I've got the blues for you

How To Get Over The Summer Blues

It's the middle of August and you still have some time before school starts and it feels like you have nothing to do. DO NOT FEAR! Here's a list you might want to check off.

1. Plan a day trip either by yourself or with friends. It can be to eat out, do some shopping or if you're on a budget go to a park just to enjoy the view.

2. You still have time to binge watch the last few episodes or the season of the show you have been watching through the summer.

3. Go outside and get some fresh air. Before you know it you'll be inside in classes all day.

4. Drive around or if you don't have your permit or drivers license. Plan to save and make an appointment to be able to drive before the year is over.

5. You already see signs of fall coming with stores displaying pumpkins and autumn leaves. Think what you are going to be doing for those holidays that will be here before you know it.

6. Do plan to hang out with friends you won't be able to see again until 2 months. You will be glad you did so and won't miss them as much.

7. Finish that summer playlist and always look for new music. Appreciate the big and small artist and their works.

8. Even though your mind loathes the idea of school. You're ready for the year to start. All the new supplies for classes. To see old friends and make new friends.

So don't wait until school actually starts! Go and finish this list before the summer ends!

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.
