Sorry, Oprah. My Book Club Is Better.

But I still love you.

So you know what I love?

Books. Reading. The whole nine.

I rarely have the time to do so, but when you read books by Lisa Jackson, you can definitely make the time. During a lunch break, on the way to's possible. Lucky for me, I have a friend that enjoys reading just as much as I do. So what did we create....?

Our very own two-person book club! And surprisingly, it works. I've been on a Lisa Jackson kick for about a year now, and that high is still going very strongly. If you haven't read anything by her, drop everything you're doing right now and go buy one of her books. It doesn't matter which one it is, just buy ANY book by her and you'll be satisfied.

I don't want to give too much away so you can be properly awed by her books, but I will say this. If you like murder-mystery stories and stories where you think you know who the killer is and are almost always 97% wrong by the end of the book, then Lisa Jackson is the author for you.

And if you're anything like my friend and me, you don't need seven or eight people to be a part of a book club. Two is a good enough number.

We both buy the books and then we switch as necessary. Now, we're currently reading a series, and the only bad thing is when one of us finishes the series and the other is still clueless and we have to try our hardest to not ruin it for the other person. It's quite the task.

So get to it.

Find yourself a friend that loves to read. Buy two books and let it expand from there. Trust me when I say it will be the best decision you've made in a while.

Sorry, Oprah. I think I just one-upped you.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
