Chances are, you've run out of ideas of what to do.

5 Steps To Making The Ultimate Summer Bucket List For Your HOTTEST Summer Yet

Now that we are well into summer, chances are that you've run out of ideas of what to do. Follow these steps to refill your bucket list in order to make sure you get the maximum out of your time.

Step One:

Compile a list of your favorite activities. Whatever you enjoy doing, whatever that makes you happy. This list should have the things that you would do if you had nothing else to do and no one watching.

Make sure this is what you enjoy — not what others will tell you to enjoy.

Step Two:

Make a list of all the things that you wish you could do. These are the things that you've been making excuses for.

These are the things you can't get out of your head, and keep begging you to try them out.

This can be anything from a hobby that you've always wanted to try out, so self-improvement, just make sure that the things on this list are a reflection of your potential.

Step Three:

If you feel like there aren't enough items on your list, get on social media. There are hundreds of short and sweet challenges being introduced daily. Chances are, at least a couple of these will be appealing to you, so make sure you check them out!

Step Four:

Starting thinking outside of your comfort zone, and write down what comes up. This can be anything that you wouldn't do normally, but you know you want to learn one point or the other.

Now is the time to push yourself and try something new and daring in order to come out better for it in the future.

Step Five:

Remove things that are not physically possible from all lists. I'm not talking about the things you don't want to try to finish. I'm talking about things that are unrealistic expectations that do nothing but make you feel worse about yourself when you inevitably fail at them.

Don't aim to sprint a marathon if you just learned how to run. Make sure the goals are attainable.

This also goes for other possible restrictions such as money or ability.

Now that you've made your bucket lists, try to work one thing from each list each day on a rotating schedule and make sure you work on your comfort-boundary-pushing task every day. I do sincerely hope you come out better at the end of this summer!

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.
