10 Things To Look Forward To After Turning 21

"You have nothing to look forward to now that you're 21."

10 Things To Look Forward To After Turning 21

Everyone can't wait to turn the big 21. Reason why... I think you all know. I just recently turned of age and a lot of people would tell me, " Happy Birthday! Now you have nothing else to look forward too." I laughed because I get the joke but it got me thinking how much I do have to look forward too. Now I'm not saying these happen right when you turn 21 or even 22 but it gives you something to work for. So for all of you that are about to turn 21 and think they have nothing to look forward too, here are 10 things to look forward too!

1. Hello!!! Graduation is near.

I have one year left of school and although I love my school and my team, I'm super excited to see what the future holds.

2. Speaking of future.

I can't wait to have a job! Scratch that, career.

3. Driver's license that faces the right way.

Am i the only one that was annoyed by that?

4. Owning your own home.

I can't wait for the day I can pinterest the crap out of a house that is MINE.

5. You can rent a car soon!!!!

6. You can now legally go broke in a casino.... Who doesn't want to do that?!

7. Your insurance will go down!

If not when you're 21 it will when you're 25 and that's closer than you were.

8. If you're like me you haven't bought your first car.

I appreciate the car my parents have provided for me but I'm so ready for the day that I am able to buy my own car that I've picked and is exactly what I want.

9. Not only will you have your own home but it can be where ever you want it to be.

I'm looking forward to the traveling that I can do after college and new experiences that'll come my way!

10. Overall, what you have to look forward to is your FUTURE.

Life is full of opportunities and they are just waiting for you to take them. Live outside of your comfort zone and go for things that no one else will and I can almost promise you that it will only lead to good things. Be excited for what your future holds because truly you control it. It's what you make it, so why dread it?

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.
