Self Care Is Important

I know, I know, another post about self care but it is so important.


Now that it's summer, self-care is probably the number one thing right now for girls. Think about it, we all want to look our best for summer, whether it involves working or seeing people from your hometown or just traveling. Everybody has their own things for self-care, ranging from face masks to running.

Personally, I love a good face mask, watching some Netflix, doing my nails, and just relaxing. An everyday thing I love to do for myself is to get a workout in, even if it is a short one. Some girls like to read a book, take a bath, there are just so many things you can do for yourself.

It's so easy to get wrapped up in things, to the point to where you forget to take care of your self. It's okay to take a step back from whatever you're doing and realize, I need to care for myself. It's not good to be stressed out, it's so unhealthy for you and your body. It is also okay to take as many days you need a week to do some self-care, as long as you get your stuff done.

I can't tell you how many times where I have been stressed out, took a break from what I was doing, and just relaxed and did my own thing. I felt so much better and it is always so needed.

Besides face masks, manicures, pedicures, and basically anything beauty related, another thing I like to do for self-care is to just relax and watch a movie. If you're looking for some movie or television recommendations, I recommend Game of Thrones, The Office, Wedding Crashers, and you can never go wrong with a comedy.

Self-care is important to each person, you need to let your body relax. Hopefully, after reading this, you'll go do a face mask!

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.

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.
