The dreaded first date.

There’s a first time for everything, but what if you had the chance to experience those “firsts” with your date? While millennials are slowly making “dinner and a movie” a thing of the past, we’ve got to admit that it’s easy to run out of ideas.

I’m not saying that all of these dates are 100 percent practical, but they’re definitely worthwhile. I think we’d all love to experience one of these dates, even if we didn’t actually end up dating the other person.

1. Go on a helicopter ride.

Might as well conquer your fear of heights as you’re clutching onto your date as if he’s the only thing that’s keeping you sane. I’m sure he’ll love it.

2. Attend a comedy show.

Okay, this one isn’t totally unconventional, but there’s nothing better than getting an idea of what your date’s sense of humor is like.

3. Enroll in a cooking class.

There’s nothing more romantic than learning how to make homemade pasta together, am I right, ladies? Not to mention you’ll get a taste of your date’s culinary skills.

4. Pitch a tent and call it a day.

Find a nice scenic view, bring along your portable speaker, and get to know your date as you go “camping,” even if it’s just for a couple of hours.

5. Test your endurance with indoor rock climbing.

My best friend and her boyfriend absolutely LOVE going rock climbing together. Definitely a bit of a work-out, but nothing you can’t handle!

6. Go rollerblading together.

Okay, I don’t remember the last time I went rollerblading either, but at least you’d be able to decide if you love or hate your date’s laugh after this one.

7. Visit an amusement park.

Because there’s no better feeling than having your date win that stuffed purple teddy bear just for you.

8. Take a coffee tour of your city.

You might get extremely caffeinated, but nobody wants to be depresso so it’s all good.

9. Have lunch in a beer garden.

In case you wanted to channel all those European vibes and get pretty drunk in the process.

10. Go dancing at a Latin club.

If he sucks at dancing, just remember that it’s very dark, you can have another mojito, and easily pretend that he’s Enrique Iglesias or Marc Anthony.

11. Browse a used bookstore.

Challenge your date to pick out a book that he thinks you would read and do the same for him.

12. Attend a sporting event.

Don’t forget to impress your date with your knowledge of the sport. Yes, girls actually know a thing or two about sports.

13. Grab breakfast together.

Forget the popular belief that dates have to happen after 7 PM and ditch your LBD for your pajamas. Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme, but wear something comfy and enjoy the fact that you can spend time with your date before the sun goes down.

14. Find your inner zen with yoga in the park.

Outdoor yoga is becoming very popular in many US cities, so why not see how flexible he really is. Be prepared for any sexual innuendos that may come out of his mouth.

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.
