13 Things You Know To Be True If You Went To Windsor
Whitney Goldacker

Wait, what high school did you go to? Windsor. Oh, where's that? Imperial. Oh, where's that? OMG like 30 minutes south of St. Louis. So, like by Arnold kind of? Yes. If you went to Windsor high school, you understand the struggle. Although that may of been one huge struggle, here are 13 signs you went to Windsor.

1. Camo was your second school color.

I think we wore camo a little more than we wore brown and gold, especially to basketball games. Even the basketball team wore camo warm ups.

2. Your school colors were known as poop and pee.

I mean.... can you really blame them? Although these are old uniforms our colors still haven't changed much.

3. Even though our football team usually lost, we still packed the stands.

Most games we lost, but that didn't ever stop our spirit. It also never made people stop coming to games. The stands were almost always packed no matter what the score was.

4. Basketball games against Seckman were usually the best games.

Most basketball games were fun and memorable, but if you attended the Seckman vs. Windsor basketball game in 2016, being one of the last games of the season, you won't forget it. Technical foul in the crowd, lots of cheering, screaming, parents getting mad, ya know the best parts of sports. It was a great game to say the least.

5. Our mascot is the least scariest.

We look at the other Jefferson County schools and their mascots are scarier than ours of course. We've got the dragons, the warriors, the jaguars, the tigers, and then us, the owls. As if we already weren't considered the underdog in most cases.

6. Seniors last day meant you definitely wanted to avoid the senior hallway and all the crying.

The day they would play the senior song and suddenly all seniors would come out of their classrooms into the hall and cry for the most part. You didn't want to get stuck in that mess because if you did you didn't know if you'd be able to make it out.

7. You rarely saw a person you didn't know.

When you walked down the hallway you said hi to a lot of people. You also rarely saw someone you didn't know and if you did then you figured out who it was within the next hour usually.

8. We apparently rode tractors to school.

I think this is how everyone else imagined us driving to school, especially Seckman. I mean they are the ones that started the 'start the tractors' chant even though we literally are 10 minutes away from them if even.

9. Our school came together through everything.

Anytime anything tragic happened we always had each other to lean on. In this specific picture after our principal got diagnosed with cancer we put on fundraisers and made shirts to help and donate to his family and him. We always came together when we needed to.

10. Docs homecoming jokes may have been cheesy sometimes, but you always laughed.

He would interrupt the whole assembly just to tell us one joke about another school. Most of the jokes he made were cheesy, but a homecoming pep assembly without them would've never been the same.

11. V-I-C-T-O-R-Y that's the Windsor battle cry.

This one was always everyone's favorite even if it gave you a headache from screaming it or from listening to everyone else scream it. No pep assembly would be the same without it.

12. Pep assembly days were always wild.

Classes were always shorter which made things a little more hectic and everyone was always more excited. Then, there were the announcements for different groups to get out of class early and then everyone got to go sit in a crowded gym and be wild.

13. No matter how much we said we hated it, we wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else.

This was the place we grew up and the place we loved. We may have complained about it every day we were there at times, but we wouldn't be the people we are now without this school and the people we met.

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.
