5 Reasons Our Family Vacation Home In Maine Will Be One Of My Favorite Places In The World
Dylan Couch

For as long as I can remember, my family and I have been going away to Maine to visit our vacation home and it never gets old! I look at Maine as my second home and I really want to share five reasons why Maine is my home away from home.

1. The memories

I can't remember a time in my life where my family wasn't going to Maine. We've made so many memories with our neighbors and with each other. One of my favorite memories is going on a walk with our neighbors to the Wetlands.

2. Fishing

While spending so much time in Maine, I was able to pick up a new hobby. Fishing has become one of my favorite hobbies especially up in Maine! I was able to go fishing with one of our neighbors and we became fishing buddies. He was such a great fisher and I learned so many great fishing tips from him!

3. Visiting the lakes

Being able to visit all the lakes of Maine is always a fun time and I always enjoy doing it every time we swing by them!

4. The beaches

Maine has so many nice beaches and It's always one of my favorite things to do when we visit. I think anyone from Maine can agree with me that Maine beaches are the best!

5. The small-town feel

I've always enjoyed the atmosphere of Maine, especially for its small-town feel. Very quiet and relaxing... The best place to visit when wanting to have a relaxing vacation.

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.
