What Did Students Read in 2020?

I asked some some students their favorite book they read this year. Some were intense, others were fun adventures.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

"It reflects our society so well. It's so clearly dystopian, and we consider it extreme, but it is near exactly the themes present in our society today. It's almost like watching history repeat itself."

Baseball Dads by Matthew S. Hiley

"I'm only 3 chapters in. But it's very fun cause it reminds me of my dad. When I was in little league this was exactly how it was .It brings a lot back from my childhood cause I was in little league for 8 years."

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

"I was recommended this book a long time ago and told it was like Harry Potter but so much better. I love stories about magic and knew I would fall in love with the characters. The world Rainbow Rowell has built is so intricate and intriguing."

The 5 people You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

"It was really good. It was kind of sad but the main thing was that he was making peace with everyone in his past. Our teacher had us read it. It's not usually what I would read; it was really deep."

The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi

"I really like the sci-fi and the graphic novel style of the book. In between the chapters, the characters will go to a new place and the scene will be there illustrated. It's about a girl who thinks she's the only person left on earth, but in her world, people live underground in these fancy modern homes."

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.

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.
