The After-Vacation Vacation

Do you need another vacation after your vacation is over?

We all know that June, July, and August are the prime vacation months. It is the perfect time of the year to take a trip with the family or have a romantic getaway with your significant other because school is no longer in session; the spring semester of college is finally over, and you need to use those vacation days before you lose them. Vacation is something that we all look forward to, but each vacation differs from family to family and person to person. Vacation can mean taking a trip to the beach, or it could mean taking a road trip across the nation. To some, vacation could mean flying to a different country, or it could mean cruising across the ocean. For others, vacation could include a trip to Disney World or a trip to Universal Studios. For one person, vacation could be spending a week at a rodeo or camping in the mountains. A different person might consider a weekend fishing trip to be a vacation. Every person has a different idea as to what the ideal vacation is, and I am not here to argue against that. My point for this article, though, is to urge everyone to actually take a vacation, while on vacation!

It is important to actually take the time to relax while on vacation. I understand that while you are at the beach, you will want to find as many neat seashells as you possibly can, and when you are at an amusement park you will want to visit every single attraction, but it is also important to just sit and relax. How many times have you gone on a vacation, and then once you got home you realized that you needed another vacation so that you could finally relax? My guess is every single time, or if not, too many times! So next time you go on a vacation, I challenge you to schedule some time every day to just sit down and relax. Vacations are meant to be relaxing, refreshing, and fun! Go mini-golfing, snorkeling, hiking, or whatever else you want to do, but also take some time to just sit and relax. Use this time to read a new book, process your day/vacation so far, or just take a nap. I promise you that if you schedule enough time to actually “vacation” on your vacation, you will return home refreshed and not in need of another vacation in order to feel relaxed. Do not skip all of the fun and must-do activities, but definitely schedule yourself some time to actually relax. You will not regret it!

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.
