8 Signs You Are A True Cape Codder
The High Pointe Inn

Cape Cod. There's no quite place like it. But the only people that truly understand this are the true Cape Codders. Aren't sure if that's you?

Here's 8 ways to know:

1. It's on Cape.

Trust me, if you say it wrong, we'll make sure to correct you.

2. You aren't a local if you vacation here every summer.

Many claim to be "locals" on Cape. If you are one of the many that vacation here every summer but don't live here year round: You. Are. Not. A. Local. I've lost track of how many times I've had to tell people this.

3. You know the Lobster Claw theme song by heart.

Every single word. Honestly, it's sad if you don't know it at this point.

4. When tourists ask for the best places to go, you send them to the worst.

I'm not going to lie, I do this all of the time. There is no way I'm telling everyone my secrets. Chances are, if you ask a local for the best places, they will send you to the most crowded/worst places on Cape Cod. We like to keep some things to ourselves!

5. You know that tourists don't know how to use rotaries.

The amount of times that I've had to lay on the horn, or move out of the way because a dingle-brain can't figure out how to use a rotary is outrageous. And yes, it's called a rotary. If you call it a traffic circle, you're dead to me.

6. You work 40+ hours a week during the summer.

Most of us are out here working doubles.

7. You know the absolute best places to watch the sunset.

And in case you missed it, just check your Snapchat. I guarantee there will be at least 15 stories of it.

8. You get excited once Labor Day Weekend is over.

Finally, you get the Cape back to yourself. Just before all the good places close down for the season!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
