Why You Should Go To Bonnaroo

Don't let the no showers scare you, it's the happiest place on Earth.

Why You Should Go To Bonnaroo

Festival season is here. Lineups have been announced, tickets have begun to sell out, and the countdowns have started. And although all music festivals are a guaranteed good time, there's one that stands out from all the rest: Bonnaroo.

Bonnaroo is located in Manchester, TN, and is widely thought to be a place for dirty hippies to get high for four days straight. Which let's be real, it kind of is. But, it's so much more than that.

Everything at Bonnaroo has a sense of magic, from the music, the experience, the people, and the food. And yes, festival food can be magical. Ever eaten an Amish doughnut or a piece of Spicy Pie pizza? No? Get back to me once you do.

First and foremost, Bonnaroo is a music festival, and man, is the music great. 'Roo brings oldies, rappers, rock stars, and EDM artists together for an absolutely insane lineup every year. The effect? A group of people brought together, not by a love of one singular type of music, but an overall love.

'Roo is a great place for music, but like I said, it's so much more. It's got everything from waterslides to yoga classes, and even a 5k if you're crazy and want to run in the blazing Tennessee heat. Basically, Bonnaroo makes it to where there's always something to do. And yes, falling asleep under a tree counts as "something" too.

Once you go to Bonnaroo, you'll carry the ideas and mindset associated with the Farm with you wherever you may go. High-five Fridays are real, and good vibes really are found everywhere on the Farm. I still haven't figured out that if it's because of the place, or the people, that makes it such a great community. Honestly, I think it's both. You never meet a stranger at 'Roo, and everyone there is there for the same reason: they want to experience their brain on music. Trust me, it makes for an awesome time.

So, if you haven't been, go. If you have been, go back. I'm counting the days until I'm no longer a broke college student and can go back, because Bonnaroo really is the happiest place on Earth.

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.
