Resolutions For The New Year

With 2017 right around the corner, we need to talk about something. Resolutions. Every year millions of people vow that they will do something that they have never done before and stick with it. For many people, it is loosing weight or eating healthier and for some it can be as easy as texting their mom every day. There is no end to what a resolution can be and that is amazing. Your resolution should be personal to you to make you a better person or to make yourself feel good. Don't do a resolution because someone else is telling you to. I compiled a list of popular resolutions in case you need a little inspiration to what you could possibly attempt in the new year.

1. Lose weight or eat healthy.

I know I mentioned this one in my introduction, but it is the perfect one to start off this list. If you are trying to get healthy, now is the time to do it. The new year is a clean slate for you. You can reinvent yourself however you see fit.

2. Become more organized.

This resolution is a personal favorite of mine. It is always a good idea to get ahead and be as organized as humanly possible. This resolution can be using a planner or cleaning up clutter.

3. Do a random act of kindness every day.

It is always a good thing to share a little happiness everyday in your actions. The world could use a little more love throughout the year.

4. Read more.

Books are awesome. If you spend a little time a month to read a little more, that could help you immensely. I'm not going to tell you what to do, but have a little fun with your book choice if you choose this resolution.

5. Grow mentally.

This should be the mindset for every year. Growing mentally is amazing. You realize things about yourself and you grow as a person. The best part of this is that you don't have to actively do anything for it. All you need to do is grow just a little bit and you have reached your goal.

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.
