If you really want to get to know someone, ask them for fun facts. They can be the most random information but it can tell you what people find most interesting about themselves. When I told my friends that I wrote for an online forum, they told me to write an article about myself. I figured, "why not?" So this one is for them.

1. In 2011, my family took a 30-day road trip Out West, stopping at all the major monuments and state parks. I started a scrapbook in 2012 and have yet to finish.

2. I jumped off the Stratosphere in Las Vegas and yearn to go skydiving.

3. I was supposed to be name Kylie Rose. If I was a boy, I was going to be named Dillan.

4. As a Thanksgiving tradition, my family would take a cruise each year. I have been on seven or eight.

5. Growing up, I had a cockatoo, hamsters, a guinea pig, fish, hermit crabs, turtles, and a bearded dragon. I was never allowed to have a cat or dog.

14. I'm the youngest of four children with two older half-sisters and an older brother.

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.
