Top 5 Most Interesting Locales In The World

These five places will transport you into a new world, without you having to step on a rocket!


We start of with a scene that looks like it could have been pulled from a sci-fi movie. The main novelty of this particular island lies clearly in the trees. Unlike anything most people have seen before, these trees take on a similar appearance to that of mushrooms, equally confusing and a visual treat all together.

Zhangye Danxia Landform

Moving up quickly in scale comes mountains. Mountains that have some of the most vivid colors that can be seen in nature are often the most appreciated, and this one definitely takes the cake. The Zhangye Daxia mountains look artfully colored in with beautiful shades, namely the color blue, which doesn't appear in such landforms often.

Thor's Well

Going in the opposite direction from the mountains, we see a vortex that may have created some of the most beautiful waterfalls that we have ever seen. The circular formation is equal parts beautiful and terrifying, a true embodiment of nature as a whole.

Mount Roraima

This mountain is one of the most jaw-dropping formations that has existed. It feels imposing yet part of the land that surrounds it, and the area around it makes it all the more beautiful. On good days, you'll get an almost unparralleled view down to the ground from dizzying heights, and on great days, the fog rolls in, making you feel like you're soaring above the skies.

Tianzi Mountains

Last but oh so certainly not least, comes a place that looks like it was torn straight out of Avatar's world of Pandora. Jagged spikes of rock jut out from the ground, giving you a mystical aura when combined with fog. Unfortunately, due to keeping the beauty of the place intact, walkways along the spires have not been created, but walkways along the grounds are there for you to witness this unnatural beauty.

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.
