Everyone is so quick to make a list of New Year resolutions but what about new semester resolutions? Spring semester is the perfect time to perfect all your flaws and learn from your mistakes during your fall term. Here are 10 of my resolutions. Build from them and make your own. There is never a bad time to make a positive change.

1. Get more sleep: No this does not mean to sleep through your 8ams or nap your life away, but do your best to not pull an all-nighter every night of the week.

2. Read your textbooks: You paid how many dollars for your textbooks? Make the money worth it and actually take the time to read what is in them.

3. Try new things: This one goes for a lot of things, try new foods, try new classes, try new activities

4. Get involved: Your school is bound to have a club or sports team that would love to have you join. It’s a great way to make friends and maybe find a new a new favorites Tuesday night activity.

5. Exercise: College shouldn’t be only about working your brain but your body too! I’m not having to go pump the iron at the gym with a protein shake in your hand but go for walk around campus to get some cardio in. many universities offer yoga or Zumba classes at no expense. Find a way to relieve stress, stay fit and have fun.

6. Make new friends: These are going to be some of the toughest years of your life, but they can also be the most memorable as well. Open yourself to meeting new people and you will be surprise by how many friends you will make.

7. Study for five more minutes: Stop looking for reasons to study for less time and study for more time. I know it is never easy to focus when the world around you is so distracting but you can do it.

8. Eat better: That ice cream bar is tempting but just look the other way. There are much healthier options in your dining hall. Learn to love fruits and veggie!

9. Stop procrastinating: Warning- your deadline is closer than it appears. Don’t wait till last minute to do an assignment. The stress isn’t worth it!

10. Be yourself: Stop trying to be something you’re not. You are most comfortable in your own skin so wear it proudly.

Have a great semester and remember that you are in control of your own life! Good luck. Get A’s and make your fam proud!

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.
