Back to the ole grind.

How To Come Back From Winter Break

There are so many issues when coming back after winter break, trying to “maintain” your new years resolutions, getting back into the basis of going to school, and maintaining a social life while staying on top of your everyday work. There are moments where you miss the familiarity of your hometown, but it is time to go back out and take an adventure with the world (or at least your college city)!

It is best to begin as soon as you get back to become organized and at least attempt to sort together all of the due dates for big projects. A calendar usually helps out a lot of the time, especially when you feel as though you don’t know where to start and where to begin.

Another thing that may help to get back into the groove of school, is creating a list everyday after classes. It isn’t the most fun thing to do, but it could help to remind you about the most important things that you need done before trying to take a dip into that wine bottle that has been sitting their calling your name since you got back.

When ever there are moments where you just can’t handle anymore and you’re starting to feel a little homesick/ friendsick go to the gym or hangout with some of your friends at school, or better yet, hangout with friends at the gym. There are always going to be certain people that you will miss most of all, but always remember the people that are around you too.

If that type of thing doesn’t work out then Skype your friends. If they’re busy then make a Skype date once a month, it is only going to be another five months until you will see each other again. And there is also SnapChat, which is always a fun way to see each other’s faces.

College is considered a few of your best years of your life. Going back to school is sometimes the best thing ever! The people are the best part, the school is alright, but that is how you met these people who will stick by you and come visit you on breaks.

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.
