10 Carry-On Essentials Every Girl Needs For Long Flights This Holiday Season
Natasha Trivedi

Travel is one thing you'll never waste your money on. every experience is something new, and you'll always learn something. Since I love to do it so much, I've noticed that there are some things I like to have on hand. Here are some of my travel essentials.

1. Passport

This is an obvious must have if you're traveling internationally, but it's also a good way to show ID on any type of flight, especially for those who do not have a driver's license.

2. Neck Pillow

If you plan to sleep during your flight, you won't be very comfortable without one of these. Not only does it support your neck, but a good one will be super soft.

3. Sleeping Mask

Again, I can't sleep on a flight without one of these. Make sure you find one that's comfortable to nap in.

4. Movies/ TV Shows

Make sure you download some just in case your flight doesn't have complimentary in-flight entertainment.

5. A Good Book

My personal favorite form of entertainment. I personally love ones with great stories.

6. Something Warm

A Jacket, sweatshirt, sweater, big scarf, blanket... whatever works for you.

7. Headphones

Pick the style that's most comfortable to you. If you want to watch something or listen to music, you'll need these.

8. Journal/ Coloring Book

Writing and coloring not only pass time but are also great stress relievers. IF you have travel anxiety, this is extremely helpful.

9. Sunglasses

If a flight hasn't been too good to the skin on your face, the right sunglasses will cover it up.

10. Electronics

You never know when you might need them, so the wisest idea is to keep them in close proximity,

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
