11 Reasons Why I Miss The Beach So Much

Wwhen winter comes around is when I start asking myself why I chose to go to school in the northeast….. poor decision

11 Reasons Why I Miss The Beach So Much

In case you missed it, on Saturday February 20, 2016, it was 63 degrees here in New Jersey. After all this cold weather and rain and wind and snow, this sure felt like summer. I was so excited I convinced my friends to go to the beach because if it this nice out we have to hit the beach up! Being there made me think of all the things I miss about the summer and the beach. It also made me rethink my decisions since I couldn’t feel my feet for like two hours after attempting to actually get into the water.

1. A trip to the beach = warm weather.

Because who would go to the beach when it is 32 degrees?

2. Warm weather = less clothes.

You don't have to worry about carrying 5 sweatshirts, 1 jacket, 1 coat, a hat, thick socks and gloves anymore!

3. Less clothes = a good tan.

After all these months under all these layers God knows we are all looking hella pale, tbh.

4. Tan = laying still.

You can even take a nap while getting tan. Pretty sure that is the best of both worlds and if you don't like staying still you can build a castle, or a mermaid over your friends.

5. Too much tanning = hit the water.

Of course we all want to look caramel-like but we can’t just do that in one day. So when you feel yourself getting overheated you have a giant pool, aka the ocean, to go in.

6. In the water = a possible water game.

If you are already in the water you might as well start some cool game with your family or friends. Bring a ball and toss it around, or a frisbee, or anything. (Or whatever they are doing).

7. Water games = boogie boards.

I don’t know about you guys but I love seeing those people that kid of surf on the shore with the little surfboards. When they fall I fall because I am laughing to hard and when they don't fall I just wish I was that cool and coordinated.

8. Boogie boards = surfboards.

If you can boogie board maybe you can surf too. Or you can just watch people surf, you can even go rent a surfboard and try it by yourself. (And in my case fail miserably when I actually rented a surfboard and a friend try to tach me how to surf.)

9. Surfboards = running.

I am not really sure where I was going with that statement, but if you like running you can run on the beach! You get to see people and smell the fresh air and the ocean and even cool off in the ocean!

10. Running = frozen custard.

And when you are tired of running and feel like you deserve a reward go get a freaking frozen custard!!! Those things are delicious.

11. Frozen custard + beach = happiness.

The beach, the warmth weather and the sun will make you happy!

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.
