7 Things You Will Miss From Summer

Some things you will miss come December.

As August comes to an end, fall approaches quickly with Halloween candy and decorations creeping onto the shelves of drugstores just a little too early. It all happens too fast. Here's a reflection of all the things we are desperately holding onto as our summer comes to a close and classes begin:

1. That tan you worked so hard for.

That tan you started working on even before spring break will soon fade away as the UV index drops and the sun begins to set before that 8 o'clock sunset time you became used to all summer.

2. The comfort of throwing on athletic shorts and t-shirts.

How many times did you opt to wear those Nike shorts and t-shirts out and about? Those warm days that let you do that won't last for long.

3. Having all the time in the world to work and make money.

As the semester begins, your paychecks either will completely disappear or your work hours dwindle away as you now try to juggle classes, commitment to organizations, and social life into your busy schedule. Now it's time to be thrifty.

4. Traveling.

Those adventures out-of-town, out-of-state, out-of-country, etc. You were packing up and getting away just when your work week got to be too much.

5. Beach access.

6. Late-night drives with your friends from home.

You spent your summer finally catching up with your hometown friends and then soon enough you're parting ways once again. You promise to keep in touch better this school year.

7. Home-cooked meals.

There's nothing like being home and having your favorite home-cooked meals almost every night after you have consumed a less than desirable amount of meals from your school's dining hall.

Although we are forced to give up these luxuries that my favorite season grants us, fall will have its own treasures. Reflect back on your summer and be grateful for those memories in your time of excitement for this new school year to begin!

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.
