Back To School Blues

Poetic inspiration to achieve the success you desire

Back To School Blues

My alarm clock is set and it's for a time far too early to tell. I'm destined to press snooze, I know it but, oh well!

As you may have guessed I'm preparing for back to school rather than out enjoying the sunshine. They try to tell me it isn't my first rodeo and I'll be just fine, but I just whine because I want forever summertime but instead I'll be locked away in the dimensions of the schoolhouse like a prison, while shaky beads of sweat got me taking my pre-quiz glistening because the heat is still torturing me although my luxury of enjoying the season has been suddenly revoked. I'm quick to turn the station because Drake's summer sixteen is now suddenly a joke.

Yes a joke but nobody's laughing except for parents and the teachers with their evil syllabus plans. They will assign you more than enough homework for you plus your friends then wonder why you're so stressed out as if your life isn't in their hands. I guess it's okay because this is the life they recommend, claiming you can't be anything without a higher education. That's clearly false because there are a million ways to make the cut and everybody has a different knife.

In other words, you can't properly measure success because everybody has lived a different life. We all come from different places, and to forget them we should not because someone can start at the bottom then make it to the top and technically has had more success than the person who started in the middle and didn't have to climb a lot. If the person who started halfway is just a step or two ahead, then people see him as more successful when he never had to eat crackers and cheese spread.

So that's why you should never question the success someone is trying to make. Be supportive of them even when they're feeling a little irate at the fact that school starts in a couple days because you both can become successful, you both can reach the top! Don't bag on them cause you'll feel bad when you eavesdrop and find out you have things they never got, but know you're both capable of driving that drop top whether you both stay in school or not because success is a state of mind (that's a quote I never forgot). So as we set our alarm clocks, don't you snooze for too long because there's success to be made, you can do it, just stay strong!

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.

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.
