When there's only a few weeks left and you've accomplished nothing...

17 Thoughts All College Students Have In August
Cara Giannetto

At the end of every Spring semester, we all have these amazing ideas of how we are going to spend our summer. Going to the beach, going on adventures, getting tan, getting fit, and most importantly, not doing school work. However, it never turns out as we planned. We spend our days working, taking summer classes, and watching Netflix. And then all of a sudden we realize it's August and we've accomplished zero of our summer goals.

1. Seriously, how is it August already?

I swear finals week just ended...

2. This summer definitely wasn't long enough.

Three months is not enough time to make up for 16 weeks of hell.

3. I'm not mentally prepared to go back to uni.

Classes, homework, papers, OH MY.

4. I've literally done nothing but work all summer.

5. And take classes.

6. I'm not any skinnier than I was in the Spring, either.

Being skinny this summer is cancelled, try again next year.

7. Or tanner.

8. How have I worked all summer, but still have no money?

*suppresses memories of getting food and online shopping*

9. How have all my other college peers managed to go on fun summer vacations?

10. I'm telling FAFSA.

I'm sure they'll be very interested to hear about your trip to Florida.

11. Okay, enough moping. There's still a few weeks left to enjoy the summer.

12. In fact, I'm going to plan something with my friends right now.

*sends texts hoping to not get ignored in the group chat*

13. And they're all working. Never mind.

14. I hope my classes don't suck this semester.

15. Oh, who am I kidding? They're going to suck.

16. What am I going to tell everyone I did all summer?

Working, taking classes, and watching Netflix is not an exciting story.

17. I have failed this summer. Try again next year.

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.
