8 Ways To Deal With The Senior Slide

It's the final countdown.

8 Ways To Deal With The Senior Slide
Wandering Fel

Those graduating in May understand the dangerous nature of Senioritis. Though seemingly harmless, the thoughts of freedom plague our tired minds. Procrastination is the worst enemy. We have little motivation and an overwhelming amount of tasks to accomplish.

1. Watch Netflix

With new Netflix originals like 13 Reasons Why orA Series of Unfortunate Events, there are so many reasons why you and your couch deserve a date. What could be more important than catching up with the pop culture your peers are immersed in.

2. Order Delivery Food

Yes, you do have many options in your fridge or on-campus, but nothing compares to a fresh pizza delivered to you. Pick your poison, and settle in with an obsence amount of food.

3. Stare At Your Homework

15-20 minutes should be just enough to realize that you really, really don't want to do this. Maybe an additional five will make you realize that you have definitely made the wrong choice of major and that you officially hate your life.

4. Nap

Preparing yourself to do homework is exhausting. You probably have 5-6 hours of work, so this is the perfect time to lay down and avoid responsibilities.

5. Unnecessary Grocery Shop

24/7 shopping was created with the college procrastinator in mind. Yes, I should be writing my essay but I would rather spend twenty minutes stress-buying movies from the five dollar movie bin.

6. Browse Social Media

Though you have plenty of homework and studying ahead, you can never be too sure that you are missing something. What if there is a new and exciting meme we haven't seen? What if there is a new Tasty video that we will never make? There are rounds to do.

7. Cry

Yes, this is life. Reality may seem bleak, but there isn't much left.

8. Give Up

Don't worry, it's just this time of the year! You will overcome all of the obstacles ahead. You will graduate.

It's almost over, friends.

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.
