Dear Mother Nature

I love you, but we need to have a little chat.

Dear Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

You know how much I love you. You're beautiful, you give us the ability to live literally on your skin, but girl... this weather, has got to stop.

I understand, I really do, that life is hard, and especially as women, we can be super indecisive. No judgment here on that. But, you're really hurting my feelings about this whole, 40-degree weather for one day then a snow storm the next... you know what I mean?

I know that I'm here in New York and you're probably thinking, "You need to leave this place, like, it's New York, come on." But here's my argument.

I know it's going to snow here, every winter, forever (well, let's hope. Because if it doesn't snow in New York than that's a problem), but let's get back to normal seasons! What do you think?! Let me break it down for you.

Spring. Spring is the second season of the year, and it's the most uplifting. When the snow starts to melt, the flowers start to grow, and the birds start chirping, ugh. I love it. Sometimes we get a little snow in April but girl, I get it. No one's perfect. You're trying your best and I am here to back you up, always.

Let's head to summer. Summer is one you do an amazing job with. Sunshine, some thunderstorms, the heat, humidity. Amazing. Everything is where it's supposed to be. You're doing amazing.

Next, to Fall (my favorite)! Fall is just an amazing season. The leaves changing gives the air a specific scent. It's the season of apples, pumpkins, HALLOWEEN, and sweaters. So beautiful! But sometimes, you throw us a little curve ball, with a little pre-Winter snow. Do you get impatient, I mean, it is beautiful! But girl, that snow is cold! Can we keep Autumn and Winter separate? The snow is just... ugh. We all know it's coming and just want it to hold off. I think we're only really safe from it in Summer. Wait... right?

And here we are. Winter. The longest 3 and a half months of all of our lives. I know you wanna keep us on our toes so throwing in some warmer days and teasing us with the snow melting is a little cheeky. Once in a month is okay, like you can get away with that. Twice in a month, eh. But girl, when you start throwing in a 45-degree day each week........WHY. You're driving us CRAZY! WE ARE CRAVING THAT SUNSHINE, ONCE WE GET IT FOR ONE DAY AND YOU TAKE IT AWAY....IT'S LIKE TAKING CANDY FROM A BABY!

KEEP THE SEASONS SEPARATE! Whenever we think the snow is starting to melt, we get tricked and wake up the next morning with 3 inches! Stop! It's madness!

I'm sorry. I got out of control. I just feel so emotional. I just hope you understand how much this means to us.

Thank you, and I love you always,

A Cold New York Girl

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.
