Why Class Registration In College Is The Worst

All college students (especially underclassmen) practically hold their breath until registration for classes is over. It's a frustrating time! It's something that all students will feel better about when it's all done.

1. Finding a Plan B, C, or D.

If Plan A fails, then so does Plan C, and D. It takes forever finding something that will work out. For. EVER!

2. Not getting the class or professor you wanted.

It may be the class or professor that everyone is talking about, and making you want to take... but you can't because you were too late. Now you're having to either wait for an opening, or wait another semester while finding something different.

3. It takes FOREVER to find an open class that captures your interest.

It's especially hard when you (or even your degree requirements) are so picky about what to take. Then when you see the name of a course that looks interesting to you, it's either all full or complicates with your current schedule.

4. Basically, your particular plan is ruined.

You create a schedule before you sign up; You get your hopes up before and after you wake up early on registration day, log onto your computer, enter your PIN number, and course numbers... and your hopes for at least ONE of those courses are dashed.

5. Your computer chooses this moment to be slow.

WHY now?!?! WHY?!?!? Isn't technology great?

There are some things that all students dread about registration (besides needing to get up early). Thankfully, the older you get, the better things become.

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.
