7 Fun Holidays To Celebrate This Spring Break

A lot of schools just started their spring break. My school is one of them, and, having just finished finals for our second term, I thought it'd be a good idea to find something to celebrate every day while we recover from that. Here are some holidays coming up this week!

1. March 14th - Pi Day

Ah, the perfect day to rationalize eating too much pie. This day has to do with the infinite number or pi and not math really, but if you do like math, consider competing in Pizza Hut's Pi Day math contest. Three questions ranging in difficulty from high to PhD level (and created by a Princeton professor) will be posted online and three people can win 3.14 years of free pizza! I love pizza so much I have to at least try.

2. March 15th - True Confessions Day

They say keeping secrets just drives you crazy and shaves years off your life, so this is as good a day as any to confess the things you've always wanted to get off your chest. Don't get yourself into trouble if you don't need to, though. You know what they say: What they don't know won't hurt them... most of the time.

3. March 16th - Lip Appreciation Day

We constantly use our lips for everything from eating to talking to kissing, so shout out to them! Imagine how weird people would look without lips... yep, I appreciate them.

4. March 17th - St. Patrick's Day

Growing up I didn't know anything about St. Patrick's Day, but I got used to people wearing green and punching whoever didn't whenever it came around. According to legend, the real St. Patrick was an Irish missionary that used the iconic three-leaved shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity. That doesn't explain why kids punch each other or become obsessed with finding leprechauns, but it's fun anyway.

5. March 17th - Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

Camp Fire’s Absolutely Incredible Kid Day is a day to honor young people by asking adults to write encouraging letters to the great kids in their lives. I think this is a great idea! Kids are just tiny people and want to feel appreciated too.

6. March 18th - Awkward Moments Day

Everyone has those moments when you do something and cringe for like seven years, but this is a day to laugh all that off. Who knows? Someday you may look back and think some of those moments are hilarious, so try to spend the day finding the humor in our awkwardness.

7. March 19th - National Quilting Day

Every third Saturday in March we celebrate quilts and anybody who makes them. Started in 1991 by the National Quilting Association, people are encouraged to participate no matter their skill level when it comes to quilting. In my case it'll probably looks like the strung together squares in the picture, but hey, still counts.

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.
