10 Signs You Can’t Get Back To College Fast Enough

When you actually miss going to school.

10 Signs You Can’t Get Back To College Fast Enough

College—you may be eating questionable dining hall food, wearing flip flops in the shower, and stressing over classes, but despite that all you think about it going back. It is not that you have not missed your family and hometown, but you miss what college life has to offer just a tad more. You love home, but college is your home, too.

1. You’ve had a countdown of days until you go back since you’ve been home

Only three months, five days, thirteen hours, fifty-seven minutes, and thirty-six seconds until move-in day.

2. You talk to your college friends every day

The texts, snapchats, and group me’s are always lighting up, and weekly group video calls are a must.

3. And you cannot wait to see them again

Especially if they are hours away from your hometown.

4. You are already making plans for the upcoming semester

Monday through Friday…booked!

5. You reminisce about the last year

Those late night food runs and spontaneous outings that you regretted the next day.

6. You are already preparing for the next semester classes

They may be a lot of work, but at least some of the classes are fun and interesting. Right?

7. And all you can do is talk about your college life so much that everyone gets annoyed with you

To the point where your friends from your hometown feel like they know them personally.

8. You are already bored living at home

Work sucks, you have binge-watched all your Netflix shows, and you have exhausted every activity in your hometown.

9. You miss the college life perks

Declining dollars and no parents to hover over every little thing you do.

10. You simply cannot wait for it to be August already

How many days of summer are left?

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.
