Seasons Changing

Each season brings a feeling of accomplishment and love.

Seasons Changing

Summer is coming to a close and we'll soon be cresting into Fall. Things are a little different this year, that's for sure. School is starting earlier, the activities we enjoyed in the summer were limited, and we're finding that the fall will be no different. I mean, the NC State Fair has been cancelled. Not sure where I'll get a sample of different fried foods this year. Despite all of the oddities this year, we can still think of each season and find some kind of joy.


Of course many of us take summer classes. They're usually shorter so this allows a good amount of time for summer relaxation. If you're like me, you enjoy going places during these few months. Summer is a time to travel, go to the beach or mountains, hang out with friends and family, and feel a sense of relaxation. I like to hit up the beach a few times, go for hikes, and at least go on one big trip to another state. This year has been a little different because of COVID-19, but I've managed a few little trips to enjoy this less hectic time of the year.


This is my favorite season of the year. It's a time that makes me feel cozy and excited about the weather cooling off. I love the idea of drinking coffee or tea during a mild day. Sweaters come out of the closet more. Halloween is during this time of the year. We get to look forward to trick-or-treaters, decorating the house into a spooky scene, and watching the leaves change colors. I also enjoy not having to keep up with the yard as much.


The semester is usually wrapping up during this season. Although we're bombarded with finals and submitting our final papers, we have a few things to look forward to. It seems like this is a good opportunity to spend more time with our families. We have Christmas and the New Year's to decorate and celebrate for. I love adding new things outside for Christmas like lights and yard figures. I have an excuse to drink more coffee and indulge in a cup of hot chocolate every now and again. We get to look back on the past year and hopefully feel happy about what we've accomplished.


This would go down as my second favorite season. I have a trend on favorites in regards to cooler weather. The humidity is low and we mostly see temperatures in the 60s and 70s. The flowers start to bloom, and there are more opportunities to go outside without freezing or burning. Although many are knee deep in school work at this time, we start thinking about graduation, or ending another semester to enjoy the summer again.

Life seems like an ongoing circle. We go season to season, trying to live our best life and accomplish our goals as each day passes. No year is the same, but we still find little things that make us happy and fulfilled. I know days seem tough right now, but remember that we'll continue to move to each new day with things to look forward to and to share in the love from our family and friends.

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.
