10 Signs You're an Insomniac

They say the first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem. My name is Ilyssa, and my inability to sleep is most definitely a problem.

1. You're always the last person up in your house, room, apartment, etc.

You're always the one that locks the door and turns off all the lights (which is scary!!)

2. You don't understand how someone can fall asleep before midnight

Are we different species??? How is it physically possible for your body to fall asleep at 9 p.m.?!?!

3. You have tried every single suggestion ever given to you about falling asleep

Tea? Nope. Counting sheep? Nope. Zquil? Nope.

4. You get annoyed no one ever answers your late night texts

Some of the most amazing things happen at 2 in the morning and you have no one to share them with.

5. If you ever do fall asleep early you are convinced something is wrong

You must be getting sick, or have a fever or maybe it's mono!

6. You are a firm believer that you do not need 8 hours of sleep to function

Sleeping for 5 hours is sufficient.

7. You complain all day about how tired you are, but as soon as your head hits the pillow you are full of energy

Instead of sleeping you are suddenly questioning every decision you have ever made.

8. Instead of actually sleeping, you calculate the exact amount of hours you would get if you fell asleep at that exact moment

9. Your best ideas occur after 1 a.m.

10. If you are a college student, the nights you go out are the only nights you never have issues falling asleep

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
