5 Things To Do Anywhere In The World This Spring Break

Take advantage of your time off.

5 Things To Do Anywhere In The World This Spring Break

The end of the academic year is in sight. Here's how to make the most of one week off, from anywhere in the world.

1. Go outside

Spring is finally here! Get outside and enjoy the sun, or at least crack open your bedroom window. Walk your dog, go for a hike, or just go sit out on the grass, since you finally can. Go to a park and get on the swings. Nobody is ever too old for swings.

2. Get trashed

Saint Patrick's Day is this week. While St. Patrick is technically the patron saint of Ireland and not anybody in a green shirt looking to get wasted, March 17 is still the universal day of getting drunk off your ass. Embrace the holiday. Take a shot. Take a dozen shots. Spend the rest of the night throwing up into a stranger's toilet, as good old St. Patty intended you to.

3. Dye your hair

There is a very small window in your life when you are allowed, to some extent, to have purple hair. Or blue hair or,what the hell, why not both? Take advantage of your youth and your poor decision making skills –– head on down to CVS and pick out the brightest color you can, and then pour some chemicals on your head. You'll love it, but your mom sure won't. More power to ya.

4. Say yes

If someone asks you to do something dumb, absolutely say yes. Haven't you ever wanted to steal a shopping cart or learn how to do a (very bad) kickflip? It doesn't matter if you look like an idiot. It's ending up on your snapchat story anyway.

5. Go for a drive

Get in the car and drive for as long as you can stand to. Make an awful playlist of songs to sing along to as you go. Don't turn on your GPS until you are good and absolutely lost, and pull over for anything that looks even a little bit interesting. Watch the sun set (or rise, if this was a bad idea you had after midnight) in some place you've never been before. Breathe it in.

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.
