Don't take 21 shots.

13 Things Everyone Should Know By The Time They Turn 21

Here are little things you should know before turning the big twenty-fun:

1. Quality over quantity.

Sometimes, less is really more.

2. You can have your cake and eat it too.

Eat it and enjoy it.

3. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, Shame on me.

Take letdowns and turn them into lessons.

4. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

In other words, worry about yourself.

5. Actions speak louder than words.

What one does is much more significant than what one says.

6.Bite the bullet.

Sometimes you will be faced with accepting something difficult or unpleasant. Learn to deal with it.

7. Practice what you preach.

Do the things that you advise others to do.

8. A picture paints a thousand words.

Your appearance speaks volumes. Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

9. It takes two to tango.

Along with two wrongs don't make a right.

10. Don't bite off more than you can chew.

Don't fill your plate with more than you can handle.

11. Let sleeping dogs lie.

Don't try to fix what isn't broken.

12. Take it with a grain of salt.

Don't take things too seriously.

13. Every cloud has a silver lining.

Difficult times will lead to better days.

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.

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.

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.
