Four years. Eight semesters. Forty classes. The end is just around the corner.

When I first entered college, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I always loved to write so I hoped something pertaining to writing would be my future. For the last several years, I have written tons and I expect that to continue in the coming years.

My writing still has flaws but I know with time I will get better. With graduation fast-approaching, I will soon start looking for jobs that fit my field. A lot of my peers have already started looking and have been both successful and unsuccessful in finding positions but I know we will all get there.

College has been a time of learning and a time to have fun. I have been told journalism is all work and no play by a few people but I hope to find a good balance between the two.

Spring break 2020 will be my last break ever and I plan to cherish every minute of it. We go through our lives working with little time to ourselves, so I will hold on to this break with fond memories.

These last four years have been some of the best and worst years of my life. Through deaths in the family to being told I am not good enough to being praised for things I have never received acknowledgment for before, the last few years have been a whirlwind.

Do not lose sight of the outcome. Many students act like college is just a fun ride, but the reality is that the outcome is the important part. The lessons you learn in college will guide you through your life.

Enjoy your college journey and cherish the moments you spend with your friends and the focus on doing what you love. Getting an education is important but so is taking a step back and figuring out what makes you happy.

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.
