The Unpredictability Of Spring As Told By Disney

Spring in Virginia is about as predictable as SIS working properly or a dystopian novel love triangle, which is to say not at all. As I write this, the forecast calls for snow, yet it was over 80 degrees last week. So either climate change is real or Virginia is more temperamental than a girl three cocktails in on rose ceremony night of "The Bachelor" (or both). These irregular weather patterns provide a variety of challenges, which I’m going to describe using only Disney references, because why not.

1. It rains all the time, but never when you think it will

The forecast says rain all day, so you lace up your bean boots, grab your umbrella, and head out, only to find sunshine for hours. Once you put on your cute dress and are ready to soak in a sunny day, however, it starts raining as soon as you're too far from home to turn back for an umbrella.

2. The weather changes so much that layers have become essential

Unfortunately for Lizzie McGuire, pleather jean jackets are no longer in style, so finding fashionable layers can be a struggle. I recommend wearing pink scrunchies with your hoodie like Lizzie's best friend Miranda to elevate your look. Bonus points if you also listen to Aaron Carter on your portable CD player.

3. When the low is 40 but the high is 70...

8:00 a.m.: walk to Starbucks...

12:00 p.m:

Is that the sun? No, it can't be.

3:15 p.m.: walk to class...

4. Allergies

There's nothing quite like pollen everywhere to induce sneezing as soon as you walk past the cute guy in your discussion. If only we could all look as adorable as Dumbo when snot shoots from our noses...

5. Humidity

Before you leave:

10 minutes later:

Even when it's not raining, the sky is essentially a cloud of water existing with the sole purpose of ruining hair.

6. The sun looks warm, but you step outside and it's actually only 40 degrees...

This .gif is especially accurate if you're shivering in a crop top like Jasmine.

7. In-between temperatures

It's not cold. It's not hot. The weather is basically having an existential crisis and you don't know how to handle it.

8. Perfect weather

Some days, though, spring weather cannot be beat, so seize the day and frolic around like a Disney princess (or Zac Efron)!

I think I'll frolic like a Disney princesswith Zac Efron...

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.
