Do you Believe in Karma?

Does karma really exist?

Do you Believe in Karma?

I have always said when you do good things, good things come to you. If you put out negative vibes into the world, the negativity will come back and bite you. Karma is defined as "the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as defining their state in future existences. Karma is considered a Hindu and Buddhism practice although most people use the term karma regularly. I truly do believe in karma. After a bad day or a bad incident I have had, something good usually follows, big or little. The other day I had my $180 headphones stolen which started my rough morning, shortly after I was at Dunkin' Donuts and someone had complimented my shoes and although it was not something huge or life-altering, it did brighten my day. Not all good things happen simultaneously although they do eventually happen. When you treat someone poorly or they have treated you poorly, always remember karma will come back around to you; so it is up to you if you decide to have good karma or bad karma. Doing good things for other people, such as letting someone copy your notes, buying a friend a coffee or even going to a shelter and volunteering your time, it will follow and someone will buy you a coffee or let you copy their notes. Before you decide to pick up a wallet you saw on the subway and pocket it, or snag something in the store, remember that by you doing this, the universe will come back to you and maybe if you drop your wallet, someone will also pocket it. The universe has a strange way of working so make sure all your decisions are carefully thought out before conducting them. In my eyes, karma is very real and whoever has broken your heart, stolen your wallet or wronged you, eventually it will catch up to them and karma will set in. Remember daily to be the best person that you know you can be and the universe will thank you and repay you in more ways that you could imagine.

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.

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.
