24 Things Everyone Needs To Remember
Ocean Waves

People, as a whole, can be destructive. It's pretty clear to see. People tend to be harder on themselves than anyone else is and we often forget a lot of simple things that would help us so much if we kept them in our minds and lived by them. People need to treat themselves better and I believe these are a few things to remember when doing so.

1. It's okay to treat yourself once in a while.

2. It's okay to be afraid.

3. It's okay to not be in a relationship.

4. Let yourself get hopeful and excited, don't hold back too much

5. It's actually good to have goals and dreams.

6. It's fine if you have bad days.

7. It's fine if you want something different for yourself than others want for you.

8. You're allowed to help yourself some before you help others.

9. You're allowed to take care of yourself period.

10. You don't always have to have everything planned out all the time.

11. People are always more willing to help than you think they'll be.

12. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

13. Don't bottle up your emotions for too long.

14. You don't know what's going on in other peoples' lives.

15. Taking chances doesn't have to be as scary as it seems.

16. You're human, you have limits.

17. Don't push yourself past those limits.

18. You aren't weak for having limits. You're just human.

19. The smallest act of kindness really can make a huge difference.

20. Serving others is a good way to help yourself heal.

21. It's healthy to take a break when you feel like you need one.

22. You truly are so much stronger than you think you could ever be.

23. You made it this far, you can keep going.

24. Your mistakes don't define you as long as you learn from them.

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.

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.
