College Life As Told By 'One Tree Hill'

Even though "One Tree Hill" skipped over college and jumped four years ahead (and left us wondering what happened), the show can still exemplify how the average person feels during his or her college years. On the show, there are several trials and tribulations, ups and downs, moments of great joy and moments of sadness. The same happens in college. Between papers, exams and balancing our social lives, college is a stressful time. But there are also many experiences of happiness you get to share with your friends. Here is college life, as told by "One Tree Hill."

1. Peyton exemplifies how we all feel about Mondays.

2. When the professor pushes the due date of the paper back.

3. When you see the test and realize you know absolutely nothing.

4. When it's raining and you forget an umbrella (and you have to proclaim your undying love for someone).

5. There is always that one person you don't like.

6. When your best friend has a date and you're the third wheel.

7. When someone gets you coffee.

8. When you have no clean clothes.

9. When you can't pay attention in lecture.

10. When you are joking with your friend but she takes it seriously.

11. When the dining hall has no good food.

12. When you know you aced the test.

13. When your roommate goes home and you miss her.

14. When you're ready to go out.

15. When your squad has it all together.

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.

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.

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.
