In order of appearance:

Tell The Wolves I'm Home by: Carol Rifka Brunt

Set in 1987 this book was incredibly well written, the point of view differed from anything I had recently read. People are comparing it to To Kill A Mockingbird so.....You get it.

House Of Leaves by: Mark Danielewski

Scare your actual pants off. This book is incredible. Seriously don't read it after dark, traumatic (first hand experience) All I can say is the house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside...How could you not want to find out why?

The Bricks That Built The Houses by: Kate Tempest

In this season of political unrest, consider this quiet albeit articulate book a very literal gift (you see what I did there? It's actually a gift and a gift of literature...yikes) The NYT Book Review says of Tempest 'language, passion and politics, and if that isn't life, what is?' This book is stirring and I cannot recommend highly enough!

Blood And Earth by: Kevin Bales

This was a book, as I mentioned in my video and brief description that was assigned for a class last semester. We never got to it (as a class) but I read it cover to cover in 72 hours and found it to be eye-opening, jaw-dropping, and since I'm all about the alliteration, heart-wrenching. If you're wondering about the future of the planet, and curious about the links between humans and ecology- this is a very manageable and interesting read!

The Roommates by: Stephanie Wu

'True tales of friendship, rivalry, romance and disturbingly close quarters.' This book hits close to home for anyone who has recently had to share their precious space with a roommate, or still is. If you think you're the only one with a roommate agreement, wondering who's dirty cup is in the sink, or who's turn it is to buy toilet paper- fear not- we're all struggling.

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.
