Dear Starkville, Please Bring Back Lime Scooters.

If you aren't sure what Lime Scooters are, I'm sorry.

Dear Starkville, Please Bring Back Lime Scooters.

If you aren't sure what Lime Scooters are, they are scooters that you can pay to ride through an app. And when Starkville, MS got them at the beginning of this year, they brought my friends and I pure joy. For me, I enjoyed them so much because they reminded me so much of Razor scooters from the mid 2000s.

Lime Bikes and Scooters were operated by batteries that were charged, causing minimal effort to ride them. Another thing about the bikes and scooters is that you could locate them using the app, and the first ride was FREE!! I'm not sure about everyone else, but i'm on a college budget, so "Free" is my favorite word.

Before Lime Scooters, there were Lime Bikes on the MSU campus. These bikes were very useful if you lived on campus because you could get to your class faster. Almost every day, I would see a Lime bike in a tree, on top of a building, or even inside a building. However, the Lime Scooters were not allowed on campus, only Lime Bikes. And eventually, I started realizing that the bikes as well as the scooters started disappearing.

Even though Riding Lime Scooters in downtown Starkville made me fall off a couple of times, it was still a really fun thing to do after class with your friends to pass time. Not only did it remind me of riding my childhood pink Barbie Razor Scooter, it almost hurt as bad falling off of it.

Even though i'm not certain on why the Lime Scooters and Bikes were taken away, i'm sure it had something to do with the fact that bikes were always getting tied to trees and being put on top of buildings. Because Lime Scooters started showing up on campus even though they weren't supposed to be, this is probably another reason why both the bikes and scooters were taken away.

Starkville, I apologize that bikes were continuously put in trees, but I for one would love to have Lime Scooters as well as bikes returned to us.

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.
