Trust Me, You Don't Want To Grow Up

Growing up sucks. It's plain and simple.

Trust Me, You Don't Want To Grow Up
Still Cracking

Growing up is scary, and it will happen whether you are ready for it or not. While it brings lots of joys it also brings lots of things that are not so fun. You get to look forward to being self-sufficient, and having your own family. On the other hand, you are stuck relying on yourself for everything. This is are the top reasons to why growing up really just does plain suck.

1. Bills are never-ending.

Bills will truly become your worst enemy. Just when you think you have enough saved up for something that you get to spend it on things you NEED, like car payments, and utility bills.

2. Filling out your own paperwork at the doctor's office.

It is so confusing and you really just need your parent's help to figure out what some of these crazy terms mean.

3. Your parents are not just in the other room anymore.

Just when you think you have finally figured out how to be independent you come to the realization that you are in fact not okay. You just can't walk into the other room to get a hug from your parents.

4. You have to budget your money.

You have to pay for things you don't want to all the while trying to save up for things that you want.

5. Birthdays are no longer fun after you turn 21.

Once you turn 21 there is nothing to look forward to after that.

6. Freedom is not always a good thing.

You think that being on your own will be all that and a bag of chips, but then at the end of the month when you have $3.45 in your account, you realize differently.

7. Everything seems suddenly so much more expensive.

That candy bar that you used to splurge on and buy....yeah you can't do that anymore.

8. You realize you won't be a professional athlete.

All those people who went to school for sports have to come to the hard conclusion that they will not be a professional athlete.

9. Your body will not let you do everything you want to do.

Face it... you're getting old and your body will hurt in ways that it never has.

10. You finally realize how crappy we treat one another and how we take advantage of the planet.

Humans SUCK. End of discussion.

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.
