29 Life Lessons From Seinfeld

TV is more than just entertainment. It challenges, questions, stages, but at its best: it satirizes. Seinfeld, arguably one of the greatest television sitcoms of all time has a lot to teach us.

1. At all costs, avoid licking envelopes.

2. Want to be the life of the party? Bust some moves. Show ‘em your “little kicks.”

3. If you break the law (especially in Canada) be sure you can shake the law.

4. Who said the art of seduction had to be heterosexual?

5. Public transportation can't be tamed.

6. Friendship depends on the people and the ritual.

7. Some things are better left unsaid.

8. A good playlist goes a long way.

9. There's a fine line between insensitive and entertainment. Context is key.

10. When it comes to romance, we might not always be on the same page. But that's ok. Not everyone will notice.

11. Emotion can be a good thing, sometimes.

12. Keep on going; until it's game over.

13. A yellow bus doesn't have to be for school kids... never grow up, be young at heart.

14. "These pretzels are making me thirsty." You get one cameo in the role of you throughout your life. Make sure it's an unforgettable performance.

15. The first day of the rest of your life restarts each day.

16. Don't be chicken. Be the chicken, instead.

17. Good timing? Bad timing? Life, especially relationships, are all about timing.

18. Biking down a one-way street; you do you.

19. There's a lot to learn from the generation before us. (Sweet shirt too)

20. If you go down in flames, go down swinging.

21. Take the perm by the palm and let it fly.

22. Cameras, photos, or social media can bring out some of our innermost realities (or irrealities).

23. Own your own signature moves.

24. First impressions matter.

25. Keep caution up, even toward the end of the journey.

26. Bad decisions, we all make them. They're mistakes. Some are worse than others. But we can learn the most from them.

27. Some things are better left unsaid.

28. A little rhythm and swing brightens up any social scene.

29. A sense of humor will bring you a long way.

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.
