Don't Make Me Be A Senior

Wait, When Did This Happen?

Don't Make Me Be A Senior

Dear College,

I am going to start by saying how much I love you and how much I never want to leave you, so please don't make me be a senior. I am not mentally prepared to be a senior. I don't know what it's going to be like to be searching for jobs instead of meeting with my advisor and already having all my classes picked. I don't want to grow up. I don't want to become an adult. I want to live at college and be next door to all my best friends. I don't want everyone to move away, living in different cities, and being all old and responsible and mature and stuff. Being a senior, everything will be my last. My last winter break, my last summer, my last everything. How do people live without a summer and winter break?! I am anxious about graduating and I am not even a senior yet. Just wait until next fall, when reality sets in and I am actually a senior. Don't make me do it.

It's hard to realize that everyone will soon have their own lives. It won't revolve around classes we can miss because there isn't anything important that day, or half-days we can take if we'd rather go on an adventure, or you, college. Life will consist of workdays that involve many responsibilities that don't allow a day off. And how scary is that? Soon friend groups will shrink and everyone will have their own families to worry about. It won't be as easy as texting someone across campus and having a coffee date.

No matter how hard I try, I will have to leave you, college, and yes, that scares me. It also scares me that I will soon be three-fourths done with college, and in the blink of an eye I will be walking across that stage to receive my diploma. And yes, it's scary to think about the future, and growing up. I don't know what life is going to bring, and I don't know where all my friends, let alone myself, will end up in life.

So, college, I understand that I can't stay with you forever, and this sounds like a painful breakup, but you will always have a place in my heart. We still have one beautiful year together so let's live it up and make so many memories.

Thank you for the past three years, let's go out with a bang.

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.
