It's raining, it's pouring, no one will be snoring today!

7 Activities To Do On A Rainy Day

It’s early in the morning and you look outside and it is rainy. What a bummer. You can’t really go outside to do anything, and finding a good book to read just seems plain and overdone. With that in mind, the cabin fever can start to appear quicker than you think. You want to do something different and fun, but have no ideas? Well here is a great list of seven things you can do with your group of friends or your family on a rainy day:

1. Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are the best, especially when you’re indoors and have nothing to do. You can make them from scratch or bake them from pre-made dough. It doesn’t matter as long as you can eat some delicious cookies.

2. Have An Indoor Scavenger Hunt

If you’re stuck in a house full of kids, then don’t make them just sit and watch TV or play video games. This will help them release the massive amounts of energy that is just bottled up inside of them. Make a set of clues and put them around the house. You can get a little creative and even try and add a little storyline to it. It’ll definitely peek the kids’ interests.

3. Bubble Baths

If you’re home alone and really just want to relax and listen to the rain fall onto your roof or your favorite playlists, then have yourself an old-fashioned bubble bath. This will keep you soothe your mind and body as you soak in the bubbles of your favorite soap or bath bomb, whichever one you prefer.

4. Camp Inside

Who said you always needed to be outside in order to camp? If you have room, you can use a small tent to set up and camp indoors. You can even make your own tent out of pillows and blankets. Take your blankets and drape them over the couch and make the new tent comfy with tons of pillows. Don’t forget the snacks!

5. Have A Movie Marathon

Everyone picks their favorite movie and you all have your very own homemade movie screening. If you’re home alone, try and pick some movies that you haven’t seen in a long time. Pull out some of the classics that you might have enjoyed when you were younger. This is a great way to pass the time and relive some memories with these movies.

6. Drink Tea

This is a very simple thing to do while it’s raining, but this is another way to reduce stress and relax. Make your favorite tea, sit back, and listen to the falling rain as you drink your warm beverage. Wrap yourself in a blanket if you want. Just remember to relax.

7. Plan A Vacation

It is never too early to start planning ahead. Have you ever wanted to go on a trip with your friends or family, but never had the time to sit down and figure it all out? Well, now is your chance. It’s raining outside and you have nowhere to go. Just grab your laptop and try researching places to visit. This can help pass the time and get you to start thinking about the future and possibly start saving up for this awesome vacation trip!

The list goes on and on for things that you can do when you’re stuck inside the house on a rainy day. Look at this as an opportunity for you to do something different than what you do on a regular basis. Have some fun with this and you might surprise yourself with how much you can enjoy something different for a little bit.

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.
