Chase the summer sun solo!

You Deserve This Endless Summer

We all come home as summer rolls around. Come back with new plans and ideas to make it the best summer we have ever had. Once we arrive we begin to see that things have changed. Places, people, routines, and us. We have changed in so many ways, we had new experiences through our school year, learning to live and love the college lifestyle while trying to hold on to what we have left back in our hometowns.

Everything seems weird, the people and the places you enjoyed going with them to. We came back ready to dive into all the endless places for summer fun and realize that plans change. We find ourselves confused about what really changed and it's us. We have grown so much and new things and people interests us. But don't you fret! Do not sulk in this summer sadness as the brilliant Lana Del Rey would say. Let's face it: the truth hurts, but we have the opportunity to make this the best summer in our lives. Sounds cliche? Oh well, it's true so let's find that light and shine through this hot summer!

It's okay if your old friends are not interested in the things you are into. That just means you're going to have to fly solo for a bit! Look up to the older role models in your life. Chit chat with them see what ideas they have for you. No one said you couldn't do this on your own.

So, be Miss or Mr. Independent this summer. Take yourself to the beach and soak up some rays. I bet you will find someone at the beach doing just the same as you. Be that social butterfly and spark up a conversation! That's how you meet people, right? You speak to them, learn about their passions and listen to their funny stories from the past. There is always something or someone to learn about. Open up that heart of yours and allow all the love and light to flow through this summer.

We all feel a little lost in the summer, but sometimes we have to get lost to find ourselves. Remember once you start doing the thing you enjoy everything else will fall into place. You will begin to meet people who share the same love for the things you do. You just have to take yourself there. So go catch that summer sun and never let go of it!

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.
