Nail Polish Hacks

IMG_20121210_192718

Last week, I talked about doing little things that can relieve stress. I failed to mention doing one thing that’s probably my favorite: doing my nails. There’s a big box that’s filled with nail polishes and other manicure/pedicure supplies that my roommates and I all share in our apartment. At one point in the semester, my roommates and I would do our nails at least every week, and we’d all come up with different designs and color combinations. There’s definitely some therapy that comes from focusing in on doing something meticulous. Maybe guys feel the same way when they’re shaving, or when they’re trying to fix something. Doing something to get your mind off things, but still having a tangible result is definitely a good stress reliever.

Bean Bags out of Rice and Socks

A club I’m part of had to make a game for a Halloween party. We decided to do a bean bag toss. I was put in charge of making the bean bags, and I decided that I would make them myself. Being the great college student that I am, I waited until the very last minute to take care of this task. As I went to the grocery store to think of what to use to make bean bags, the first thing I saw was a bag of rice. At first I was going to use beans, but I figured that rice was more practical for me, because I could reuse it for cooking. Then I saw some long socks. It was then that I knew what I would make my bean bags out of: rice and socks! I proceeded to make the socks, but it was my roommate’s suggestion that really helped me to make awesome bean bags.
