Scuba Diving Is What Keeps Me Sane

There's nothing but me and the sea and I love it.

Scuba Diving Is What Keeps Me Sane
Trinity Tew

Ever since I was little, I've loved the ocean. The beach, sand and all, makes my heart happy. In fact, it's more than a happy place, but most people don't get it. I live to jump into the ocean one more time. But one thing that's even better than jumping into it, waist high, is jumping into the ocean off a boat with dive gear on.

Scuba diving is by far the greatest and most spectacular hobby you can have.

If you disagree, you're wrong. If you've gone diving before, you know what I mean. The ocean is wayyy cooler than land and I'd much rather spend my time pruning up at the bottom of a reef than spending my time doing anything else on land. I have salt water in my veins, it's what I'm made for. In fact, it's a running joke at my house than I'm an actual mermaid because I eat salt on everything- and not just a normal amount, I'm talking enough to where you can see the salt on every bite. I don't taste my food before I salt it, and most of the time, I end up needing more.

When I'm living a normal life up here above sea level, I dream in blues and the colors of coral. The ocean is good for me, no doubt about it. I've been itching to get back in my gear so badly that the other day, I dreamed I could breathe underwater without my regulator.

Scuba diving is my bit of Heaven on Earth and there's nothing that can take that away from 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.

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.
