For the College Kids Who Left Their Hearts in Jup

Why did I ever leave.

I could not wait to get out of small-town Jupiter, FL and into the high-energy D.C. lifestyle...It's only November, I have already been home once, and I am counting down the days until I get to go back. It's not hard to miss our little piece of paradise, and here's why:

1. Our beaches.

We have THE perfect sand. It's not too hard, but it's not too soft, either. It's just right. Bonus: Juno Pier is always lit.

2. Our lighthouse (also lit...because, lighthouse).

As if Soul Cycle is the new exercise trend. Walking up the lighthouse to be met with that view is the stuff exercise junkies dream of. The views from the A1A and US1 bridges aren't all that bad either. #ViewsFromTheBridge

3. Our Instagram pics.

You've spent hours perfecting your pose on the Love Street hammock, don't lie. And of course, there's always the perfectly-placed 3 Natives açai bowl/Annie's Ice/Seven Eleven icee on the towel at the beach. There's also this:

And this:

Ok, I'll stop now. Wait one more:

Brb changing my desktop screensaver.

4. Our beaches...at night.

Seriously, nothing is more relaxing than seeing a full moon on the water featuring the waves as your own white noise machine. #Shower49

5. Jupiter Island.

Don't act like you haven't driven through here blasting your music with the top down to feel like an old Hollywood movie star. We all know you have. And we've all secretly done it, too...


This one's for all of you who moved out of state and are now realizing how weird and potentially overpriced other grocery stores are (D.C. is expensive and the names are weird). Publix is pricier than Walmart and always crowded (but let's be real, the parking lot of Walmart is where dreams go to die), but you brave it anyway to get your PubSub. And you're always craving Publix sweet tea. TBH I had to leave some clothes at home to make room in my suitcase for Publix chocolate chip cookies. #ThugLyfe

7. The Gardens Mall.

Ok, so this is in Palm Beach Gardens, but it's the only mall we have! You're a master at knowing which side you want depending on your mood...or your wallet. And be honest, you've also been to Cobb Downtown at the Gardens way more than the Jupiter Cobb...don't lie.

8. Harbourside Place.

Lol just kidding, no one cares.

9. Riverbend Park.

The bike rides :') The deer :') The picnics :') The fear of stepping on a water moccasin :')

(Shout out to Jupiter Farms, aye!)

10. The Weird Sh*t.

Seriously, what even is this. #JustJupThings

11. The Holes in the Wall.

Dune Dog and Jupiter Donut Factory. Need I say more. P.S. Dune Dog is the place to go if you want to snap a pic with Celine Dion. I sat across from her once and my life will never be the same.

P.S. *You deserve a donut*

12. The Celeb Appearances.

Speaking of Celine, Jupiter is a breeding ground for plenty of A-listers (thanks, Jupiter Island). Just this past summer, Ashley Benson came to visit, and it was a pretty big deal. Plus, there's the Honda Classic...in PBG, but still. And not to mention, American Horror Story season 4 was set in Jup, so we're basically famous now. Celebrities just can't resist the beauty of our little chunk of paradise, and tbh, neither can we!

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.
