Simple Reminders Why Life is Actually Really Awesome

A little pick-me-up to remind us all that life really is a lot better than a bad day can make it seem.

Simple Reminders Why Life is Actually Really Awesome

Life is stressful, and it's easy to let a bad day or week get us down. But it's important to remember to appreciate the little things, and realize that overall, life is actually pretty awesome. Here are a few reasons why that will put a smile on your face!

1) 356,000 babies were born today.

2) Thousands and thousands of people came together and shared, tweeted and posted trying to get Kelly, a child battling leukemia, to The Ellen Show; just because it's one of his biggest dreams!

3) The average price of gas has gone down more than a dollar since last year.

4) The voices of Minnie and Mickey Mouse were actually married in real life.

5) American soldiers playing with an adorable Afghani child on a sunny day.

6) This couple announced their pregnancy by remixing a Taylor Swift song ... #genius.

7) This place actually exists (Cinque Terre, Italy).

8) The Today Show is training a puppy named Wrangler to become a seeing-eye dog to be donated to someone in need.

9) Even horses want to be included when their friends take selfies.

10) Nate (Chace Crawford) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) are actually best friends in real life. They were even roommates!

11) And so are Monica and Rachel!

12) There's a company that delivers cookies straight to your front door ... even late-night. 

13) Penguins mate for life ... and they propose with a pebble.

14) There is a prison program that encourages inmates to give back to society by training service dogs for those in need.

15) Less than a year ago it took over $1.50 to get one euro. Today it costs less than $1.15. Better exchange rate = more travel!

16) Boy puppies often let girl puppies win while playing in order to get to know them better and keep the game going. 

So when you're having a bad day, or things just aren't going your way ... Just take some time to stop and smell the roses. And then maybe you'll be as happy as this puppy!

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.
