14 Places You'll Totally Want To Add To Your Travel Bucket List

If you're like me, you've never really done much travelling. That's not to say I don't want to travel, but I just haven't had many opportunities. Sure, I've done your standard out-of-state family visit trip and a Disney vacation, but there are plenty of places outside the United States that I want to explore. I've only been out of the country once before - to Belize - and it definitely made me want to see more of the world. Here's a list of places I've always wanted to visit!

1. Amsterdam


Amsterdam is first on my list for a few reasons. It's beautiful, with all the canals and architecture. Also, there's a lot of history there. I'd love to visit the Anne Frank museum and the Corrie ten Boom House someday!

2. Prince Edward Island


If you've ever read "Anne of Green Gables," you understand why I want to visit this place. Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery's descriptions alone, it sounds like one of the most beautiful places in the world.

3. Tulsa, OK


This seems like an odd choice, but one of my favorite books, "The Outsiders," is set in Tulsa. The movie was filmed there as well, and the house they used has since been turned into a museum! I would love to see my favorite book come to life like that.

4. London


Call me a nerd, but there's so much history in London. Between all the museums and all the landmarks, there are so many things I want to see. Plus, it's the birthplace of Shakespeare, who wouldn't get excited about that?

5. Israel


Sometimes, it's hard to think about all the Bible stories you grow up hearing about actually happening at a place you can visit. I think it would be so cool to see the places where people like Moses, David, and Jesus lived, to walk where they walked. Seeing history right in front of you makes it more real, so I definitely want to visit Israel one day!

6. Ireland


My dad visited Ireland when I was younger, and after he showed me all the pictures he took, I knew I wanted to go there myself one day! Plus, they have a bunch of castles there - who wouldn't want to see some castles?

7. Iceland


Aside from being absolutely beautiful, it's super cheap to go to Iceland. They want to increase tourism there, so it's pretty cheap to fly there and experience the sights.

8. Rome


Between the food and the history, I will be in my happy place when I visit Rome someday. I can't even begin to list the places I want to visit in Rome - there's far too many!

9. Hawaii


Hawaii is warm and a group of islands, what else could I want? Plus, the USS Arizona memorial is there, and I've wanted to see that since I did a report on it in middle school.

10. Belize (Again)


As my only trip out of the country so far, Belize has a special place in my heart. I want to go back and visit the places I went to before, and get to explore more of such a beautiful country!

11. Egypt


Pyramids, mummies, Nile River, need I say more?

12. Australia


There's so much flora and fauna that we don't get to see in North America, so I think it would definitely be a fun trip! Also, I've always wanted to go to the Southern Hemisphere to see the different constellations that can't be seen up here.

13. France


I'm very French, so I'd love to visit any part of France just to see the land of my ancestors. Plus, a trip to the Eiffel Tower would be pretty cool, wouldn't it?

14. Barcelona


Ever since watching The Cheetah Girls 2, I've always wanted to visit Spain. I would love to be immersed in the culture, experience all the amazing things Spain has to offer, and get a chance to practice my Spanish (which is extremely rusty)!

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.
