Wow that's a good one.

I'll use that one.

You met five twins?!

I was like...

Somebody in my hall was a quadruple twin.

I've met sextuplets before and I'm like...that doesn't make sense to me.

Oooooh that's where the vegetarian is!



There's like a vegan burger

That's pretty cool


Let's just go there tomorrow

And so um the answer is yes and no.

Did you go to the practice rooms last night?

Did you practice last night?

I was so done that I just...

Did your wrist hurt?

My wrist hurt a little bit.

My wrists don't hurt my fingers hurt.

My fingers just hurt.

All the joints..?

Do you have any pain?

Nah Juney's a beast.

Yeah, like my wrists.

No pain it's just like...

My entire face just shut down

I was boutta sleep at the piano.

I wanna sleep on a desk or something or just on the floor but I'm scared...

We should tell him we'd rather practice.

You're allowed to play for a certain time.

Does he have like actual lessons?

I think it's any time; if you need help just go.

I thought it's just chilling...

We're going to do this for a month

Stay tuned.

Bro our wrists are going to hurt so much.

When my right hand bends, my wrist hurts.

You like shift your body to it?

Especially if it's like down there.

If you're down there for a while, though, your whole body is down there for a while.

Ok well his wrist hurts too so....

I'm like sliding the keys right now.

I might just get a slice of pizza to go...you know?

I've eaten straight cantaloupe for the last... three days.

Our RA told us not to eat the fruit because they're sketchy.

I ate that honeydew and it tasted like...not good.

I think they hold onto it for a whole week.

The blueberries are bad too.

Don't touch the fruit.

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.
