Thank you The River.

I was afraid of the dark when I was a kid, but you guys kept me safe.

Thank you The River.

Think back to 2003, it is 10 pm and you turn on 1075 the river. You hear Butter just talking away about his game called What's Down Butter's britches......... yes, he was my favorite and always will be..... But then fast forward to 2020 and your new favorite is some silly, funny guy named Zac. Radio has changed over the years but a few things will always remain the same....

1. The people behind the mics are real people, with real families and real feelings..... They may work 4-11 or 3-7 but after those hours; sometimes they are dads, moms or even paw fathers.... They have real feelings, and real lives behind those mics, and I am so thankful for that and who they truly are as humans. I use to go to high school with Savannah, and I will always remember her as the sweet soul that I always wanted to be best friends with, but my shy turtle shell lead me down a path of learning the hard way that I had to speak up, but she was always so kind. I Have learned so much from not just Savannah or Zac, but from the Nashville Kings of Comedy..... We can all learn a little something from each and every one who works at 1075, and for that I am forever grateful....

2. They all come from different walks of life, but end up in the same room as one family. It is a beautiful thing, and we should all experience sometime. Coming from different walks of life, and coming together as one gives me chills....... I feel like the world could use a little lesson from radio personalities.... They all come together with different opinions for the morning, but they know how to handle things in a mature adult way, and still somehow have fun...... The world needs more fo that, so I thank you 1075 for that lesson in being a decent human, and knowing that kindness goes a long way for the little acts you do.

3. Even if we do not agree with some of the things they say, we agree that in the moment we turn on that radio we are a way happier person than we were without the radio, so we can thank them for having the job that makes us happy. When they play your favorite jam, and you are stuck in traffic what is better than listening to the radio? Nothing, they make your stop and go traffic ways so mich better. So thank them more often, cause they love what they do yes but it feels nice to be loved.

4. We can all agree that what we think is easy work is not. Being a radio personality might seem easy, but I promise you there is more work than we all think. It may be the dream job, but every dream job has its work cut out for it. I hope everyone realizes what work they put into making us happy when they are the on the air for those couple hours. Cause I applaud them, big time.

1075 has always been my favorite radio station, and will forever hold special memories. I remember when I went to the lobby of the station a long time ago, and kept thinking I feel so cool. Now that Zac and I are best friends due to our share love of being adventourous and he is just the best..... do not worry, he is the best..... I always wanted to write a post saying my thanks to 1075 for putting a smile on my face since the age of 6...... Here is a little secret, I use to fall asleep to 1075 because I felt like it kept me safe...... So here is to 1075 for the countless memories, and for keeping me safe for so long.

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.

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.
