The Magic (Not) School Bus

It’s Friday morning and your 11 a.m., second semester, senior year, last core credit class is quickly approaching. You definitely don’t regret going downtown last night, but maybe coming home at 4 a.m. wasn’t the best idea. Instead of your whole day and GPA possibly being ruined from missing roll call in an upper-division class, Austin has recently introduced the answer to your poorly constructed prayers. The Rolling Revival Bus is a new-to-Austin business that travels around the city curing hangovers in under an hour.
The concept of a hangover bus originated in Las Vegas, catering to celebrities, socialites and grooms to renew headache-ridden hotel guests. Austin’s Rolling Revival is similar to Vegas’ Hangover Heaven. Ranging in price from $20 to $119. Their services vary from B12 shots to different combinations of saline IVs, headache and nausea medications and vitamins. The company will even provide a ride from your apartment or house if you can’t fathom the idea of leaving your bed.
The most prominent concern for the bus is its safety. While the bus is not required to have a medical license, it does have one medical and, occasionally, needs permits to park at certain locations in Austin. Medical professionals have observed their procedures and claim that they don’t differ from hospital emergency rooms.
Perhaps this business model is a bit dramatic for something Gatorade, Advil and P. Terry’s usually fixes, but hiring them for a private party would be an awesome post-21 birthday gift.

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.
