Traveling Can Open Up Perspectives That Everyday Communities Don’t Have The Ability To Open

This globe is packed with boundless cultures, religion, people, and landmarks that are yet to be found and learned by individuals opening up their world views.

People speak on social media every day about problems that go around the globe. They never visited the site themselves, though. Traveling to distinct states and nations show the distinction in societies, individuals, and living standards from what an individual is exposed to every day. This may be simple to tell, but when you actually travel, it is certainly difficult to live through. This globe is packed with boundless cultures, religion, people, and landmarks that are yet to be found and learned by individuals opening up their world views.

While I was visiting Pakistan in the spring of 2019, I discovered that my life in America was truly blessed and that I took it for granted. On my journey to Pakistan, I flew from Atlanta to Doha. I had a 3-hour stay in Doha where everything was totally new and fresh, even the airport was totally high-tech. I could smell the stench that came from their aircraft as quickly as I got into the plane for Pakistan. The planes were half the size of the planes in the US and the food was in smaller trays that didn't smell as one would think.

As individuals in America complain about the food on the plane and the congested aircraft, I discovered that everything was taken for granted. Pakistan's way of life is entirely distinct from America. Both of them can not be contrasted unless I am adapted in both locations to the lifestyle. Not everybody in the globe has the resources and technology we do, which can be learned not from going to a lower-class nation, but also from a greater nation.

My parents and I go on a family journey to Canada every year. The communities and towns differ greatly from those in which I reside. You understand that every nation has its way of living when you experience and see fresh worlds and that it opens up a view in your mind that shows you that not everyone is the same. There are infinite options in this globe and you have the option to live in any kind of society, community or city you want, and traveling demonstrates the beauty of everything.

Traveling not only depicts distinct communities, but also this globe's beauty. Visiting distinguishable nations demonstrates the unique glorious architecture produced by distinct people and demonstrates the peculiar natural beauty in each nation. People are willing to open up their opinions on distinct cultures instead of being always biased towards their own. They can learn more about other people in the globe instead of just having a knowledge of their own culture.

People can really learn about the diversity of this world and learn more about religion, cultures and the different natural beauty they still need to see. Everyday societies have comparable cultures and events that do not represent this globe's real diversity. Traveling allows people to see and learn this variety. Learning this enables people to understand more about this globe, not just about their society.

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.
