20 Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2020

New Year, New Me

20 Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2020

I've never been one for New Years' Resolutions, but I do love a good bucket list. I guess this is a mix of the two. Anyway, the new year is certainly going to bring countless new things into my life. I'm just excited to face them all.

1. Traveling to new places.

If all goes as planned, I'll go to four new countries this summer.

2. Discovering new music.

The last two years have brought me to country music. Who knows what's next?

3. Making new friends.

There's always room for more people to love.

4. Getting an internship.


5. Starting classes for my major.

Sociology and Women's Studies here I come!

6. Making new memories with old friends.

Always need more stories to tell when looking back at the good ol' days.

7. Moving out of the dorms.

I love being on campus, but I'm excited to be in a house with all my friends next year.

8. Moving forward from the past.

Time heals all wounds.

9. Volunteering more.

I'm excited to get more involved on campus and in my community.

10. Applying for a grad school program.

The future is coming fast, but I'm excited to see where it starts to take me.

11. Applying for journalism school.

I'm so ready to stop having to say I'm an intended major and just being able to say I am a PR major.

12. Reading books that'll change my life.

Next on my list? Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.

13. Practicing photography.

Haven't picked up my camera since June, and it's time to change that.

14. Learning how to cook.

Not being on meal plan is making this a necessity, but maybe I'll be good at it?

15. Getting another tattoo.

Sorry, Mom. I think I'm addicted.

16. Developing a new sense of style.

I started dressing different towards the end of 2019, and I'm ready to keep going with it.

17. Starting to exercise.

I've discovered exercising is actually pretty fun and relaxing. I should probably do it more often.

18. Cleaning my room.

My room is an absolute disaster, and I'm ready to be able to see the floor again.

19. Learning more about myself.

I keep discovering new things I like and hate and want and am afraid of. I'm looking forward to getting to know myself this year.

20. Getting closer to being the person I want to be.

It's a never-ending process, but 2020 will surely bring me a thousand steps closer.

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.
