My Review Of Rock Run
Madelyn Adams

After several months of home workouts and boring routines, remaining within the same town has felt tiring. As a quick day trip, my best friend wanted to explore new areas close to home. We stumbled upon Rock Run, a beautiful area hidden within nature. Even though we only spent a few hours at this new location, I recommend you visit the area if you are in need of a short trip too.

Rock Run offers several breathtaking views throughout the trip. Centered around a seemingly endless stream, the sparkling water creates a relaxing environment. Several hiking trails surround the river, and each trail leads to a different section of the water. The greenery acts as a shady canopy, helping maintain the temperature. Additionally, multiple waterfalls add to the scenery; I recommend running through them for more fun!

Technology played a significant role during the months of quarantine. Taking a break from the influx of breaking news and social media notifications is important in maintaining stable mental health. Rock Run—an area that lacks cell phone service entirely—provides a beautiful space to step away from technology and breathe fresh air. Personally, I greatly enjoyed this aspect of the trip; I left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

There are three main trails: Upper Trail, Middle Trail, and Lower Trail. However, you can create your own path at any point along the road. My friend and I chose to follow the Upper Trail, which leads directly to the swimming hole. Here, my friend and I dove into the water and spent hours swimming in the cool water. The cold sensation quickly disappeared, allowing for an enjoyable time.

Finally, Rock Run is a relatively quiet area where you can forget about the world, even just for a few minutes. In a time when my mind spins with countless questions, I used the time at Rock Run to leave my worries behind. Upon returning home, I felt just a bit more free, ready to take on what the world has to offer me.

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.
