Things Every College Student Is Thankful For

As Thanksgiving approaches, its good to go back and reflect on all the things one is thankful for. Whether its family, food, shelter, etc., we all have many things to be thankful for. For college students, here are the top 12 things we are all thankful for!

1. Mom

Mother always knows best! Without your Mom trying to micromanage every little thing going on, your life would truly be a mess. Thanks Mom for keeping my life together!

2. Dad

Our fathers are always there when needed, especially for hands on work. Moving in and out of the house would not be complete without your father moving everything for you.

3. Siblings

Even though siblings drive us crazy, they still tend to also keep us sane. A Facetime or Snapchat every now and then truly shows that you secretly miss each other and cant wait for winter break.

4. Friends

Whether they are your friends at school or at home, they're always here to put a smile on your face.

5. The Weekends

After a long week of test, quizzes, classes, and studying, the weekend is such a wonderful break from all your responsibilities.

6. Nap Time

Nap time is the most important part of the day. After a long day of classes and work, naps are a MUST.

7. Netflix

It's Netflix, who doesn't need it on a regular bases? Thank you to the inventor of Netflix for making thousands of addicting shows available with a click of a button.

8. Delivery food

Due to our common laziness, delivery food is just a phone call away. Calling for food makes life so much easier.

9. Sweats

Key college article of clothing: sweats. Sweatshirts and sweatpants are an everyday thing whether worn to class or to bed.

10. Surprise care packages

Running low on snacks and goodies? The random surprise car packages come in handy and seem to arrive at the perfect time.

11. Classes being canceled

On days when one is too tired to go to class, or everyday, classes suddenly getting cancelled can give one time to sleep in or end their day a little earlier.

12. Free Wifi

When out of the dorm or library, WiFi is needed. Sharing a data plan with the whole family can be a real struggle, so free WiFi can make all your troubles go away.

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.
