1. For Your Athletic Friend 

You know, the one who chooses to de-stress on the treadmill instead of with a bag of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Stars on their lap watching "Victorious" reruns on Netflix? These Outdoor Voices leggings are perfect for this friend, and they're under $30 right now on Nordstrom Rack (as well as multiple other styles and colors)!

2. For Your Trendy Friend

This is the friend that brings a purse to the musty college dive bar and outshines everyone else who keeps their cash in their bras or back pockets. Add another to her collection with this adorable (not to mention highly-rated) mini purse from Urban Outfitters - on sale right now for only $29.00.

3. For Your Low-Maintenance Friend 

These adorable cheetah-printed bike shorts are perfect for the friend who hates wearing pants. Tell her she doesn't have to with these babies, and she'll love you forever. Only $25 on Aritzia.

4. For The Friend Who's Always On Vacation 

This bucket hat is unique, yet not too funky and your friend who's always in Turks and Caicos or Anguilla can wear it with almost every suit she packs! Not to mention, it will shield her beautiful face from all the sun's harmful rays. Get it for sale on Urban Outfitters now for only $19.00.

5. For Your Artsy Friend 

Society6 has everything your artsy girl needs this holiday season. This awesome poster is groovy and cool enough to spice up her apartment, bedroom, or whatever she wants. Shopping at Society6 also helps out artists around the world sell and promote their stuff!

6. For Your Eco-Friendly Friend

Although we should all be this type of friend, there's always one in the group who smacks the plastic straws out of our hands at Chipotle or never forgets their reusable bags when going to Whole Foods. This pack of three Baggu totes are perfect for this friend. I'm considering buying them for myself, honestly, that's how cute they are (imagine the envious looks at the grocery store)! Plus, they're only $25.20 on Shopbop right now.

7. For Your Skincare-Obsessed Friend 

This is the holy grail of skincare box sets from Sephora, and one that your skincare-obsessed BFF will instantly freak out over. An $120 value, it's only $40 online right now!

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.
