7 Places You Should Visit In New York During Spring Break

If you heard college students were going away for spring break, what is the first place that pops into your head? If you answered Miami, Daytona Beach, Cancun, the Bahamas or Dominican Republic, you're not alone. Most people choose those places to spend their spring break because it is beautiful, warm and lively during this time of the year. However, if you want to spend spring break doing something different yet fun, you should spend it in New York! New York has so much to offer, even if you are a New Yorker, you should definitely visit these places!

1. The High Line

The High Line is a great place to get fresh air and enjoy the views of the city. Several decades ago, the High Line was open for trains to carry people and goods. Now, it's been renovated into a park that oversees the west side of Manhattan. It is great to look over and see all the people and cars 30 feet below you. There are also a few cute little sculptures on the High Line that will grab your attention.

2. Sugar Factory

After walking over a mile on the High Line, Sugar Factory is a great place to grab something to eat . However, you'll most likely be mesmerized by their variety of drinks. They have delicious goblets, which are huge mixed drinks filled with candies. My personal favorite is the Mai Tai (pictured below). They also have extreme milkshakes with lots of chocolates, candies and whip cream! Make sure you make a reservation early because this spot is always crowded!

3. Chelsea Piers Sports and Entertainment Complex

Chelsea Piers is a fun place to go with your friends. There are several options including indoor ice skating, rock climbing, basketball and so much more. They also have a bowling alley that opens until 3 am. With a club-like feel, you can also grab a drink as you lounge and drink at the bar in the alley.

4. Soho

Soho is an area in lower Manhattan. The area is a great place to walk around and enjoy the natural beauty and busyness of New York City. A lot of the side streets are cobblestone which is great for pictures. There are also neighborhood parks where you can chill out and eat some ice cream. They have lots of little boutiques, shops, and stores for those of you who appreciate a little retail therapy. Overall, the area itself is beautiful scene. There are also lots of bars where you can find great happy hour deals.

5. Little Italy

After walking around Soho, you may be a little hungry. Stop by Little Italy, an area with lots of Italian restaurants. The food is delicious and the desserts are great! The area is beautifully lit at night which is also great for photo ops!

6. Museums

New York has lots of museums. My personal favorite museums are the Whitney Museum and Museum of Modern Art. Besides the exhibits, they normally have interactive stations where you can make your own pieces of art to have as a memory. At the Whitney Museum, there are some pieces that are outside as well, which I think is very unique.

7. 10Below

Have you seen videos on Facebook with ice cream parlors that mix and roll up the ice cream ? Well look no further: 10Below has just that. Lovely customized ice cream that looks great and taste even better. Check out this place with a few locations in the city!

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.

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.
