7 Reasons To Surround Yourself With Positive People

Positive people lift you up, be with those that lift you up.

Practicing gratitude.


These individuals practice gratitude on a daily basis so they will start to rub off on you. When rubbing off on you they will show you to look at the little things not only the big things.

Focusing on the positive!


Their outlooks on daily life and life, in general, are more positive. The positivity that they have surrounding them will start to rub off and then your mood will start to change. You'll feel freer and it will be beneficial.

They lift you up!


Negative people tear you down. Positive people lift you up. Surround yourself with people who lift you up and help you reach your goals instead of being boulders in the way.

Positive influences!!


They are the one positive thing on the crappiest of your days. They help you to get out of your funk and back into your groove of your day to day.



They help you make better choices. They encourage you and make sure that you are on the best possible path. They make sure that you are reaching what you want to and are happy and feel supported while doing it.

Happy Memories


They help you to create more happy and fun memories. The best memories that you will be able to recall are going to be with this person. They will support you and help you make those awesome memories.



When you don't have motivation they give you the motivation you need to get it done. They are your number one supporter, their energy will help you get that extra boost you need.

The more positive people you surround yourself with the better it will be. Don't let those toxic people bring you down when you have so many more positive things you can be looking at!

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.
