5 Things You Need For A Perfect Girls' Night

I know what you may be thinking, Girls' Night? Really? Yes, really! In this day and age those of us in college attempting to establish ourselves in the adult world, life can come at us so fast. Personally, between work, school, clubs, staying healthy, and internships it's sometimes hard to remember that self-care is important.

Friendships feed the soul. Although our significant others and family both have our best interests at heart there few people who truly understand you on the level your girlfriends do. So while going out is always a good time, sometimes staying in could be exactly what you've been needing. Here are the top 5 essentials for the perfect night in:

1. Snacks


As the poised beautiful creature's women are we know how to put up a front but we all know the truth. Food is everything! So when I say snacks I don't mean the gluten-free, salt-free, joy-free foods you eat daily. I'm talking about popcorn, pizza, gummy bears, ice cream, etc. Basically, anything that sends your diet running for the hills.

2. Wine


Women. Love. Wine. Period. There's not much else to say, wine makes women happy. So make sure you have your cutest glasses and the Rosé chilled and ready to go. But for those who opt out of the rosé make sure they have their own fabulous alcohol free options such as "mimosas" made with orange juice and sparkling cider.

3. Face Masks


Who said you can't have a good time and take care of your skin at the same time? Face masks not only are an essential part of skin care but they also can be so much fun. A few favorites of mine include the Glamlow GRAVITYMUD™ Firming Treatment at Sephora, Miss Spa 24K Gold Mask at Ulta, and Shea Moisture Raw Shea butter Hydrating Mud Mask at Walmart.

4. The Perfect Movie


Nothing is better than watching a classic with your girls; it's also the perfect pass time while your face masks set! Here are a few of the forever favorites: Clueless, The Notebook, Mean Girls, Bridesmaids, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.

5. A Killer Playlist


Listen, as middle school as it may sound dance parties will always be a thing; especially after three glasses of rosé. Let loose! There are few feelings that are as satisfactory as dancing, especially dancing with your besties. Spotify has millions of playlists for every mood, here are a few to consider for your next girl's night: Girls' Night by Spotify, Bad B*tches Only by Maren Emilie Rue, and Girls Night Out Playlist Girls Night Out Playlist by Fallon Bates.

All in all, Girl's Night is so much more than getting drunk with your best friends; it's creating memories that you will last a lifetime. Some of my most fond memories are the ones where I'm at home surround by my girls laughing so hard my eyes start watering. So pull out your phone, text your girls, and start planning your next Girl's Night!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
