Here's To The Summer Nights

Why the summer of 2016 will be the best one yet.

Here's To The Summer Nights
Marais Davis

With all of this unpredictable weather lately, I thought a prelude to this summer was a definite must. Not only are we back from school, but we are ready to reclaim the town as our own. So hang on to your shades, summer of 2016 is about to be a good one.

This summer is going to be full of sitting around a fire in a hoodie and jeans. It's going to be about reminiscing with old friends, and making new ones. Here's to working all day, then still finding the energy to tear up the town with your friends. Summer is about driving with your windows down blasting your summer playlist. It's about getting those awful tan lines on your feet from wearing flip flops 24/7. Even if you aren't a big country music fan, once June hits, you will be. There's something different about listening to country music in the summer versus any other season. The songs become relatable and idealistic. (I mean who wouldn't want to meet a hot cowboy and have a summer fling with them?)

This summer will be full of doing things with people you love. Go on ice cream dates with your significant other. If you're like me and single a majority of the time, there is no shame in going with your friends. It's all about the experience. Go watch fireworks, plan a picnic. Go boating, have a water balloon fight. Invest in a hammock and a good book. The little things like this are the epitome of the season itself.

This summer should be about living in the moment. Screw the diet, get that funnel cake at the fair. Go see your favorite band play. You'll remember an awesome concert with your friends versus a day at work. Go meet your friends even if you're tired, it will be worth it.

The summer of 2016 is also going to be full of adventure. It's going to be full of mini-road trips with friends, where so many memories will be made. Here's to trying new things this summer. Try cliff jumping, just so you can say you did it. Ride on the back of a motorcycle (with a helmet, of course), just for the thrill of it. Don't let your fears get in the way of living. Let's start crossing things off our bucket lists.

The summer of 2016 is going to be full of nights we are going to remember long after this year. It's going to be full of all the great things that make up summer, plus more. Even after all of the parting ways and goodbyes, let's be able to look back on this summer and laugh at all the crazy things we did. The summer of 2016 is going to be sunny, adventurous, memorable, and I, for one, cannot wait. Here's to putting the summer of 2016 in the books.

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.
