30 Reasons I'm Scared Of Graduating

If you're a college student like I am then you're sitting there thinking how great college is (or maybe not, homework is hard and you're probably procrastinating some essay you should be writing. But college has all these expectations built up around it and then suddenly its over! As a junior I'm already freaked out about what comes next. I can barely get a job for the summer how am I supposed to get a job for my LIFE?! So if you're out there freaking out, just know you're not alone. And that this list will probably not make you feel better.

1. College is basically camp.

2. I don't have to cook all the time and I won't starve.

3. I have so few responsibilities its ridiculous.

4. All I have to do is go to class and learn.

5. Sure I have a campus job but even that is nothing compared to the "real world."

6. Lets talk about the "real world" shall we.

7. It's SCARY out there.

8. You have to get a job.

9. A real job.

10. That can support you.

11. And your family...?! At some point.

12. People expect you to do more than go to class and learn.

13. Your friends don't live next door.

14. Your friends don't live in the same town.

15. Or city.

16. Or country!

17. Wait who thought college was a good idea?

18. I know its an immense privilege.

19. But damn it's scary out there.

20. In the "real world" you have to show up every day.

21. Be a functioning self-sufficient human.

22. On your own!

23. WTF?!

25. College is basically camp. And the real world is NOT.

26. What even is the "real world."

27. I don't think its like that reality show.

28. Wow I hope it isn't like that reality show.

30. Now I'm just more scared of graduating. And I'm only a junior.

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.
