9 Things I’ve Learned, For Better Or For Worse, Since Moving To Music City
Treasure Paiva

I'm a wonderer by nature. It's something that's in my DNA. So when I decided I wanted to move away from my small town, I did it. I left everything I had ever known to move to Music City. I've been here a little over a year now, and this is what I've learned.

1. You’ll Never Be Bored

There's always something to do here. Between concerts, festivals or daily activities at national parks, you'll never have a dull day here.

2. Traffic is the Worst


And it’s really bad when you’re five minutes from home and need to use the bathroom. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the horrible traffic.

3. Get Full Coverage


Nashville is growing so fast. With all of the traffic and construction, it’s best to have full coverage insurance on your car. Just trust me on this one.

4. Go to Broadway


When you move, or even visit, come see Broadway. Have fun, sing, dance and then never go back. Broadway is filled with tourists, and while it might seem fun, it's too much to deal with.

5. Food, Food and more Food


Not only is Nashville music city, but the food here is amazing. Different types of food surround the city. You’re bound to find your favorite place somewhere in the city.

6. Sports

Sports happen to be a big thing in Nashville. Any time a team wins, or loses, you can feel it in the air whenever you're out and about.

7. Go to Lovers' Circle

The view is immaculate! Especially with sunsets. You can hear the marching bands from the nearby colleges, and it's just so peaceful.

8. More Than Just Country Music.


This is music city... where all types of bands play. Walking down Broadway you'll hear cover bands play all kinds of music. Between country, rock, soul and pop, the sounds are endless. And, if you go into bars with multiple levels, each level is a different genre of music. I promise you'll find something to your liking.

9. Big Town with a Small Town Feel


Even though Nashville is a bigger town, I swear everyone knows everyone. From one end of the town to the other, all locals know each other. It made my move from small town USA so much easier.

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.
