12 Ways You Know You've Found The Right College

Everyone says college is the best four years of your life. And that’s true if you've found the right college, of course. College is like living at a summer camp that your parents never have to pick you up from — what could be better? So, take it all in. Be silly. Be kinder than necessary to everyone around you. Live and relive in the small moments you may take for granted because you’ll never get these memories back.

1. Whenever you leave for a break, it feels like you're coming home when you return.

2. You spend your days exploring your city or relaxing in your dorm with your BFFs (and you love both)!

3. You argue with your high school friends about which college town is the best.

And yours is, obviously.

4. You call your school/dorm "home."

Dorm sweet dorm.

5. You deck out everything you own in your college's stickers and colors so everyone knows where you go to school.

Redbubble: every college's kids number one source for expressing him or herself.

6. You're comfortable being yourself, no matter how silly you may act, crazy you may feel or ridiculous you may seem to others.

7. You've made best friends that just get you, and you'll know you'll have them for the rest of your life.

8. Move in day is better than Christmas, Hanukkah, your birthday and Thanksgiving all rolled into one.

And that's saying a lot.

9. Breaks are just too long, and the school year is just too short (but you would have never said that before you went to college).

10. Nights in spent with friends are just as fun, if not more, as those spent out.

11. There will always be a little part of you that wants to stay in college forever.

I see no problem with this.

12. You don't even want to think about what happens after graduation day.

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

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.
