5 Things Better Than Kimye Vs. Taylor Swift

It's 2016, after all, and news doesn't just travel fast; it travels at lightning speed. On July 17, the internet nearly broke when Kim Kardashian released a recorded phone call between Kanye and Taylor Swift. Tweets were spewing from all celebrities including, Kim herself, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, etc. taking sides in the matter. The "snake" emoji went viral, being included in thousands of people's tweets to infer that they, too, did not believe Taylor. I am only explaining this not to take sides, but to show how powerful the internet is.

Gossip spreads like wildfire, and too often it's for the wrong reasons. While many people think that Taylor Swift has lost her southern charm on her way to the top, is it really our decision to decide how celebrities live their lives? No. Here is a list of things to do instead of getting involved in this nonsensical battle.

1. Spend time with your family.

If you're like me, you're about a month from going back to school. That sucks, but it's also the greatest thing ever. In the next month, though, spend as much time with the people who are most likely paying for your tuition. Do something with your siblings, and put down your cell phone so that you don't feel the need to subtweet Taylor this week.

2. Get informed about the upcoming election.

When I say get informed I mean do your research on credible sites. Do not read what your crazy uncle or high school dropout is writing on Facebook. They are not credible sources. When you have obtained this information, use it to keep yourself educated instead of tweeting about why either candidate is right or wrong. Put your head in the books or on the web instead of trying to find some dirt on Kanye, or Kim Kardashian.

3. Read a book.

Find something new to tweet about. Recommend a book to your followers instead of telling them about how you never liked Taylor Swift in the first place. Maybe while reading a book you will discover a new world far away from all this pop culture nonsense.

4. Download Pokemon Go.

Get involved in the newest craze, and go outside. Keep your Pokemon Go app on so that it drains your battery and you can no longer use your Twitter app. Since no one uses computers for social media anymore, you will not be able to engage in the argument. Instead, you will have walked 5 km, hatched an egg and maybe caught some new rare Pokemon to share with your friends.

5. Get a job.

Working 40 hours a week has zero benefits on my mental health or tan, but at least I'm not on my phone for the duration of it. If you get a job you will most likely not be allowed on your phone during your hours, therefore you will be missing out on information. After an eight hour day, you will feel misinformed but it will be almost impossible to catch up so put down your phone and take a nap instead.

At the end of the day, we all still have Kanye and Taylor on our phones blaring through our headphones. There are no choosing sides when it comes to what kind of music you listen to here. So go out there and have a great day without drama because you don't want anyone in your business, and they don't want anyone in theirs (besides Kim, she wants everyone in her business).

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
