Homesick Candles

Candles that smell like states, how cool can candles get?

There is a candle out there, multiple candles actually, that smell like your home state. Now how is that possible? Homesick Candles makes candles designed with specific properties from each state. Let's look at some of these candles and see if they really are like the states mentioned. I'll just be touching into a few of states I have visited and go off of my experience and some of the stereotypes. Don't worry, my homestate has plenty of them, too.

Let's start with Maine ("Hey isn't that part of Canada?") Actually, no. Maine isn't part of Canada, you might want to take a geography course. Or pay more attention to the news where they show all of the states. Seriously, this has been asked many times. Not kidding.

Anyway, Maine's candle is: Maine blueberries, pine, and autumn hayrides. Maine is the Pine Tree State, we have lots of blueberries, and fall is pretty spectacular. I'd say this one is dead on. Now as long as the candle actually smells as good as I'm hoping it is....

Taking a look at New Hampshire next. I have been to New Hampshire more than any other state (besides Maine, duh). New Hampshire's candle is apple cider and autumn hayrides. I think we have a New England theme starting here...

So now I just had to go see what Vermont was. Oh maple syrup (no surprise there, maple syrup capital of the US) and fall foliage and fresh baked apple pie. Three states of New England have a fall theme.

Connecticut: vanilla, nutmeg, apple orchard

Rhode Island: stormy seas, baked apples, autumn hayrides.

Definitely a pattern.

Massachusetts: apple cider donuts and Dunkin coffee. Going to be really honest here: I'm pretty sure everyone I know from Mass is addicted to coffee. There's probably a few I know that aren't, but as for right now, everyone is. Insert stereotyping here. I did warn you.

I jumped out to Montana for a little bit of open plains, winter air, spruce, and denim. Sounds about what I saw when I was out there. Really beautiful country though, go visit!

For the last one, I'm looking at Florida. Orange, driftwood, and sea mist. The driftwood was a little questionable to me, but then again I didn't go right to the beach when I was there.

As for my own knowledge (and stereotypes. I wouldn't be surprised if they used some while making these candles anyhow) these candles are dead on to the scents of states. Now I'm going to go order myself a Maine one even though I never leave the state, just to see what it actually smells like.

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.
