The beach is great but some things need to stop

4 Things I Absolutely Hate About The Beach...
chicago news

The beach is a place I like to call home because it's where I'm most sane and at peace, but there are certain things that annoy me when I'm there.

1.Seeing people you know, that you don’t want to sit by.

Yeah the beach is a place where everyone usually goes to when it's hot outside, but if you go with a few friends you only go WITH THEM because you didn’t want to spend your beach day with someone else. Then all of a sudden, you see a few kids from your high school, or your childhood, and they all decide to migrate by you. It ends up being a whole reunion on the beach. All you really had in mind was having a relaxing day with a few friends, but nope. Maybe next time.

2.People that are too drunk on the beach.

Yeah I get it: summertime. It's time to loosen up and have a good time, but when it's 1 pm on a Wednesday and you are yelling all over the beach saying “IM DRUNK”, then you need to simmer down. Sometimes i'll see girls running on the beach falling into the water and just knocking out. Some are even being chased by their friends until they fall into the water and make a huge scene. I usually go on ‘mom mode’ and try to help most people I see like that because what if it was one of my close friends, but if it constantly happens, it’s a bother.

3.When the sand is so hot it burns your feet.

If I ever get blisters on my feet, I want it to be because I’m wearing some new Louis Vuitton heels (that I don’t have), not because I’m on the beach trying to have a relaxing day! That feeling once you take your shoes off to walk on the sand and you feel the soles of your feet asking of rescue is when you bolt straight to the water. The rest of the time on the beach you try to play it cool by standing on your towel or just honestly laying down the whole time being unbothered by the fact you have new blisters that hurt so badly.

4.Used diapers lying in the sand.

Dear moms and dads, once you change your beautiful babies on the sand can you please just throw away the diaper? There are millions of trashcans located specially on the sand for people to throw away their trash, and yes a diaper happens to be trash. Please and thank you from everyone else on the beach.

5.Sand somehow getting into your drink.

When I’m so thirsty coming in for a reach of bottle and then I feel sand in my throat, it’s not a good time. Millions of people step on sand, and I really don’t want that in my body system! Sand is everywhere so beware you might have it in your mouth sometime during your stay.

Besides that I love the beach. I was a beach baby growing up, and I can't wait until one day my kids become cute little surfers as well!

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.
