In Michigan, you can come across a lake every three miles. Anyone who lives in Michigan knows the best summer days are spent on a lake! We look forward to our next lake day as soon as our current one ends. But, the last lake day of the year is the most bittersweet day. If you can relate to any of these things then you are definitely a " lake person:"

1. The day your dock goes in the water is the best day of the year!

But putting in your dock is always a pain. But well worth it. We'll also pretend we never have to take it back out.

2. You learned how to drive a boat before you learned to drive a car.


Pulling the boat back into the dock can be a very stressful moment.

3. You have way too many bathing suits...

You probably have too many to count and you still keep buying more. Whoops.

4. You have very little patience for people who can't back their boat down the launch right...

You can witness many fights during this process (especially between husbands and wives).

5. Everyone always wants to come over to your house.

Lake volleyball is a must, and can get pretty intense!

6. You pretty much always have a sunburn.

But that's not going to stop you from going out and enjoying the day.

7. You give a friendly wave to every boat you drive by.

And you usually know most the people you're waving to.

8. You're pretty much a professional tuber

No one's going to be knocking you off.

9. You have a designated boat music playlist.


There always ends up being a boat dance party.

10. No day can beat a lake day!

Friends, sunshine, and booze nothing can beat it!



The only way to spend a day in the summer is on the lake creating memories. I can't wait to enjoy this season with tan lines and lake hair.

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.

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.
