To Graduating High School Seniors,

The day has finally come — you're officially a high school graduate! You should be so proud of yourself and your accomplishments, along with making it this far! High school could've been rough at times, I know, but overall, you finally made it and I hope you're able to reflect back on these past four years on a positive note!

Graduating high school is going to seem so surreal at first because you felt as if this day would never come — but it did! It'll feel strange for a while, even once you begin college or anything regarding your future. However, that sense of surrealism will pass and you'll slowly begin to adjust to this new life after high school!

With that being said, now that high school is finished, you have your whole life ahead of you which also leaves more room for bigger and better things! You no longer have a set schedule every day, you won't see the same faces every day, and finally, you won't feel as confined anymore! Yes, there will be times where you'll find yourself reminiscing and feeling lost, but my advice to you — do not get hung up on the past, especially high school!

Sure, these past four years were probably the best four years or maybe even the worst. Either way, don't get so caught up and dwell on it. You're allowed to miss and look back on all of the memories and good times —but you also have to remember that there is so much more out there in the world and in your future, besides high school.

Graduating high school is such an important and exciting milestone in your life — but this also means you're onto your next chapter that consists of so many more milestones. So go out there, enjoy yourself, and make your mark!

This your time now and you've only just begun!

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.
