6 Things To Thank Your Family For Right Now
Baylee Newcomb

Family: you can't live with them and you can't live without them. They're your biggest cheerleaders, a shoulder to cry on, and a friend when you can't seem to find one. They'll always be there, so here's to them.

1. Supporting you.

From going to all your games in high school to encouraging you on your latest exam or telling you to follow your dreams, your family will always be in your corner no matter what happens. They've always got your back, and you'll always have theirs.

2. Their hugs.

No matter how old you are, hugs from your family are the best. It reminds you that everything is going to be OK.

3. Their advice.

Whether you ask for it or not, I can guarantee you're going to get it. Instead of tuning it out, listen. Your parents (or older siblings) have been around a lot longer than you have (surprise), so you might just learn something if you pay attention.

4. Embarrassing you.

I know it's miserable, but they do it because they love you... Well, your parents do. I'm sure your siblings do it to flat out be mean at times if they're anything like mine. Either way, embrace it because everyone's parents do it! And just remember, you'll get to do the same to your kids one day.

5. Providing for you.

Whether they make it obvious or not, your family makes sacrifices for you everyday. Never take anything for granted. And be sure to thank them... A lot. Just because your mom offers to do your laundry doesn't mean she has to, you know.

5. The constant laughs.

Your family can make even the worse day better. Whether it be your dad dancing to music in the car or your mom telling you a story from your childhood, they always know how to make you laugh until your sides hurt.

6. Forgiving and forgetting.

Part of growing up is making mistakes. Your parents don't care what you did. What they are worried about is what you learned from it. And they'll always be there to help you pick up the pieces when you do mess up.

Now, give your parents and siblings a big hug and let them know how much they mean to you, even though they'll probably ask what you're wanting.

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.
