14 Firsts For College Freshman

There's a first time for everything

14 Firsts For College Freshman

Freshman year. Living away from home for maybe the first time in your life. For many people, freshman year brings a large amount of firsts. I decided to compile a list of both positive and negative first experiences freshman may have. All of these firsts help you grow as a person, and they make you one step closer to being an adult.

1. First weekend you get to sleep in without having to listen to your parents whine and complain.

2. First Monday morning you wake up at three in the afternoon and realize you slept through half of your classes.

3. First time you find out how long you can stretch your wardrobe without having to do laundry.

4. First time you realize you probably shouldn't go three weeks without doing laundry.

5. First time you get to go grocery shopping without adult supervision.

6. First pounds of the freshman 15.

7. First day you get to wear whatever you want to class without having to worry about dress codes.

8. First day you realize that wearing a tank top and shorts isn't smart when you have class until after dark.

9. First time you make friends with your upstairs neighbor.

10. First time you wake up at seven in the morning on a day you don't have class because the walls and floors are so thin that you can hear your upstairs neighbor's alarm clock going off. Every. Monday. Morning.

11. First time you realize you can adjust your schedule so you don't have Friday classes.

12. First class that ends at 9:45 at night

13. First walk of shame home from your best friend's house after a long night of partying.

14. First night that makes you realize there is no place else you would rather be.

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.
