31 Things College Students Are Thankful For

31 Things College Students Are Thankful For

1. Instant mac & cheese/ ramen noodles

Because who has time to cook anyways?

2. Sparknotes

Because who has time to read the whole book?

3. Wikipedia

The source of all knowledge.

4. No class on Fridays

5. Netflix

6. Alcohol

Nothing better than the warm embrace of Franzia.

7. Flex Points (or Dining Dollars or whatever else you want to call them)

Because who can afford to spend actual money on food?

8. Naps

9. Coffee

How else are you supposed to make it through the day?

10. Cancelled classes

The best email you could ever receive.

11. Game Days

A valid excuse for not getting any work done and drinking copious amounts of alcohol.

12. Events with free food

FREE. FOOD. Need I say more?

13. The fact that it's acceptable to wear pajamas to class

14. Random hookups

Because once you enter the real world this isn't as socially acceptable or easy to come by.

15. Bars that don't card/ aren't strict on fake ID's

16. Uber

Because I got really tired of getting ripped off by cabs.

17. Going home for the holidays

When else can you get a home cooked mean?

18. Having a "free" gym membership

19. Sleeping in

20. Classes that don't take attendance

21. And aren't discussion based

22. Student discount

That 20% off really makes a difference.

23. The Career Center

Who else is going to help you find a job after graduation?

24. Classes that start at noon

25. Extensions on assignments

26. The library

Where else are you supposed to get sh*t done?

27. That one attractive person in your class

Because who else are you supposed to stare at to help pass the time?

28. Curves on tests

Otherwise, there's no way I would've passed Chemistry or Calculus.

29. Opportunities

You get to work with some of the best people or travel to the coolest places and it's all relevant to you attaining your degree.

30. Your parents

For their unconditional love and support always.

31. The friends you make

The only reason you manage to make it through 4 years of ups and downs

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.
