An Open Letter To The Person With A Busy Week

Maybe I just want to sit down to eat and breathe.. But I don't have time.

An Open Letter To The Person With A Busy Week

Do you ever feel so stressed because of the week you are about to have? It's Sunday night and all you can think about it how you have three papers due Thursday, work both jobs every day, a presentation that is worth half your grade on Friday, a staff meeting on Saturday, and a pile of laundry as tall as the chair you keep it on.

If that is you, I have some advice on how to make it through your hell week.

1. First, remember to take one day at a time.

This is something my mom and grandparents have always told me. There is no need to get yourself worked up about the entire week, prepare for one day at a time.

2. If you need to, set an alarm to remember to eat.

A headache, stomach pain, and mood will not help you at all when you don't eat, fit it into your day!

3. Make a daily list of "to-dos".

This will help you keep things straight and be able to prioritize. Also, you will get the satisfaction of checking things off your list!

4. Be sure to carry around a water bottle.

Keeping hydrated throughout the day will help with brain activity and hunger if you have little time for a meal.

5. Right before you go to bed, make sure your bag is packed for the next day with everything you will need

Also, wash your face, drink a glass of water, and go straight to bed. This will keep your body and mind fresh while also helping you sleep.

6. While traveling to your other job, to school, or back home, call your mom, grandma, or brother.

Fit in some chat time to stay socially involved, while also still going through the motions of your day.

Remember to take a day for yourself after your long busy week to recuperate and relax. After all, trust me, you deserve it!

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.
