There's a lot about bodily health that people don't understand, and it ends harming them in the end. Here are some things about your health that you should know by the time you're in college.

1. There is no shame in a mental health day

Really, there isn’t. If you need the day, just take it, it really helps. The only thing that comes from pushing too hard is breaking down.

2. Deodorant is your best friend

It’s cheap, there’s a million different scents for you to pick, and no more BO smell.

3. Pushing too hard in a workout benefits no one

You’ll just end up hurting yourself, and working out isn’t about hurting yourself. Push yourself, but just mind your limits.

4. It’s less about cutting out food and more about eating in proportion

Seriously, it is. You can eat ice cream and candy, just watch your portions and don’t forget to balance out the rest of your meals.

5. Washing your hands is NOT optional

Bad bacteria is everywhere, and that bad bacteria can get you sick. Washing your hands takes 2 seconds and POOF, bad bacteria gone.

6. Vitamins are always helpful

They boost your immune system, and what harm is there in that?

7. Brush & Floss

Your teeth are extremely important, so treat them with care. And you can’t forget your gums, since they hold your teeth in. Brush your tongue to avoid bad breath.

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.

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.
