Dear FSU, It's Time To Fix Your Parking Situation, Or Lack Thereof

I'm tired of leaving three hours early just to find parking.

If you go to FSU, you are probably familiar with the nightmare that is parking on campus. The only times that you are guaranteed a parking spot are before 7:00 am and after 5:00 pm. The times in between are filled with driving around in never ending circles hoping to get lucky to catch someone leaving.

Because I live at home in Tallahassee, I have to park on campus. I leave strictly three hours before my class starts in order to get a parking spot, and even then, it takes around an hour to an hour and a half to find a spot.

FSU is a really big school, and it keeps getting bigger. I feel as though each year they brag about how many freshmen are coming in, but when they brag about that, the rest of us are begging them to not come. They keep building more dorms but have the same amount of parking garages. Or better yet, how about that brand new Oceanography building? Or how about the fact that they're spending millions on redoing the Union? It's like they're asking themselves what they can build or fix as long as it's not a parking garage.

Now, I have many ideas on how Florida State can fix this issue, here are just a few.

1. Don't allow freshman to have cars on campus, and require them to live on campus.

Do they really need cars on campus? With the growing popularity of Uber and Lift, the need for personal cars is just not there if they are not living off campus.

2. Sell parking spots.

This is the best way. Seniority should have first choice. It is that simple.

3. Build more parking garages.

Honestly, I feel like FSU is building like 47 things right now, but NONE of them are parking garages.

I am asking you nicely, FSU, please use one of my ideas to fix your parking situation. It is almost enough for me to want to leave your school.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
