Working In Daycare Is The Best Birth Control Ever

At the age of 19 or 20, many girls from the past are making bold moves for their lives. While scrolling through my Instagram feed I may see dozens of girls my age from high school either getting married or having a child. While most the time I may look at this as "Why so soon?" other times I may feel a case of baby fever coming on...

I absolutely adore children and I really like my part-time seasonal daycare job. It is very entertaining at work, to say the least. When I walk into work I will not be observing the same thing every day.

One child will go from sick to healthy, while another will do the complete opposite. Some will say things they shouldn't and you will be surprised that they even know the word that they just said. They appeal to me every single day, lol!

Some will untie their shoes for fun, multiple times in order to ask a teacher to tie them back. Then you will have parents who act psycho and seem to ignore that a teacher is watching 12, 5 year old's at once.

Contrary to my previous job before my daycare job, I would be so angry just to go into work because I hated it so much. However, with this job, it is a totally different dynamic. I am currently on my winter break for school so I am trying to grab as many hours as possible to replenish my bank account. With this being said, this allows me to revisit these scenarios and suppress my baby fever once again!

Childcare is the best birth control ever because it allows you to realize all that there is behind a cute little face. There is a lot more to keeping a little one than holding it. While children do need to be nurtured they need essentials to be provided for them. I have realized that in the past if I was married and financially stable by 25, I would be ready to have a child.

With this job, I have realized all of the many more factors that parents have to deal with, with a little one.

With all of this being said, I am ready to go into work for today, but I will use this as another lesson that the time is not now, nor is it anytime soon!

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.
