7 Positive Affirmations You Need To Get You Through Finals

College students are starting to enter that time of the year where everything is happening all at once for us. We have finals to study for, summer plans to finalize whether that be internships, jobs, or summer school, and good-byes that we have to say to all our friends we won't see until the start of the next semester. It can all start to add up and the stress can take a toll on us. Keep reading if you need an extra dose of positivity while navigating this busy time!

1. Grateful for where I'm at, and excited about where I am going.

Think about all the possibilities that the future holds (just avoid the stressful kind of thinking that leads to the 'I have no idea what's happening'). Think about all the things that get you excited for the next few years of your life. Take a break and day dream a little - just come back to reality and study hard with all your new motivation!

2. Do less with more focus.

Right you a list of all the things you need to do before the end of the semester. Go over it and cross off anything that isn't dire. We often tell ourselves that we need to get more things than we actually have to do. Get rid of the little things on the list... thinking about them only adds stress.

3. Start today with a grateful heart.

Remind yourself of all the blessings you have in your life to day. If it helps... make a list of five or so things. Remember that your education is a gift, you have people who love you, and you have the potential to do great things.

4. Surround yourself with people who make you hungry for life.

It's going to be a lot harder to focus on the positive if you are surrounded by others who are complaining. Instead, surround yourself people who will encourage you to put your best effort forward when studying for your finals.

5. Every day might not be good, but there is something good in every day.

Some days are hard this time of year. There are not enough hours in a day to do everything that you want to do. Studying seems to takeover every second of your free time and it is hard balance eating, sleeping, studying, and socializing with your friends. Find that little bit of good that happened to you today and focus on that!

6. I love the smell of possibility in the morning.

Wake up. Grab your coffee. And have a great rest of your day. Start your day off the best way you know how and make the rest of your day even better than your morning.

7. Be someone who makes other people look forward to tomorrow.

Be a source of positive energy for those in your life. Encourage your friends to do their best. Be there for them when they have their 'finals breakdown' and they will be there for you when you have yours. Teamwork makes the dream work.

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.
