12 Things You Don't Want To Hear When You Come Back From Break

It makes me feel like that picture of Kim K's crying face.

12 Things You Don't Want To Hear When You Come Back From Break
Boston College

Going back to school from a break is tough. Especially after Christmas break. Technically, you should be refreshed and ready to get back to work after such a long time off, but in reality you'll probably never be ready. Going back to reality and the thought of starting work for your classes really just makes us all want to go back to bed for another week. We all know the thought process one goes through when the thought of school comes up, but hearing the following phrases can really make you think your brain is going to explode.

1. "So if you'll look here on the syllabus..."

2. "Are you ready for classes to finally start?"

3. Your roommate immediately starts complaining about anything.

4. "Everyone find a partner in the class and introduce yourself."

5. "All you did was work over break? Didn't you do anything fun?"

6. "From: the Financial Aid Office -- your bill is now available online!"

7. "I know it's only the first week, but your first assignment is due."

8. Someone on Yik Yak forgets we're all in college: "LOL, everyone hope for a snow day tomorrow!"

9. "Can you believe it's already the second semester? The year's almost over!"

10. "For this class I require three textbooks that you have to bring to every single class."

11. "Are you ready to be back? Weren't you sick of being at home?"

12. "Do you have a good schedule this semester?"

Second semester? More like, "When's spring break?"

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.
