What is there not to do in May?

April showers are bringing in those May flowers. May is here and it is one of the most exciting months out of the year for many reasons. There's so many important events going on in May and so many different things to do. Here's 11 reasons May is the best month out of the year.

1. School is done and summer has officially begun.

We are all waiting for the month of May because we all know school is out. We look forward to the month of May all year long. It's summer time!

2. We get to reunite with our friends from home.

It's been a long semester without seeing our lovely friends from home. The month of May is finally a time to reunite with our long lost best friends. Our college friends are great, but sometimes we just want to go back to our home roots.

3. It's time to relax.

The year has been hard on us, and now it's time to take a break for a little while. May is finally our chance to relax from all the stresses of school.

4. Start new jobs or internships.

We may have just gotten done with school, but that doesn't stop us from keeping our foot on the gas. May is the beginning of many jobs and internships where we can gain the experience for our future careers.

5. We get to spend time with our family.

Family time is the best time. May is a chance to finally come home from school and get in some much needed family time. We made our way through the long semester and now all we want is to spend some time with our favorite people.

6. More importantly, we get to come home to our pets.

It's no secret, we missed our pets while we were at school. Nothing is better than coming home to a wagging tail or a purring cat. We missed them the most.

7. Country concerts.

Country concert season is here. It all starts in May. The flannels, cowboy hats, and good times are all right around the corner!

8. Indy 500.

The 100th running of the Indy 500 is here, and it is an event you're not going to want to miss. May is full of special events and this might just be one of the biggest.

9. The Kentucky Derby.

There's nothing quite like dressing to the nines and having a great time while doing it. The month of May is home to this event, making May that much better.

10. Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is known for a lot of people headed out to the lake. It's a great time to get together with family and friends for the holiday before May is over!

11. Pool season is here.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
