The Self-Care Kit Every College Student Should Have Handy In 2020

As college students, sometimes life can be overwhelming. Four tests in a week and you only passed one of them? I feel that. Days like that, you just need time for yourself. A time where you're nice to yourself and put your own self-care before anything else.

1. A good playlist

First things first, you need feel-good music. It can be a playlist of your fav songs or just a random Spotify playlist. No matter what it is, music is good for the soul.

2. A book

Reading a book is a great way to destress. Whether you read just a chapter or the whole book, it's a great way to keep your mind off whatever is bothering you that day.

3. Your favorite movie or TV show 

Whenever I need to take a break from school, I go straight to "Grey's Anatomy." With all the drama going on, it's hard to focus on my own problems.

4. Coffee, hot chocolate, or tea

A nice, warm drink is always so calming to me. I love to wrap up in a warm blanket and drink hot chocolate while just letting my mind wander.

5. Bubble bath

A bubble bath with lavender or vanilla is such a fun and easy way to release tension. Essential oils are also really calming and are a great way to help you destress.

6. Candles

I believe the more candles, the better. The smell of apple cinnamon and vanilla always send a wave of calmness over me.

7. A stress ball

For when you just want to punch something. Believe me, I've been there done that. A stress ball is the best way to release tension after a test.

8. A coloring book and pencils

I love coloring in those adult coloring books. They have super intricate designs that cause you to focus solely on your coloring.

9. Yummy snacks

Chocolate, chips, cookie dough, or whatever your guilty pleasure might be — make sure to keep some on deck for those rough days.

10. Cozy clothes

Fuzzy socks, a sweatshirt, your favorite t-shirt, whatever you feel comfy in! This is a day just for you, wear what you want!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

11594

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.
