It's always a great moment in life when you meet someone with the same name as you. It can be a way of bonding, and even if you're not close, it's always fun to confuse people. Then there's the case of the good friend that has the same first name as you. Now that is always a fun adventure. I now present to you, things that happen when you have a good friend with the same first name as you.

1. If you pronounce your names differently, it's always a slight struggle to explain this to other people. Shoutout to my wrong half, Andrea, and how she pronounces her name.

2. When someone calls out your name, and you both turn around. I swear this happens because I always forget most people don't realize my name is Andrea.

3. Having all the inside jokes relating to your name.

4. Accidentally confusing people when you both have to introduce yourself at the same time, mostly when it comes down to pronunciation as I have noticed.

5. Feeling the exact same struggle when it comes down to finding things with your name on it if your name isn't mad popular. When you do finally find something, you end up buying another one for your same twin.

6. When you reminisce about how you met your name twin, and it all comes down to the fact that you guys share the same first name.

7. They understand the struggles you feel when your name gets pronounced wrong.

8. Making jokes about how you're basically the other person because you share the same name and interests. As someone with a lovely friend that shares the same name as me, I can confirm this does happen.

9. When you explain to other people that you have a friend with the same name, and they just don't get the bond you have and look at you funny when you and your name twin do matching things or are basically the same person.

10. Just having the same name as a good friend in itself is frickin wonderful and fun.

In the end there's just something absolutely awesome about having a good friend that shares the same first name as you. It can lead it hilarious adventures. Honestly having any friends with the same name as you is great, no matter what level of friendship. Bonding through first names is always fun especially when you might not necessarily have the most common name.

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.
