Remember when you were in middle school and your parents got you your first iPod touch for Christmas, and now you had a way to text your friends as well as some access to the internet? I don't. I didn't get my first iPhone until I was right about to enter high school, but what I did have was a little, blue iPod shuffle. I had a very limited song selection on this tiny iPod, most of which were show tunes.

However, while my bus driver would play the local radio station, I would be listening for some new songs to add to my collection next time someone gave me an iTunes gift card. In my opinion, the 25 songs I have listed below are some of the greatest hits of my middle school days.

1. "Can't Hold Us" — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

2. "Hey, Soul Sister" — Train

3. "Classic" — MKTO

4. "Clarity" — Zedd, Foxes

5. "Only Girl (In the World)" — Rihanna

6. "Rolling in the Deep" — Adele

7. "We are Young" — fun., Janelle Monáe

8. "Uptown Funk" — Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars

9. "Radioactive" — Imagine Dragons

10. "Call Me Maybe" — Carly Rae Jepsen

11. "Thrift Shop" — Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

12. "Happy" — Pharrell Williams

13. "Riptide" — Vance Joy

14. "I Will Wait" — Mumford & Sons

15. "Titanium" — David Guetta, Sia

16. "Some Nights" — fun.

17. "Give Your Heart a Break" — Demi Lovato

18. "I Won't Give Up" — Jason Mraz

19. "Secrets" — OneRepublic

20. "On The Floor" — Jennifer Lopez

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.
