7 Types Of Beachgoers

The beach is a place adored by many. 18-year-olds and 80-year olds alike enjoy the same things: the sound of the waves, the sand between their toes, and the beachy breeze that can only be found on the coast. If you've ever been to the beach in your lifetime, you know that there is a diverse plethora of people that roam our local beaches. Chances are, you fall into one of these categories.

1. The Throwers

These people just love to throw -- frisbees, footballs, bocce balls, and baseballs. But not just anywhere -- typically, they prefer to engage in this activity as close to innocent sunbathers as possible. Throwers consist of rambunctious college kids, the baseball dad and son, and the overzealous bocce ball bunch.

2. The Loud Ones

This kind of speaks for itself. The loud ones are loud, frankly. With country hits blaring through a stereo, excessive laughter, and obnoxious squealing, you'd think you're at a 13-year-old's first guy-girl birthday party.

3. The Shell Collectors

Have you ever been to the beach and not seen a quiet shell collector on the prowl for sand dollars? These people keep to themselves and mind their own business as they scan the shore for shells. This group consists mainly of the retired population.

4. The Photographers

These are the kings and queens of the selfie stick, artsy photos, and sunset time lapses. They are sure to document their entire day by updating their Snapchat and posting photos to social media. This group is far too consumed with taking pictures to enjoy all that the beach has to offer.

5. The Inconsiderate Ones

If you've ever been hit with a gust of sand, you can probably thank the inconsiderate ones. These are the people who park their beach chair two inches from yours even though there are miles of open beach. These are the towel shakers, space invaders, and mood crashers.

6. The Family From Out of Town

This bunch doesn't come to the beach often, but when they do, they do it big. They hobble through the sand with boogie boards, shovels, and a giant cooler in hand. This group is stocked with sunscreen, sandwiches, and bottles of Gatorade.

7. The "Girls Weekend" Group

This is a group of middle-aged moms who decided to embark on a weekend getaway to escape the pains of motherhood. Through walks on the beach, seafood dinners and Facebook photo shoots, it's evident that these moms are having the time of their lives.

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.
