Western America may have the Rockies but the Southeast has the Appalachians, Blue Ridge, and Cohutta.

1. Cloudland Canyon State Park 

Cloudland Canyon State Park is truly up in the clouds. This site offers various levels of trails from easy to hard. The West Rim Loop Trail is one of the most used trails. Rounding out near 5 miles the trail gives a wooded forest experience and miles of views off the many overlooks.

2. Tallulah Gorge State Park

Tallulah Gorge State Park is home to Tallulah Falls. Right outside the border of South Carolina, Tallulah Gorge State Park is family friendly and offers year round activities. The stairs are strenuous, but the views are worth it.

3. Fort Mountain State Park

Fort Mountain State Park has an activity area for everyone from horseback riding trails, biking trails, miniature golf, and so much more. Exploring this area you'll see the legend of the Moon People, and the rock wall. This park offers 70 seasonal camping sites, and access to a 17-acre-lake.

4. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is not actually counted as a state park but it is a hot spot for all the outdoors people. This park was once the site of a 14 day bloody Civil War battle. Kennesaw Mountain has a secondary mountain beside it called Little Kennesaw, this site has an overlook that can be driven up to.

5. James H. (Sloppy) Floyd State Park

James H. (Sloppy) Floyd State Park is lies between Summerville and Lyerly, Georgia. There are 5 miles of trails available to the public, along with other activities such as fishing and geocaching. The real prize is at the end of the "Marble Mine Trail" where an old mine is located.

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.

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.
