20 Thoughts We All Have While StuDYING for Finals

How is this college education thing supposed to support my future 6 dogs?

20 Thoughts We All Have While StuDYING for Finals

As a college student, these are the worst and most stressful 5 days of our lives. Summer is a week away, but first you have to get through the week. You are so close to catching up with old friends and cuddling your dog at home. You have done well all semester even though it was a struggle. You can't let this week ruin all the hard work you put into school so far. The pressure is on but you can do it! You also probably have a few of these thoughts running through your head:

1. How much caffeine is safe to consume? I am already shaking but I only had 7 cups.

2. I can't study at home, my bed is at home. I will just fall asleep.

3. I can't study at the library either, it is too crowded and people are screaming/Facetiming on the non-quiet floors that have the good tables.

4. Okay, I guess I'll study at the laundromat. It is dead. WIN. I can finally get down to business.

5. *Plays "Let's Get Down to Business" from the Mulan soundtrack.* This song gets me PUMPED. Wow I am really a loser...

6. *Frantically calculates grades* Great, I only need 168% on the final to get an A in this class. Totally possible.

7. What is the absolute lowest grade I can get on this final to still get an A in this class.

8. Is this even worth it? College is starting to seem like a scam.

9. My friend that started work right out of high school has a well paying full-time job with benefits, why didn't I do that? I sure as hell would be in a lot less debt.

10. How much do exotic dancers make? Maybe I can move to Vegas...

11. Wait. I am unattractive and can't dance to save my life! Darn.

12. Did we even learn this? It isn't in my notes or my books.

13. If I was married to The Rock I bet I wouldn't have to study math.

14. The Rock is in Moana... and he SINGS in it. That is such a great movie.

15. *watches Moana*

16. I want Sheetz, I will just walk there to buy some mac n cheese bites. And of course more coffee. Then I will go back home.

17. OH MY GOSH IT IS ALREADY 4 a.m. how did that happen?

18. I need a beer.

19. Now I have the hiccups. My final is in 3 hours, better get to sleep.

20. I usually do pretty well in school and already studied so much, this is all I can do. Take a deep breath, you will be fine.


21. It will all be worth it. Hopefully... This college education thing is supposed to support my 6 dogs and love for Jeeps someday.

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.
