Sleeping In As A College Student

Tomorrow I get to sleep in. Yes, I said it- sleep in.

Sleeping In As A College Student
Kinga Cichewicz

I haven't been able to say this in a really, really long time. There is always something that gets in the way of Saturday's and Sunday's being the days I sleep in—as this has not happened in a really long time.

At the beginning of this week, I could see that my exhaustion was on full blast and knew I needed something to get me through another week of little sleep and a lot of homework. Due to this, on Monday I told myself that I would put all of my energy into accomplishing most of the things I needed to prior to Sunday. I knew that if I accomplished most of my important assignments like my fashion projects, I would feel good enough to sleep in on Sunday and spend the rest of the day doing the simpler assignments.

This was a brilliant plan (although, my exhausted self that had to over-compensate during the week in order to have one day to sleep in on the weekend wouldn't think so). I accomplished all of my fashion assignments that are due on Monday so all I have to work on tomorrow are a few brand posts and figuring out my outfits for New York Bridal Fashion Week which I'll be leaving for on Wednesday. Fabulous.

As a college student, I have grasped a much greater appreciation for days when I am able to actually sleep in. You can probably tell that these days do not occur very often, and I am very appreciative whenever I have them. In high school, I still valued them a lot, but I have found myself seeing less and less of them as the weeks go by in college. My schedule has somehow tripled, and my sleep schedule has done the opposite.

If you are a college student who is reading this, map out your week and try to allow yourself to sleep in on the weekend sometime. And if not on the weekend, try a day when you do not have a morning class (if you have a day without a morning class). Cheers to sleep!

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.
