You Guys Are The Real MVP

15 Things I Need To Thank My Roommates For
"True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island... to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing."

I've been blessed this year to get amazing roommates and an "adopted" one too. College would not be the same without these gems. That being said, I don't give these girls enough credit. They're here for me 24/7 and while we constantly bicker, we always find a way to make it through. Here are fifteen things I definitely have to thank them for.

1. Listening to my heated rants

Sometimes it's midnight rants about genetically-modified foods, other nights it's boys and other everything between.

2. Staying up until early morning hours to be my moral support.

We all hunker down and drink coffee and bond over mutual hatred for homework.

3. Being the Duff in my selfies when I'm trying to look good

There's nothing to lose when your friend has a crush on a guy, so why not make her look best?

4. Being available when I lock myself out of our dorm

The key is usually on my desk... You guys are the real MVP.

5.Not judging me on my taste of music

Even when you really don't understand it.

6. Not hating me for turning every light on when I get ready in the morning

My morning person and your morning person don't get along, but you still love me.

7. Being my moral support when I replay every aspect of the conversation between me and a boy

Whether I've actually talked to the boy or not there might be something to overthink.

8. Reading into things just to make me feel better

"He touched your arm on the way to the Rot, it's almost ring by spring!"

9. Keeping the room neat - when I forget

Room check reps would cost me a fortune if it wasn't for you guys.

10.Being my Personal Stylist

"You can totally pull off red lipstick, plaid and checker does NOT go together, don't wear those shoes with those pants. What is that eyeshadow?"

11.Late night Walmart runs because I'm hungry

FOOD and a college budget don't go well together.

12. Morning Teeth and Toothpaste checks

"Do I have anything on my face?"

13. Eating lunch with me so I'm not alone

The Rot is a scary place without friends.

14. Not telling me "I told you so"

I usually deserve an " I told you so", but you guys don't say it.

15. Laughing with me

You guys are the best roommates a girl could ask for. Thank you for laughing with me, listening to me, and enjoying college with me.

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.
