Thoughts You Have While Trapped On A Bus With Your Teammates

They're usually long and meaningless.

Thoughts You Have While Trapped On A Bus With Your Teammates

This weekend my team completed our final weekend of traveling for our spring season. These long and endless bus rides leave a lot of time for random and meaningless thoughts during the bus rides. There is time for pretending to do homework, a time for sleeping, and a time for team bonding because you love your team and you are also trapped on a moving vehicle with no way out for hours on end. The common ones are as follows:

1. I have so much time ahead of me on this bus ride, I'm going to be really productive.

2. Actually, first I'm going to watch a quick movie.

3. While I have the time I might as well watch the sequel.

4. I refuse to use the bathroom on this bus even though I seriously regret chugging that water bottle before we left.

5. Bus driver would you please stop slamming on the breaks.

6. How has it honestly only been 2 hours?

7. I secretly love looking out the window while listening to deep and thoughtful songs pretending to be all emotional and ponder the meaning of life.

8. It is physically impossible to find a comfortable position to sleep in.

9. I have no clue what state we are in anymore.

10. I should've packed more snacks..

11. This wifi is not working and I am not having it.

12. There is a high possibility someone will get bus sick during this trip.

13. There are no other people I'd rather be trapped on a vehicle with then these crazy teammates.

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.
