You Should Be Writing In A Diary No Matter Who You Are

You're not "too old".

You Should Be Writing In A Diary No Matter Who You Are

Writing isn't exactly everybody's thing. However, writing about your day should be. The more adult version of a diary would be a "journal". Diary-keeping, journal-keeping, whatever you want to call it, should be in everyone's daily routine. You may ask why, but the answer is pretty obvious: it's good for you!

How exactly is keeping a diary good for you? It gives you a way to talk about your problems. We all have day-to-day problems, whether they're big or small. You shouldn't keep anything bottled up, no matter the issue. Telling someone about said problems may not always be the comfortable option. Although writing them out in a notebook of your choice can be. Essentially, you would write in a diary everyday. Not everyone has time for that or remembers. If you do remember, though, make sure you do it! It has the potential to make you feel so much better. It's a great way to end the night, or maybe even start your morning.

You can pretty much keep whatever you want in it. Maybe it's gossip, what you ate today, or something about your significant other. You don't only have to write your problems in it. It's, honestly, whatever you want! You can even look back at older entries to see how you were feeling a certain day. They are more than just something you write your thoughts in, they're also just a lot of fun!

It may seem quite childish. Keeping a diary is totally a elementary school girl thing. Except, it's really not! I suppose "keeping a diary" is a little off putting for some people. However, that's what it is! I know that's what I call mine. If you want to call it "journaling" then so be it! We are all different and prefer certain things. Something we all have in common though are thoughts, thoughts that need to be shared with another person or yourself.

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.
