10 Reasons To Get Over Your Fear Of Snakes

When I was younger, I had an obsession with collecting seashells. One summer afternoon on some beach my parents took me to in some part of Florida, I had collected so many sea shells at once that my hands were overflowing with them. The shells kept spilling out of my hands and hitting my feet, creating tiny abrasion on my toes that my mother would always yell at me about, but I still kept collecting.

As I scanned the sand for some more sea shells, I discovered an odd red and black pattern on some sort of material I wasn't quite familiar with buried under the sand. So, being the curious kid that my father raised me to be, I dropped all the shells I had collected all over my feet, thinking that I had just found a rare treasure that I would never discover again. I bent over to give it a poke. It was squishy like one of those squeeze toys, yet smooth like a freshly buffed fingernail. In not even a second, whatever I'd just touched slithered away from me and buried itself in the sand. I screamed and ran away to my mommy. All my shells were lost that day and I had a newfound fear of snakes, even though I didn't necessarily have a terrifying encounter with one.

Anyway, my point is that I, like many other Americans, am afraid of snakes -- or was until I saw these cute pictures of snakes with little hats on them!

1. Look at this cute little innocent snake getting ready for a rodeo.

" Baby, lock them doors and turn the lights down low."

2. Why siesta when you can fiesta?

3. This snake wants to wish you a happy birthday!

With no petty message behind it.

4. "You're a wizard, Harry."

5. A mystical snake.

If anyone ever tells you that unicorns don't exist, send them this picture.

6. Also, this.

7. Chivalry is not dead!

Sliding into your DMs like....

8. It's okay to get a little festive.

I don't even celebrate Easter and this snake makes me want to paint some eggs.

9. Coachella ready!

Some Coachella inspiration for the girls who go to Coachella just to look cute and say they went to Coachella even though they have never heard of any of the artists playing!

10. Just a snake trying to stay warm.

I don't even know if this counts as a hat, but people wear beanies all the time and I'm pretty sure beanies are actually just oversized socks for your head.

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.
