11 Things To Get Rid Of After High School

Your whole life is ahead of you now that High School is done. Time to start fresh.

11 Things To Get Rid Of After High School

Whether you like it or not, real life starts after graduation. It is time to get rid of the old and bring in the new, bright future.

1. Toxic Friendships

It may be tempting to keep these friends around so you don't feel lonely, but it's not worth it. The whole world is full of cool people you can meet.

2. Clothes You Never Wear

Yes, it was a hot look three years ago. But, trends change and so do your tastes.

3. Bad Study Habits

Maybe you coasted through high school, or maybe you are amazed you graduated. Either way, college is a lot harder, so that means studying more.

4. Poor Health Choices

I get it, eating fast food delivered straight to your door so you never have to leave the comfort of your couch is the best thing on earth. Though, the next time you have to take the stairs, all those times you "forgot" to go to the gym catch up to you.

5. Everything In Your Car

Odds are, you barely cleaned out your car during high school. But now that you are an adult, all of those empty soda cans and fast food bags may need to find a new home.

6. Random People's Numbers

If you have not been in contact with that person for more than a year, you do not need their number.

7. Your Old Notes

You made it, you graduated, you will never have to take sophomore English again.

8. All Of Your SAT Prep Books

These books were way to expensive to begin with, and are now completely worthless.

9. Those Old Tweets

Just ask yourself, would you want your grandma or future employer to see it?

10. Your Ego

The real world is about to kick your butt, and being humble is never a bad thing.

11. Everything You Thought You Knew

There is a whole world out there, with music, art and places for you to discover.

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.
