I've spent many summers traveling to some incredible places with my family, places that have quite literally taken my breath away. As I was thinking about all of the vacations I've been on so far, I realized that there were too many to remember. But these 11 destinations were so breathtaking they stood out from the rest. I 100% percent recommend that you check these out.

1. The Redwood Forest, California

Nothing makes you feel small like huge trees that are the height of football fields.

2. Seward, Alaska

Not only does this town have a bay, but it's also the mural capital of Alaska. It's such a cute touristy town and it was my favorite part about my family vacation to Alaska.

3. Banff, Canada

I've never truly felt like a princess until I stayed in this castle. It feels and looks like something straight out of a fairytale.

4. Carmel, California

When I visited this place, I felt like I was in a Disney movie where the characters visit a really nice hotel and somehow wreak havoc on it. The lavender lemonade, board game rooms and so much more made me feel unworthy of being at that ranch.

5. Bryce Canyon, Utah

While all of the canyons in the west are incredible, this one stuck with me for some reason. Every part of the canyon looked like it was individually carved out and designed a certain way, and it always took my breath away.

6. Patagonia, Argentina

This iceberg is probably halfway melted, but it was still incredible to get a chance to walk on it and see it up close.

7. Grand Canyon, Arizona

The Grand Canyon got its name for a reason.... because it's just, GRAND.

8. Savannah, Georgia

What's not to love about the Spanish moss, the boardwalk downtown, and the beautiful historic buildings?

9. Destin, Florida

I will NEVER get over the beauty of the white-sand beaches and the crystal-clear water. Destin is truly a gem that everybody needs to discover.

10. Antelope Canyon, Arizona

I can actually say I've been to a place that is on people's MacBook backgrounds. Truly a site that you have to see with your own two eyes.

11. Wasila, Alaska

Honestly, I wish I could live in Alaska. It's so pretty, clean, and everything just feels like it was made for a Hallmark movie.

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.

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.
