12 Ways Not to Waste Your Summer

May is here which means summer is right around the corner. Classes are ending and finals are approaching--the end of the semester is in sight! Summer is notorious for being a time of relaxation after a long year of school. However, don't spend each day binge watching your favorite Netflix original. Get out, have fun, and don't waste your summer!

1. Get a part time job.

A little extra cash never hurt anybody. Start saving for your next semester of college!

2. Have adventure days.

Don't work your summer away! Make sure you have fun some days! Gather your friends to try a new restaurant, go on a hike, visit a local attraction, shop at Target or just try something new with your friends.

3. Plan a beach trip.

What's a summer without a beach trip? Plan a weekend to go down to the shore with family or friends.

4. Join a gym or go to work out classes.

Have you tried yoga or Zumba? Get in shape for bathing suit season!

5. Wake up before 10:30!

Don't waste your days by sleeping through half of them.

6. Job-shadow

Shadow someone in your field of interest for a few days.

7. Start an internship.

Find an internship in your field of interest! Get experience and build up your resume!

8. Reorganize

Find yourself bored in a messy room one day? Reorganize and give your room the deep clean it needs. Or reorganize your college things to prepare for next semester. Or get rid of clothes that you don't wear anymore.

9. Go to a concert.

If you can, go see a summer concert. Outdoor summer concerts are the best kind!

10. Read a book.

Rekindle your childhood love for reading. Pick up that book you have been passing by for months.

11. Okay, maybe watch that Netflix show you have been dying to see.

Just don't spend each day in front of your computer.

12. Enjoy each day!

Stop and enjoy the atmosphere of summer time!

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.
