The college Black Friday List

Black Friday is probably my favorite holiday. Not only do you get fabulous deals, but you get all your Christmas shopping done early and at prices nobody can beat. Especially for college students who run on a budget, this can be a fabulous idea for a get together with your friends whom you haven’t seen in a while and Christmas shop together. Here are my top Black Friday Picks.

Old Navy

Old Navy is probably my top pick because they are giving away a Kodak EasyShare Waterproof Camera with a $40 purchase. If you are as excited about this deal as I am, get your lawn chairs ready because you need to arrive very early because supplies is limited, but the wait is so worth it.

Walmart 

During the winter, nobody is going to want to truck in the snow to get out and have fun. And while the TV is great, you are going to want to have something a little more exciting. This is why I am buying board games. Yes. Board games so when we are stuck in the snow with no place to go, we can break out the monopoly board and play a couple of rounds. Walmart is selling these games for 3.99! You can’t get a better deal then that. With those prices, Even Milton Bradley would cough up the cash.

Ulta

This make-up giant is having a great sale. Not only are their exclusive shampoos buy one get one half off. Their make up is marked down 75%, and this is good make up we are talking. Whether you are a girl or a guy looking to get his mom a great present, Ulta is the place to be.

Best Buy

So when you are stuck in the dorm room and netflix is getting old, the next best thing is the old fashioned DVDs. Best buy is selling their DVDs for $1.99. Their selection ranges from new releases to classics. You can’t go wrong either way.

JcPennys

JcPennys has a fabulous winter sale going on for black friday. Thick cable knit sweaters are only 10 dollars for both men and women, originally 25. Also, they are having a great sale on coats. And from what reports are telling us, winter is going to be brutal this year so you better stock up.

Target

Target is having a phenomenal sale store wide, but pay extra attention to the fruit of loom fleece. This is great to go under your down coats or just chilling in the dorm room. Any way you have it, this fleece is a must have and at only 5 bucks for both the tops and sweats, you can’t beat it.

Keep Calm and Travel Smart

It’s almost Thanksgiving time and you know what that means! No, it’s not the glorious turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes, you are thinking of, its holiday travel. Yes, everyones favorite thing. With all of this excitement, it can overwhelm anyone. But don’t worry. I have a few tips and tricks to keep anyone sane.

Pack smart 

warm to cold 

If you are like me, you are an out-of-state kid who is going home to a warm climate and coming back to a cold one. If this is the case, pack all your summer clothes and bring back all your long wool coats. This will not only make room in your closet in the dorm room, but put clothes in your closet at home for when you come home in the spring/summer.

cold to cold

For the out-of-staters going from a cold climate to a warm climate, the process is a little more tricky. Definitely bring all your summer clothes that you have in your dorm room back, but only bring one or two “heavy” coats for the holidays and bring the rest of your cold weather stuff back to the dorms to survive the weather

 

Be productive at the airport 

Airports around the holidays are to malls on Black Fridays. HELL. The lines are long and everyone is antsy to get home. Get to the airport around 2 hours early. This gives you plenty of time to check any baggage that you have and go through the security check line. Depending on the length of your flight, either buy the wireless internet package or bring a light textbook and study. Even if you eventually fall asleep on the plane, at least you spent some of your time wisely and by all means, catch up on your sleep.

There’s a reason why this isn’t a game of follow the leader

A guy can just as easily dump you if you fuck him on the first date as he can if you wait until the tenth.

– Kim Cattrall

So what happened? I thought everything was great, we had an amazing conversation, you didn’t stare at my boobs too often, and you made my laugh, so why did you all of a sudden just drop me? I don’t understand.

Remember the game that was played in Peter Pan with lost boys? You know it had a whole song that went with it, “We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader, following the leader wherever he may go”, well this is not that game. This is the real world, where people actually grow-up, get old, and mature, maybe you should try it.

So if you actually weren’t interested in me, why not man up and just tell me that? A simple text, phone call, hell I’ll even take a facebook message saying “Hey last night was fun, but I think we should just stay friends”. It’s better than never calling again. This isn’t called following the leader, so I’m done with you leading me on.

Stop weighing yourself down.

I think that whatever size or shape body you have, it’s important to embrace it and get down! The female body is something that’s so beautiful. I wish women would be proud of their bodies and not dis other women for being proud of theirs!

-Christina Aguilera 

Why do we obsess over these three digits that we call our weight? I mean, that’s all it really is. Three numbers. Yet, we have consumed our lives to perfecting those numbers, we make goals for ourselves to get these numbers down, and we commit to these numbers for long periods of time.

We need to stop this non-sense. 

I will never understand why we restrict ourselves of food, nourishment, and ultimately of life, in order to achieve smaller digits. What? Are we for real? I’m sorry if I’m craving a Big Mac, I’m going at it like lion on the prowl.

Food is not the enemy, we are. The only person who cares about your three digits is you. Nobody else even knows them. So indulge a little, it’s not going to hurt anybody. 

Just like there is no perfect man, there is no perfect number. You can only be happy with what you have and realize how  this “perfect” number doesn’t exist. It doesnt. People set these ideal numbers in their head and dedicate their life to them, but that number is only an estimate. What happens if that ideal weight is not enough? All that hard work, deterring of the fatty foods, and eating tofu because you “think” it’s low-cal and you still don’t look good. Why not try being content with who you are instead? Your three numbers are going to change constantly throughout your life, nobody stays the same size forever, but the thing that will always be present is your confidence. 

Three digits; that’s all they really are and that’s a fact. So don’t cry if you gain 5 or 10 pounds, you probably didn’t even notice until you stepped onto the scale.

 Please don’t worry, weight ain’t nothing but a number so stop weighing yourself down.

Who said a long distance relationship had to be with a person?

One of the hardest parts of living out of state is leaving your beloved pet behind.

 

 

Sometimes, it can make you very sad

But have no fear! You will be reunited with your pet soon and all your woes will be gone.

But then it will be time to come back to school and your pet will wonder where you are going.

But the one thing that will never change no matter the distance is the love for your pet
