5 things people with summer birthdays understand

Well it is that tine of the year! Summer is here, which means pool parties ensue everywhere! Here are the summer birthday pros and cons!

1. That end of the school year summer birthday celebration

Preschool. Probably in June, with all the other summer birthdays.

This BS, yet dope day at the end of the year made you annoyed that you had to share the spotlight at school, but also there were so many cakes and goodies that you didn't mind.

2. If you have a Pool you are most likely having a pool party.

That's me at my 13th Birthday, Front and center with a glow stick around my neck

I'm 18 almost 19. About 5 of my birthday party's involved my pool and a cookie cake. Not that I'm complaining or anything.

3. Most of your friends may be on vacation when your actual Birthday comes around

THIS WAS LAST YEAR! Even I was on vacation on my birthday.

Brooke Rosenblum

I planned my sweet sixteen in September ( my birthday is August 10th), at the beginning of the school year, because I knew everyone would be home.

4. On the other hand all your friends aren't in school or doing Homework so a party is always on the table

Brooke Rosenblum

Those pool party's I mentioned always came in clutch especially when your friends were around to have a good time.

5. Lastly, You are one of the younger people.

That means you are the last to drive, vote, drink, and so many other things that I can't even think of. It Sucks most of the time but, honestly I didn't really mind having to get rides or waiting in that under 21 line at toads.

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.
