Let's face it - life is rough.

After becoming an adult, we are faced with more freedom and with that freedom comes great responsibilities that can be overwhelming, to say the least. Between finances, time management, social lives, and relationships, life can get tricky, and we often lose control of ourselves. When I feel useless, here are five reminders that I tell myself, and that you should tell yourself too.

You're not alone and everyone is dealing with their own sh*t

No. Just no.

I know it feels like the world is singling you out, but it's totally not true. Everyone has their own issues, for better or for worse, and we all have to deal with the sh*t we're served. No seriously, ask your mom, grandma, neighbor, the random barista at SBux.

Every one is dealing with some issues.

Do what makes you happy

Life isn't meant to be in one big endless cycle.

Trust me, I get it. My life feels like it's an endless routine too. However, life isn't about just existing. Time is of the essence, so make sure to do stuff that you love!

Save money and go on a trip, go on a hike by yourself! Hell, do what makes you happy! I know that my happy place is binge-watching all of the Harry Potter movies in my Ravenclaw robe and endless popcorn.

With that being said, find balance

Do what makes you happy, but don't forget to take care of business.

Life is hard, and so putting in hard work will make you succeed. There's no escaping adversity, so you might as well make life your b*tch.

Live life regret-free

So you messed up? Great, move on.

There is no need to cry over spilled milk, especially when there's more in the carton. Again, everyone makes mistakes. In the wise words of Hannah Montana, "Nobody's perfect, I gotta work it again and again till I get it right".

Your current situation is not your forever

There will always be a storm before the blue skies. Your current situation is not your forever!

Life is so unexpected and spontaneous, who knows, you might end up marrying the next Prince of England, and become Queen! That's the best part about life: who knows where it will take you.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

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.
