What It's Like To Be A College Student In April

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

What It's Like To Be A College Student In April

April is in full swing, and with it comes warmer weather, days by the river, and the impending doom of the end of the semester. We suffered through five months of Poughkeepsie winter and now it's time to enjoy the warm weather we've been waiting for, right? But what about exams and papers and summer plans? *cough* not important *cough*. April is a 30-day battle between the rising temperatures and the pressure of exams, finals, and summer plans, and the only solution is to pretend it's not happening.

1. When your professor doesn't let you skip class solely because it's 70 degrees outside.

2. Trying to convince yourself you have time to blow off school in favor of day drinking.

3. And convincing yourself you can make it through the last few weeks of your classes.

4. Being told that four weeks is not enough time for your 74 to become a 90.

5. Hearing the words "finals."

6. Being asked where you're interning this summer and knowing full well you still don't have anything lined up.

7. Showing up to your professor's office asking for extra credit after being told not to show up asking for extra credit.

8. Checking to see if your paper wrote itself while you were out participating in warm-weather shenanigans.

9. Finding out that your paper did not in fact write itself while you were out participating in warm-weather shenanigans.

Happy April!

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.
