Spring Semester Here We Come!

7 Thoughts Students Think Before Moving In

There are many things going through a student’s head before they move back in for spring semester. Good thoughts, bad thoughts, or maybe no thoughts. Here is a list of 7 thoughts students have before moving back in!

  1. “I cannot wait to move back into the dorms/apartment” There is just something about living away from home that college students absolutely love… INDEPENDENCE!
  2. “My family is absolutely nuts! Get me out of here” and “I’m going to miss my family”When you are at home visiting over break for long periods of time you tend to get cabin fever and everyone in your family tends to get on your nerves. Even though they are constantly on your nerves you are going to miss their craziness even more!
  3. “Yay! Classes are starting soon!”This can be in an excited tone or a very veRY VERY sarcastic tone. The only good thing about classes starting again is that you have a routine again and you are one semester closer to graduation!
  4. “Can I bring my Dog and/or cat with me?”Just thinking about those sad eyes looking at you when you are walking out the door to go back to school can make anyone cry. You just want to bring them with you and hope no one notices your bag moving around when you walk through your dorm door or when there are quiet “barks” and “meows” at night when everyone is asleep.
  5. “Do I really want to do this thing again?”The old debate in your mind whether it is worth going back to school or not, do you really want to go through another semester of classes, homework and tests? Is it all worth it? For some people yes it is, or others it may not be the right choice. Make sure you think this one through long and hard before you say no though.
  6. “Do I really have to eat dining hall food again?”If you have a meal plan and no kitchen, then yes, back to the dining hall you go. However, most dining halls are not that bad and provide healthy food (and not so healthy food if that’s what you prefer)! You actually might start craving dining hall food after not having it for so long… maybe, just maybe…
  7. “I can’t wait to see my friends again!”Yes, it has been a whole month since you have seen your friends and roommate. You have so much to tell them about what you did and all of your family (or friend) gossip! Maybe you have a game that you want to show them or something else! You just want to see their faces just to make sure that they are still alive and well!

Many thoughts go through a college student’s mind when they are moving back, “Did I forget this, and did I forget that.” These thoughts go through every college student’s mind maybe once, twice or a million times, trust me, that’s normal.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
