Get Lit with Amazon's First Reads Program

Do you want a free book? Scratch that, do you want a free book every month?

Okay, scratch that too, because it gets even better: do you want a free book every month that you can download directly onto your phone without fear of viruses or sketchy ads? Is that a resounding "Yes!" that I hear? Well, I've got some great news for you, because Amazon Prime's First Reads program offers just that: free books each month, able to be downloaded directly to your Kindle or the Kindle app on your laptop/phone/tech piece of choice.

The whole process is super easy: just check out Amazon Prime's First Reads page, which will list the Editor's Picks options to download. These books are the best of the best of the new literature scene, curated just for Prime readers and varying in genre.

When I chose my book for this month (Match Making for Beginners by Maddie Dawson, in case you were wondering), I was able to make my choice out of a pool of options that included nonfiction, suspense, thriller, and literary fiction novels that all looked incredibly promising. After making my choice, I was able to download the book right away and started reading just seconds later!

"Now wait!", you may say, "I don't have an Amazon Prime account!" If you aren't signed for Amazon Prime, then here's how to cheat the system: go sign up for a student account, which will give you free Amazon Prime access for six months! Now go get reading!

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.

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.
