Why You Should Travel The World

Catch the travel bug! Believe me, it's the only sickness you are ever going to want.

Why You Should Travel The World

Ever wonder if and why you should take the time and money to travel the world and see new places? The answer is yes and here are the list of reasons why you should:

1. You learn about a different culture.

Why not go to another country where they speak a different language, follow a different religion, and believe in different values. Learn how other people live and why they live the way they do.

2. You get to jump out of your comfort zone.

When you travel the world, you learn a lot about yourself. You are forced into a new situation; you are in a new place, with a different culture, social norms, food, and activities. Everything is new and exciting but very different from what you are used to. Enjoy it! Learn something new about yourself and those you are traveling with. Learn to be crazy, spontaneous, adventurous. Take a leap of faith to explore a new side of yourself and see if you like it.

3. You realize how small you are in this big, wide world.

Traveling brings you perspective. It reminds you of how insignificant your GPA or your diamond earrings are. It is a reminder that life goes on after the boy of your dreams breaks up with you and that failing to get your dream job won’t kill you. It will show you what really matters in this world.

4. Don’t believe the stereotype of study abroad.

Yes, it is a time to have fun and meet new people, but it isn’t always a party. It’s an educational experience where you are not only learning about the country, but you are also learning about yourself. If you’re given the chance to go on a study abroad, take it and run. It’ll be a life changer.

5. You make the most amazing memories with the people you travel with.

The memories you make abroad are ones that you will keep forever and will look back on constantly.

6. You get to see some of the most amazing things all over the world.

You can’t do that by sitting on your couch, Googleing random places. You can’t completely comprehend the beauty of this world without seeing it for yourself.

7. You realize how great it is to go home.

Travel is great, but there really is no place like home. Traveling abroad reminds you how much you love to be at home, with those you love surrounding you.

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.
