Why You Should Go to a Concert by Yourself at Least Once
Troye Sivan

This last week, I got to see my favorite artist in concert, and I went by myself. When I tell people that, they think I'm crazy. They think that going to a concert alone is a huge taboo.

People have never understood the pure joy you can get from going to a concert by yourself. People always have to go with a group of friends, or will look at someone alone like they have the plague. But it's an amazing experience. Especially if they are your favorite artist. You are able to take everything in. You are able to memorize the outfit the singer is wearing, the details of the stage and every dance move performed. You are able to scream at the top of your lungs without anyone caring or singing as loud as you want. You are able to dance and move around with out a care in the world. You can get lost in the music alone. You are allowed to cry or just stand there in awe.

For me, at first it was a scary experience, I had to awkwardly wait and play on my phone while I waited for the show to start. Conversations were happening all around me and I kinda felt left out, even though I didn't know any of these people. By the end of the night, I didn't care, I was lost in the lyrics of the songs being sung and I didn't care about what other people were doing.

So this is an encouragement to try and go to a concert alone. It may be scary, but I guarantee that it will be an awesome time.

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.
