10 Signs that You are Ready to go Back to School

10 Signs that You are Ready to go Back to School
Red Alert Politics

With internships and summer jobs winding down, there are only mere weeks left before the school year begins. Unlike when we were in high school and we dreaded the first day of a new school year, most of us have been counting down the days until college move in since we moved out. Here are 10 signs that you are ready to go back to school.

1. You’ve started to treat your younger siblings like pledges because you can’t wait for recruitment to start. 

2. You started packing even though you don’t leave for another three weeks. 

3. Everyone in your group text is already planning the first-night-back pregame. Who is getting the chaser? Where are we pregaming? What frat do we want to go to first? 

4. You miss tailgating so much that you start making excuses to do it. Family barbecues, lunch with your friends or Grandma’s birthday. Nothing says Happy 80th Granny like shot-gunning a beer with her.

5. You fill up large Ziploc bags with expensive wine so you can slap the bag.

6. You chug your parents' Grey Goose from the bottle, pretend it’s the really cheap vodka you drink at school and chase it with a sugary orange soda, also straight from the bottle.

7. At the slightest sound of music, you immediately find the nearest elevated surface to dance on.  

8. You miss doing walks of shame (or strides of pride).

9. You really miss getting hyped for your school’s sports, so you go to your little siblings’ games dressed head-to-toe in their colors and scream at the 10-year-olds. 

10. You have already started to text last semester's hook up so you can lock down a guaranteed welcome-back-to-college hookup.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
