Every year Governors Ball aka Gov Ball, seems to be the second best thing to Coachella in terms of a festival like concert.

7. Kendrick Lamar: The Damn Tour

Not only is Kendrick Lamar going on tour, but he is bringing Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. This is probably one of the most talented groups of people that could go on tour together. Travis Scott is one of the best performers I have ever seen and if you don't go to this concert, you will regret it. Go see these guys on July 20th and 23rd at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, NY.

8. 4 Your Eyez Only World Tour: J Cole

Back in the fall of 2016 J Cole made it obvious he wasn't going on tour in 2017 after performing at The Meadows. He must have changed his mind so it would be a mistake not to see this amazing performer! Go see J Cole on August 1st or 2nd at the Barclays Center!

9. Coldplay: Head Full Of Dreams Tour

One of the last concerts of the summer is Coldplay. They have been around for a while, but their music never gets old. I saw them last summer and it was such an electrifying atmosphere. This concert was special because young kids to older adults were having just as much fun. They weren't supposed to be performing this summer, but they extended their tour because of the popular demand. This may be one of the last times Coldplay will go on tour; this isn't a concert you would want to miss. August 1st, MetLife Stadium, BE THERE!

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.
