5 Things That Being A Student And Working Teaches You

Being a student for any length of time, or amount can be so stressful, degrading at times, and purely exhausting physically, mentally and emotionally. Some handle better than others; but no matter the fact, it is still extremely difficult. But even though it can be exhausting, it can also be rewarding in more ways than one. And here are the ways how;


You learn to be disciplined in ways unexplained. You have to learn to be punctual with assignments, and attendance amongst a billion of other things. You might know that friends are going out, but you have to study; so you choose to stay in and work your butt off.


You learn to respect yourself, and others because people with jobs have all gone through specific training, certifications, or even schooling which had them be in your shoes for a period of time. You respect what they did to get to where they are.


You appreciate the little things whether it is finally relaxing for 30 minutes before you go to study, the time on vacations because it feels like an eternity in between the ones you do get, and as silly as it sounds the time in the morning where you are getting ready; and it's you only you.


You learn that others depend on your loyalty as a friend, family member, employee, or classmate. If you are to not commit to the things that you signed up for it can affect others friends.

The Final One Is "Hard Work"

Your hard work truly does pay off, rather its getting that self-love present you've wanted for months, getting an A on that hard test, or affect just achieving a goal that you aimed amongst.

All of these things come within the experience of juggling a lot on your plate; it takes someone special to do what we do. So do not get down on yourself, you are doing; just keep on trucking because there is always a finish line to walked across.

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.
