or anything.

5. You stress about how to get the perfect Instagram on the day.


So many thoughts run through your head despite knowing your followers will likely barely glance at your photo as they scroll through their feed: Do I buy those jumbo letter balloons I've seen nearly every other girl pose beside? Can I manage to get a picture of the exact moment I pop the champagne? Is it completely unoriginal to use "twenty fun" in my caption?

6. The day finally arrives.


The wait is over. Wow, that was fast. It suddenly seems ridiculous that you spent so much time obsessing about the time when you could finally order a drink without having to focus on not looking guilty. You secretly hope you'll get carded just so you can let them know that YES you are legal.
