10 Things You'll Remember If You've Had A Facebook For A While

Timehop can either be your best friend or your worst enemy.

10 Things You'll Remember If You've Had A Facebook For A While

We've all heard it said that a new day equals a fresh star, unless we're talking about Timehop. In that case, the app takes everything you've ever posted on social media on that day & brings it back, no matter how awkward and embarrassing. Just when you thought that you had buried all of your statuses about how you were so excited to see Taylor Lautner in the latest Twilight movie, there they are again, staring you in the face. This app has probably brought back some great memories, along with quite a few that you wish had never happened. Here are several things that you'll remember if you've used Facebook for a few years.

1. You had to beg your parents to let you get a Facebook.

Nowadays, you can join just about any social media site you want, but back then, you were forced to sit through a lecture about "Stranger Danger".

2. You had to have the perfect Pieces of Flair board.

And you had to choose just the right flair to send to your friends. It was basically Pinterest for Facebook.

3. You became a fan of hundreds of pages, no matter how random they were.

You would go back and unlike all of them, but it's easier just to live with the regret and move on.

4. You posted "Truth Is" and "To Be Honest" statuses when you needed a confidence boost.

"Truth is… Ur rly cool. Ur nice and funny. Ur in my math class. We don't rly talk but that should change." *cringes internally*.

5.You had entire conversations with people by writing wall posts back and forth.

"I'm talking 2 u on the phone right now!!!!!" "LOL IKR?!?! We r SO funny. I bet evry1 is jealous that they aren't hearing this conversation!!!"

6. You loved to post taggable pictures.

Sometimes you honestly got jealous because you knew that you deserved to be tagged in most of those categories but your friends could only pick one.

7. Once you discovered photo editing websites, your pictures became a lot more colorful.

*10 different filters and several neon words and cutesy shapes later* "Ah, perfect."

8. You either loved to play Facebook games or absolutely hated them. There was no in between.

"Not another Farmville request…"

9. Your statuses with angsty or sad lyrics were just your younger self's version of subtweeting.

Bring on the Taylor Swift lyrics and broken heart emojis…

10. There was always that one person on your News Feed that used their statuses as their diary.

Do we really have to hear about how you and your boyfriend are so in love even though you've already broken up five times?

Sure, Timehop makes you wonder why your 15 year old self was ever allowed to post anything on social media, but at least you've grown up enough to get a good laugh out of it and learn from your mistakes.

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.
