10 Things That Happen After Chopping Off Almost 10 Inches Of Your Hair
Nathan Deutschman

I randomly decided to chop eight inches of my long hair to donate it to "Children with Hair Loss." This was a very bold move for me because I have never had my hair shorter than mid-way down my back since I cut it to my chin in third grade.

I'm glad I did it though, and here are 10 things have had happened since I did it.

1. Everyone mentions it.

"Oh, you cut your hair! It looks so good!"

2. You have to adjust the amount of shampoo and conditioner you use.

And probably save a lot of money because you're not using as much.

3. You have to figure out how to style it.

Your old hair styles probably won't work out with the new hair.

4. It's hard to get used to.

I keep thinking my hair is still long so it is weird when it just stops as I'm stroking it.

5. Besides the length, your hair might look different.

Mine definitely has more wave to it

6. You feel powerful.

You sort of get an adrenaline rush afterwards.

7. You question if you ever want long hair again.

Short hair is definitely low maintenance.

8. You post about it a lot.

It's so new and fresh! You want to show it off.

9. You start thinking of what else you could do.

Like dying your hair because it would be a lot cheaper now

10. It just feels good.

Knowing someone might be wearing your hair on their head is a good feeling.

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.

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.
