Who says a snow day has to be boring?

5 things To Do While Being Snowed In

There's no doubt that everyone gets excited when there is a school cancellation due to snow. With this newfound free time, people start to brainstorm ideas of what you could do for the day. Here are five ideas of how to spend your day off.

1. Go outside and enjoy the snow!

Usually, we hate the snow because it comes along with some freezing temperatures but the snow can actually be pretty awesome. Some of my best memories growing up were rushing to find my snow pants so I could go sledding with my neighbors. Also, who doesn't love building a snowman? Channel your inner Elsa and get to it!

2. Catch up on your sleep

This may not be the most exciting option, but sometimes it's necessary. Maybe it's been one of those weeks where falling asleep has been impossible or you've had a lot happening which has caused you to miss out on sleep. Take advantage of the time and catch up!

3. Have a movie marathon

This is a good time to try and watch all of the Harry Potter movies in one day, right? Spend some time with your family or even yourself and pick your favorite movie or Netflix show. Go and make some hot chocolate and grab the warmest blanket you have! It's movie time!

4. Bake some cookies

Go through your cabinets and use the cookie mix you never used for the cookie exchange you had earlier in the month! Feel free to share them with your classmates or co-workers the next day (or eat them all yourself). One piece of advice, don't eat too much of the raw cookie dough. The next day won't be fun, trust me.

5. Do the cleaning you've been pushing off for months

Is this fun? No, not at all, but you're stuck in the house so you might as well get it done. I recommend going through your closet and getting rid of the clothes you don't need anymore. You'll be amazed at how many clothes you want to get rid of. The best part about it is that now you have an excuse to go shopping!

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.
