This past week has taken a toll on everyone. With all of the pain and fighting right now, I didn't want to write another article about my reactions to the not-so-great things going on in the world. Instead, I decided to spread some joy and positivity with some of the things in this world that I think are beautiful or that just make me happy. Enjoy!

1. Rainbows, just because they're absolutely beautiful and a complete surprise when they happen!

2. Snow, because waking up in the middle of the night after a snowfall and just listening to the world is one of my favorite things during the winter. Along with building snowmen!

3. Dogs, because they love you unconditionally and are always there for cuddles when you need them.

4. Cats, because they're soft and fluffy and cuddly. What more could you want?

5. Baby animals, because animals are even cuter when they are in their baby form!

6. Music: These songs are just a few of the songs I listen to when I want to get a little boost in my day!

"Force of Nature" -Bea Miller

"Walk Off the Earth" -Summer Vibe

"Lucky Day" -Hunter Hunted

7. Flowers, because nature's masterpieces make me smile!

8. Colors, because our world would be very dark without them!

9. Sunshine, because some sunshine can make any bad day a little bit better.

10. The ocean, because sitting and listening to (or even just watching a video of) the ocean is one of the most calming things ever.

11. Sunrises, because getting up early enough to see the sunrise may be a pain, but it is all worth it in the end.

12. Bonfires, because they don't all have to be as large as this one, but spending a night by the fire with friends is a beautiful way to spend a summer evening.

13. Stars, and space in general, because it's all so beautiful.

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.
