I can't help my birthday!

In every friend group or squad there is the baby of the group. This is the youngest one and usually you can tell because they are more carefree and they are not sure what is going on. They are usually the lightweight because all of their friends can be like moms sometimes. Here are some ways to know if you are the baby of the friend group.

Your friends take care of your medical needs.

They bring you soup take your temperature and more. They get the splinter out of your foot and they have a whole pharmacy ready for your use. They make sure to let your teachers and other people in your life know what kind of sickness you have so that they can also worry about you. They know your medical history and what kinds of medicine you can and cannot have. They know all of your favorite comfort foods and how to make you feel better.

Your friends were doing adult things way before you.

Your friends were driving way before you even thought about it. They had their own debit cards and wrote a check while you probably still had a piggy bank. They probably did a lot of things by themselves like grocery shopping before you. Lucky you though because they can give you all sorts of advice on everything!

Your friends are very protective.

Your friends will take so much from other people, but when they see people giving it to you they go into protective mode. They will have your back no matter what. They protect you from people and experiences. They stand up for you and listen to your needs. They will go to the end of the earth looking ridiculous just to make sure you are okay.

Your friends act like your mom.

They pick you up and drop you off at your events. They give you wise advice. They let you know when you are about to do something stupid. They help you with daily activities whether if it is making a stressful phone call or shopping. They make sure you get all your meals in the day and send you encouraging texts. They keep you in line, well at least they try. Every new person in your life has to be approved by them, and you have a code word that can get you out of any situation.

You are so loved.

You have a whole group of people looking out for you and cheering you on. You have people who will take care of your and give you tough love when you need it. You know you will always have people there to help you with anything. They spoil you with guidance, their food, and all of their possessions because you are the baby. They let you be the silly tag along and you will always love being the baby.

So are you the baby of the friend group? It's nothing to be ashamed of, in fact it should be celebrated!

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.
