Take up some fun and trendy hobbies that allow you to surface your inner child!

Trendy And Destressing Hobbies For Busy College Students

If you want to find different ways to unwind other than the usual trips to the gym, or occasional shopping sprees, then there are definitely a number of creative hobbies you can take up in the comfort of your own bedroom. These hobbies are creative, playful, and stress-relieving. Plus, they don't involve much movement! ;)

1. Bullet Journaling

This is a fun way to practice organization and keep track of all your dates and deadlines. It's pretty much just like any other day-planner, only all the pages are based on a bullet-grid system. You create each page in its own unique way. Create lists of ideas, things to do, things to buy. Make lists of how much money you spend that week. Draw silly sketches on some of the pages, or make some of the pages your own personal diary entries. There are no rules!

2. Hand-lettering

Invest in some nice markers at Michael's, and a nice sketchbook that doesn't let markers bleed through the pages, and you can dive into this fun hobby that involves a trendy and easy form of writing that is very similar to calligraphy. Look up some Pinterest pictures of alphabets and quotes that have been hand-lettered, and practice on your sketchbook! This is a fun hobby that allows you to practice in your own home.

3. Start a Blog

Whether it's a fashion or make-up blog on Instagram, or a more personal page of prose and musings on Blogger, starting a blog can be a great way to share your interests with the world! It allows you to practice using your own voice while you communicate your thoughts and ideas. If you are someone who has specific interests in something trendy, or you enjoy writing in a journal, then starting a blog could be a great hobby for you. See where it goes!

4. Coloring Books

Take a trip to your local Target or Michael's, and stock up on some fun coloring books for adults! You can get mantra books, or different themed books. This activity can be very grounding, as it forces you to focus on the task at hand. It's meditative and restorative, especially for the mind if you are dealing with a lot of overbearing thoughts and anxiety.

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.
