4 Places to go to this Spring Break

The first semester is nearing an end and already I'm thinking of Spring break. When it comes to Spring break, most college students think of a week in Miami or another tropical paradise but with those vacations come to an expensive price tag. But you can have fun for the week without going broke. Here are 4 destinations to take the stress away.

1. Cuba

If you want to hot-weather and beaches this is the place for you. You'll be taken back in time to a different time period with classic cars from the 1950s in Old Havana and bright beautiful architecture. And you don't have to worry about going over budget. Airbnbs can go for about $40 a night. Airfare is also very affordable. If you love cigars, salsa dancing, and art, this is the spot for you.

2. Montreal

If you like road tripping with friends, make Montreal, Canada the place to go. Driving with friends already saves you money versus flying. Eating out also doesn't have to cost you a ton and many art museums offer free admission. And if you enjoy cathedrals be sure to visit the Basilique Notre-Dame.

3. Portugal

If you're looking to travel to Europe check out Lisbon, Portugal. Whether it's amazing architecture, a long history, and great cuisine, Portugal has it all. You can get a city pass for about 19 euros that give you free admission to museums, monasteries, and even transportation.

4. St. Petersburg, Russia

This definitely isn't a destination most people think of to vacation at but there's so much to do here that a week might not even be enough. St. Petersburg is rich in history and the city reflects it. Walk down the central road and you'll pass by beautiful buildings and architecture. And if you love museums, there's no shortage of them.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
