It is always time to shop. As a result, we all experience these "mini heart attacks":

1. "You missed the sale. It ended last week."

This always happens as you proceed to buy the mound of clothes you tried on. You thought there was a sale but as they ring each item up, you kick back one small tear a time.

2. "We are sold out of that style."

Every time this happens to me, I picture myself falling to my knees, in slow motion, yelling "No!"

3. When you pick up a price tag and it is three times the amount of your bank account.

We have all done it. For example, a shoe catches your eye. You walk over to the pair of shoes and check the bottom for the price tag. You see $539 and your immediate reaction is as if the shoe was just taken out of a 400-degree oven with no oven mitt on. You flip the shoe back over quickly and evacuate that area quickly.

4. "We are closed."

You walk up to a store with the lights on and are so excited to buy the one thing you have been waiting for. But the door is locked. You make eye contact with the employee inside the window and they give you an evil smirk.

5. When the salesperson says you look great in an outfit and you know you look bad.

That is why you always bring a family member or a friend. Honesty is sometimes brutal, but worth it. Maybe you shouldn't be wearing a tight dress that makes you look like a sack of potatoes. Sorry salesperson, but not today!

Despite the tiny moments of panic we all have while shopping, buying new clothes and gifts for yourself is worth it.

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.
