When it comes to college life, lanyards are a necessity. They're even more important than your phone. They hold your keys, your student ID, your debit card--all the must-haves. There is not a single thing more important to have on you at all times. Not one thing.

Because the lanyard is so extremely essential, it needs to be versatile as well. What if you don't have pockets? What if you don't want to wear it around your neck? Luckily for you, I've compiled nineteen different ways to wear your lanyard so that you're never tempted to leave it behind.


1. In your pocket.

This is my preferred method, as it allows for easy access, but it’s not as useful when you’ve realized that your new pants have fake pockets.


2. In your backpack.

This look is useful in the event that your new pants have fake pockets. You have to make sure to have some of it dangling out, though, so you don't have to go fishing around for it.


3. Wrapped around your hand.

This is the best way to wear your lanyard if you need to use your keys/card right away, but it doesn't allow for great dexterity.


4. Around your neck.

This way is exceptionally useful if you want everyone and their mother to know you're a first-year.


5. As a bracelet.

It’s cute, but not super practical because it might come off easily or swing around and hit stuff.


6. Through your belt loop.

Not always practical, but at least it’s not going anywhere.


7. As a belt.

Kind of a different approach to #6, but it really makes the lanyard doubly useful!


8. As a sash.

Relive your Scout days with this one. No one can steal it, and there's no way for you to lose it!


9. Wrapped around your thigh.

This one is similar to #8 in that it won't fall off and can't be removed without your detection.


10. As a ring.

This is one of my FAVE looks. It’s so cute! Everyone will be asking the symbolism if you wear it on certain fingers. You can tell your friends that you’re married to your school.


11. As a purse.

This is a purse idea I can get behind. It holds all your essentials! ID, credit card, and your keys!


12. Tucked into your pocket.

If you’re like my roommate and you like the practicality of #1 but you’re embarrassed of the lanyard hanging out, you can simply tuck it into your pocket for a nice, bulgy finish.


13. As an anklet.

So stylish. Bring anklets back into fashion with this one!


14. As a headband.

Cute, accessible, practical. Extremely fashionable. You’ll leave your friends wondering where you got it.


15. As an earring.

You'll never lose it!


16. On your glasses.

I can’t guarantee that they’ll help you see better; these might be more like fashion lenses.


17. In your shoelaces.

Super unique!


18. Like headphones.

Everyone will want a pair. The sound quality is even better than Beats. (Note: All sales are final, no refunds or returns.)


19. Don't.

Use the Force, alohomora, or telekinesis to open your door.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.
