10 Things I've Realized After 2 Months Of College
Kymberlin Bush

1. The food is much worse than it was on the Senior Preview Days

It does get better whenever there are parents/high school seniors on campus though.

2. "If tomorrow isn't the due date, today isn't the do date"

It isn't procrastination, just prioritization.

3. Napping culture is stronger than drinking culture

Schedules are made to accommodate naps throughout the week.

4. Letters from home are the best part of the week

An empty UC Box is the most disappointing thing.

5. I can't remember how I woke up before 7 for classes in high school

And also wore something other than leggings, did my makeup, made a lunch.

6. If it's free, you take it.

University gear, candy, buttons, pocket constitutions, pamphlets, etc.

7. If you wore something on Monday, you can wear it again on Tuesday

The people you see on Monday, Wednesday, Friday don't have to know what you do on your Tuesdays and Thursdays.

8. Your room is a lot bigger when you first move in

Laziness and forgetting things at home both contribute to this phenomenon.

9. Professors care less than we do sometimes

We all have our bad days.

10. You will remember to vacuum every weekend, and you still won't do it

The RA is never there when you want to ask for it, someone else always has it checked out.

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.

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.
