11 Thoughts Moving Into Your First Apartment (With Your Best Friend)

This week, the roommate adventures of Kasey and Macey pick up where they last left off! We moved from a tiny dorm room/Harry Potter’s closet underneath the stairs to a luxurious apartment with a real kitchen. Like many of you all, we know the struggles of settling down in a new place. It's a whirlwind of day, jam packed with emotions, and at the end of it you are stuck between fist-pumping for freedom and crying for a "How To Be An Adult" handbook. Here are some of the thoughts that ran through our minds on move-in day -- we’re sure they’ll hit home for some of you as well:

11. This parking lot seems rather small in comparison to the amount of people living here.

10. Has toilet paper always been this expensive?

9. The amount of stuff I brought is excessive. I don’t need all of this.

8. Wait, where's my straightener?

7. Why do I have to live on the third floor? That’s a workout plan I didn’t sign up for.

6. Wow, no one is telling me to make my bed anymore.

5. What if someone asks me where I live? I don't know my new address yet.

4. I am literally carrying a box of sweaters, why is this so heavy?

3. You mean I have to grocery shop? The refrigerator doesn’t stock itself?

2. Mom, would you be willing to come up and clean every once in awhile?

1. This is so much bigger and better than dorm life. Look at this closet. I could ballroom dance in here.

Happy move-in season, y'all! You're finally home.

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

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.
