Snow days are the best

Thoughts from a Quiet Corner of Campus on this Blizzard Snow Day

New Englander's are no stranger to snow. Winters in this aera filled with sunny weather one day and a 16 inch blizzard the next. The fluffy falling snow brings serenity and peace. There is nothing better than realizing that Mother Nature has offered you a break from the daily mudance stress of life. The snow traps you inside allowing you to catch up on sleep, contemplate life, read that book you have been meaning to get around to, catch up on work and enjoy doing absolutely nothing. As I am sitting in the study lounge in my dorm, staring out the window overlooking the snow covered campus at Eastern, a few thoughts begin to run through my head.

1. On these stormy winter days, the sun seems brighter as the white glistening snow reflects the sunlight.

This means even on the darkest days, the good things in life will turn up and shine positivity.

2. Even when there is so much school work to catch up on, stress has escaped into the drifts of snow.

Looking out the widow will render you lost after a few moments as your mind goes blank and recanters itself.

3. College kids will do some crazy stuff in blizzards.

This includes traveling across campus in heavy winds for food, sledding down the stairs on laundry baskets and organizaing snow ball fights.

4. Hot chocolate has never tasted as good as it does on these snow days.

I am usually a fan of hot chocolate in the winter, but sipping this hot drink with your hands cupped around the mug for warmth is sweeter when snowflakes are falling.

5. In all the countless flakes that pass by on their desending journery, there are no two exactly the same.

This may not be noticeable to the naked eye, but every small difference sets the snowflakes apart as unique and special.

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.
