10 Things Every Book Lover Will Understand

I am that girl who is always happy when I have a book in my hand. I love going into the worlds of my characters in my books and escape the real world as soon as I read the words on a page. I came with ten things everybody who loves reading will understand.

1. The struggle of waiting for the next book to come out

You get to the end of the book and those dreaded words say the next book won't come out until a year and a half later. You have invested your entire heart and soul into the book and your only reaction is:


2. The book is ALWAYS better than the movie.

Those people out there are saying how wonderful the movie is. You just stand there and roll your eyes, while you are definitely thinking that the book is so much better. When you see the movie you can't help but mentally correct everything that is wrong in the movie.

3. Realizing the series/book is over

You turn to the last page and realize the book is over. You are not quite emotionally stable to start a new book yet. Now what are you supposed to do with your life?

4. The trauma of a character's death

All the sudden you're reading and the author kills off your favorite character without any prior notice. This character felt like your best friend. So you just sit there like:

Nobody understands what you feel, so you walk around in a fog for a few days wondering what happened.

5. Having to be dragged out of Barnes and Noble

The feeling of agony when your friends want to go to a different store other than Barnes and Noble and you haven't even looked through all the sections yet.

6. Instantly bonding with somebody over a book

Them: "What have you been reading lately?"

You: "Harry Potter."

Them: "Oh my gosh! You love Harry Potter too!"


7. Not having enough shelf space for books

You still buy that book even though your shelves are so full , so you to find alternative places to put them. You even get asked, "Do you have room to fit all of those on your shelves?"


8. Learning to ignore people, so that you can read

You learn very early on how to block out noise such as voices and TV so that you can read anywhere and anytime you want to. It takes almost five or six times for somebody to get your attention while you're reading.

9. Somebody tries to talk to you while you are reading

Somebody tries to have a conversation with you while reading a book. Even though you have mastered the art of ignoring, they just will not leave you alone.

10. Having that one book that you will reread again and again

Everybody has that favorite book that they will read over and over no matter how many times they have read it. It's a comfort book that will always make you happy everytime you read it. Whether it be romance or action packed, you are always more than willing to take a step into that world.

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.
