8 Places People Who Are From The Poconos Go While Home For Summer Break

The Poconos covers a large stretch, and has plenty to do, especially during the summer time! If you're a native to this area, you already know which spots people will be at, which is a blessing and a curse. So, here are a few popular spots to hit up during summer break!

1. Gabel's

I can guarantee you that if you went to Pocono Mountain East High school, you know what Gabels' is, and you WILL run into someone you know there. It's the most popular meet up spot for people during the summer, and the ice cream is bomb!

2. Big Star

Big Star is in Stroudsburg's territory, but they have the BEST comet's ever that are worth the drive!

3. Camelback

If you want to do something outdoors Camelback is a popular spot to go hiking, and they have the largest waterpark in Pennsylvania.

4. Skytop

If you think Camelback is too touristy, a lot of people go hiking on Skytop's trails! It has beautiful scenery, and leads to a waterfall!

5. The Crossings Premium Outlets

Because the only mall in the area is the Stroudsburg Mall (which everyone knows is a pathetic excuse for a mall) people always shop at the Crossings Premium Outlets. They have every store imaginable, and the sales are great!

6. The Bars on Main Street

If you're 21, this is definitely the happening spot on Friday and Saturday nights. But, beware, it will be a reunion for all of the surrounding high schools, especially at Marita's and Philly Pub.

7. Mt. Airy

If you are of age, the Mt. Airy Casino Resort is definitely a fun spot to hit. There's gambling, restaurants, and even concerts!

8. Montage Mountain

If you like country music, Montage Moutain is always a good spot for a concert. People always tailgate starting at 12 pm, and make a day out of 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.

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.
