How To Celebrate Pi Day Like A Champ

Math nerds, unite!

How To Celebrate Pi Day Like A Champ

Amidst the mugs of green beer and sparkly shamrocks, we often forget this super cool “holiday” that falls within the same week as St. Patty’s Day. March 14 is not only a celebration of some irrational number; it is also Albert Einstein’s (and my own) birthday, which is an obvious coincidence. Also, shout out to my middle school math teacher who first enlightened me about the celebration of Pi Day.

Eating extra dessert is totally acceptable.

Pie is seriously the best dessert because you can put anything into a pie and it will still taste good. The possibilities are endless! Apple, peach, pudding, ice cream, blueberry -- the list goes on and on! Anything you want, make it happen.

Pizza also counts.

The fun doesn’t just stop at dessert! Think about all the amazing variations of a pizza pie you can enjoy!

Unleash your inner math nerd.

It’s that one special day a year when it’s completely socially acceptable to recite all those numbers you memorized way back in eighth grade and are oddly still stored in your long-term memory. At that point in your life, you would’ve gone to any length to win that golden homework pass. (Not to mention, the incredible bragging rights).

Don't try to do actual math.

Unless you’re a math major, or math teacher who actually knows what’s going on, it is so not worth it. Trying to refresh your brain with some long forgotten algebra equations will only frustrate you and ruin this glorious day -- just stick with the real “pie.”

Visit the Pi Day capital.

To my fellow New Jerseyans, get your Pi Day groove on in Princeton, NJ. Since Albert Einstein lived in Princeton for over 20 years, and his birthday is on 3/14, this Ivy League town takes it quite seriously. Enjoy an Einstein look-a-like contest, digit recitation contest, and a tour of the Princeton University campus. All that fun for only $3.14 (of course)!

Have a great March 14!

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.
