An Ode To Socks

Life may get you down, but socks never will!

An Ode To Socks

If you know anything about me, you know that socks are one of my favorite things. They can’t be just any socks though. They have to be the ones with, say, cute little sloths on them for example.

Life may get you down, but fun socks never will (unless they start to die, in which case it might be rough day). Thankfully, however, socks generally have a decent life span and you don’t have to worry about a pair dying on the daily.

Generally, socks will always be there to brighten your day. You may fail a test, but at least you have hot pink socks with bananas on them. How can you not smile about that?

Weather got you down? Go with the flow and wear your sailboat socks!

Happy just because? Show it with your socks that have cheerful elephants riding bicycles!

Love to skate, but can’t currently be on the ice? Pretend to be on the ice with your skating penguin socks!

Can’t wait until summer? Get the tropical feels by wearing your sky-blue socks with parrots on them!

Feeling super cool? Wear one of your many pairs of Spiderman socks!

You see, you really can’t go wrong with a good pair of socks.

While I love them all, one of my favorites are ones with cacti simply because who in the world owns socks with cacti?! Well, I do!

Call me crazy, but I actually have a list going of socks I want. Ones with manatees, giraffe socks, and monkey socks just to name a few. I could go on, but then we would be here all day.

Want to start a sock collection, but don't know where to go? Have no fear, I got an answer! Target! I'd be lying if I say I haven't made a stop at Target just to see if they've updated their sock collection.

Need a day to celebrate? December 4th is National Sock Day!

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.
