6 Holidays To Celebrate In July​ BESIDES Independence Day

Canada Day and Independence Day are cool and all... But what about July 27th: Take Your Houseplant For A Walk Day?


July is a pretty wonderful month. The weather is perfect to go explore the outdoors or go for a dip in the pool. You have holidays like Canada Day and the Fourth of July. People celebrate with pride and great food... But there are some other holiday gems that are in the background just waiting to be recognized.

1. July 10th: Teddy Bear Picnic Day

The name of the holiday makes it pretty obvious how you're supposed to celebrate. There isn't a lot of information on this official holiday's origins, but there's speculation that it has to do with a TV show from the 1950s called "Teddy Bears' Picnic".

2. July 13th: Embrace Your Geekness Day

You can thank the good folks at Wellcat Holidays for this one! While this is something you should be doing every day (in my humble opinion), July 13th is the day to celebrate it to the max! Dress up like a Stormtrooper, tell everyone to live long and prosper, or let the world know that traveling through space and time is your shtick. Fly your geek flag with pride and remind everyone that you solemnly swear that you are up to no good.

3. July 13th: National French Fry Day

Maybe "embracing geekness" isn't your thing, but you know what probably is? French fries. Who doesn't love french fries? According to holidaysinsights.com, this holiday came to fruition around the early 2000s. Sure, it's not something that's widely recognized, but any day that gives you a reason to eat something delicious is something worth celebrating.

4. July 20th: Moon Day

Moon Day is meant to honor the day that man first stepped on the moon in 1969. Make this a day that you party under the light of the silvery moon! Unless, of course, you're behind the theory that the U.S. faked the moon landing. In which case, give a round of applause for great cinematography.

5. July 24th: National Tequila Day

This one is like National French Fry Day–tt's not officially recognized, but it's well-known. Grab a couple of friends and feel less guilty about taking shots one after the other in the spirit of celebration.

6. July 31st: National Mutt Day

Dogs deserve love every day, but this day is one that mutts can shine. If you have a mutt for a pup or know somebody with one, make sure to give them some extra love today!

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.

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.
