College: As Told by Cage the Elephant

Relatable Lyrics

College: As Told by Cage the Elephant

1. When you go out on a weekday and have an 8:30 A.M. the next day

“You say that I’m insane, I say you’re probably right.” -“Cry Baby”

2. When you have a paper to write, 60 pages to read, and a group project all due the next day.

“Right before my eyes I saw the whole world lose control, the whole world lost control, before my eyes” -“Right Before My Eyes”

3. When you thought you knew everything on an exam, but you failed

“Everything I thought I knew fell to the side” -“Right Before My Eyes”

4. When a frat boy plays mind games with you and breaks your heart

“I don’t think it’s very nice to walk around my head all night” -“Around my head”

5. When your professor asks if you did the homework and you have to lie

“Spoke a lot of words, I don’t know if I spoke the truth” -“Trouble”

6. When your handing in your midterm and questioning whether you’ll pass the test

“We will come to pass, will I pass the test?” -“Trouble”

7. When you check your bank account and have a negative balance

“Money don’t go on trees. I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed. There ain’t nothing in this world for free” -"Ain't No Rest for the Wicked"

8. When you wake up laying on the bathroom floor after a long night out

“Softly laying on the ground” -“Shake Me Down”

9. When you watch Netflix instead of studying and realize hours have gone by

“Time is like a leaf in the wind, either it’s time worth spent or time I’ve wasted” -“Telescope”

10. When it’s just one of those days where you don’t want to deal with anyone, or any of your classes

“He locks his door and never leaves” -“Telescope”

11. When you go to the health center because you feel like you’re on your deathbed

“Doctor can you help me ‘cause I don’t feel right” -“Cold cold cold”

12. When you’re trying to memorize flashcards but just can’t seem to remember anything

“I’ve been trying real hard to realize, but some things take a long, long, long, long time” -“Aberdeen”

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.
