To The High School Seniors During Their Last Month Ever, Don't Be Afraid To Cry

To High School Seniors,

Graduation is right around the corner. You probably thought this day would never come. Maybe you have been dreading it or maybe you have been over the moon excited about it. Either way, it is coming.

I'm sure your senioritis has fully kicked in by now, but finish off the school year strong. Kill those AP Exams and finals. But, also enjoy your last month of high school to the fullest extent. Don't stress about homework and grades. Hang out with your friends. In just a few months, you will be leaving them and will have wished you would have spent more time with them when you could have.

Prom is probably right around the corner. Be ready to share one last dance with your entire class. There is nothing like singing and dancing with your best friends one last time. And make sure to take a lot of pictures- you will want them to look back on:)

Make sure to thank your teachers. They have pushed you to be where you are today and all of the knowledge you have gained over the past four years is because of them. They fostered your learning and taught you how to express yourself at the same time. You may not know it at the time, but you are really going to miss them in college.

Push through those graduation practices. Yes, they may seem pointless and annoying, but in the end it'll be worth it.

Don't be afraid to cry. Crying isn't a bad thing.

Have fun. Make sure to participate in senior prank day. It'll be one of your favorite memories of senior year and will give you a few last laughs in your high school hallways. Attend school events with your friends and take in your surroundings for your last month.

Lastly, spend time with your family- they are going through a tough time too knowing that you will be leaving home in a few months. Graduation will be hard but exciting for your parents, so make sure to give them a hug and tell them "Thank you" for allowing you to attend an amazing high school for four years.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
