My Biggest Advice Is To Travel, Travel, Travel

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

I think everyone in this world should have that wild yet enchanting disease called wanderlust.

Traveling is absolutely magical, if there was one piece of advice I could give people, it would be to travel, travel anywhere and everywhere...every chance you get.

Hang a map on the wall, throw pins at it.

And visit the place it lands on.

It's something where even if you did it on a whim, you have nothing to lose-- you can only gain the beautiful opportunities it grants you.

I am only stating this from experience and here are some things that I have learned and gained from going to beautiful and culturally-filled places.

Say goodbye to your comfort zone - Traveling will push you through situations that you are definitely not familiar with back home. But hey, taking crazy risks will only help you discover your true self- your strengths, weaknesses, desires, inspirations.

You gain important insights- Traveling not only allows you to experience different perspectives, it also allows you to learn about them too. A culture shock is definitely something everyone should experience, it can only really positively affect you as a person- inspiring you to give back and also allow you to be thankful and stay thankful for everything you have. Just think about the people you will meet, people that are completely different form everything you know and consider normal back home- people that see life differently- people that will teach you lesson and tell you stories you will never ever forget.

Traveling can do so much for you. You can learn, live, and breathe the same air completely different people are breathing. It's an experience where time slows down- you can take everything you see and the places you visit in...and please keep those memories very close to your heart. It pushes you to limits you have never discovered and that can only do good for you- I mean, it is always good to stay on the safe and easy route but how will you ever know what really sets you off the edge if you've never tried it?

And one last and crucial piece of advice I will leave you all with is that we are not guaranteed to get older. I am sure you have all heard everyone talking about how they'd rather wait until they were "a responsible adult" to escape their responsibilities at home, but honestly, those are the people who are already conforming to society's standards.

So just think about this- if you were not guaranteed to reach your 40's or even 60's- would you have any regrets?

Because I know for a fact that I would not.

Buy your experiences and travel, travel, travel.

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.
