There's Nothing Wrong With Staying In Every Once In A While

Life can be exhausting sometimes and it's nice to just stay in and chill.

There's Nothing Wrong With Staying In Every Once In A While

My second year of college, I began to embrace the mantra of college days and partied. People joke that partying is the main reason people attend college, but I never thought I would be one of those party kids until I discovered the magic of house shows.

However, every once in a while, I just need to stay the heck in, lounge on my couch in my sweats and hang out with my kitten. Life can be exhausting sometimes and it's nice to just stay in and chill.

The last two weekends, I have spent at least one night in and it's been exactly what I needed. This last weekend I ended up cleaning my apartment on Friday night and woke up to a sparkling clean place on Saturday morning without a hangover! Such an amazing feeling.

Just because you're staying in doesn't mean you can't have fun! You could invite some friends over and watch some movies while hanging out. Staying in with a book that I've been dying to read doesn't sound like a horrible way to spend my nights either.

I think my favorite part about deciding to stay in is the ability to do whatever I want to do. I could just watch movies or binge watch a show on Hulu or play some video games. The world of my Friday night is open to whatever activity I want to do to achieve the ultimate level of relaxation.


The true irony of this story is I realized how much I like to stay in once in a while after turning 21. Typically, I feel like most people go HOG wild after turning 21 and drink and smoke a ton that year. I seem to be going the opposite route, but I'm not mad about it at all. I'll be staying in and enjoying a nice bath while reading my fave book instead of getting beer spilled on me at a club.

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.
