College Life As Told By 'Toddlers And Tiaras'

"I get all jacked up on Mountain Dew."

College Life As Told By 'Toddlers And Tiaras'

"Toddlers and Tiaras" is one of my favorite shows, and while watching it I often catch myself saying "same." Who knew your favorite pageant queens could describe college life so perfectly?

When the professor says, "This is not something you can put off until the night before."

You wanna bet? Hah, I'll show you.

Seeing a dog walking across campus and getting reminded of how much you miss yours is pretty much an everyday thing.

It never gets easier.

8 AMs (or any morning classes really) are the worst.

How did I do this every single day for 12 years?!

Sometimes you spend hours doing absolutely nothing productive.

Do I have plenty of things I could be doing? Yes. Am I going to pretend like I don't? Yes.

You have no idea how you managed to do your makeup everyday in high school.

I may look a tad rough, but I would much rather spend 20 extra minutes sleeping.

Every. Single. Penny. Counts.

Life can get pretty tough when you only have $15.36 in your bank account.

The Wi-Fi likes to play tricks on you.

"Oh, you have online homework that's due in an hour? I think this would be a great time to take a little nap." -the campus Wi-Fi

"Sorry. Class is cancelled."

The joy you feel when you wake up to that precious, rare email from your professor is indescribable.

You can not imagine life without caffeine, especially the night before a big test.

I truly appreciate you, coffee. Thanks for waking me up in the morning and keeping me up for those long hours in the library at night. You are the real MVP.

Walking in class 10 minutes late with your Starbucks like...

Yes, I'm that girl. Slightly embarrassing, but so worth it.

Two words. 13 letters. Enough to make any college student shudder. Group projects.

Ugh, gross.Please just let me work by myself. I don't have to deal with the slackers, meeting times, and higher level of pressure to do good when it's just me, myself, and I.

"So, what do you want to do after you graduate?"

Watch out, world. This queen is coming for you (in a few more years, of course).

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.
