College As Told By Ron Swanson

There are few individuals on this planet (real or fictional) who possess the raw intelligence of Ron Swanson.

Ron's passion for bacon and lowering taxes is a unique combination that makes him a fan-favorite character on Parks and Recreation. Through his knowledge, masculinity, and love of bacon, Ron has provided us with several pieces of advice to manage the college experience.

1. When your professor tries to tell you that you can't start the essay the night before

2. When you studied for 26 whole minutes and still get an F on the test

3. When asked what you want to eat after 12 hours of straight studying

4. When asked how you feel about failing all of your classes and having no future

5. When you stop eating for pizza every meal and try to meet your nutritional needs

6. When your family asks why you never come home

7. When a professor tells you there will be a group project

8. When your boss offers you additional hours at work

9. When you write the paper the night before and still have 20 minutes to nap before class

10. When you give up on everything and realize alcohol is the only answer

11. When you are contemplating how you can become a better student

12. When you're filling out evaluations and trying to find a positive trait of your professor

13. When your professor tells the class the final will not be cumulative

14. When attending any type of social gathering

15. When your friends post pictures that you don't remember being a part of

16. When your friend successfully adults

17. When a freshman asks you where a building on campus is

18. When it's 3 AM and you're feeling intellectual

19. When your friend is seeking advice

20. When your parents remind you that you'll eventually have to enter "the real world"

21. When asked how you feel about the end of the semester coming

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.
