10 Items You Absolutely Need In Your Carry-On When Traveling

Packing for trips can be stressful- you never know when you are going to absolutely need something in that exact moment while flying. For those who are true travel enthusiasts, you absolutely cannot forget to pack these 10 important items in your carry-on for a comfortable and stress-free flight!

1. License or passport

Can't travel without em'!

2. Wallet

3. Pair of headphones

Download your favorite Netflix show or music and keep yourself occupied during the long flight!

4. Book or magazine

Whether it is keeping up with pop culture trends in your favorite magazine or following up on your favorite characters in the new hottest book, these will also help you keep yourself busy if music or Netflix shows aren't cutting it for you.

5. Change of clothes or toiletries 

In the case your luggage gets lost (lets hope this truly does not happen), pack a spare change of clothes to have just in case you absolutely need it. This way, you are prepared with a clean new outfit instead of staying in the same old clothes.

6. A sweatshirt or cardigan

Always pack a small sweatshirt or cardigan you can easily throw on if the plane is a little chilly. This way, you can be comfortable during the flight and quickly grab what you need. It is better to have it and need it, than to need it and not have it.

7. Valuables

If it is important with you, than it stays with you. You don't want to run the risk of potentially losing your valuable items in your checked in lugged in the case your suitcase goes missing. Whether it is jewelry, tablets or a special memento, keep it with you in your personal baggage so it never has to leave your side.

8. Snacks, snacks, snacks

Why not bring your own favorite snacks with you in case you get hungry during the flight instead of buying a small bag of pretzels for $15? A better way to save money is to bring your own snacks so you are not spending a significant amount on food before arriving at the destination.

9. Reusable water bottle 

Instead of spending money on endless amounts of water bottles, bring along a reusable bottle to consistently refill once you get to your destination!

10. Tablets

Cell phones, Ipads, Nooks and more, download your favorite book or movie to keep yourself busy during your flight.

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.
