Pick a Place and Go!

Pick a Place and Go!

If you know my friends and I, you know that we love to travel. Whether we are simply driving to Tupelo on a Friday night, driving to Miami for a bowl game, or heading off to Denver for spring break, we'll do it without giving it much thought. Some would say we're crazy for going on an almost 18-hour road trip, but to us, it is completely worth it. 

We are not in college forever. Soon, we will be college graduates with real jobs and possibly even families. Loading up into a car and doing something crazy won't always be a possibility, so why don't we as college students take advantage of our freedom while we can? 

Pick a place and go! It's not that hard. Of course, money can hold you back. Who said you have to stay in a 5-star resort, though? Doing something as simple as traveling to an away baseball game for a day is completely doable and cheap. You'll still get the adventure of going somewhere besides your hometown, and it beats staying in Starkville for the fifth weekend in a row. 

You can even go home with a friend. Chances are, you have a friend who is from somewhere pretty cool. One of my friends is from Baton Rouge, and thanks to her home, my friends and I have a free place to stay when we want to watch cheer on our Bulldogs when they play at LSU. It sure came in handy for the MSU-LSU football game this past fall. 

Grab your best friends and go some where! If you're still questioning a road trip, I can assure you the drive will be worth it. You'll make memories that you'll never forget. You'll get to see places that you may never see again. Or you may find your new favorite place that you want to move to. Just do it! I promise you won't regret it.

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.
