7 Reasons Costco Is Every College Kid's Real Bae

It truly is the most magical place on Earth.

7 Reasons Costco Is Every College Kid's Real Bae

A few weekends ago, my friends and I took a trip to Costco. I had never seen a group of college kids become so excited about something. That's when I realized that Costco is a very special place for college students.

1. It's Like Disneyland

Walking through those doors, and seeing the world of possibility before you, is like entering the gates of the Magic Kingdom for the first time.

2. Buying In Bulk

College kids go through food and anything else extremely quickly. Giving them the chance to buy in mass amounts for cheap prices makes everything all that much better.

3. Free Food

Who doesn't love walking around Costco and sampling the different products they have to offer.

4. The Prices 

We're all broke. Plus, there's nothing better than the feeling of buying a dozen large croissants for $8.

5. People Watching

So, shopping isn't for everyone. Take a seat on some of the comfortable lounge furniture Costco is selling and sit back and watch a show.

6. Wandering 

Getting off of campus for a few hours is already a bonus. Why not walk up and down every aisle and look at every product offered there.

7. The Books

For book lovers, the prices of the novels there will blow your mind. There's nothing like looking at your favorite hardcover book and seeing it marked down to almost half its price.

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.
