8 things to do before college semester starts

College is hard in many ways because there is so much going on during the semester. But there are certain things to keep in mind before starting college. Then, it would be a lot easier on the first day rather than getting stress during the first day of college.

1. Plan- out all the things that you need for the first day of school, like class schedules, notebook, pens, bag, purse. These things are simple, but doing these things ahead of time will leave you with a calm that you got everything.

2. Look over your schedule- Looking over it for a minute will give you an idea what your whole day is going to be like. Also, who you have for the class.

3. Pack everything before the night- This could only take 2 minutes to pack all the necessary things into your bag.

4. Have some time to relax- Have 10 minutes to relax before going to class. This time could let you clear up your mind and get into the class mood.

5. Sleep- Having a good sleep for 7-8 hours will save you from getting nervous about everything. For instance, you are trying to work on a big assignment for 5 hours and you still have to work more. Then your brain will not work. Instead, this will clear up your mind to work longer.

6. eating breakfast- This could take like 10 mins. Eating in the morning is very important because you have not eaten the whole night.

7. Check canvas- If you have a canvas, it is better to check that class once before heading to the classroom. This will give you some idea on what you will be doing the whole semester.

8. First impression- This might be a big thing for many people. There is nothing to panic about. The first impression is very important but it is not much important to waste an hour to think about what to wear for tomorrow. Wear something that you feel comfortable in rather than about what others think.

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.
