Perhaps you've experienced checking the balance of your bank account thinking you had close to $200 left, only to be greeted by a slap in the face when you realize you in fact have $3.27 in your account and still have to go grocery shopping for the week.

Maybe you get lucky and your parents give you a little bit of money to go grocery shopping and you start making a list and instantly become annoyed when you have no choice but to put these items on the list:

1. Shampoo and conditioner

Might as well take out a loan to make this investment

2. Toothpaste/deodorant

Okay definitely an essential but $5, is that really necessary?

3. Feminine products

It's almost as though they are punishing for the fact that we are girls.

4. Face wash/makeup remover wipes

Makeup remover wipes are a college girls best friend, until you have to buy a new pack.

5. Razors

These can be as much as $25!!! Why!!!

6. Coffee

Can't live without it but UGH, K-cups are ridiculously priced.

7. Peanut Butter

If you're anything like me, this is a go-to essential but holy cow is it expensive, especially if you go through a jar every two weeks.

8. School Supplies

Pens, notebooks, highlighters, etc... BIC pens and reusing last years notebooks it is.

9. Cooking/baking supplies

I love baking and cooking but the second I realize my apartment/dorm doesn't come with the essentials (flour, oils, spices, etc.) my house at home does is when I grow frustrated and give up on the idea.

10. Healthy foods

Okay I love eating healthy and try so hard to do it consistently but they make it really hard when fruit/vegetables/healthy meats are insanely priced!

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.
