I've read a lot of books and from each one, I've learned a lot. There are so many quotes that I got from each book I've read that I felt are important to keep in my life. They gave me new ideas and made me see in new perspectives. They could state something crazy or something that I already know and still make me think about it. There are also many ways to connect with each one, they can be interpreted in different ways, also. There are some quotes that are from the same book, but it just means I can take more from the book.

"That anyone is capable of anything at any time, given a certain set of condition." - Neverworld Wake

"I don't care if there are cracks in us, we are still us. We don't have to be perfect to be right." - Midnight At The Electric

"That's just the way: a person does a low-down thing, and then he don't want to take no consequences of it. Thinks as longs as he can hide it, it ain't no disgrace." - Huckleberry Finn

"It wasn't the right thing to say, but sometimes these things come out. You could take only so much blind, stupid ignorance without cracking around the edges a bit." - The Bane Chronicles

"When you fight a monster, be careful you don't become a monster." - Gemina

"You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you." - The Fault In Our Stars

There are many, many more quotes that have inspired me and the number will just keep increasing with every book that I read. I will continue to learn from each book and discover new ideas and perspectives and travel to many places around the universe. Each quote is different in its own way. They may tell me the same thing, but it doesn't stop me from writing them down and sharing them with others.

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.

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.
