1. Do the dishes

Don't be scared to do small chores for your parents that make their lives easier, and don't wait until they ask you to do it.

2. Make dinner

It is a kind gesture.

3. Take out the trash

Likewise, doing a simple chore without being asked first really helps.

4. Get good grades

Your hard work proves to them how much you care!

5. Come home before curfew

Don't let them worry about you!

6. Pump gas for them

Sunny, rainy, windy, cold, no matter what the weather is, always offer to pump their gas.

7. Take care of your pets (if you have any)

Walk the dog without being told to or clean the litter box without having a parent remind you.

8. Make smart choices for yourself

Make sure to make smart decisions. Don't lie to them about where you're going or who you are going out with- it could end up being a dangerous situation.

9. Do the laundry

And by that, I mean their laundry included.

10. If they ask you to do something, do it right away

Don't wait hours to do something they asked, do it right away. It shows some respect.

11. Thank them

It doesn't have to be a long hand written note. Even a small "Thanks for dinner, Mom!" or "Thanks for picking me up, Dad!" can go a long way.

12. Take them out to eat

Treat them! They do a lot for you, do something kind for them!

13. Get a job 

It shows that you are capable of taking care of yourself, and relieves them for paying for certain things.

14. Keep your room clean

Parents usually hate a messy room.

15. Keep yourself clean

I assume self-hygiene is always implied in most households. Just take care of yourself.

16. Offer to pay for things

Even if it is something small like a candy bar, I'm sure they appreciate it.

17. Try your best in everything 

They love to see you succeed!

18. Celebrate Mother and Father's Day, even if it's something simple

It is their day, make it special.

It's not that hard to show simple gestures of kindness to your parents. Make sure you always keep them in mind- even if it is just small things.

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.
