I'm Determined To Do All 20 Of These Things Before I Turn 20

Shooting someone whilst simultaneously making them look like a rainbow? Sign me up!!!!!!!!!!

I will be looking up this list next year and see how much I did. Pictures will be included of my trips!

1. Go on a road trip with my friends

Giphy

I love traveling and I am hoping to go on a vacation with some friends by next year

2. Go to a haunted house

If I don't look like Kermit, I want my money back

Every year I tell myself I will finally go to a haunted house and every year I find another excuse not to go but this year will be different (I say confidently).

3. Visit my family in Mexico

Giphy

My grandparents are some of the funniest people I know and I miss them so much. I also have two new baby cousins I haven't met. My cousins/siblings who I basically grew up with are over there. I just need to pack my bags and leave.

4. Canada road trip

Giphy

Listen, I know I clearly have a lot of traveling in my bucket list but this one is the one that bothers me the most. I can literally walk to the Ambassador Bridge from my house and yet, I have never been.

5. Shoot paint balls at people

Giphy

Shooting someone whilst simultaneously making them look like a rainbow? Sign me up!!!!!!!!!!

6. Watch five movies from my "next time" jar

Giphy

I have a jar compiled of movies I always wanted to go see that I couldnt because by the time I could, they were out of theaters. It also contains movies that other people think I must watch. Big Daddy is at the top of that list.

7. Learn a basic understanding of sign language

This is just a reminder that FLINT STILL DOES NOT HAVE CLEAN WATER!

Giphy

This is just a reminder that FLINT STILL DOES NOT HAVE CLEAN WATER!

I have always been drawn to sign language but unfortunately, it has never been offered at any institution I have been a part of. Therefore, I hope to teach myself a little through YouTube or other programs and have a basic understanding of it.

8. Make a recipe book of my mom's dishes

This seemed appropriate considering this is what happened to me whenever I took my moms food anywhere (Zebra= humans)

Giphy

My mom is the best cook in the world. This is not up for debate. So I hope to be able to write down all of her recipes in a book and cherish it forever!

9. Do fifty service hours

Giphy

It doesn't matter where I volunteer as long as I am making a difference in someone's day. Who knows, maybe I will go on a mission trip again! Last time was phenomenal!

10. Go to a music festival

Giphy

I dont care what kind or where it is I just know I have got to go to one ASAP!

11. Sign up for a fun and creative class

Giphy

Pottery, Improv, Dancing, etc. I am signing up for one and who knows, maybe I will learn how to make pottery next year!

12. Write a creepypasta

Giphy

I love reading and listening to them but whenever I have to write one my mind just blanks out and I lose all of my motivation

13. Learn how to dance cumbia

Giphy

I am probably the worst cumbia dancer I know. My boyfriend, my best friend, my cousins, everyone I know has tried to help me but I just can't seem to get it.

14. Plan a mother-daughter weekend

Giphy

I love my mom so much and with work, school, etc. it just feels like I am always having to choose between her and other stuff. Don't get me wrong, I still choose her more times often than not but I think a weekend with just us will definitely help.

15. Let a friend blindfold me and take me on an adventure

Giphy

I know to you it seems like a great idea, possibly fun, but this is more of a life or death situation because my friends can never be fully trusted. However, I am also sure some of you understand what I mean. Our friends are out of control and quite frankly letting them take me wherever they please could possibly get me somewhere crazy but maybe this year I will finally accept my fate.

16. Pull at least 10 pranks

Giphy

Whether it be jump scaring people at the supermarket or changing out the vanilla ice cream for mayo, I need to at least pull 10 pranks before next year.

17. Go geocaching

Giphy

It is something I have always had an interest in. I always download apps and read articles but I have yet to actually go do it.

18. Go to a comedy show

Giphy

Everyone loves to laugh. Period. No explanation needed.

19. Go on a family trip

Giphy

My family is generally pretty huge but my parents and I never really go anywhere anymore where it is just the three of us. However, this year that will definitely change!

20. Bury a timecapsule

Giphy

This is probably my favorite one and something I will for sure be doing. Not quite sure what I will bury in it yet but I will figure it out once I get there.

I hope you enjoyed. Turning 19 in less than a week has helped me realize I should probably make one of these every year. Who know, maybe I leave this bucket list with pictures of the adventures in the time capsule?!

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.
