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!

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.
