6 Tips For Waking Up Early This Year
Kelly Mueller

It is coming to the time of year where we need to get back in the swing of waking up early and heading off to classes. We might not all be morning people, but after this list you'll be a pro!

1. Get a decent alarm clock!

It isn't a secret that a good alarm clock will help get you out of bed in the morning. If you prefer to use your phone as an alarm, there are many free apps that will even make you complete math problems to turn the alarm off! After you finish a few questions you'll have the brain of a functioning adult.

2. YOU HAVE TIME!

If you wake up earlier then everyone else, odds are you will have time to do all of the things that you've been wanting to do! Want to work out but you don't always seem to have the time? Try waking up early and using that opportunity to do things that YOU want to do.

3. Eat a good breakfast!

You should eat as soon as you wake up! You were just asleep for quite a few hours and your body needs nutrition and water to help jump start you into your day. When you eat and drink water right after waking up you will help yourself feel much less groggy and tired. Make yourself a smoothie or your favorite breakfast food!

4. Reward yourself!

When you start waking up early, people are always going to ask why, and you should always have an answer ready. My answer would be that I love to have a morning coffee and relax before I have to spend the whole day in class. Maybe your reason is that you want to clean your apartment or just even just the bragging rights of waking up before the rest of the world.

5. Avoid the snooze button!

It is time to get up once you hear the high pitch shriek of your alarm. Resist the urge to hit snooze and fall back asleep because those short nine minutes might seem worth it but most likely it will just make you feel even more exhausted.

6. Hop right out of bed!

As soon as the alarm goes off, hop right out of bed, turn the lights on and grab a drink of water. Try your hardest not to even think about how tired you are, just get up and start moving around.

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.

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.
