Everyone is starting to get settled in their classes by now. Week 3 is stressful and sadly sometimes it will get worse but let me offer you some tips.

1. Have a calendar!!

Please write your assignments in a calendar. I struggle so much with remembering deadlines and I think it’s important to have a calendar full of them! You might even put them due a few days earlier and work ahead

2. Group your classes

By that I mean don’t make all of your math and science work be done on the same day. Do some math then do some English. Then do some science with something else another day. Don’t make all of your hard work be done on the same days.

3. Goals

You have to set goals. Make it your goal for the week to not stay out passed 10 pm until your homework is done. Make it a goal to not leave on Friday night until all your homework for the weekend is done.

4. Don’t do all of your homework at once. 

Don’t spend more than a few hours a day on homework. Don’t over work yourself just to finish deadlines.

5. Relax.

You aren’t the only stressed one. You will be okay. Take some time out of the week to do the thing that calms your soul.

Remember that college is supposed to be fun and not stressful all of the time. Take a deep breath, it will all be okay.

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.
