Ah, Spring. The temperatures are rising, the waters are getting warmer, and the days are getting longer. Spring is such a great time of year and everyone is itching to go out and do something before summer really brings in the heat. Here are some things to do during the famous and glorious week off, known as Spring Break:

Go to the beach.

It wouldn't be Spring Break without a wild beach trip with the crew. Grab your best buddies, rent a house or apartment at the beach, and soak up those sun rays. Just not too much. You don't want to get sunburnt before Summer starts.

Go to the mountains.

Switch it up and go somewhere cold. Find a nice cozy ski resort or borrow a distant relative's cabin for the week and have some snowy adventures.

Spend time with your family.

You may not want to go to the far edges of the Earth for Spring Break. You may just want to stay close to your roots. Whether you're chatting with your parents over dinner or playing board games with your siblings, having family time is always revitalizing.


Nobody seems to like road trips anymore and I don't understand why. Open road, friends, upbeat songs to sing your lungs out too, and the excitement building as you approach your destination. Who could complain about that? Plus, if things do happen to go wrong, it sure makes for a great story.

Visit historical sites.

If parties and trips aren't really your thing, look up some historical sites around your area and delve into the past. You'll learn a thing or two, get a nice walk, and see some beautiful sites. It's a very relaxing alternative.

Catch up with friends.

Visit those friends you haven't seen in ages. Go to a movie or go grab a coffee and talk about all that's happened recently and laugh about things of the past.

Go on a hike.

Week long adventures may not be your thing so get outdoors for a little while and go on a relaxing hike. Nature is good for you.

Just rest.

College is grueling. Catch up on some sleep, eat some good food, and just rest. Don't feel like you're wasting your Spring Break if you just stay at home all week. It's very healing and will leave you feeling revitalized before finals.

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.

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.
