From your favorite self-titled bookworm

Top 3 Summer Must-Reads

As a self-titled bookworm, I believe I am a reputable source for summer reading books. I’ve compiled my top three summer must-reads that I’ve already crossed off my checklist, and now you can check them off yours too.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

This romance novel has its cheesy moments for sure, but wraps you into every developing character moment and leaves you wanting more. Main character Lily opens her own floral shop in the city of Boston after escaping a tumultuous childhood of love and abuse. She finds her true love in the city, but is soon faced with his demons. As if that isn’t spicy enough, her first love from aforementioned tumultuous childhood pops up again, bringing up feelings from years ago. This casual read will have you hooked from the first chapter.

IT by Stephen King

I’ll admit, this isn’t exactly “light summer reading” but it is enthralling and the summer gives you plenty of time to read its 1000+ pages. A group of young kids join unlikely forces to not only battle their elementary bullies, but also a deadly force killing the town’s children. There are scary pop-up moments, heartwarming details that emerge from the friend group, and one twisted tale that is gripping from the moment you pick up the book.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

One of my all-time favorite books, this story made my jaw drop multiple times throughout the entire plot. A doctor and his patient are on a journey to unlock the patient’s secret to not speaking for several years. The town and other doctors have their own theories, but this one particular doctor believes he can crack her. Little does she know, he plays a more pivotal piece to her silent story than she knows (yet).

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.
