Project Apollo Archives

If you have not heard of the "Project Apollo Archives" then you definitely need to check this out (LINK HERE). This project was created and done by NASA's Johnson Center as they scanned the High-Resolution images as it now consists of every photo taken by NASA Astronauts during the Apollo missions. With over 14 thousand images (14,406 to be exact) these images are must see material as the website has collected over 1 billion views since being completed.

The Apollo missions resulted in 12 Astronauts landing on the surface of the moon, as this project shows pictures from missions 7 all the way through to missions 17. Included in this project are the most famous pictures taken by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, as they were the first humans to land on the Moon in July of 1969 during the Apollo 11 mission.

As you're browsing through the images, there will be a few that you recognize, like the famous picture of Neil Armstrong's first step on the moon, and the American flag alone on the barren landscape of the Moon. Some of the more famous pictures include the images the Astronauts took of our home planet. One of my favorite pictures is the image that shows an "Earthrise", which shows our planet from the surface of the moon.

Even if you're not a big space nerd like me you still definitely should take the time to look through some of these images. What makes these photos even more special is the fact that all of these photos are completely unedited. The photos being unedited is cool because since these are the raw photos from the astronauts, it gives a cool insight into these missions from the astronauts perspectives.

It's definitely something that you should check out when you have some downtime, you'll definitely be shocked by some of the images, enjoy!

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.

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.
