Home can be just as good as the beach.

11 Ways To Spend Spring Break At Home

So you’re not fratting it up in Laudy, what to do now that you get to spend spring break with the parents? Just because you will not be dartying all day long does not mean spring break can not still be great. There are plenty of things to do over break that will help you in the long run and can still be fun. You may not come back to school with a tan, but you also will not come back with a massive hangover. So you might win a little bit.

1. Exercise

Everyone else was working on their spring break body pre-break and while they gain calories from all the 'ritas they will be consuming, you can be working on your back to school body.

2. Catch up on your DVR

Netflix is awesome while you are away at school, but Netflix has the one downfall of not-every-show-you-watch-is-on-there. So take this time to catch up on all the episodes of "The Real Housewives" that you have missed.

3. Be with your dog (or cat)

This week is the perfect time to spend with your furry best friend.

4. Spend time with your parents

You only have so many years left of living in their home and they miss you, so take the time to hang out with them. You probably missed them too, even though you may not be willing to admit that.

5. See the friends you never do anymore

Spring break is a great time to spend with all of your college friends, but you also see those people all the time. Take advantage of this free time to spend it with friends who are also at home and that you never get to see anymore.

6. Take advantage of your town

Do the things that if you were a visitor you would do. You might think anything that is unique to your hometown is stupid, but take a chance and do it.

7. Sleep

In your own bed, the most glorious place to be.

8. Eat (Good Food)

Nothing is better than your mom's cooking.

9. Read

You can actually read books that are not school-based. You can also read the book without feeling guilty that you are not reading business law.

10. Be productive

You can cross off the items on your list that have been in your planner for months.

11. Cleanse

This is a great time to cleanse your life, spirit, body, attitude.

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.
