6 Rumors That ARE NOT True About Volkswagen Beatles

I drive a 2004 Volkswagen Beatle. For as long as I could remember that was the car I had wanted. When I turned sixteen my parents surprised me with a lime green bug. I was so excited! But when I went back to school, a lot of people were commenting on my car. Some were happy for me, others questioned my parents' sense of judgment as to why they would get me such a car. I got a lot of criticism about the safety of my new ride. Here are a few things people who drive Beatles would like you to know!

1. It's just as safe as any other car! 

Despite it's small size, the Beatles have multiple airbags and safety features. So before you say something to criticize a Volkswagen look up the research.

2. The inside does smell like crayons!

As silly as it sounds, our Crayola colored cars do have a crayon like smell in them.

3. We do sometimes see people punching each other saying "Slug Bug". 

Nothing amuses me more when I pull into a drive through and I see people hitting each other!

4. I do drive it in the winter!

My little green bug isn't just a summer car. I drive it during the winter and I go to and from school and work just fine. Much like any other car, I take my time and are cautious.

5. Despite the small stature of the car, its actually got a decent amount of room. 

For as small as the outside looks, it can comfortably seat 3 extra people.

6. We do wave at other people driving Beatles. 

You could say were the most friendly people on the road!

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.

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.
