How To Thrive With All This Time You Have Now

There is so much to do before you can say you're bored.

How To Thrive With All This Time You Have Now

It seems we're all in the same boat of figuring out what to do what all of this time we now have. Classes have been moved to online; we can't go and hang out with our friends for awhile and this whole "social distancing" movement has created much more anxiety for people. So, how do we get through this?

First, acknowledge that it's only temporary. This isn't forever and that in itself should give you hope. It should boost some motivation to do the things you've wanted to get done, but haven't had the time to. We'll all return to our jobs and daily grinds shortly, but this is the time to figure out a game plan and start those projects at home. This is exciting stuff! For me, I've already finished two books that I've had for years and haven't gotten around to reading. I've taken up crafting and have started to learn break dancing. I've also been learning how to play the banjo. Honestly, my days are pretty jam packed with the things I've put on the back burner because they weren't priorities. Well, now's my time to do it, and yours to! What have you been wanting to do but could never find time? What podcast did you put off for so long? What home fitness class have you been wanting to try?

We're never going to have as much time as we do now! Instead of wishing it away, find a way to make it productive. Time to get creative. Work outside, watch a show guilt free, learn a new skill. There is an infinite amount of things you can learn or do. Try one today. And remember to take it one day at a time. We are all in this together and now, more than ever, is the time to connect with people on a deeper level. Who says you can't do that through a screen? We got this!

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.

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.
