Holiday stress? Homework overload? *Hair flip*

The Month Of December For College Girls, As Told By Rachel Green
NBC

Rachel Green (AKA Jennifer Aniston) is basically the queen of 90s television.

Though she can be a little over-the-top at times, Rachel taught "Friends" fans what it's like to grow up and navigate ALL the obstacles that a twenty-something will inevitably face.

As a huge fan of the show, I find her to be very relatable...especially when it comes to college life. The biggest feat we are all about to overcome?

The month of December.

December is FINALLY here, which means... CHRISTMAS

You and your friends could NOT be more excited about the colorful lights, holiday tunes, gift-giving, and lots and lots of FUN!


The ONLY thing truly standing in between you and the ~most wonderful time of the year~?

Finals. Week.


Finals mean studying, and studying means stress, and stress means...well...lots and lots of chaos.


You're trying to maintain a positive attitude, but you can't help but react when someone causes you even the slightest inconvenience.


(It's OK, though, because no one can ruin your holiday spirit -- even a final or two).


You're evidently stressed out about finals, and whenever somebody asks you what's wrong, this is your (false) response:


On the inside, you're feeling a little more like this:


What's even worse is when somebody tells you that it's 'just a test' and that you should probably calm down.


Tomorrow is the day of the test that you anticipate to be the hardest... you're not really sure what's happening.


You sit down to take it, and you're doing your very best to maintain your composure. You KNOW your sh*t!


The professor put something on the final that he PROMISED would NOT be on it.


It ended up being (a little) harder than expected, but you studied hard and powered through.


Now onto three more exams... the only things standing in the way of a month-long break and CHRISTMAS!

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.

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.
