4 Things to do in Biloxi Mississippi

My husband and I took a vacation to Biloxi this summer and, let me tell you, it was an awesome choice. We were quite undecided until the week before and we made the spontaneous choice to head down south. Keep in mind, we live in the mountains and the bayous and swamps were unlike anything we've ever seen before. Following is a list of items that my husband and I absolutely adored.

The beaches.



Though the beaches border the gulf coast rather than the ocean, they were in no way disappointing. I didn't know this beforehand but Biloxi Beach has the longest stretch of man-made beach in the world, 26 miles in total. This fact alone made the beaches much more enjoyable as there was ample room for families, couples, or singles just wanting some time on the sand. Restaurants and snack stands abound not far away, which makes it ever-more enjoyable.

Southern charm.

It's everywhere.


Whether it's in the architecture, the swaying moss hanging from the oak trees, or its wonderful people, charm abounds. Wherever we went, we found a nearly indescribably friendliness and warmth. It was a welcome departure from the everyday grind of working, shopping, family, etc. The southern charm was exactly what we needed to escape, even if just for a while.

Off-shore adventures.

Need an escape from dry land?


Probably my favorite day was spent on a small island about 12 miles off the coast of BIloxi. We took a ferry there and back and attended a tour of Fort Massachusetts in the process. The romance was nearly palpable. There's something about the open ocean, er, gulf, that really brings at the romantic in me. The spray of the salt wind and the constant warmth of the summer sun brought on a relaxation that's worth the money. On the island itself, we found snack bars and other areas to grab a bite to eat. Talk about a wonderful location.

Nightlife? Biloxi's got it.


Surprisingly, one of my favorite parts revolved around the multiple casinos around the city. Every night, after a long day in the magnificent southern sun, we found ourselves checking out what each casino had to offer. Keep in mind my husband and I aren't gamblers but, regardless, we always found something to do. Whether it was the going through the multiple shops, investigating different tourist attractions or finding awesome places to eat, I always looked forward to our nighttime adventures.

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.
