Start Your Summer Bucket List Early!

As college students, we break for the summer way earlier than anyone else! School's out and we're ready for summer...even though the weather has been less than perfect. To get into the swing of things, and leave behind spring, here are a few things you can check off of your summer bucket list early.

1. Head to a concert with friends.

Whether it's one you've been looking forward to for months or if it's just a local band, it'd make a fun night out! Pull out those cute summer clothes and get a group together for a memorable start to the summer.

2. Take a trip to all that there is at Jordan's Furniture.

Bean Town, Fuddruckers, IMAX movies, what's not to love about going to Jordan's?! You can hit all of these fun activities in just one building so why not go and even pick out your future dining room table in the process!

3. Go to that hot yoga class you've been saying you'll go to someday.

It kicks your butt, but that's the point! Make sure you hydrate throughout the day and bring a towel to this toasty class, it's worth going and being able to say you did!

4. Face your fears and go indoor rock climbing.

For those of you who are afraid of heights, fear not, indoor rock climbing is totally safe, and fun! There's nothing better than making it to the top and conquering a fear while you're at it.

5. Visit an aquarium or a museum you haven't been to in a while.

There are tons of wonderful museums you can visit in the Boston area and it's the perfect trip for a rainy spring day! If it's too chilly to hit the beach, go and visit the New England Aquarium, it's the perfect way to see what's under the water without facing the cold.

6. Take a scenic drive to Hampton Beach.

Hampton Beach is always an excellent spot in the summer, but it's an awesome trip for a spring day as well! Take a scenic drive along the coast, or grab a jacket and take a walk down the beach, maybe you can even snap an Instagram pic at the wall!

7. Enjoy a date in Portsmouth, NH

Along the Hampton Beach, New Hampshire is home to many scenic spots, including Portsmouth. Always my favorite for a day spent eating ice cream and lunching on a deck, Portsmouth is the perfect date spot. Enjoy the beautiful view and the lovely shops around town while spending quality time with that special someone!

8. Spend an evening at Salem Willows Arcade.

Close to home and wicked fun! Salem Willows isn't just a summer hangout spot, there can be tons of fun found anytime, and a gorgeous sunset! Hit the arcade for a blast to the past and win some awesome prizes.

9. Play a few games at The Castle.

The Castle is Beverly's own Board Game Cafe! Great for any day or night, this unique cafe will let you play games all day long, while enjoying great food and drink! Whether you're in it for Apples to Apples or for something more complex, it's a great spot to hang and reconnect with friends or family.

10. Go for a day in Boston

With Boston only a short commute away, it's absolutely to take advantage of all this beautiful city offers. Make a day of it and get to know your city a little better!

Summer may feel like a few weeks away, but it's closer than you think! Better get started on checking off items on your summer bucket list!

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.
