Dear Freshman Year,

Thanks for helping me.

Dear Freshman Year,
Deanna Jacopino

With freshman year over, I've found myself reminiscing more than I ever have before. Freshman year has a weird way of changing people whether it be for better or worse. I'm lucky to say that my freshman year has definitely changed me for the better! I still can't believe that freshman year is over because it feels like just yesterday I was finishing my senior year of high school. It's true what they say, college really does go by like the snap of your fingers. So please, Time, slow down.

Not going to lie, freshman year wasn't always easy. It had its ups and it definitely had its downs, but I guess that is all part of the process. Back in August, I was pretty scared to start all over again at a new place. Little did I know that the second I began college my life would change forever.

During this past year, I was able to figure out who I am and who I want to be as a person. I was able to commit myself to my school work, make many new friends and even lose some people along the way. Every situation this year good or bad has helped me figure out who I am and who I want to be. So if you're reading this and you were a part of it, thank you. All of this has shaped me into the person I have always dreamed of becoming.

This past year has been a journey I know I will always remember. So finally, thank you, freshman year, for teaching me so many valuable lessons and bringing so many amazing people into my life. You will be missed terribly, but as the saying goes; "On to the next one." See you in the fall sophomore year!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
