Natural Motivation: Dream Vacation Destinations

Have you ever taken a moment to think about how incredible our world really is? Trying to wrap my brain around both the natural and manmade wonders of this place that we call home can be a bit daunting. As someone who loves to travel (but who has unfortunately not yet traveled outside of the country), I often spend my time planning dream vacations. There is nothing wrong with dreaming a little, and having these dreams and goals in mind can be an effective motivation tool. If working hard now means you could take that trip to Europe you've been waiting your whole life for, why not do it? So, I encourage you to dream. Find that place (or those places) that you would give anything to see, let those thoughts carry you forward, and see where it takes you. Here are a few of my many dream vacation destinations:

1. South Africa

2. Greece

3. Ireland

4. Bora Bora

5. Germany

6. France

7. Machu Picchu

8. Italy

9. Egypt

10. Costa Rica

11. Morocco

This list could really go on forever. The fact of the matter is that there are just so many beautiful places in this world. If we set aside the negativity that often plagues our perception of certain places, then we can really start to appreciate their beauty. No, I will probably not travel to all of the countries and destinations which I have included in this list. Circumstances beyond my/our control such as safety could hinder plans to travel to any one of these places. That, however, is not the point. The point is to make a list, to dream a little. These dreams do not have to be as big as riding a camel in Egypt, either. While I did not include any in this list, there are plenty of places that I still want to see in the United States. It's OK to start small. Take weekend trips and get a taste of the excitement. As time goes on your dreams will get bigger and bigger and your motivation will grow accordingly. Let this drive you. Take what our beautiful world naturally gives you and use that to better yourself, and have fun while you are at it. You never know -- someday we might meet as we ride camels through Egypt. Just dream a little.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
