5 Reasons I Miss Being At Clarion

I miss it a lot more than I thought.

5 Reasons I Miss Being At Clarion
Passage: College Days

This is how college feels once it ends for the summer


Yes. Yes you do..... Here's why

1. When you hit everyone up on social media, even the person who borrowed a pencil from you

Everyone misses each other. From the random stranger at Starbucks to the person who talks about their sorority parties, to even the kid you have every class with. College is one big union of clustered students who are just trying to survive. So we all band together. Once we no longer have those awkward moments and "I have you on snapchat," it becomes normal to strike up a random conversation about someone's summer, even though you can't remember their first name

2. Feeling overdue...

It's been 1 month and I already feel like I am late on 15 homeworks, 2 group projects and a review on some book. Yet, college is done with until August...However being busy with an education that is a major privilege, isn't so shabby.

3. Sleeping and Eating on a normal schedule

I never thought I'd hear that sentence for the next 4-6 years of my life. Not to mention that the food is home cooked meals, and not Ramen Noodles. Waking up without an alarm and knowing I can watch Netflix all day or read a book is amazing because relaxation exist. Yet, sometimes when you're busy living an "on the edge life," it is nice to have those memories, except being bored.

4. Making even more money

Every college student who is working throughout the summer understands. For once, our banks aren't crying, because a $200 access code wasn't needed, or a $500 textbook for a class that isn't relevant to your major. Wait, hold up. That's all going to the education and teacher's salaries.

5. Not having roommates/sharing the same floor

You can sleep all day and not stress about doing the laundry, dishes and cleaning the entire room because you have no roommates to clean up after or a wait list to do the laundry. Gone are the days of trying to sleep but at 2 a.m. a bunch of high, drunk, or both students are stumbling through the hallway. Silence has never sounded so beautiful. Yet, being surrounded by people makes connections, so it's okay because sometimes you need friends.

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.
