Brave Your Spring Allergies And Take A Break Outside

It's allergy season, but braving the outdoors is definitely worth it this spring.

Brave Your Spring Allergies And Take A Break Outside
Sarah Cucco

It's spring, which means seasonal allergies are in full swing. While going outside is a for sure recipe for disaster, it may be worth it, especially in the midst of finals and exams. This time of year it can be easy to get trapped inside. After all, you have probably been hibernating all winter, and it is pretty easy to continue to lie under the covers and binge your favorite show. However, here are some things to consider before doing so.

Going outside and exercising, socializing, or just studying in nature decreases stress and increases brain function. To take advantage of this on a nice day, don't just study inside, but get a group of friends together, bring some snacks, and go study in your backyard, in a garden, or in a park!

If you have a dog, take them on an extra long walk in perfect 70-degree weather. Visit your local forest path with a friend you have not seen in a while and catch up. Fall in love with spring again because there is so much to appreciate about the season of rebirth: blossoming flowers, green grass, a perfectly blue sky, and the chance to start anew.

Moreover, spring means plenty of entertainment that will get you up and active: barbecues, fairs, gardening, the list is practically endless. Do not miss out on this beautiful spring by staying inside and working the whole time. A change of scenery can bring new ideas and replenish energy. Moreover, it will be beneficial later on when you return to your work.

If you find yourself procrastinating, feeling anxious, or in need of a change of scenery, go outside and replenish your soul! The regenerative energy of spring is sure to cure winter blues. So, if you find yourself desperate for a break during finals season, consider an outdoor adventure!

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.

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.
