Having A Negative, Sh*tty Attitude Constantly Will Only Attract That Same Energy

So, be kind to yourself in this harsh world and try to remain positive as best you can!

Having A Negative, Sh*tty Attitude Constantly Will Only Attract That Same Energy

When I first came to college, my instinct was to be negative. It was SO easy to find the possible down-sides to every situation. It's easier to be negative than positive. I still have the tendency to be negative when situations get difficult, but being positive is much more rewarding.

I believe in the Law of Attraction, which states that you attract whatever energy you put forth into the Universe. I noticed that when my attitude changed and I tried to remain positive despite the situation, the consequences would usually be more positive. But even if the results weren't positive, my positive attitude would help me find the silver lining. Or I would just start all over the next day and wake up with a smile on my face, optimistic about the day.

Ever since my ex-boyfriend broke up with me and moved away in September, I have been really working on myself and my attitude. Through my first relationship, I discovered a lot of traits that I wanted to improve. My negativity was one of them. Being positive is REALLY hard sometimes and I can't maintain a positive attitude all the time. That's impossible and not a healthy lifestyle approach. But instead of focusing on the negatives, recognize that they exist and then search for the positives too.

If you have something about your life that you just HATE and want desperately to change, maintain a positive attitude and do everything within your power to change the situation. We are in control of a lot more than we realize! Try working on it whenever you notice yourself in a rut of negativity. Recognize the negative and then try to find the positives. Sometimes, the only positive in a situation is that you learned a lesson. But that's okay! Life is about learning and making mistakes!

So, be kind to yourself in this harsh world and try to remain positive as best you can!

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.
