If you listen to music all the time, you might be familiar with the struggle of it never being loud enough. Sometimes you just want to blast it and have a dance party with your friends, but your iPhone just doesn’t get that loud. Speakers are expensive or sometimes you forget to bring it with you somewhere but what is a good party without loud music you can scream along with, without anyone actually hearing your voice?

You can make your own speaker quickly and with objects you probably already own! These speakers use the same objects, for the most part, so if you don’t like one, you can easily try the other until you see which you like best. Feel free to decorate them how you’d like and make them your own!

These speakers are a major life hack, perfect to use when you just want a mini dance party in your room.

1. Solo Cup Speaker

All you have to do is play your music and put your phone in a cup! It will not be super loud but you will definitely hear a difference.

2. Empty Soda Can and Toilet Paper Roll

For this one, all you need are clean, empty soda cans and the cardboard from a toilet paper roll. All you need to do is cut a hole in the sides of two soda cans, big enough for the toilet paper roll to fit in. Cut a hole in the middle of the roll to stick your phone in. Lastly, secure the toilet paper roll between the two cans.

3. Cups and a Paper Towel Roll

This speaker is very similar to the one above. You cut a hole on the side of each cup, and secure an empty paper towel roll between them. Once you have the hole for your phone in the paper towel roll, get ready to sing and dance the day away.

4. Empty Pringles Can

An excuse to finish a can of Pringles? Fine, I’ll take it. Once you finish a can of Pringles, clean it out and stick about 14 inches of toilet paper inside. Tape a binder clip to each side so it stays up, cut a hole for your phone, and of course, play your music!

5. A Toilet Paper Roll

This one is super simple. All you have to do it cut a hole in a toilet paper roll to put your phone in and stick a tack on each side so it doesn’t tip over.

So invite your friends over, create your perfect playlist, and enjoy these speaker hacks!

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.
