3 Ways To Stay Connected With Friends That Will Brighten Your Day

Just because you haven't seen each other in a while doesn't mean they're not there!

I know personally, I have not seen my college friends since March 6th, and all this time and distance has me missing them so much more. Everybody says that your college friends become your family, and the people who say that are 100% right! As much as I am looking forward too reconnecting with them in August, there is no time like the present! So, here are a couple of things I have done to stay in touch with my friends!

If you have some cash that you are willing to spend, a great website you could visit is https://sendafriend.co! This website allows you to pick out a stuffed animal of your choice and send it to someone you are thinking about with a personalized notecard! When it arrives to your friends house it will be in a baby blue box that says "Someone Loves You". Another great thing about this website is that when you go on it you get to spin a wheel for discounts! The first time I used it I got 10% off which was awesome! I would highly recommend getting this gift for somebody that you care about!

Another thing that you can do with your friends to stay connected is Zoom! Since all of our classes were on Zoom for the spring semester, we all knew how to use and would set up meetings with each other. We were able to watch YouTube videos, have dance parties, and just talk about our days all through this app. Zoom is 100% free and allows you to share your screen and send chats in private or to the whole group!

The final thing that I enjoy doing with my friends is online games! In today's world, the internet provides so many free multiplayer games that you can play with your friends! My personal favorites are Uno, Club Penguin (for old times sake) and Guess Who! Although I only listed three, if you type in multiplayer games into Google you can find so many more!

Hopefully this gave you some ideas as to how to keep in close contact with some college friends that you are missing right now. But, do not worry everyone - August is right around the corner!

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.
