Rain Rain Go Away

And Don't Come Back for A Month.

Rain Rain Go Away

If you live in Starkville, MS or attend Mississippi State University, you may have noticed that it's just a tad disgusting outside. I don't think Starkville has gone more than three days this year without rain, and i'm all rained out.

This past week or so, It has been foggy, cold, and rainy, everyones favorite combination. Personally, I prefer hot weather over cold weather any day. Especially this week, the weather has been at it's worst. There has also been several flash flood warnings as well as tornado warnings. And it seems as if everyday is a different season. For example, it will be 40 degrees one day, 70 degrees the next, and then 30 degrees. I honestly believe that Mississippi weather can't make up it's mind.

Because it has been raining non stop for the past week, there is barley any grass left, its all just mud and overflowing ditches. I only wish that it would stop raining, just for a little while, so that the mud could dry up. Speaking of mud, when I was walking to class the other day I was wearing my white vans, which was a mistake on my part, and stepped into an entire pool of mud. This incident, to say the least, was not at all fun and funky.

On top of all of this, the raining seems to be constant. I wish I could look out my window and see a rainbow or the sun, but instead I see sky covered in dark clouds. And I don't know about everyone else, but i'm really excited about the early spring were about to have, but with spring comes more rain.

With all of this being said, I hope that spring gets here soon because when it does, hopefully it will be a bit warmer. And to my fellow citizens of Starkville: stay toasty my friends.

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.
