50 Songs To Cure Your Post-Holiday Blues

Ah, the end of the holiday season. Your home is likely filled with New Year's party streamers and baked goods/leftovers from the holiday season. Although the return to normality and promise of New Year's Resolutions are underway, you're likely suffering from the post-holiday blues. While adults are returning back to work, students are heading back to school with the looming promise of a new semester ahead of them.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the New Year as an opportunity to further ingrain myself in the Elon community and truly come into my own. However, with this comes the responsibility of schoolwork, keeping up with my athletics, and beginning to establish my **professional** career that I have procrastinated thinking about until now. However, how am I supposed to do this without the perfect playlist to keep me going when I feel like I'm about to fall short?

DISCLAIMER: Some of these songs are explicit, so they may not be for everyone. Also, it is personally created by yours truly and likely will not conform to everyone's music taste. With that said, pick out the songs you like and start a playlist of your own!

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.
