How To Spend Your Spring Break In California

I don't know about you, but finals are the death of me! I can just begin to feel my back begin to ache as the image of sitting in the university library pops into my head. But let's get sicktracked for a minute. Spring break is coming up. And if you are from California or you are visiting California, there are a ton of fun things to do here for a cheap price. Here are some ideas starting from northern California and ending in southern California.

1. Paddle Boat in Lake Tahoe.

Go down to Tahoe with a few close friends or family and rent a cabin for a few days.

2. Make your way to San Francisco.

San Francisco has everything: the shopping, the variety of cultural foods and the beach (even though the water is really cold). And if you have never been to San Francisco, this might be a perfect opportunity to go.

3. Go to Santa Cruz to surf.

Santa Cruz has been known to compete with San Diego as the number one surf city. The waves are amazing! If you are a surfer, this is your place to go.

4. Volunteer in the Homeless Garden in Santa Cruz.

The Santa Cruz Homeless Garden is open every day. If you are one that likes to give back to the community and you would enjoy a relaxing day of gardening, this might be something you would enjoy to do.

5. Visit Big Sur.

Big Sur is supposed to be gorgeous! I've always wanted to go so swing by before California has another drought.

6. Pull out your tent at Lake Bonavista.

Lake Bonavista is a perfect place to escape your technology for a few days and expose yourself to a little bit of nature.

7. Go to the Getty in Los Angeles.

If you are one that fancies a little art, I have to say that the Getty is one of the most well-known art museums in California and by far the largest. Check it out if you are in Los Angeles.

8. Go to City Walk.

City Walk has a ton of fun stores to spend time in Los Angeles, and if you are one that likes to be around crowds (like myself), this is definitely a place to go!

9. Go to Beverley Hills and check out Nat n' Al.

If you want some delicious food and in a large quantity and good quality while you are checking out one of the richest communities in California, go to Nat n' Al. You might even run into a famous actor getting their morning grub.

10. Walk around the harbor in Newport.

The harbor is beautiful! You can even pretend you live in one of the expensive homes off the harbor or go on a boat tour of the history of the houses. Just bring your coffee, your big sunglasses and your binoculars and you are all set.

11. Make a trip to San Diego and hike Torrey Pines.

Torrey Pines is a great 3 mile hiking trail roundtrip. It takes you up the mountain that overlooks the beach and then straight down the mountain and to the beach. If you like to hike, this is a perfect opportunity for you.

12. Or make your way to San Diego and Hike Potato Chip.

Yes, this place literally looks like a single potato chip. If you are inclined to do this hike, start early in the morning because it is six miles up hill and can get really hot.

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.
