3 Tips for Getting a Piercing!
Sarah Caple

I have a nose piercing. I have a piece of metal through my left nostril and i love it! It is something that I wanted for four years and now I can't picture myself without it! You might be thinking of getting a nose piercing or just a piercing in general and you might have a few questions or concerns. Here are a three tips for getting a piercing!

1. Find a Reputable Piercer!

I cannot stress this one enough! There's a saying that "good piercings aren't cheap and cheap piercings are good." and it is completely true! Find someone who is licensed, has a clean shop/tools, and who you feel comfortable with. If you don't feel comfortable with the piercer, find someone else! You get up close and personal with this person and it will make for a more enjoyable experience if you are comfortable with them.

2. Bring a Buddy With You!

Bringing a friend with you can make you feel more comfortable and less nervous! It also makes for a pretty fun memory to look back on!

3. Do Your Research!

Go on YouTube and watch videos about your piercing! Before I got mine, I watched several people getting their piercings done and about their experience. It gave a good peace of mind about getting it done! It can also be helpful to learn about piercings in general so you know what you're getting yourself into!

Happy and safe piercing!

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.

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.
