4 Reminders Before The School Year Ends

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

4 Reminders Before The School Year Ends

It's only April, however, the stress that comes with the final few weeks before summer vacation has set upon us all. There is only a mere couple of days to get our grades up to where we want them, and there is of course, the exams that can make or break your GPA. Trust me, I know, and heck, I'm stressed out too. But at the end of the day, if you feel like you won't make it and you find yourself freaking out, remind yourself of these four things to help you get through it.

1. Plan Things Out

You don't physically have to go buy an agenda or planner or anything, but I advise to make little notes in your phone or on sticky notes of goals you want to accomplish by the end of the year. For instance, if you want to get a certain grade in a class, what do you have to do to get there? It'll make things less stressful and jumbled in the long run once you have a clear idea on what to work on.

2. Take A Break

Yes, it is okay to indulge in some Netflix or nap breaks every now and then. Studying all day and night will kill the brain and will end up with bad results. Get some rest, eat well, and study accordingly.

3. Live In The Moment

Whether you're in High School or College, these are the best times of our lives, instead of running ourselves insane over our GPAs, we should be enjoying friends and clubs and what makes us happy as well. Get involved, go outside, or meet someone new!

4. You Can Do This

As I always say, anything you put your mind to, you can do it. I know, school is hard and it feels like it'll last forever and that it takes over our entire lives. But one day you'll look back and remember these days, so make it worth it. Don't cut yourself short and do your best as this semester comes to a close. Whether your graduating, starting new, or even somewhere in the middle, you can do this. Good luck!

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.
