Sometimes life is hard, but it’s not out to get you.

15 Pieces Of Advice Every Realist Wants You To Know

1. It's okay to not want to stay in one place, to not want to be with the same people. It’s okay to get bored of people, just make sure you're not actually bored of yourself.

2. You can restart your life as many times as you want, just find comfort in starting over.

3. There is no such thing as feeling "too much". Feel every emotion that washes over you to the fullest, good or bad.

4. Everything won't always work out. Life will not just fall into place, but work with what you have while you have it.

5. Let yourself get hurt, a flower doesn't grow without a storm.

6. Growing up does not entail life slowing down; no one can stay young forever.

7. You are allowed to feel sorry for yourself, just don't force others to feel sorry for you too.

8. It's okay to not know how you feel, it's okay to be scared, but don't live your life behind closed doors. Nothing will tear you apart more than watching someone live the life you created for yourself but were too afraid to live.

9. You may not feel bad lying to those around you, but lying to yourself will haunt you every day.

10. Be positive, but don’t hide from the negativity in the world— despite your best efforts it will always be there.

11. Listen to other people's advice, but don't always take it; chances are they don't know what's best for you.

12. If someone is walking on eggshells around you, expect to see them to walk away from you.

13. Being selfish for your own mental health Is 100% allowed, but remember your actions do effect those around you.

14. Change who you are, but only for yourself.

15. Fall in love, but don't forget that falling out of love is beautiful too.

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.

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.
