5 Things To Do On Vacay

Summer has finally come around again and that's when everyone takes their annual vacations. Some feel like they need to always be on the go during vacation and then others want to just take it easy. Here are five things that you should do on your vacation.

1. Site See

Drive around and look at everything; the trees, the stores, the monuments, the old lady dressed like a hillbilly for a dinner theatre. Check everything out. Who knows, there might be something you see that you want to do or buy.

2. Don't Rush

Don't hurry up getting ready or yell at your older brother because he is taking too long in the bathroom. If you are rushing your entire trip, you wont enjoy anything. There is no set times or alarm clocks on vacation.

3. Eat that Last Doughnut

Vacation, the only time you can stuff your face with endless amounts of junk food and no one will judge you for it (if they do it's OK... you don't care because you're on vacation). So stop at Krispy Kreme when that "Hot Now" sign is on. And eat the last one of the two dozen your family bought because you can... and you want to... and you should.

4. Make Compromises

Not everyone is going to agree on how your vacation time should be spent but fear not, it's still far better than going to work for the week. So make compromises... if you want to go on the beach but the rest of your family wants to go play miniature golf, go play golf (and win). Yes it is your vacation but it is also everyone else's so you need to let a few wants go for the happiness of the entire group. I promise you they will take note and do something you want to do later on in the week.

5. Have FUN

Whether it be sitting in the hotel room relaxing, hanging out on the beach or walking in and out of stores, enjoy yourself. You have earned this time off and you should spend it however you choose. After all, it IS vacation.

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.
