7 Questions I Ask Myself While Zoning Out During Class

The school year is getting shorter and so it my attention span in classes.

We all know how it goes: you're trying really hard to pay attention to your professor as they drone on about some concept you know will be on the exam, but for some reason all you can hear is the Charlie Brown adult voice as you start to zone out.

And when I zone out, I ask myself questions.

No, not meaningful questions that might help me pass the class I'm sitting in, but completely nonsensical questions that have nothing to do with anything but always seem extremely pressing. So, here are some of the questions that just happened to pop into my mind today.


1. Which "New Girl" character would I be?

I ask myself this question often. And, let me tell you, there are a ton of great online quizzes that are bringing me closer to an answer.

2. When people first discovered oranges and bananas, did they try to eat the peel?

This is a serious question! How long did it take people to figure out that certain fruits are meant to be peeled?

3. What time do I have to go to bed tonight in order to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep?

I basically start thinking about going back to sleep as soon as I wake up in the morning. I can't help the fact that I love my bed.

4. What is the meaning of life?

Just some casual existentialism to digest with your morning coffee.

5. How is Lady Gaga ONLY 5'2?

If you didn't know that Lady Gaga is only 5'2, now you do. Weird, isn't it? But as a fellow 5'2 person, I find it extremely inspirational that Lady Gaga and I are the same height. I just don't understand how someone so badass is so short.

6. Do people still judge me for that one time I did that one thing in sixth grade?

If you don't contemplate all the weird things you've done in your life and wonder if people still think about you as that weird person who did that weird thing, then you're the weird one.

7. Bees?

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.
