Picture this. You're sitting in your college apartment and you look down at your phone. You have a notification from your university, and it's nothing in regards to homework or a test. You look up at all of your roommates and instantly jump up and high five each other. CLASSES ARE CANCELLED TOMORROW. It's music to your ears because you have no responsibilities for the next 24 hours. There are many perks a college student has on a snow day, and all of them are equally as great.

The most obvious reason is that you get to sleep in. As college students, we are often sleep deprived, but on snow days we are lucky enough to catch up on some sleep.

One of the more interesting things to consider during a college snow day is how different it is from how high school snow days were. For starters, in college, you don't have to make up snow days. That's right, you heard correctly. You don't have to worry about your summer being shortened like you did in high school. Also, snow days in high school were considerably boring because nine times out of ten the roads were too bad to hang out with any of your friends. In college, most of your friends live just a few streets away, making it super easy to spend the day with them.

And let's not forget the best part of snow days for college students...THE DAGE. It's a term that means day-drink, that most use during the spring and fall when the weather is nice. But, when snow falls, and classes are cancelled nothing stops us from cracking open a natty. The cold weather and blizzard-like conditions certainly do not stop us partiers from getting our drink on.

There's just something about the snow that makes drinking 10x more fun! So, the next time you have classes cancelled, grab a Natty, walk down the street and grab your best friend!

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.
