What We Can ALL Do, To Help Prevent The Spread Of Corona

If you are going out, resuming life as normal, vacationing and hanging out consistently with friends, you are not doing your part to contain the virus, and you might be putting others around you at a risk to get the virus.

What We Can ALL Do, To Help Prevent The Spread Of Corona

Everyone knows about Corona, but not everyone is taking it as seriously as they should. This is not a bashing-my-generation session, but at the same time it is.

Yes, if you are a healthy twenty-year-old, Corona will probably not affect you much. Yes, you might get a headache and some flu-like symptoms, but you will most likely live. Yes, if you are a healthy twenty-year-old, you might not even show any symptoms. But, disclaimed: THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU CANNOT PASS THE ILLNESS TO OTHERS IN A HIGH-RISK GROUP. If you are going out, resuming life as normal, vacationing and hanging out consistently with friends, you are not doing your part to contain the virus, and you might be putting others around you at a risk to get the virus.

Do not forget that we are in a pandemic right now!! We might not want to see it as such, but we are, and we can help solve the problem by self-quaratining and doing our part to help with the virus control, even if it looks like we are 100% healthy. It is ALWAYS better to be safe than sorry, and when we are talking about a virus that is quite literally KILLING people all around the world, it is selfish to not be safe.

Yes, I know you miss your friends. Yes, I know that you want to go on that trip to Mexico that you spent so much money on...but we are in a CRISIS. Even Trump, who doesn't even believe in global warming, has said so! If you are going out and resuming your regular life, not washing your hands extra and going to crowded spaces instead of social distancing, you are a part of the problem. Period.

With that being said, I hope that everyone is staying safe during this incredibly scary time in our history. Wash your hands, avoid touching your face, make sure you are getting rest, stay healthy and as happy as we can. Make sure to preserve your mental health during this time by connecting with friends and family through technological outlets, and picking up on hobbies that life has forced you to put down.

And with that being said,

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

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.

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.
