11 Things To Do Before Spring Semester

It's only a few short weeks away, spring semester! I'm sure everyone is looking forward to packing all those Christmas presents and heading back to campus. So, before the stress begins, yet again, get out there and enjoy the rest of your break.

1. Hang out with that one friend you only talk to during break.

It's important, you will have fun, and maybe you'll find out some dirty gossip about that one girl from high school.

2. Go out one last time.

Gather up the crew and hit the bars one more time before everyone goes their separate ways for another semester.

3. Go to your favorite restaurant.

I always do this one the day before I leave, but trust me, every single calorie is worth it, I promise!

4. Spend time with your family.

Regardless of if it's just Mom and Dad, or all the siblings (and their dogs), stay home for a night with them. They miss you, more than you know when you're away.

5. Relax for an entire day.

Don't plan anything. Do whatever it is you do to relax. Take a bath, go for a run, or just watch Netflix all day long. Take one last day to yourself before heading back to the chaos.

6. Go on an adventure.

Great falls, DC, or wherever the road takes you. Find a friend. Get in the car and just go!

7. Go see that movie that looks oh so good!

Even if it's "Star Wars," go see it. Maybe if you take your mom, she'll even pay.

8. Make your list of everything you need to take back.

Spring break is a long way away, so don't forget that top you love.

9. Buy the things you need to make spring semester the best semester yet!

Notebooks, books, pens, and those adorable shoes.

10. Laundry

Just do it because its free, plus sometimes Mom folds it!

11. Take it all in.

Some are going back for their last semesters, others for their first spring semester. Regardless, school is just not the same as home, and even if you never admit it, it's always nice to be home.

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.

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.
