Advice is a very tricky thing. It can be both positive or negative, good or bad, helpful or useless. But getting advice means that person cares for you enough to try and make your life easier. Everyone receives and gives advice often, but they are two very different things. Sometimes giving advice seems to be much easier than receiving it.

So, here are 11 pieces of advice you may hear that you should absolutely apply.

1. Do what feels right

Listen to your gut. Don't let outside distractions change what you think is right or what is best for you.

2. Always take time for yourself

Taking time for yourself is crucial to knowing who you really are. It gives your mind and body a time to restore and relax.

3. Life will never be fair

Once you have fully accepted this, it will truly change your view. Life will never, ever be fair and others will always have something you don't and there is nothing wrong with that.

4. Never assume the worst

Never, never, never! You never know what the future will hold, and going into something with a negative attitude will only make it worse. It could be the best thing that has happened to you.

5. Be patient

Patience is key to just about everything in life. Patience will set you apart from others in this world.

6. Trust your gut

If your gut is telling you this is a bad idea, it probably is. Intuition is almost always correct.

7. Love yourself before loving others

If you don't truly love yourself, it is impossible to fully give your love to someone else. Self-love is the key to success.

8. Never give up on what you want

Just because your dream seems far off, doesn't mean that they are impossible to reach. Work hard for what you want to achieve.

9. Pay attention

Always be aware, the more you pay attention in life the more you will learn.

10. Don't worry about what other people think

This is really the downfall of human society. Everyone is so focused on others opinions that they loose who they truly are. Be yourself because there is nobody out there just like you.

11. Always believe in yourself

What you see is what you get. When you truly believe in yourself confidence will show, and confidence will get you anywhere you want to be.

Advice can come in a variety of ways, but if you've ever heard these pieces of advice, take them.

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.
