A Reminder To Take It Easy On Yourself During Quarantine.

If you're like me and quickly fall into isolation and a terrible sleeping schedule due to the slightest change, it's okay. Do not force yourself to do more than you can handle. Staying indoors and away from your loved ones can be deteriorating to some people's mental health. It also takes away a lot of physical activity that many people rely on to get them out of bed in the morning.

If you're out of a job, working from home, or even still commuting to work, this is an extremely stressful time for all of us. It is important above all else to check in with yourself during these times.

If you are used to getting up early, try to set an alarm so you can keep your schedule; even if it means getting up and walking around the house for a little. If you started staying up late every night like me, try to let yourself get some sleep in the morning but try to not linger in bed. Staying in bed all day can make you overtired and drowsy which makes it hard to complete even the smallest of tasks.

One of the things I like to do to try and stay productive is making lists of the things I want to complete that day, or for the rest of the week. Even if you don't get to them all, crossing off some of those activities proves that you are staying active even for a little bit.

Do not put yourself down for not being as active as all the people you see posting on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. You do not need to write a book, learn a new language, or build a spaceship if you are not up to it. Do what makes you happy and what makes you relax.

I hope you are all staying safe during these times. Above all, take care of yourself and your loved ones. Do what makes you happy.

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.
