10 Ways To Kill Time During A Road Trip

In all honesty, the first couple of hours of being on the road doesn't seem so bad. Once, what seems like you have done everything, you start asking "are we there yet?" or "how many more hours?" Here are 10 solutions to keep you busy while sitting in the passenger or back seats. Sorry, drivers!

Read your favorite book

Reading

Grab your favorite novel and reread it! If you're like me and get car sick from even reading on my phone, audiobooks are for you. Just sit back and listen.

Karaoke

White Chicks

Not into reading? Scroll down your playlists, pick a song, and sing — or should I say scream — until you lose your voice!

Take a nap

Nap

Feeling tired or even bored? Simply close your eyes because time flies when you nap. You'll be at your destination in no time!

Make sure driver doesn't fall asleep

Passenger

Be a good passenger/friend and keep your driver company while the others in the back are sleeping. Don't worry, in the next rotation it'll be your turn to sleep.

Vlog

vlog

This is for all you aspiring Youtube vloggers. If you don't have a fancy, expensive camera, an iPhone would do. Take videos of everything and anything to capture all the little details from your road trip.

Play the license plate game

Look around

I don't know about you, but when my family and I get super bored this is always the go-to game. It's so funny how competitive the game gets. The real question is, how well do you know your license plates?

Go on your phone

scrolling through SM

This is the perfect time to scroll through social media and play your phone games for hours. No need to touch your phone when you're there, am I right?

Name that song

I knew it

Winner gets to choose the next song! Wait five seconds . . . if you know it, answer!

Mad Libs

Mad libs

Mad Libs are a hit or miss. You'll either laugh until you pee or wonder why this game was ever invented.

 Jam out again and again

Jam out

Finally, you and your friends are so close, yet so far from where you have to be. Blast the volume, turn up the bass and jam out over and over again until you're there!

Finished with the list? Do it ALL over again!

Happy spring break!

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.

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.
