My hair is more high maintenance than me.

12 Struggles Only People With Curly Hair Will Understand

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my curly hair, but the time it takes to manage it and not to mention the amount of products to do so is not easy. Here are some things that only people with curly hair will understand.

1. You can't brush your hair. Well, you can, but you'll turn it into a lion's mane.

2. You own too many products. You've tried them all. Now you have a variety of everything to attempt to tame the mane.

3. Humidity is not your friend. Your hair just gets bigger and bigger with humidity.

4. People can't play with your hair. You yell at people for touching your hair because it only gets worse the more you mess with it.

5. You always have to have a hair tie. A good hair day can turn into a bad hair day real quick.

6. You can't sleep on wet hair. Yet again, it just turns into a lion's mane in the morning.

7. You never know how your hair is going to turn out. You might do the same routine every time, but it's a different result every time.

8. Pencils (and everything really) get stuck in your hair. There have been some weird things stuck in the "fro" before.

9. Haircuts. You might think you only cut an inch off, but once it dries and curls back up, it looks like you cut multiple off.

10. Your hair may take half the day to dry. Good luck trying to plan the best time of day to take a shower based on when your hair will be dry because it may never be dry.

11. You shed like nobody's business. There's hair on the floor, in the drain, and probably in your food as well.

12. You learn to love your crazy, messy, curly hair.

Curly hair is definitely not the easiest hair to manage, but it sure is worth it. You just have to learn to love it.

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.
