Summer break for college students is such a tease. You go from being five minutes away from your best friends to being hours away from them. You try as hard as you can to stay in touch through FaceTime and endless group texts. Care packages are things that college students adore and always want, so here are a few ideas of what to include in a car package to your long distance best friend,

1. A handwritten letter.

Handwritten letters are basically on the verge of extinction, but they are such a heart warming item. Include a handwritten letter about how much you miss them, memories from the past year, and funny stories that have happened since the last time you guys saw each other.

Buy a stationary set on Amazon.

2. A tacky tourist gift from your state.

The tack tourist gifts are so cheesy, that they never fail to put a smile on someone's face. Include a tacky tourist gift to put a smile on your best friend's face while also giving them an item that is going to remind them of you!

If you're from NY, get the mug above on Amazon.

3. Their favorite candy.


By including their favorite candy, it shows that you still remember the little things that they like and it will guarantee to warm their hearts.

For the friend who loves it all, get a variety pack on Amazon.

4. Sticky notes with a countdown.


Include a countdown for when you guys will next see each other! You can easily decorate sticky notes, and it will be a cute decoration on their wall.

Buy sticky notes on Amazon.

5. A pack of Kleenex.


Because there is a pretty high chance that they will cry while going through the car package!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions.
