To Girls With Curly Hair

To all you girls with curly hair: I feel your pain! The way to describe our crazy curls is most simply: a struggle. We will never know what it is like to wake up in the morning and be able to walk out the door. We will never know the satisfaction of running our fingers through our hair. What we will know is what is like to get complimented on our hair and then listen to a long story about how they wished they had our hair. Don't get me wrong, I think curls are beautiful, but sometime we need a break. This is for all you girls that know the continued struggle of seriously curly hair.

1. You Wake Up In The Morning To Something That Cannot Be Identified As Hair But Rather As A Ball Of Frizz.

The unfortunate truth comes out.

2. People Compliment You, Because They Think It Is Beautiful, But Little Do They Know The Ugly Truth.

Thank you! You do not understand the measures it took to get to this point.

3. People Always Ask You Why You Don't Leave Your Hair Down Naturally.

Girls with curly hair do not have that privilege.

4. People Also Tell You How Much They Want To Straighten Your Hair, But You Should Only Let Them Do This If They Are Your Worst Enemy.

Do you have 3 hours to spare?

5. You Hear This Quite Often: "I Wish I Had Your Hair. You Are So Lucky."

It is not as fun as it looks. It may look full of energy, but my arm after brushing it sure does "knot."

6. You Also Hear This: "Is That Your Natural Hair?"

Girl, do you think I would try to make my hair look like this?

7. Wanting To Throw Your Hair Up Into A PonyTail, But Knowing That It Won't Work Out As Planned.

Who knew finding a hair style for sport's practice would be so difficult.

8. Girls With One Wave In Their Hair Consider Themselves Curly Headed, And All You Can Do is Laugh.

You don't even know the half of it!

9. Your Hair Is Impossible To Brush When It Is Dry.

This is not possible in any way, shape or form.

10. You Know You Will Go Through At Least A Bottle Of HairSpray A Week.

*wonders how many living things I'm killing with this aerosol can*

11. You Secretly Love It.

At the end of the day you look at your curls and think, "wow maybe I am lucky!" Each curl makes us perfectly unique.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
