"Have no regrets in life. Just lessons learned

10 life lessons that are shaping me into the person I want to be:

1. Family comes above everything and everyone

- In the end, you can always rely on the people who love you endlessly to support you. Never take their love for granted and always be appreciative

2. Never underestimate your self worth

- Our biggest enemy is our minds. Once we realize that we are in control of our own lives it becomes easier to live for ourselves and to appreciate ourselves

3. Be thankful for who stayed & who left

- Remember that God only puts the right people on your path & removes the wrong ones

4. Appreciate the little things in life

- Don't sit around focusing on the terrible, frustrating or annoying things in life. Focus on the pleasurable and exciting things that make you smile

5. Dream Big

- Nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it. You are the creator of your dreams

6. Work hard & Make it happen

- Focus on yourself & what you want your life to be. The rest will fall into place when you least expect it

7. Be kind

- Remember to always lift others up.

8. Believe in yourself

- Don't let others bring you down. Always remember that you are capable, you are strong and that you can & will do everything they say you cannot.

9. Don't be revengeful

- You do not need revenge to move on

- Remember that living happily is enough of a sign that you did not let the past beat you

10: Acknowledge your growth

- Where you are now and where you want to be is growth. And the thing in between is life

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.

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.

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.
