Whether you're driving, flying, sailing, or a combination of the above, traveling can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. However, your trip can only go as good as as bad as your prepare for. Here are a few scenarios we can all relate to:

Starting Your Playlist Weeks In Advance, And While You're At It, Download Your Netflix Favorites, Too


You've gotta have the best road trip songs! If you're not ready, you'll be listening to your parents picks, which almost certainly excludes today's best bops. Plus, with Netflix, the time will just fly by! This is the best excuse for binge-watching out there.

Stopping Too Many Times For Gas and Bathroom Breaks


You may or may not feel this way. As someone who wants to get to their final destination as quickly as possible, this is what frustrates me about traveling in large groups. Someone ALWAYS has to use the bathroom every thirty miles.

Bring On The Road Snacks


This is probably my favorite excuse for eating junk food that I normally wouldn't eat. Except Dunkin Donuts. You can never have too much of that.

Pillows and Blankets Are Everything


It doesn't matter if you're flying or driving. Sleep will be your best friend if you have a long journey ahead of you.

Everyone Will Probably Hate Each Other By The End Of the Day


It's just what happens when you cram people in tight spaces for hours on end.

You'll Start Looking For That One Good Texting Buddy


You know, that person you can easily text back and forth with for five hours, No problem! We've all got one. It's probably your sibling, significant other, or best friend if they're not already in the car with you.

Starting A Pinterest Board For Potential Instagram Posts


Because pics or it didn't happen, right?

What will your next adventure look like? Will you check all of these boxes? Be prepared and embrace every part of the experience!

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.
