18 Ways College Is Like An Episode Of 'Friends'

Let's face it: When it comes to the struggles that college students face, no one gets it better than the cast of "Friends". Here are 18 times when their lives were all too relatable:

1. When you try to get creative while writing an essay

2. When you come home and eat all of the food in the house because you're sick of cafeteria food

3. When you turn in your paper one minute past the deadline

4. When you try to justify why the cafeteria food is edible so you won't starve

5. When your roommate starts changing in front of you without warning

6. When you do everything in your power to fight off the Freshman 15

7. When you're on a date and they ask you to talk about yourself

8. When you and your friends have to decide whether to Netflix binge or study on the weekends

9. When your life feels like a train wreck but your friend comes to you for advice

10. When your roommate eats the last slice of pizza that you were secretly saving for breakfast

11. When your professor assigns homework over the holidays

12. When you want to be independent and pay for your own tuition but you realize how much it costs

13. When you try to justify why you can't take an 8 a.m. class

14. When you feel like dropping out of school during finals week and your friends try to encourage you

15. When you realize that your mom isn't there to take care of you anymore when you're sick

16. When you're waiting for your grades to be posted after finals week

17. When your friend tells you they were up until 2 a.m. taking Buzzfeed quizzes…again

18. When people ask you what you want to do after you graduate

Just like the cast of "Friends", you know that life (and college) has its ups and downs, but the friendships that you form along the way make everything worth it.

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.
