15 Mundane Things College Students Proclaim As ‘Miracles’

You finally have enough money to go out with friends.

These are those moments in college that make you awe in shock and gasp, "WHAT?!"

1. All of your deadlines fall on different days/weeks.

Like what? Professors are actually aware and considerate of that fact that you take more than one class? That's insane.

2. Your wardrobe consists of more than cozy university apparel.

If you wear anything else other than sweatpants and sweatshirts, you deserve an award. What twenty-something year old owns dress pants? Relax, you only have an internship. You don't know the true meaning of a 9-5.

3. Your diet contains fresh fruits and vegetables.

You don't even glance at 25 cent ramen anymore.

4. You can understand your professor's accent.

Bonus miracle: you know how to say their name with confidence.

5. You perform exceptionally on a quiz or exam that you legitimately did not study for.

You didn't even purchase a notebook for this class and you're somehow getting by?

6. You're able to zone out of lectures and still be on track.

YOU didn't even know you were that talented.

7. Your resume is close to being two pages.

You are...employable??

8. You have free time.

Hours of it.

9. You get your work done early instead of procrastinating.

Like, what?

10. Not everyone in your class is a smartass.


11. Not everyone in your class is a dumbass.

Omg, borrowing notes from a class you missed is actually helpful.

12. When people ask you how you're doing, you're able to respond with other adjectives besides, "tired", "stressed," "depressed," "suicidal," and "homicidal."


13. You clean your dorm bathroom.


14. You get a healthy amount of sleep each night.

Practically giving you superhero-like skills like "staying awake in class" and having enough energy to workout on a regular basis.

15. You finally have enough money to go out with friends.

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.

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.
