Owning A Jeep: It's Kind Of A Big Deal

One does not simply own a Jeep.

Owning A Jeep: It's Kind Of A Big Deal

1. When you walk outside on a bright sunny day (or not, your Jeep's tough) and get to set your eyes on your big beautiful friend.

2. When you see another Jeep on the road like, oh hello there, friend.

3. But, it's a whole other story when you see your Jeep's twin. You catch the attention of the other Jeep's driver, and think wow, have they got good taste.

4. Because two Jeeps are better than one.

5. When you've got your Jeep's top off, a casual drive looks like:

6. Or, on a cool summer night:

7. When it's raining or snowing really hard out, and your friends think your plans are ruined, but you know better...

"There's five feet of water outside." - your friend
"And your point is...?" - you
"I got this, guys." - your Jeep

8. When it's just you and your Jeep, together forever, alone on the road.

9. When you're making plans for a road trip with your friends, on the outside you play it cool: "We can take the Jeep if you want." But on the inside you're screaming:

10. When you get new goodies for your big buddy.

"I just spent three straight paychecks, but look at what I got you us!"

11. You know how to really take care of your Jeep, because even though it's your big adventurous pal, you know it's not a toy:

"Sorry, I have to go slow around the turns." - me
"Because Jeep's are top heavy." - my friend.
"How dare you..." - me

12. Especially because your Jeep is a good role model - it's strong, resilient, determined, and probably made of magic:

13. And because you mean well when you try to give it a little TLC:

14. When you're away at school or on a trip and you've been separated from your Jeep, everyone around you thinks you're overreacting, but this is you actually toning it down:

"I'll be OK guys. Just a little LOT of separation anxiety."

15. Because it can be hard giving up this view:

16. Some people have the nerve to say, "it's just a car..."

17. "...Why do you care so much...?"

18. But you just ignore them.

19. Because you love your Jeep. And that's what matters.

20. Your Jeep is not just a car.

21. It's your source of all things fun...

22. It's your sanctuary...

23. It's your partner-in-crime. And you wouldn't have it any other way.

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.
