What pollution really is?

Here is a little background about pollution

What pollution really is?

Pollution. While this may seem like a minimal issue, it is one that affects hundreds of thousands of Americans. The worst thing to do as an American is to sit idle and wait for a solution to arise automatically. There are many precautions we can take right now to make sure that pollution is reduced drastically in society. The first thing we can do to prevent the spread of pollution is to conserve energy. We may not think this is important, but it does help reduce the amount of air pollution that occurs daily. When you are not using your computer or an electrical appliance, make sure to turn it off as this takes up a lot of unnecessary energy.

Another solution to the pollution crisis in society is education. Educating students in schools is not enough, we must also educate environmental companies. Educating the students and environmental companies can go a long way as sometimes not even students are aware of the consequences of pollution. Furthermore, instead of using your car all the time, it may be beneficial to use public transportation if you have liable access to it. This can dramatically reduce carbon emissions. Another great factor to reduce pollution is consolidation. When you can consolidate your trips, this makes for less pollution being emitted. This can also help you save money while saving the environment at the same time.

Many people think that pollution will never stop, however, it is truly the small things that make the biggest difference. Driving safely and being able to conduct your errands in one small trip instead of many will help the environment in grand measures. Next time you think of throwing that piece of trash on the ground, think of the environment and everyone that is affected by it. Taking one step at a time, our Earth becomes brighter, greener, and more environmentally friendly.

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.
