The secret to a killer week is a little self-care

10 Reasons You Should Stay In Tonight

Trying to keep up with the social scene of being a young adult is actually extremely tiring. Despite that your friends are literally pulling your arms and legs to go out, I promise you that there’s great reasons to say, “no,” and stay in instead.

1. You've had a long day.

Hell, you’ve had a long week, month, semester or year. You’re exhausted in every form possible and you just can’t find the energy be anywhere other than your bed for the night.

2. Staying in is treating yourself.

Staying in means you’ll finally have the time to social media stalk that girl from your English class. She always has really cute outfits and your curious if the rest of her life is as fabulous as her wardrobe

3. It's good for the body and the wallet.

A body at rest stays at rest, right? When you hit your bed after class on Friday, don’t move for the rest of the right. Your body needs a break, and face it, your wallet could use a break too. Staying in will shrink the bags under your eyes, but not your wallet.

4. The weekend already came a couple of times this week.

Margarita Monday, tequila Tuesday, wasted Wednesday, thirsty Thursday… it’s okay to stay in on Friday.

5. You need to be productive tomorrow.

Your days are busy, and you only have so much time to get things done that you actually need to get done; a hangover would provide the perfect excuse to avoid all responsibilities.

6. You could productive tonight, too.

Staying in magically gives you extra time you thought you’d never have. It always feels like there isn't enough hours in the day, but there is if you prioritize!

7. Sleeping is better than everything.
Everyone could use more sleep.

8. Getting ready is too stressful, anyway.

Going out comes with so much unnecessary stress and use of energy. Making sure you have enough time to shower, blow-dry your hair, do your hair, your makeup, pick an outfit out, change it three times and still have time to dilly-dally in between is not worth the anxiety.

9. Alone time is healthy.

Chances are you rarely have alone time at school. Between classes, sports, Greek life, clubs, on-campus events, group projects, going to the cafeteria, Ah! There are just so many people around all the time. Having a night in by yourself to just be alone with you and your thoughts is good for your soul.

10. Watching Netflix is healthy, too.

Catching up on some missed episodes or just watching a movie means you’re allowing yourself to wind down and relax. It’s extremely important to give yourself some down time. If a Friday or Saturday night is the only night you can pencil relaxing into your schedule, then so be it. It’s a sacrifice worth making.

11. You definitely won't regret it.

Despite what everyone’s Snapchat stories look like, you’re not missing out. I guarantee the next morning, you’ll still be pleased with your choice to have had a night dedicated to yourself.

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.
