Read Me Everyday For Positive Thoughts

In a time where it might seem helpless, I want to remind you that you're worth it.

Read Me Everyday For Positive Thoughts

We are living in a time where, for some, the changing happening around the nation is seen as strong, impactful, and living up to some individuals values. But that is not the case for millions of others.

Some people are waking up and being greeted with the news that they are going to be affected in someway or another. Everyday, a new group of minorities are targeted and impacted.

If this is the case for you, I want to remind you of some things. If you need to be reminded of this everyday, then read this everyday. But remember, you are WORTH IT.

1. You will never be silenced

You will use your first amendment right to stand up for what you believe in.

2. You have the power

If you're a high school student, you can do it. If you're a college student, YOU can do it. If you're a parent, YOU can do it. Everyone has the power of CHANGE in their hands.

3. You have my support

And so do MILLIONS of others; I promise you.

4. You will make it

Don't think about the alternative ending. Set your goal and let that be your vision.

5. You CAN push through

Don't let the failure demon drag you down. You are so much stronger than that.

6. Wake up everyday with the urge to fight

I know this is a tough one, but if you need to cry and think about the horrible things do it, but always remember you have to wake up the next day with the urge to fight. It doesn't have to stop when the tears are too much to handle.

7. Listen to the people who disagree with you the most

Nothing will happen if you don't get a change to work with the other side. There can be some common ground that might save a lot.

8. Always remember that it ismore than okay to fail at first

If you don't succeed the first time, always remember to get back up and try again. You never know when the right time will come.

9. Surround yourself with people who want to fight the same fights

Make a group, join a group, or even make donations to organizations online. When you are a part of something special, you know you are doing something big.

10. Take care of yourself

Love what you do. Do it with a passion. Do what you do for yourself and the community.

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.
