12 Things You Should Put On Your Summer Bucket List

There is so much I am going to be doing this summer, and I want you to enjoy it just as much as I will be. Here are some things that you should do or plan to do so you can make the best of your summer!

1. Go canoeing or kayaking.

Go to your nearest business that rents kayaks or canoes with some friends and spend a day on the river. I promise you won't be disappointed!

2. Go hiking.

I know, ew, exercise. But being one with nature and the fresh air is so nice. Even if you live in the city or not so close to mountains, you don't need it. Find some trails!

3. Volunteer

Go volunteer, you will feel like a million bucks, I promise. Go to your nearest homeless shelter, hospital, or even go to your neighbor's house and mow their grass. Do something for someone else. Do it with some friends, it could be fun!

4. Go camping

Grab a few friends or family members and go on a camping trip. Instead of staying in a camper, though, stay in a tent. Get the whole experience.

5. Go to a theme park or carnival.

Tap into your inner child and go ride some roller coasters, Ferris wheels, and other rides. Get that adrenaline pumping.

6. Go fishing.

I don't know about you, but fishing is when I go to my happy place. It's so peaceful to just sit there in the quiet and wait for the bite of the fish. Get your pole and go to your favorite fishing spot.

7. Have a bonfire.

Invite a bunch of friends, turn on some country music, and relax by the fire. Forget about everything for the night, and just be in the moment.

8. Have a movie marathon.

Be a couch potato for one whole day and grab some of your favorite movies. Watch them all day and night long. Don't get up unless you have to go to the bathroom or get more snacks.

9. Read a book or two.

I know during the rest of the months you don't have time to read, but this summer get those books that are collecting dust out. If you are like me, you buy books and never set away time to read them. Now is your time.

10. Go to a concert.

And again, during the rest of the year there is never time for a concert. This summer, make time for that too. You won't regret it. Plus, who doesn't love a concert?

11. Go on a road trip or just cruising.

Pack your car up and just ride on the open road. Stop at any place you want and enjoy your time. Don't have the money for that? Get in your car, roll the windows down and just cruise for an hour or two.

12. Go to a beach.

Whether it's an actual beach by the ocean, or just one by a lake or ocean. Go and enjoy the water and sand. Relax and tan.

Now I think you can do SOME of this. Why not try for all of it? Make the best of this summer and make some memories!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
