5 Books To Put On Your Summer Reading List

We have been waiting for summer since last summer and now that it is finally here, it is time to do all the things that we have been saying we would do once it is summer. And now that it is finally summer, it is time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a good book—preferably one that would be perfect for summer.

1. 'Thirteen Reasons Why' by Jay Asher

If you have already watched the first season on Netflix, but have not read the book, now is the time. The Netflix series has recently been renewed for a second season, so right now would be the perfect time to read the novel.

2. 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' by Jonathan Safran Foer

If you are a mystery fan this one is for you. Told from the point-of-view of nine-year-old Oskar Schell as he searches through the five boroughs of New York City trying to find the lock to the key he found in his father’s bedroom closet. It is a feel-good book just perfect for the summer time.

3. 'The Notebook' by Nicholas Sparks

…or any Nicholas Sparks novel, if I am being honest. Nothing says summer like a typical, cheesy, tear-jerking, but beautiful romance novel. And this Nicholas Sparks novel has got it all.

4. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee

This American classic is one of those that should be read over and over and over again. The famous novel is one of those books that the juice from every page, paragraph, sentence, and word could be squeezed until there was nothing left.

5. 'Once and For All' by Sarah Dessen

As Dessen’s newest novel, Once and For All is about Louna who helps brides plan their perfect day, but has ironically given up on happily ever after ever since her first love ended tragically, but girl-magnet Ambrose is not just ready to give up on her yet. Just like Nicholas Sparks, any Sarah Dessen novel is perfect for the summer.

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.
