To The People Who Hate Winter

And all of the misery that comes along with it.

To The People Who Hate Winter

In New Jersey on Christmas Eve, it was the perfect temperature of 65 degrees. I mean, yes, maybe that's because of global warming and possibly the fact that the world is ending, but in retrospect, it was pretty amazing... for people who hate winter weather, that is.

A few days ago, I went outside to see snow on the ground. This should not come as a shock because I live in North Jersey where it snows almost all winter and it was January, but for some reason, I could not believe my eyes. This meant that winter was here; that I was going to be forced to walk to class with wind slapping my face in a few weeks, to the constant chill of my hands even with gloves on, to stepping out of the shower and being freezing, and to scraping ice off my car that will never heat up.

I understand that winter is snowboarding/skiing season or whatever, but if you hate winter like me, you understand: winter is the worst and it should not exist.

1. Wind slaps you constantly -- hard. Is it 30 degrees outside? Well with winds of 500 mph it will feel like -7!

2. If you are unaware of snow, it will get in your shoes, and you will be miserable.

3. It is so cold no matter where you go - in your car? Freezing. In class? Even colder. In your dorm? Forget about it.

4. You are literally trapped in the coldness of winter because cars never want to heat up until you arrive at your destination.

5. Debating a shower is a given. "If I get out, I might freeze to death. If I go in, what if we lose hot water? Because if I get out, I might freeze to death."

6. Walking to class is a death trap and should be illegal.

7. You are usually in a bad mood half of the day because of how cold you are.

8. You are forced to gain weight and go into hibernation because at college, the gym is just too far of a walk.

9. You start to wonder if you even remember what sunlight or warmth feels like.

10. You remember that spring is coming; or that you can also plan on moving to the Caribbean.

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.
