5 Reasons Why Receiving A Package Is Awesome

I recently ordered a new Bluetooth speaker off of Amazon and got a great deal because it was Cyber Monday, the most popular online shopping day of the year. After ordering my speaker, I'm not going to lie, I did get pretty excited for it to arrive at my doorstep. As each day passed, I was checking where my package was with the tracking number UPS had given me. The anticipation of its arrival kept building. Finally, after much waiting, about an hour before I wrote this article, my package had arrived! Here are my top five reasons why receiving a package is awesome:

It can make your day so much better.

So, it might just be me but if I come home after a long day of classes or work and see that I've gotten a package from somewhere then my spirits are immediately lifted. It's just a great feeling seeing that box of whatever it might be with your name on it.

It can relieve stress.

You may be asking why this is a reason, but hear me out on this. I'm sure we've all had some instance where we've ordered something online and then there was some sort of shipping problem. As much as you don't want to be stressed about your item being lost or jumbled around in the mail, there is some stress that comes with it. Having a package arrive in those five to seven business days, or whatever shipping timeframe you choose, without any hiccups in the process is a great feeling.


If your package isn't full of that Styrofoam macaroni stuff and comes bearing the gift of bubble wrap, then it's a great day. Bubble wrap is so much fun to pop and you can feel like a kid again while popping it. Thank you to whoever invented it for such a wonderful thing.

Sharing the glory within your box.

My freshman year of school, I received my fair share of care packages while living in my dorm. Being the nice guy I am, I would share some of the food or goodies I received from home with my friends. In turn, my friends would be nice enough to reciprocate when they received a care package too. Friendship is a wonderful thing.

The small victory.

I think the best part about receiving a package is that small victory of getting your new item in the mail. No matter what it is, it's something that you might have worked towards saving up for or just have been waiting for the right time to buy it. Millions of packages go around the world every day, and there could always be something wonderful coming to your doorstep.

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.
