6 Feelings All College Students Have As Spring Semester Begins

Winter break is over and that means school is starting up again. A new year, new classes, and the new semester will have its highs and lows. While students might have gotten into the swing of college life during the fall semester, relaxing is number one on many people's to-do-lists over break, and people lose touch with the emotions they felt during the fall semester. Here are a few things us college students are feeling about heading back to start a new semester:

Sadness Because Break Is Over


Break is done, so that means days of rest and relaxation are behind them which is sad to accept.

Excitement About Catching Up With Friends


While being away during break, many might have lost touch with some friends, so it's time to re-connect!

Anxiety About Upcoming Classes


While there might not have been stress when scheduling particular classes two months ago, anxiety about that one hard class will be consuming now with the semester in a matter of days.

Relaxation About The Easy Classes You Have


While that hard class brings the stress, the other easy class or two take away some of the anxiety about the new semester because you know it will be a breeze.

Motivation To Start The Year Off Strong


Now that it is a start of a new year and students are back is school, they might feel motivated by the start of the new year and with new resolutions to try their best in their classes and to work hard for their future career.



For some, they might not even feel any different about going back, because they were so used to it from their experience as an underclassman, so going back multiple semesters after long breaks is no big deal. The new semester is just a regular feeling they are used to. How lucky to be them!

I hope some of you were able to relate to these emotions, or lack thereof, from your own experiences when you had to go back to college after a long break!

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
