Why We Can't Wait For Fall To Start

Let's face it, we're counting down the days.

Why We Can't Wait For Fall To Start

1. Being reunited with your people.

When we say bye to our friends for the summer, we "promise that we'll come visit when we have time off!" But that rarely happens. Summer flies by and you don't realize that you don't have much free time. And if you're lucky enough to actually see your long distance friends, the short amount of time that you do have is never enough. I know I cannot wait to tackle my roommate the second I set foot in my apartment.

2. Getting back into the swing of things.

It's nice to have an idea of what your week is going to look like. You make plans yourself now. No more mom and dad dropping plans on you at the last minute, ruining previous plans you had made. Having a routine is good. Having your priorities set is good.

3. Actually being excited for some of your classes.

Whether it be a class that you're taking with your best friend, or a class with what seems to be an awesome professor, it's always best to actually enjoy what you're studying. General education classes usually suck, but I'm excited for my core classes that actually have to do with my major. For those of you who call me a nerd...well...

4. College football.

Tailgating. That is all.

5. Starting new experiences.

Some of us are rushing. Some of us are starting new jobs. Some of us just want to be reunited with our best friends. No matter what it is that we're looking forward to, most of us are just counting down the days until we're back in our college town this upcoming fall.

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.
