COVID-19 Has Taken Away My Senior Year

It’s a sad time for all of us but even more of a sad time for us seniors.

COVID-19 Has Taken Away My Senior Year

With the national pandemic of the COVID-19, many schools are cancelling for a while. For many students they're happy about this (because who doesn't love not going to school). But for me, it's my senior year, I'm losing my last time at my high school. I'm not getting to experience school lunch shenanigans with all my friends anymore. I'm not getting to experience morning assembly with the student body anymore. I want to note though, I am in no way trying to come off as selfish because I do want the nation to heal and get over this virus!

I do wish there was some way I could still see all my good buddies and goof off like we used to! But I'm sure this COVID-19 hysteria will all leave just as fast as it came, if America takes time healing precautions. Despite the circumstances I'm trying my best to see the good in the situation no matter how dark it may seem. I'm so thankful for social media and facetime so I can stay in touch with all of my good friends! If I couldn't stay in touch with them through FaceTime or Snapchat I would probably go stir crazy.

Even though our senior sports seasons are cancelled we still are a team and are leaning on each other more than ever! To all the high school seniors who are upset and worried about not going back, we're in this together! Somehow you will get to experience those final games and your final prom!

Don't think you're the only one going through this because thousands of other high school seniors are going through it too! We all need to come together (social distancing of course) and work together as one! We need to take time to heal and grow stronger despite the circumstances!

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.
