There are just some things we all don't like about college, whether we can control it or not.

1. Laundry


We have threetwoworking washers in my dorm building and five working dryers. For the whole building.

2. Food Lines


If you go to Ithaca College and try to eat breakfast lunch and dinner on the hour, I pray for you. The omelet line is long, the taco line is long, all the lines are long.

3. The food itself is... questionable


Either you like it, or you don't, there is no in-between.

4. The weather


It's ice cold in Ithaca 75% of the year and boiling hot the other 15%.

5. It's hard to make new friends halfway through the semester


I'm pretty sure I only knew four people max in each of my classes.

6. Grades



7. Buses home


(For those without a car) The coach buses home are a blessing and a curse, either you get a seat to yourself or you're sitting with a complete stranger for 6 hours straight.

8. Scheduling for the semester


*When HomerConnect crashes at exactly your registration time*

9. Every class is full


*When HomerConnect finally connects and all the classes and backups you planned for are full *

10. Loud people at night


I live in a dorm and I swear to God I don't need to hear you singing High School Musical's "Breaking Free" at 2 am when I have an 8 am to get to.

11. Cost of college



12. Party culture


The guys outside Upper Quads that bellow "Yeeah" to each other, the sounds of guys and girls throwing up.

13. No decorating


I got a door violation and I'm bitter. Alternatively: Just let me decorate for Halloween please!

14. All your essays are due at once


At the end of Finals week you'll have written 8 essays, taken 3 tests, and still have to pack for home and maintain a social life.

15. People who don't raise their hand in a hands-raising class


Sorry, just, there was one guy in one of my classes that was super obnoxious and would blurt out whatever he wanted whenever he wanted and... It got on my nerves.

What a bitter post, sorry not sorry. Sometimes you just have to vent ya know?

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.

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.
