Babies and kids can be adorable especially when it's your niece and/or nephew.

1. Getting to babysit

Cause babies and kids are adorable.

2. But being able to give the kid back at the end of the day

Giphy

Load the kid up with sugar 15 mintues before the parent comes back and you'll be the cool aunt/uncle who gives them candy.

3. Getting to see a kid grow up

Giphy

And become their own little person and seeing which parent they take after the most.

4. But also getting sleep

Giphy

Sleep is nice

5. Less pressure of messing up

Giphy

You don't need to know nearly as much on how to raise a kid.

6. Getting to see your sibling become a parent

Giphy

Especially if he/she has always wanted a family.

7. Introducing the kid to movies and shows and sports and activities and etc.

Giphy

Because everyone in the family loves something different and gets to share it.

8. A kid loving you because you are awesome

Giphy

And you're their auntie or uncle!

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.
