National Day of ______

National Day of ______

It is hard to miss the Breast Cancer Awareness Months or Pride month. Those two equally worthy causes are widely reported in the news but did you know there is a National Day, week and month of something almost every day?

You can find a complete month by month list of all the National days, weeks and months on the website.

The month of June ended with an important awareness day for those who are suffering from PTSD. Not every day is a huge deal like PTSD some are just fun like Sunglass day or talk like a Pirate Day.

In the month of July, we are all familiar with Independence Day on July 4th but then the nation gets to celebrate National Macaroni day on July 7th and then the wonder that is a Slurpee from 7-11 on 7-11. I know our house will celebrate both of these days.

You don’t have to go all out on these Days but knowing the day is celebrating something gives you a reason to have a little fun with dinner plans or social media posts. Some days can raise awareness of important issues and knowing that it is the day for that issue can open up a discussion.

To help with summer parties I am going to help you out with your celebration of National Penuche Day on July 22 below I will share with you a video I made of my Mother making her famous Penuche.

Peanut butter penuche is a family favorite. If you like sugar and peanut butter than it will quickly become a family favorite in your house too.

Check out the National Day Calendar listed above. You can use the days to make memories with loved ones. Sometimes the best memories come from the simplest things. The world is a serious place and the whole adulating thing can get tiring very fast. Some days you just need an excuse to have a little fun. Days like Saturday, July 22nd knowing it is the national junk food can make a normal boring weekend into something fun.

What national days, weeks or Months do you want to celebrate most? Check out the list and leave me your favorite day in the comments.

Happy Summertime

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.
