10 Phases Of Senioritis: As Told By 'Parks And Rec'

For all the seniors out there.

10 Phases Of Senioritis: As Told By 'Parks And Rec'

I've almost gone through my senior year, and finally have come to understand the stages of senioritis.

1. Senior year has started and you can't believe you're so close to actually graduating.

2. It's syllabus week and reality slaps you in the face when you realize this year isn't going to be as easy as you thought.

3. Fall midterms roll around and you start to question if you even need to go to class.

4. Next comes spring semester and your excitement rises, but so does your lack of motivation.

5. The fifth phase is the "should I even get out of bed" phase.

6. And when you do get out of bed you roll into class wearing PJs or even the clothes you wore yesterday.

7. The next phase is realizing that an extra hour of sleep just might be more important than making it to your 8am class.

8. Then you realize the saying "Cs get degrees" is no longer just a saying.

9. It's two weeks before finals and reality hits you in the face again when you realize it's time to kick your butt into gear.

10. The final phrase is feeling the pure excitement of finally walking across the stage with your diploma in hand. You've made it through all the ups and downs of college and made it out on top. Congratulations.

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.
