Visit A Waterfall – My Visit To Tinker Falls
Chandler Burke

Yesterday was exhausting but beautiful. My roommate and I had a brand shoot to do so we decided to go to Tinker Falls, unaware that it would likely become our go-to hiking spot. In the morning we ate some breakfast and then got in the car at around 9 a.m. for a thirty-minute drive to Tinker Falls.

With two weekends in-a-row going to some sort of falls, like last weekend we went to Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada, we were excited to see what the waterfall would be like at Tinker Falls. If you are from around Syracuse, New York, or are visiting and looking for a very photogenic hiking spot, head to Truxton, New York, where these falls reside.

When we arrived we immediately headed towards the large waterfall and were mind-blown. The pictures online were pretty, but after seeing it in person we were both amazed. Half of the water was frozen over while half of it was flowing perfectly, which made for amazing shots for the partnership I was doing, but also for beautiful and peaceful scenery to just stand and watch.

I decided to hike up the extremely steep mountain, one that I would only recommend hiking in the summer, to view the falls from even closer. It was beautiful, but if you are afraid of heights, like my roommate, I would not suggest hiking up it. It was also very slippery due to the weather recently, so I quickly found myself making my way down in fear of slipping.

After many pictures and soaked feet from walking across the water to get to the side closer to the waterfall, we decided to hike the trail which led to the edge of the waterfall where you could see it from the top—which was very interesting. The view from the top was gorgeous, and I wanted to stay and watch the falls from there all day.

We luckily went on a beautiful, warm day, which made being in the woods in the spring more bearable. After our hike, we got into the car and both admitted that we would be back very soon. Once again, if you are in the area, definitely make the trip. If not, go to your nearby waterfall—it is extremely peaceful and a slight distraction from the crazy semester it has been.

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

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.
