Tarot Deck For Crazy Cat People Like Myself

I'd been looking for a tarot deck I really connected to, and when I saw this one, I knew it was the one I had to get -- fantastic choice on my part, in my opinion.

Tarot Deck For Crazy Cat People Like Myself

When I saw this deck at Barnes and Noble, I had to get it; I'd been searching for the right deck that I really felt a connection with, and this immediately caught my eye. Along with the most cute and silly depictions of the cards, illustrated by Megan Lynn Kott, the deck comes with a little booklet, written by Julia Smillie, that helps explain how to interpret the individual cards as well as how to do tarot readings! Here are some of my favorite cards in the deck and the explanation given before getting more in depth into them, directly quoted from Ms. Smillie.

The complete Wands set

Ace: "Creativity is in the air--along with a rainbow of possibilities. This is a time of new beginnings, motivation, inspiration, creativity, vitality and energy."

Knight: "Both gallant and a tad annoying, the Knight of Wands always believes he knows best--and, with his energy and passion, he often does."

Page: "Like all the Pages in the tarot, the Page of Wands brings youthful energy but can also bring his youthful lack of judgement."

Queen: "The Queen of Wands exudes confidence. She is a Seer: strong, capable, vibrant, fearless, and ambitious. No matter how sleepy she may look."

King: "The King of Wands is everything a leader should be: strong, powerful, ambitious, and experienced."

The Magician, High Priestess, Hierophant and Hermit

The Magician: "The Magician straddles two worlds, one paw reaching skyward, two more on the ground, signifying the work of creativity."

The High Priestess: "Like an unexpected doorbell chime on a boring day, a visit from this card is both welcome and mysterious."

The Hierophant: "This card represents conformity, both good and bad."

The Hermit: "Indoor kitties needn't be any less worldly than wild ones."

The Empress and Emperor

The Empress: "This alpha female rules over an empire of peace and plenty."

The Emperor: "Worn with the right attitude, even a cone of shame can be a crown."

The Lovers, Hanged Man and Sun

The Lovers: "The Lovers bask in the sunshine of perfect harmony on a day undarkened by clouds."

The Hanged Man: "Although it looks like doom and danger, this card isn't the disaster it appears to be."

The Sun: "The sun provides a backdrop to the cat, on whom it rises and sets."

The Chariot, Justice, Star and Strength

The Chariot: "It may be called the company chair, but we all know who actually sits there."

Justice: "Just because the hand feeds you doesn't mean it doesn't deserve an occasional nip."

The Star: "Like Polaris, this card guides us to our personal true North."

Strength: "Everyone gets tired, but Strength always comes roaring back."

The Devil, Tower and Judgement

The Devil: "Like most dogs, the Devil is all bark and no bite."

The Tower: "."

Judgement: "Here comes the judge."

Ace of Swords and Page of Cups

Ace of Swords: "Aces herald new beginnings and, in this case, the spawning of new ideas, words, thoughts, and plans."

Page of Cups: "As usual, the Page brings in a youthful perspective, but he is still willing to take a good look at his reflection in order to understand his true feelings."

The 2 of Cups, 8 of Cups, 6 of Swords and 10 of Swords

2 of Cups: "What is better than the joining of two souls? This card is about unions and partnerships of all sorts."

8 of Cups: "Not everything in life is about material or physical possessions. Do some seeking, figure out what it is you want in life, and reach for something meaningful."

6 of Swords: "You're feeling a little low, but you'll soon be moving on from a rough situation. Or trying to, at least."

10 of Swords: "The worst seems to have happened. Or at least you've found yourself in a situation without a quick or easy remedy."

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

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.
