50 New Years Resolutions College Kids Have

Every year comes and goes with new goals and resolutions as we ring in the new year. It's a new chapter, a clean slate, and a fresh start. Most people want to eat healthier or achieve a goal at work. College kids have some very unique resolutions. We're just trying to make it through and start doing the little things would make our lives so much easier. Here are some resolutions you may hear from your average college student this New Years:

1. Save money (instead of blowing it all at the bar)

2. Drink less alcohol

3. Study harder

4. Actually go to the 8 am class for once

5. Eat something green (or just not fried)

6. Check out the campus gym

7. Maybe run on the treadmill

8. Do some extra credit assignments for class

9. Go to bed before 3am

10. Get up earlier than noon

11. Refrain from always texting in class

12. Start the 10-page research paper a few days earlier than when it's due

13. Watch less Netflix

14. Lay off the pizza and icecream

15. Stay hydrated (alcohol doesn't help this)

16. Drink less 5-hour energy and monster drinks

17. Stop procrastinating and work on your time management skills

18. Read a good book cover to cover

19. Stay in for a night -- the bar isn't going anywhere

20. Take care of yourself when you're sick

21. Call your parents more

22. Eat healthier foods

23. Make some new friends and keep in touch with old ones

24. Get better grades

25. Do your laundry more than once a month

26. Cook at home instead of ordering take out

27. Choose not to have that extra shot

28. Give back to society and do more charity work

29. Pace yourself when out at the bar

30. Limit time on/when using social media

31. Live in the moment more (not through Snapchat)

32. Participate in class and try to learn something

33. Go to your professor's office hours (it'll pay off)

34. Don't go out the night before you have a test-- there will always be another party

35. Eat breakfast more often

40. Drink less coffee

41. Make smarter decisions

42. Stop classifying ramen as dinner

43. Do all of your homework

44. Try to boost your GPA

45. Treat your body better-- you only get one!!!

46. Take risks that you think might end well

47. Work hard (you'll regret it if you don't)

48. Party in moderation

49. Be a better person

50. Go out of your way to help others

College students everywhere can relate to these resolutions. They may sound funny, but I believe that they are actually quite achievable too!! I think it would be in every student's best interests to attempt to tackle a few of these resolutions in 2018. After all, we get wiser with age...right?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
