6 Reasons Hammocking Can Help You Have A Better Day
Emma Weisbrod

The first month of my freshman year of college I learned about Eno hammocks and honestly I haven't regret my decision dropping a few bucks on these things. There is a really cool vibe that comes along with these sacks that can be hung from trees. In the last two years of owning this hammock I have spent more time outside than ever in my teenage years and just feeling great with the fun and relaxation that comes with these Eno's.

You can hang alone, you can hang with friends, the opportunities are literally endless. But this certain activity has so much power to instantly make your day better.

Here are 6 extremely simple and exciting reasons why every cool person should own an hammock like this...

1. Location

All you have to do is find two trees and set up shop, ready to lounge and relax.

2. Strength in numbers

You can stack as many as you want (safely). It's a really fun process to climb up a hammock ladder.

3. Scenery

Views, always do it for the views (Yay for nature).

4. Good company

They can hold multiple of your favorite people (dogs included).

5. Accessibility

You can bring them anywhere and everywhere. You can even bring it to a golf course with a view of the Smoky Mountains if you really want to.

6. Vibes

Overall hammocks just radiate great vibes and feelings that are easy to get when you are hanging from trees with your buddies. Eno'ing inevitability makes you a happier person.

With spring coming up (hopefully Ohio gets its act together and brings me some warm weather), I strongly encourage you to go out and buy and Eno hammock, or something like it. It truly is a nice taste of summer when you can just lounge and relax in this hammock. You can listen to music, you can do homework, you can even nap; surprisingly you can do so many things in this random of an item. Seriously, do yourself a favor grab a hammock, grab some friends, grab a snack and find some trees, you won't regret it! It's almost impossible to be in a bad mood when you're Eno'ing.

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.

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.
