Spring break has a reputation for creating wild and crazy stories, but that doesn't have to be the case. Of course, I would love to spend my spring break on the beach with some of my closest friends, but I'd be lying if I didn't also love a little rest and relaxation at home.

Sure maybe catching up on sleep and different TV shows from the comfort of my own couch don't sound like a great spring break, but it can be just as rewarding. Here are 17 reasons spring break at home is just as great as a spring break vacation.

1. Home cooked meals

2. Sleep

3. You get to bring all your dirty laundry home

4. Visiting family

5. More sleep

6. Seeing non-college friends 

7. Time to binge watch new shows

8. Free time to relax and do nothing 

9. Time to get organized and caught up on work

10. Sleeping in as long as you want

11. Seeing your pets

12. You can pick up some more shifts at your local job

13. A chance to hit up the mall

14. Wearing sweatpants and pajamas all day

15. You can visit your favorite local restaurants (aka Wawa)

16. More time for playing on your phone

17. Have I mentioned you get to sleep more?

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.

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.
