The Centre College Bucket List

The Centre College Bucket List

I've reached the halfway point of the first semester of my sophomore year, and I can't believe how quickly time goes. Before I know it, I will getting ready to enter the real world. Not only am I not mentally prepared for that to ever happen, but there are also a few things I need to accomplish during my time here at Centre before I leave.

1. Take Stephen Powell's glassblowing class.

Am I even remotely artistic? The answer is no, not in the slightest. But when will I ever get the chance to practice such a unique art form under the guidance of one of the top artists in the field? Good thing Centre offers a pass-fail option...

2. Run the flame.

Cliché, I know. Don't judge me.

3. Have P. Roush address me by name.

I'll just start carrying a name tag and put it on when I see him and Susie. That ought to do the trick. We WILL be best friends by spring 2018.

4. Study abroad.

Luckily, I'll be able to check this one off after next semester! Europe, here I come! Three months of crêpes, pasta, pastries, and other yummy food. Oh, and learning. Can't forget learning.

5. Play in the fountain outside the Norton Center.

Or, better yet, recreate the "Friends" theme song in the fountain. Shhh don't tell DPS.

6. Attend the Kentucky Derby.

While this is not an explicitly "Centre" thing to do, I feel like it is my duty as a northerner to immerse myself in Kentucky culture. Plus, I went to Keeneland today and am on a gambling high (even though I only made about $2.00).

7. Snap a pic by the C6H0 mural.

#neverforget when Centre beat undefeated Harvard 6-0... in 1921...

8. Catch the Nevin cat.

I have a particular set of skills. I will look for you, I will find you, and I will pet you. (And then go to Ephraim McDowell to get treated for rabies).

9. Sled down the hill in front of Old Centre.

Because sledding is not just for children, despite what the picture below may indicate.

10. Graduate.

Seeing as how I can't actually leave without this happening, I'd say this is a pretty important item to check off.

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.
