12 Things You Experience Senior Year Of College

Hello, final semester of college! Three point five years down and point five left to go. Prepare yourself for the emotional roller coaster that is your final semester of college. Who better to help explain your impending emotions and experiences than the comforting cast of Parks and Rec.

Embracing Your Senior Swagger

Why yes I am a senior, what are you a freshmen? HA! I see you bought all your textbooks, rookie mistake.


Grades, don't care. Homework, not going to do. Sleep here I come.

Increased Drinking During the Week

When in the adult world are people able to get drunk on a Thursday? or a Tuesday? Or Monday? Better take advantage of this now.

The Hangovers After

I'm going to die, then throw-up. I swear hangovers weren't this bad freshmen year.

The Family Induced Rage

If one more family member asks, 'What are your plans after graduation?' or 'Any job prospects' things are going to get real violent real fast.

Crippling Anxiety About The Future

I don't need college, I can just be a hobo...do hobos get Netflix? Cause as long as I have canned beans and Netflix I'm good.

Small Moments of Excitement

Holy sh*t! No more school ever again! No more teacher who don't speak English, no more homework, no more stress over finals!

Getting Sentimental

Everyone is leaving, forever. I love this campus and this broken vending machine and the stupid sculpture that I walk by.

Being Impressed That You Made It This Far

I could've failed out, but I didn't. I could've become an alcoholic, but I didn't. Go me.

Dying A Little After Looking at Your Student Debt

What kind of drugs was I on when I took out loans!? Is this even legal?

Bullsh*ting Your Way Through Endless Interviews

Please just hire me, I have debt. So much debt!


Ok...Adulting...I can do it...yes! Here I come retirement plans and more complicated taxes!

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.
