The One New Year’s Resolution That EVERYONE Should Follow

New Year's is quickly approaching, and when I think of New Year's, I think of resolutions. Many of the typical resolutions you hear every year include losing weight, being more studious, stop smoking, etc. However, the one New Year's resolution that is rarely thought about is being kind to one another.

In a previous article I wrote, I voiced my opinion in why it is priceless to be a decent human being. Well that still reigns true, or I wouldn't be writing this article to you. The simplest actions can really make someone's day, and makes you feel great as well. Even just sending a text to someone who is in need of encouragement, giving someone a compliment, smiling at someone or giving a hug can change the dynamic of someone's entire day. Always consider what people may be going through in which they may need some positivity.

As youngsters we were taught to treat others as we wish to be treated, while this is so true, we should also think about others the way we wish to be thought of and speak to others in a way that we wish to be spoken of or spoken to.

So what it comes down to for me is, send that text, wish that person good luck, buy that person a coffee, pay someone a compliment, tell that person you love them; life is just too short to have any regrets. Everyone appreciates acts of kindness. Studies have shown that being kind actually makes people genuinely happy on a number of levels.

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.
