A list of things that should stay in 2019

Things That Should Stay in 2019

Happy New Year! It's finally 2020! A new year along with a new decade! With that new decade comes a sea of trends and crazes that should stay within the previous year.

1. Cancel Culture

*cough* James Charles and Tati Westbrook *cough* This trend should stay in 2019 as we move into 2020. This year should be the year where we cancel someone and they stay cancelled. Either, cancel someone and keep them cancelled or listen to both sides of the story before jumping on a bandwagon and come to your own conclusions.

2. Bringing Yourself Down

We've all subjected to this. Maybe we saw someone who seemed perfect in every way and compared ourselves to them. Maybe we just felt like we weren't good enough and that's the problem. Being within that mindset is what stops you from achieving your dreams and aspirations. As we go into 2020, go in with the mindset that you can do whatever you put your mind to and watch as opportunities start rolling in.

3. Procrastination

Again, this is something that everyone has done for the past few years. I'm putting my foot down and forcing myself to get things done on time. I want to get things done ahead of time and be able to spend my time doing things I love. Spending time with friends, watching movies while cuddling up with my boyfriend, enjoying time to myself and meditating.

4. Toxic Relationships

If you're still in a relationship that even your friends are questioning, it's time to let that other half go. Now, yes, it'll be hard and there will be a lot of tears shed, but 2020 will be your year. Maybe this is the year where you enjoy your singleness. Get to know yourself more as a person. When you're in a relationship (especially a toxic one), you may tend to lose yourself a bit. When you're single, you get to reconnect with that part of yourself that was lost. If you think you may be in a toxic relationship, start up the conversation with your significant other and try to see where you two fell off.

5. Clothes You Never Wear

I bet you have some clothes within your closet that you never wear anymore. Maybe it's too small, too big, doesn't fit any occasion, or just isn't your style anymore. If you aren't getting any use out of the clothing, why not consider donating it? Letting the item of clothing have a better home where it'll get tons of use.

These aren't the only things that should stay in the past, but they are a few that I believe need to stay in 2019.

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.

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.
