The 5 Stages Of Starting Fall Semester As Told By 'Bob’s Burgers'

The fall semester: where summer ends and the stress filled school year begins.

The 5 Stages Of Starting Fall Semester As Told By 'Bob’s Burgers'

Starting the fall semester is always the hardest thing to do, because the three months of summer freedom are over and you have now sold your soul back to school as classes begin again. It’s a rough life out there for a college student, y’all. There are many terrible stages as the semester begins again but to make it simpler, I’ll just give you five!

1. Excitement

You get excited as you begin to move back, because you finally get to see all of your best friends again! My personal second favorite of coming back for fall semester is FOOTBALL SEASON STARTING SOON. You reunite with all of your friends and get to catch up on everything that you did this summer! You get to hang out and relax before the stress of the semester begins!

2. Crying

You begin to sell your soul to the bookstore as you spend close to $400 on just textbooks alone. You then realize you have to go back to being a broke college student, because you just spent your last summer job paycheck on your textbooks.

3. Temporary Stress

You already start to stress because you begin to look at just the first chapter of your textbook. As you look at the first chapter, you realize you REMEMBER NOTHING THAT YOU LEARNED IN PRIOR SEMESTERS. This causes you to begin to panic and stress, but then remember that sometimes the professors are nice enough to at least review before teaching new material.

4. Relaxation

You finally begin to relax again, because you realize that you still have a few days of summer left. You use these last few days to sleep in while you can, finish binge watching any shows that you started on Netflix, hiding in your room from people, reading for fun, or even still spending time with your friends. Enjoy this stage while you can!

5. Panic

This begins the night before classes begin. The horrible, horrible Sunday night. You’re sitting with your friends when one of them suddenly says, “Y’all, classes start tomorrow.” Everyone then looks at one another in shock and realizes how fast these last few days went by because y’all were having so much fun being back together. Everyone begins to panic all together because your sweet, sweet freedom is gone and you now belong to your classes and student organizations yet again.

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.
