When eating Kalteen Bars seems more appealing than college.

13 Times 'Mean Girls' Perfectly Described Your Feelings About Going Back To School

Your month of sleeping until noon, gorging on holiday treats and Netflix binging has officially come to a screeching halt. As you begin repacking your suitcase and saying your final goodbyes to friends and family, you're beginning to question whether you actually want to make the journey back to college.

Perhaps, you think, this semester will be a fresh start, an opportunity to study a little harder (or party), meet some new people (or never leave your room). Despite the possibilities of growth and transition, your comfy bed back home and lack of responsibilities looks far too tempting...

Here are 13 times "Mean Girls" perfectly described your feelings about going back to school.

1. You're slowly dying on the inside as you remember that you still have to buy books for the semester.

Oh right, some of that Christmas money was for books... oh...

2. After devouring food during the holidays, you're a little self-conscious about your body.

My butt looks bigger? Duh, it's from all the squats I did over break. And by squats, I mean squash, and by squash, I mean ice cream.

3. But you've convinced yourself that you're going to burn it all off once you get back to college.


4. If you're coming back from abroad, you've slightly forgotten how to communicate with your friends.

Oops, I forgot. People don't take siestas at 2 p.m. or drink wine whenever.

5. You're super stoked to surprise your roomie after not seeing them for a month.

Or you might just lie in bed and have them let themselves in.

6. You remember that you still have to take down your Christmas decorations from last semester.

Or leave them up! Christmas will never end in your room. *Cue "Jingle Bell Rock" dance

7. You're beginning to question whether you are physically or emotionally prepared to return.

Too many people moving all at once... I can't... function.

8. But that anxiety is outweighed by your excitement to shake your thang again at the next party.

You might even meet your own Aaron Samuels.

9. This is a new semester, your chance to join an intramural or new club!

Yes, this is my time to shine!

10. Wait, does binge eating pizza at midnight count as an intramural?

From all of the pizza grease on my face, it should.

11. Ugh, and then you have to tell everyone what you did during break over and over again.

You'll just start making up stories of what happened over break because you're so sick of hearing what you actually did... *cough cough* nothing...

12. But you still desperately want to see your pals.

You forgot what it was like to socialize.

13. Despite your internal conflict about going back, you're still psyched for a fresh start, so go out there and do your thang!

Thanks, Kevin G. That is exactly what I needed.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
