Summers at home are all about what you make of them. They may not be filled with all of the excitement that comes along with being at school, but they definitely do have their perks — check out these five tips on ways to take in every last bit of these three months at home.

1. Use this time period as a chance to grow

Summers can be used to do many different things. Whether you have an internship or a 9-5 job Monday through Friday, summer is the perfect opportunity to take some time for yourself and find out new things you haven't really had the chance to while in school. Whether you focus on your health, beauty, or maintaining friendships summer is the perfect time to do it!

2. Take on a new hobby you never knew you needed

This is the perfect time to figure yourself out. Use this time to try out new and different things you couldn't quite make time for while in school. This could potentially open up a million new doors for you and teach you something about yourself you never even knew!

3. Rekindle old friendships

Summer is the time to rekindle those old friendships that were hard to maintain over the school year. This can be used as the perfect opportunity to reconnect those friendships that may have slightly faded during the school year. You never know what may come about this or just how much you never knew you needed that new friendship in your life

4. Unplug from your phone

Summer is also a great time for really living in every single moment. Not saying you should not use your phone at all but definitely a time to be mindful of just how much you're using it. This is the time to put it away and really focus on your day-to-day life. It is amazing how much you can accomplish when you put the phone down for some time

5. Spend time with your family

For those of you that are away at college, and even those of you going to college, summer is the perfect opportunity to spend much needed time with your family. You don't get this chance when you are away at college and it is important to make the most of your time with them when you do get it. I promise you, your older future will thank you later for this one.

So whatever you choose to do with your summer, make sure to incorporate these five tips into it. With one month left, summer is ending faster than it seems. Make sure to make the most of your time at home before you're loaded with work and responsibilities. Don't forget, one day when you're getting ready to move out for good, you'll yearn for these precious times at home. Don't let this summer slip away — it's all in your hands.

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.
