10 Things Everyone Should Laugh About
Kara Lehr

Laughing is my favorite pastime. I'm convinced if I laugh enough maybe I'll earn a set of pretty abs. Honestly, sometimes you have to look at your life and your awkwardness and your willingness to be yourself and just have a throw-your-head-back (*head hits wall*) giggling moment. Here's a few things that make me laugh on a daily basis:

1. When Netflix asks if I'm still watching

Classic. There should be an option in settings where you can turn that biz off. Unless I get hit with a brick of cheese, duh, I'm still watching.

2. When my parents text me "What are you doing tonight?"

My mom always bribes me to come home. She'll deny it, but she does, and it's cute and makes me smile. "I made mashed potatoes for dinner" or "I can pick you up a coffee" usually does the trick. What really gives me the belly laugh is when they both text me at the same time, on a Friday night, at 11 o'clock. Yep.

3. When people say "Hello"

Even if you're not talking to me, I'll sing it back at ya.

"It's me."

4. When I check the time

Whether it's sleeping through my alarm, trying to finish that last episode of "New Girl," jamming for too long on Spotify or eating seconds at dinner—I guffaw because running late is a staple for me.

5. When someone pokes me on Facebook

There's something about being poked on Facebook that makes you feel extra special, but also slightly creeped out. Amirite?

6. When I wave at someone who's not waving at me

I am Ron Weasley (R U?!). Definitive.

7. When Spotify puts weird songs on my Discover Weekly playlist

Every week, without a fail, I get a cover song from a "The Voice" contestant from three years ago. I mean, power to them, but I can only take so much of "FourFiveSeconds." I laugh.

8. When I just fall

Picture this: a girl walking down the stairs and slipping on a banana peel. It actually happened.

9. When I see any furry animal

I'm the person who asks every stranger if I can pet their dog. One time, I saw someone walking their cat—I cuddled that furry thaaang, too.

10. When I see my friends in a public place

Don't you just love looking through restaurant windows and seeing someone you know so you hit glass repeatedly and wave hello? I know I do.

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.

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.
