Living with thin hair should be worthy of an award.

I just can't imagine that girls with luxurious manes have as many problems as us less fortunate gals. They're always like "I have too much hair!" Yeah, well most of my problems stem from having not enough hair.

1. Ponytails

These are most girls "go to lazy look" or something they can even pull off for a night out, but for girls struggling with thin hair, it looks like you put a scrunchy around a couple pieces of angel hair spaghetti. AND It's almost guaranteed your scalp is going to make an appearance.

2. Having to wash it every day

Because if you don't, you'll have to use an entire can of dry shampoo to try and hide the greasiness.

3. Styles are limited

Imagine this, sitting around with your friends talking about your future dream weddings, what you want your dress to look like, what you want your bridesmaids to wear, and how you want your hair to look.....all fine and dandy, until you remember how your thin hair is and how little you can do with it.

4. Hats are tricky

Oh? you want to wear a beanie? Do you want to also look bald? Yes? Ok then wear the beanie

5. Panicking every time a strand of hair falls out

What if one day its your last piece? It's probably and irrational fear, but every time you look in the drain of the shower, or at all the hairs that have accumulated in your brushes you die a little inside in fear of one day your hair being thinner and thinner, until it's gone.

6. It blowing in the wind

All your thick haired friends look hot when the wind blows their hair, but you find yourself using more and more hairspray to avoid such disasters.

7. You're tired of people pointing it out

If ONE MORE person says "omg your hair is so thin!!!" I may lose my cool. I know it's thin...it's attached to my head.....I struggle with it every day

8. And even more tired of "Well at least your hair isn't thick!"

Ok, then let's trade and we'll see how fast you want your thick hair back.

But on the plus side, we've never had to worry about leaving the house with wet hair, because it's pretty much dry right after we turn the shower off.

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.
