21 Signs You're Not Ready to Graduate

21 Signs You're Not Ready to Graduate

It's that time of the year again. The sun is finally out, there are day parties every weekend, and finals are quickly approaching. However, this year is different. Why? Because you're a senior and these are your last few weeks of college. Instead of being excited about summer being right around the corner, you're having a quarter life crisis wondering what the ^#*@ you're going to do with your life. Some of your friends have amazing jobs lined up in New York City, some are going to grad school, and the really lucky ones are coming back for a victory lap. While you fall into zero of those categories your life looks somewhat like this:

1. You can't imagine a weekend consisting of only two days rather than three.

2. You wait to do your laundry until the next time you go home to your parents' house.

3. When people ask what you're going to school for, you say it's to get your MRS degree.

4. You don't know how to manage your own money and cannot imagine doing it with a steady paycheck.

5. Your apparel consists of leggings from Sunday-Wednesday and going-out clothes from Thursday-Saturday.

6. When you run out of groceries you're too lazy to go buy more so you eat out for a week straight... until you check your bank statement.

7. You've completely given up on your GPA because enjoying your last few weeks of school is way more important than getting good grades.

8. The pizza delivery guy knows your identity based upon your address.

9. You have no idea how to study for something without using the Internet.

10. Time spent in the library consists of 50 percent Facebook, 25 percent finding new music, 20 percent comparing your life to random articles (like this one) and 5 percent actually studying.

11. Monday is your day to recover from the weekend, Sunday is just a day to laze around with your roommates in your pajamas.

12. The only dates you ever go on are your date parties.

13. You have too much FOMO to stay at home on a weekday.

14. You can't make it until 5 p.m. without an afternoon nap.

15. "Decorating" your apartment consists of cheap movie posters and old booze bottles.

18. You can't imagine living with only one roommate instead of your eight best friends.

19. You still watch cartoons.

20. Your parents still give you a weekly allowance.

21. You have no job lined up and quite frankly you don't really care.

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.

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.
