I'm Your Older Sister Now, Here Are Some Tips

I am an older sister, and I absolutely love it. However, I know there are plenty of times I've wished I had one myself to talk to or get advice from. So, if you don't have an older sister and want some generic sisterly advice, look no further.

1. Drug store products work great, you don't have to splurge just find what works for you.

2. Drink water!! I don't do it nearly enough but it could probably solve a lot of your problems,

3. Charge your phone at night.

4. Procrastinating is hard to avoid, but if you're going to wait to the last minute save enough last minutes to do it.

5. If you think you look cute one day, take pictures! Just for a moment even! You don't have to do anything with them, but just let yourself take some moments to enjoy.

6. I swear by Pinterest use it for anything and everything.

7. Fill out your planner every week!

8. Don't open text messages if you're not ready to respond or at least plan to respond. You'll definitely forget about them.

9. There are so so so many things more interesting about you than your weight. Also it depends on so many things, please don't fixate on it. Also BMI is stupid. Ignore it.

10. Something making you happy is a good enough reason to do it. You should be happy.

11. Establish a morning routine that makes you happy! Start your day right.

12. If you don't complete said routine, it's okay!! Not a failure it just wasn't what you needed today.

13. Be kind to yourself and to other people, they will remember it.

14. Wear! What! You want! I promise if you try an outfit thats out of your comfort zone, or you dress up more than other people you are only going to get compliments. No one cares what you're wearing! There's no such thing as trying too hard.

15. Moisturize every day, and get your face wet before you do.

16. The only way to get someone to like you back is to be yourself. Changing yourself is bad and also pointless, as it usually doesn't work.

17. Don't share mascara!

18. Always have a little cash in your phone case just in case.

19. Big pants little top!

20. Playing games with people is a waste of time, and it won't make you happier in the long run. Honesty is such a refresher.

21. Always keep deodorant and extra feminine products in your bag.

22. Invest in a big pair of hoops and a little pair.

23. Tote bag instead of a backpack when its hot out! Walking across campus in 80+ weather will make you sweat, and it always made me anxious for my next class. Tote bag is a lifesaver.

24. Just take off your make up before bed. It's worth the walk to the bathroom.

25. Fight for the things you want in your life, but honestly the things that are really supposed to be in your life will not be hard to get to stick around.

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.

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.
