5 Summer Books To Bring Into Fall

Was it just me, or did summer completely fly by? I had all of these plans for my two and half month break from school, but now there are only a couple of weeks left. Some people have already started their fall semesters! My goal was to read a boatload of books, but unfortunately, my busy life caught up to me. While these may be considered “summer reads,” who says you NEED to read them during the summer? Take a break from your stressful classes and hectic schedule, sit down under a nice tree in the shade, and pretend it’s summer by reading any of these five books:

1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Just a couple of high school misfits who fell in love. Their path to happiness wasn’t so easy though, for many factors complicated this relationship.

2. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

A murder mystery soon to be shown in theaters! I found it impossible to put down.

3. It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

This book is a movie as well! It demonstrates the reality of mental illness while incorporating romantic and platonic love.

4. Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

If you are studying abroad in your future (especially Florence), then you should definitely read this book. The overall message is to leave your comfort zone and escape the negativity from your past. Also, it’s a cute light read that involves a young Italian couple.

5. Summer Sisters by Judy Blume

I know, it says “summer” in the title, but you should still give this book a try! It is a story told in the future by the characters revealing the true complexity of their friendship from the past.

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.
