16 Things You Forgot You Hated About Summer

Trying on swimsuits. Need I say more?

16 Things You Forgot You Hated About Summer
Frank McKenna

Don't get me wrong, summer is great. No school, no homework, just relaxing. No having to put on a big winter coat when you go outside. Nothing is easier than throwing on shorts and t-shirt and being able to walk out the door. The days are longer, which is so nice, and you can finally workout outside. But there are some down sides to the warmer weather that comes with summer time. Like what is with all the bugs? Everywhere. All the time. And ladies, swimsuit shopping? Ugh. I feel like I just bought one last year and it's already time to hunt for a new one. And I mean hunt.

1. Burning your hand on the metal part of your seatbelt. I always forget how much that hurts.

2. Actually having to shave your legs more than once a week. Ugh.

3. Your hair having a mind of its own.

4. You realize how pale you are when you put shorts on.

5. That gross feeling of your legs sticking to the leather seats in your car.

6. Your feet being SO dirty after wearing flip flops all day.

7. Bugs. Bugs everywhere.

8. Sweating as soon as you get out of the shower.

9. Wanting to cut all your hair off because it's constantly suffocating your face and neck.

10. Your iced coffee dripping all over your desk.

11. Sitting outside for the first time and turning tomato red.

12. Having to wear a strapless bra with any cute top you find.

13. Trying on swimsuits. Need I say more?

14. Always having to bring your sunglasses or else you spend the rest of the day squinting.

15. Having to bring layers to the office because the AC is so cold (but wonderful).

16. Always being covered in mosquito bites and being SO itchy.

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.

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.
