Smartphones nowadays have the ability to track what apps you use the most and how much time you spend daily on each. While this can be kind of useful, it's actually more frightening. Nothing is worse than wasting your time on social media or a game than being confronted about it or judged by your smart device. I took a look at this feature in my settings to see what I spent most of my time on, and I was honestly surprised. Some apps I thought I used a lot weren't really shown until the bottom of the list, and others make it seem like I am on them constantly. I made a list of the top 10 most used apps based on my phone's data and my own personal preference below, though it's not necessarily in this order exactly! (Surprise, surprise, the Starbucks app is a close #11!)


Of course, texting is a main form of communication these days, so this is a no brainer. Catch me texting my roommates, my boyfriend, my friends, or my mom at any given moment.


This is one of my favorite apps to scroll through when I have nothing better to do. This honestly isn't that surprising that it is so high up on the list because I really am on it a lot! Twitter is where I get most of my news, memes, and TV spoilers.


I love to show off my friends and treasured moments captured in photos, but even more I like to admire other people's posts. My favorite thing is to watch DIY or progress videos on the Discover page! I can get lost on there for hours.


Snapchat is another easy way to stay in contact with my loved ones and close friends!


While not many people are very attentive to their email, I check mine every day, usually several times. Don't want to miss anything important!


In the last few years I have really gotten into watching vlogs and other content that people post. Some of my favorites are David Dobrik, Shane Dawson, and LaurDIY. I also use YouTube to listen to music, audiobooks, or watch celebrity interviews, like this one.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

This is literally Pokémon Go but for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Need I say more?


Usually I am listening to music no matter what else I am actually focusing on. In the car, at work, at the gym, even writing this article.

Photos / Camera

While they are separate apps, I'll combine them into one for this purpose: I take a lot of photos, and I like to look back through them!


This app is a lifesaver. I keep important notes like passwords ( yikes, but it's password protected😉), grocery lists, and other random information in my phone so that I always have it with me. One specific note has random stuff dating back to when I first got an iPhone in!

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.
