55 Things I Would Rather Do Than Study For Finals

It's that wonderful time of year again where every college student has the same look of defeat, exhaustion and despair. Do I really have to study? Who came up with the idea of finals anyway, especially cumulative ones? I can barely remember what I had for breakfast, never mind what I learned in January. I am so ready to finally go home, sleep in and never have to open another word document again...well for four months that is. Here's a list of some of the many things that I would rather do than study for my final exams.

1. Shave my legs, especially around the ankle and knee

2. Get food poisoning

3. Have to eat another meal of grilled chicken and rice

4. Sleep through a week of hot nights with no window fan

8. Pull out my eyelashes one by one

9. Have to wear a strapless bra all day

12. Get a paper cut every time I touch a piece of paper

15. Go for a run - I hate running

16. Wear jeans for a week

17. Go to a dentist appointment instead of my final exam

30. Teach my mom what an emoji is

31. Go back to wearing the colorfully patterned underwear your mom would buy you in packages at Walmart

32. Listen to One Direction

33. Lay on the beach all day with no sunscreen - I'm pale and Scottish

34. Donate all my leggings

35. Give up wearing Uggs - I have like 10 pairs

36. Eat brussel sprouts for every meal

37. Only be able to talk in rhyme

38. Have my period for a month

39. Wake up at 5am every day - no naps allowed

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.
