11 Reasons Being A College Student Is Oddly Similar To Being A Toddler

It is not as easy as A. B. C.

I have never really felt like an adult, even after becoming one legally. Sometimes, I feel like I relate much more to your average 3-year-old than your average adult.

1. Poor Sleep Schedules

Your sleep schedule never seems to make sense anymore, because who knew that 2 PM in the afternoon was the best time to fit in your 8 hours of recommended sleep.

2. You stare blankly at objects

Even after staring at this algebra problem for the past 20 minutes, it still doesn't make any sense.

3. You can take a nap anywhere

As soon as your body sits somewhere long enough, you are destined to be out of commission for the next few hours.

4. You'll pretty much eat whatever you can find

Piece of bread with some hot sauce on it because money is tight? At least there some calories.

5. Depending on your night, walking can be difficult

Not everyone has these kinds of nights, but we all know someone who has.

6. Happy dances

When somethings good happens, you just unconsciously dance.

7. Your mom is super important

You rely on your mom more than ever. Who else can you ask how to clean a microwave.

8. You seem to fail a lot, but try to keep going

Being a toddler includes a lot of trial and error. It seems to have traveled to me as a college student as well.

9. Waiting to grow up

I wanted to be a grown-up so much even when I was 2/3. I am still waiting.

10. You cry, sometimes a lot

Like a whole lot.

11. But the littlest things make you happy

Even when you are down in the dumps, the little things in life still make you smile.

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.

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.
