5 Things To Do On A Snowy Day

Snow is beautiful while it is falling and swirling around in the wind, speeding by the window. There's a softness and peace the way it lightly touches the ground as it accumulates and covers everything in its bright blanket of white. It also makes a dark moonless night brighter as it captures the light from the street lights and people's houses, making everything outside look like a scene from the Polar Express movie when the wolves appear in the snow-blanketed forest.

But when it starts to melt and everything gets all sloshy and muddy, I just want it to be gone. Honestly, in my mind, I am beginning to prepare for the beach - the balmy sun warming my arms and feet in the toasty sand while the salt water eases up and kisses my toes. I love everything about the beach. The snow, ehhh, I can take it or leave it - mostly leave it. But it is fun to take the time to do some things you might not think of on another day, just because the snow might have changed your schedule a bit. Here are 5 I am planning today.

1. Read a good book



I love hunkering down in the recliner with a cup of cocoa and a great book. My latest find, "Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine."

2. Go out and enjoy the snow.

It's always good for you to go out and get some exercise. The fresh air and temperature will make that cup of hot cocoa all the more yummy!

3. Take a cat nap


You've been working awfully hard studying for tests! Crawl under a soft blanket and take a cat nap. You'll feel so refreshed when you wake up!

4. Bake some cookies


These will be so good with your hot chocolate; all warm and gooey, the chocolate getting all over your fingers! YUM - I can smell them baking!

5. Hang some wallpaper


I've been wanting to do this for weeks. Today, I am finishing the room so that I can once again walk through it!

Whatever strikes your fancy, take some "you" time today and while you do, take a minute to go out and scoop up some snow and throw it down your friend's shirt. That will produce some great exercise as you run for your life!

Happy snow day!

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.
