Just call me Einstein.

12 College Inventions That Should Exist

College is all about learning to manage on your own in the easiest way possible. We're in the 21st century. There is no reason why any invention that could possibly make life easier for all of us, does not exist yet. They say that our generation is lazy, that we will be the cause of the destruction of the earth. But what if we put all of our lazy brains together to create things might make our day-to-day lives more manageable?

1. Alarm Clock that shouts your GPA at you until you shut if off.

Because there are few things in life less terrifying.

2. Glow in the dark textbooks.

Now you can pull that all nighter without causing your roommate to throw a tantrum over the status of the light switch.

3. Phone case that doubles as a cupholder.

Okay, so apparently this already exists and I'm unsure as to why I don't have one yet.

4. Yelp... for people.

Ever had a bad experience with someone and felt as though it is your civic duty to warn the rest of the world about that person? Leave a Yelp review!

5. Contact lenses that project your notes.

Sounds like a major violation of academic integrity. I like it.

6. Body pillow that mimics the shape of a loved one.

Sick of being in a long distance relationship and just wanna cuddle with bae? Living away from home and missing mom? Customize a body pillow that is shaped like the one you miss.

7. Scantron Printer.

Save yourself a panic attack and print your own scantron at home. You'll never show up to another final without one again.

8. Campus Doppelganger finder.

Sometimes getting out of bed for that 8am lecture is a physically impossible task. Don't worry. Just log onto your campus doppelganger finder to match you with your true hero. He/she will go to class for you for a small price.

9. Shout rooms for rent on campus.

Just flunk a midterm? Recently concluded that your TA is actually Satan and wanna send her back to hell? Let it out.

10. Insulating lotion.

Sick of going out without sufficient clothing in an attempt to look cute, and ultimately realizing that hypothermia is a thing? This lotion will block any cold sensation on your body.

11. Dry shampoo for clothes.

Yup. It's exactly what it sounds like. No need to dig through your dirty clothes hamper anymore and pretend like you didn't wear the same exact things yesterday.

12. Fu**boy repellent.

I'm gonna leave it to science to figure this one out.

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.

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.
