Sometimes we all get a little bored of our regular routines throughout the week. You can only sit in a coffee shop for so many hours before you need a change of pace. Find some fun new things to spice up your friend group. Grab a group of friends, or just go solo!

1. Go to a Chinese buffet.

If you're gonna be bloated, be bloated together.

2. Build a fort!

Air mattresses, pillows, blankets, or free wooden pallets outside of Home Depot will all suffice depending on your terrain.

3. Watch Dr. Pimple Popper...

Theres no better form of bonding than shared struggle.

4. Create a joke Tinder.

Making a joke tinder or a group tinder are hilarious ways to get over rejection.

5. Stage an intervention.

Gang up on your friend who has an addiction. From online shopping to iced coffee, we all need a friend to stop us when enough is enough.

6. Volunteer for a charity. 

Go volunteer at an animal shelter, a hospital, or another location in the area that needs some extra love.

7. Recreate celebrity looks at the nearest thrift shop.

Go to a thrift shop and have a contest of who can come up with the most creative look.

8. Explore abandoned places

Find cool abandoned buildings or areas around town and explore.

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.

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.

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.
