Going to a music festival doesn't make you cool so stop posting pictures of yourself in front of the main stage, and start going for the right reasons.

Getting There

Grab some friends and pile into your car and make a road trip out of it. The journey to a festival is always a ride of excitement, stopping new and different places along the way adds to the trip.

The Experience 

There's nothing like waking up as the sun rises in a hot mucky tent after a night of dancing until just a few hours before and living on PB&J sandwiches without showering for a few days is all apart of the experience, embrace it!

The Activities 

Most festivals offer different workshops and classes. These range from sunrise yoga to learning how to raise chickens. Try something new! You never know what you might learn.

The people 

Immediately after stepping foot onto the festival grounds you are opened up to a whole new world of people. Go with an open and accepting mind because most likely you will meet a lifelong friend who you never knew you needed so badly.

The music 

What's better than seeing one of your favorite artists? Seeing five of your favorite artists in one weekend! Go see your favorite band, DJ, rapper, or singer and leave time to explore new genres!

Most importantly, because you want to, for you

Go to festivals because you love the music and you love to have fun rain or shine. Festivals allow you to embrace your true self (or anyone you want to be) and escape reality for the weekend. Don't go for drugs or to see how out of control you can be, or for your followers to think you're something, but go to experience something beautiful.

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.
