Gemini is the sign of the twins, specifically, Castor and Pollux. As an air sign, Gemini's are essentially a "breath of fresh air" or just the opposite, they'll take your breath away. Gemini's are known for having two different personalities that they show to the world. This can come off as fake or flakey to other signs, but Gemini's are just flexible in the way of their personality and interests. They can change their mind at the drop of a hat, so don't take it too personally when they cancel plans. They're characterized by their kind, curious, adaptable, and witty personality.

Gemini's are an extremely social sign. They like to be in the middle of all the action and are described as the life of the party. They may be a little hard to keep up with and likely to talk entirely too much, but the twins just have SO much to say. Gemini's impulsive nature will provide you with some of your craziest-best of all-time memories. They will go along with anything and are never too scared to say no to a dare. They'll talk to anybody about anything. Need a wingman/wingwoman? A Gemini is your go-to.

There's a stigma that Gemini's like to gossip about their issues and everything in general--but what everyone else sees as gossip, Gemini's see as gathering information and sorting out their feelings on a subject. The twins won't agree sometimes, which can make a Gemini super indecisive, so they rely on their friends for advice and will likely reach out to multiple people before making a decision themselves. Gemini's are fiercely loyal and unapologetic, they won't hold their tongue if you're doing something that upsets them or if you're being disloyal to them. It will be hard to fool a Gemini, and they won't hesitate to cut you off with little explanation if you happen to pull something over on them.

Gemini's love, love and connection. They love to show love to others and connect with them, yet have a hard time showing love to themselves or opening up to others. They can take a step into someone else's shoes, and truly care about wanting to help make the world a better place. This air sign tends to see all sides of a situation and will do their best to understand everyone's point of view. As one of the most emotionally intelligent signs, Gemini's can adapt to just about any friend group or situation by reading the energy at that moment.

While there are many good things about the aspects of the Gemini sign, they can also be unreliable and impulsive. Impulsive is good in some situations, but not when you've just gotten paid and spend the entire paycheck on some random thing you see in a store. As if the twins weren't confusing enough, they can also be so indecisive that it makes getting anything done a challenge. They're a little nosy and want to know everything about everyone, and you may want to be careful in sharing secrets with a Gemini that you don't know too well because you never know if it may slip out. With that being said though, they're still loyal to their close friends.

Gemini season puts all of this into full effect, so be a little kinder and a little more cautious with the Gemini's that you know in their season.

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.
