I have had red hair for about three years now, and I truly love it, but with having such a bright feature comes to some pretty interesting remarks. I’m sure anyone who has or has had colored hair has gotten a few of these and understands having to awkwardly laugh them off.

1. “Do you know your hair is red?”

What?! My hair is red? I had absolutely no idea.

2. “Is that natural?”

Why yes, yes it is.

3. “You must really want attention”

Yeah not from you, sorry.

4. “Why would you do that to yourself?”

It’s a never-ending rebellion stage.

5. "I think natural would look better on you."

I think you need a face lift, but I wasn't going to tell you that.

6. “Did you fall into a bucket of paint before you got here?”

This one is clever as hell, A for effort.

7. “Couldn’t miss you in a crowd full of people.”

This is true, and is a very useful tactic.

8. “Should I do my hair like that?”

I’m going to tell you yes and that it will look great, but it won’t.

9. “You’re so brave!”

Yeah, I’m a true Moses.

10. “It’s cute cause you’re pretty.”

a backhanded compliment at its finest.

11. “Did you do that for *insert closest holiday* ?”

Yes, obviously I colored my hair to show my enthusiasm for flag day.

12. *To my mother* “How can you let her do that?”

Harsh, but after looking at your hair I’m over it.

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.

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.
