​"Failure is a detour not a dead end street"​ - Zig Ziglar

Let me start off with my all time favorite quote. If I ever need motivation or I feel like giving up, I search this quote up first. It is the best quote to tell you that failure is never the end because so many people seem to think so when something small goes wrong.

"Try and fail but do not fail to try"- Jared Leto

The best thing about this quote is that it goes for everyone. We can try so hard and still not get something right because that is just a part of life, but if we completely stop trying, there is nowhere to go from there because we're putting all of our effort to waste and that's not fair to ourselves. Everyone and anyone can simply try to accomplish something.

"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams" - Oprah Winfrey

You can look at this quote in a couple of ways. You can think about what Oprah had in mind when she said this or you can just do what she says. I think we spend too much time thinking about what we could have done or pleasing others to please ourselves. We could either overthink every single step we take or we can set an open mind and take the risk to happiness. I don't know about you, but I prefer the second one.

"You have to keep breaking your heart until it opens"- Rumi

It seems like there is no possible way to ever look at this quote positively, but I beg to differ. This quote tells us that we might go through heartache but as we recover, we get stronger. Once we build up our full strength and something/someone hurts us, we can face it in a different way. Sometimes we feel like we have no value anymore but the truth is that we are just building false meanings for ourselves.

"Every day is a new day"

One of the shortest quotes, but the most meaningful. If everyday is a new day, then why should everyone always worry about what happens on that day? Every day is a new day and every day can be a better day.

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.

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.
