Stay Home During COVID-19

For those of you who are going out for more than just necessities I must say, in the words of our wonderful Governor Northam of Virginia, you are being selfish. Stay. Home!

Don't you want all of this to end? The more you go out, the more likely the virus will spread, and the more likely we will have to remain in lockdown longer. Wear a mask, wash your hands, and maintain social distancing. Do NOT go to the beach, or anywhere!!

No offense to anyone, but the these lockdown protests are stupid! If you want to stay safe, then stay home! And not only are they stupid, they are selfish. You are not thinking of the people around you. Going out and protesting only helps to spread the virus even more. I know you may not care about being on lockdown longer, but the people you are affecting do. Do you think they wanted this to happen? I know you didn't, but do they think they did? By protesting, you are not helping anyone or anything; you are only making it worse!

We all know there are several people working through this pandemic. Essential workers. I am talking about healthcare workers, truck drivers, postal workers, grocery workers, and many more. A bunch of us are probably wanting to do something to thank them, or honor them, or even help them. But I know one thing they all want us to do: stay home. There was something on tv recently showing healthcare workers saying just that: "Stay home for us. That's all we ask."

I'm sure most of us have seen at least a concert live on tv, or maybe even the Jimmy Fallon Show since this pandemic started. If you watch you see that all the musicians, all the stars- Jimmy Fallon included- are in their homes. None of them (or at least most of all) are all dressed up or anything like that, they're all dressed causally in t-shirts and sweats or something- and hanging out with their families. If you watch Jimmy Fallon you see him like this while his two daughters help him run the show. You also see this with the different stars he interviews using Zoom.

All those people are setting an example we should all follow. If they can do it, so can you. They're all also saying the same thing: "Hang in there. We will get through this together."

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.

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.
