Yes, I'm Still In College, But That Hasn't Stopped Me From Planning Out My Dream House

I want my friends and family to feel welcomed in my home.

Yes, I'm Still In College, But That Hasn't Stopped Me From Planning Out My Dream House

Everyone wants to live in a nice home with the design and features they like. I am going to share my dream house and what I would like to have it look like. Ever since as a child I always dreamed of having my house in a nice neighborhood where everyone gets along.

I live in an area where it is not recommended to be close to your neighbors because they are not the best crowd to hang out with. I want to be able to knock on their door and ask for a favor without feeling awkward.

Now since we talked about the neighborhood, we can talk about the driveway. I want a nice clean driveway that's paved well. When my family or friends come by to visit, I want them to see a big available parking lot waiting for them. I know attending family barbecues can be a hassle when you have to park all the way down the street and then walk back up it again.

I don't want that, I want my visitors to feel welcomed by having an available space for them them to park and not worry about tickets. There's nothing worse than driving up to your friend's house to have a great time and only to get a ticket. Getting a fine to go see your friend isn't always the best!

Now as for the actual home, I want it to have a master bedroom, two or three small rooms for my future children, a living room, and a place downstairs where my family can relax. I want to have a game room, so to speak, where people children can play and a nice backyard where the adults can relax and drink.

I enjoy having family barbecues, especially during the summer when there is grilled food and a nice view of the outdoors. Nothing can't beat that and have music blasting so everyone can hear it.

I have always admired brick houses, it is a classic design that can never go out of fashion. I want mine to be gray with a white border and a black or dark blue roof. I want to have nice lightning with some beautiful chandeliers to add elegancy.

Lastly, I want this house to be passed down from one generation to another, so I want to build a secret stair case that will lead up to a nice view or balcony. I want the secret stair case to be decorated with quotes or woodcarvings from my family. In the balcony I want there to be a bookcase full of good reads and a small built-in speaker to play some classical or soothing music.

This is my dream house, I would like to know what your dream house features are, so feel free to comment below if you have any ideas! Achieving things like your dream house can be attainable if you put your mind to it. Best of luck and happy summer!

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.
