How to treat yourself every day.

6 Tips For Better Self-Care

2018 is the year of self-care, and there's no time like the present to start. There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking a little time every day to take care of yourself so you can feel great and do great things.

Need some tips for self-care? Here are some ways that you can treat yourself every day.

1. Do a little bit of yoga every week.

Even if it's just once a week, yoga is a great way to get your body moving. You will feel more rested, more relaxed, and have greater mobility. There are tons of videos on Youtube and apps that will help you, so you can do it in the comfort of your own home.

2. Make yourself a book list and stick to it.

Write down all of the books that you want to read in your journal or planner, and keep track of which ones you've read. Check them off when you're done, and keep adding titles as they come. Reading is one of the easiest ways to relax and take time for yourself while still expanding your mind and learning new things. Who doesn't love reading a good book?

3. Sleep in on the weekends.

Don't have to get up early? Then don't. Turn your alarm off and let your natural body clock do the work. That extra hour or so of sleep can help you recharge and feel much better.

4. Start off your morning with some good coffee (or tea).

It's important to start every day off with a good start, and coffee is my favorite. Whether you have a Keurig, a Nespresso, or a french press, take some time to make a good cup of coffee to wake you up and get you ready for the day. If you aren't in to coffee, I guess tea could work, too.

5. Treat yourself to nice face masks.

Sheet masks cost as little as $5 at the drugstore. They're an amazing way to keep your skin looking fresh and hydrated without breaking the bank on a boujee mask. Put one on right when you wake up for glowing skin all day long.

6. Invest in a candle.

Aroma therapy actually works, trust me. Get a candle that helps you feel relaxed, calm, and happy. The scent should make you feel at home and at rest.

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.
