15 Moments Every Girl Experiences During Formal
Sean McGrath

Formal was this Saturday, and I don’t know about you, but I spent the night before making some final preparations. I was with a few friends and we were hanging out, helping each other decide on hairstyles and whether or not she should go with the hot pink or light pink lipstick.

I had a really great time with them and it was a great stress relief, but we had some issues of our own.

1. You think your dress doesn’t fit, but your friend zips it.

Gene is squeezing Louise almost as tight as corsets squeeze my rib cage

2. Being able to move in your dress

I might not be able to sit down, but I can walk.

3. Your dress is too tight (and it feels like you can’t breathe).

Ask and you shall receive.

4. Tulle.

No one notices how awful tulle is until they actually wear it.

5. Multi-tasking your hair AND make-up.

Doing my mascara while someone else does my hair requires a lot of coordination that I do not have.

6. Smudging your make-up (and making yourself look like a raccoon).

A cute raccoon.

7. Your jewelry gets caught in your hair.

The worst part is when your hair gets caught in someone else's jewelry.

8. You think you don’t look good (and then tell yourself you do, because you are gorgeous).

I am both Linda and Bob.

9. That one person tells you don’t look good (and you know they’re wrong).

You DO NOT need that kind of negativity in your life.

10. You’re finally ready.

I wish I had Tina's confidence.

11. You’ve only been there for ten minutes and your feet are already dying.

Should have gone with the flaws, but the heels look better.

12. You forget you’re wearing make-up and rub your eyes.

And you die a little inside.

13. That one friend that pulls you onto the dance floor.

What would you do without them? (Honestly? Probably nothing.)

14. You’re (finally) dancing and having a good time.

All the single ladies know what's up.

15. The moment when you get home and can finally take your dress off.

Nothing beats pajamas and a chill session on the couch after a long night of dancing.

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.
