I am one of those crazy people who starts organizing their school supplies in mid-July and becomes weirdly obsessed with the start of a new semester (only to dread classes two weeks in to the school year). As we all count down the days to a (hopefully) easy syllabus week and the swarm of freshmen on campus, here are the things I am the most excited about for this upcoming school year.

1. Moving into my sorority house


Next week, I move in my sorority house with 40 other girls. My dad thinks I am weird, my sister thinks I am going to go crazy and my mom wishes could come with. This is something I have been looking forward to and I can't wait to live with so many of my best friends!

2. Gamedays


Ah yes, beloved gamedays: when everyone gets up earlier to start the day than they would for their 8 a.m. class and when all the Brads and Chads get their lawns prepped and rent a bouncy house for the day. If you go to a big school, gamedays pretty much consume your weekends during the fall semester and cutting up $10 t-shirts is the best fashion flex out there.

3. Walking to class


Walking to class with a group of friends is easily the best part of a long school day. Goofing around while getting quite a few stares from other students and talking about hilarious things that happened that past weekend is the best way to forget you are all walking into a midterm for which everyone is screwed for.

4. Justifying going out on weekdays


"You had a hard Monday, too? Wow, maybe we should go out tonight." This is a phrase I have heard and used a lot during the school year and, for some reason, when your friends' lives are also crumbling on any given weekday, your life crumbling doesn't seem as bad, in a way it almost becomes a funny joke.

5. Productive homework sessions


There is honestly nothing better than going to the library and actually completing all of your homework. Although this is a very rare occurrence, since homework seems to come in a steady stream, being productive in general is simply the best feeling.

6. Having all of my friends back on campus


With move in days so incredibly close, I can't help but think how excited I am to be back with all of my favorite people and make another year of crazy and spontaneous memories. (Cheesy, I know, but we are all thinking it, so who cares?)

Being excited to start school is a feeling I feel very blessed to have. Finding what school is right for you and what you love to study (even though not every class is fun) is something I encourage every one to do. Whether that is a small community college or some crazy big place hours away from home (heck, I've tried both), your right fit is something no one can take away. Walking onto campus and seeing all of the beautiful halls, the light rail running through campus and the skyline in the background makes the University of Minnesota one of my favorite places. I have grown so much during my time here, and I am so excited to see what this next school year has in store for me.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
