Cereal bowl and no sunscreen? Yikes.

These are some things I'll never ever do again:

1. I’ll never squirt ketchup directly onto my hotdog again without shaking the bottle prior to the squirting.

I could go my whole life without ketchup juice and I’m sure we can all agree.

2. I’ll never grab a hot pan with my bare hands again. I probably will.

4. I’ll never drink Burnetts Vodka.

You're really getting what you pay for when you pay $7 for an entire fifth.

5. I’ll never “test” the expired milk again.

6. I’ll never stay signed onto my Facebook on a friend's computer/phone.

7. I’ll never buy the Family Dollar “single ply” bath tissue.

8. I’ll never procrastinate on a major assignment.

It's something I've had to learn over time but if you turn in crap work you're going to receive a crap grade.

9. I’ll never fight via texting/social media.

Save the drama and don't waste your time.

10. I’ll never drink (2) Monster energy drinks back to back ever again.

There are too many reasons why you shouldn't drink one of these.

11. I’ll never keep someone in my life who treats me horribly.

I refuse to waste time on those who could care less about me.

12. I’ll never buy off brand q-tips.

You can't change those who don't want change.

17. I’ll never go to the Whiskey Barrell again.

Not only because it's terrible but because it's closed for business.

18. I’ll never box-dye my hair. Again, I probably will.

19. I’ll never leave my purse at Tim Hortons.

20. I’ll never leave my purse at Subway.

21. I’ll never leave my purse unattended again.

I'm starting to notice a trend.

22. I’ll never be quiet.

I'm a journalist. It's my job to speak for those who cannot be heard. I refuse to stay silent.

23. I’ll never judge someone based on their appearance.

24. I’ll never watch Wolf Of Wall Street with my dad again.

25. I’ll never care what people think.

It's true when they say life is so much easier when you stop caring so much about what others think about you.

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.
