The time has come. Classes have started and you finally have to kiss those summer nights goodbye. But thankfully in college, you do not have to dive head first in right away. You have a handy-dandy week called syllabus week. So here are the 10 emotions we all face during syllabus week.

1. Happy.


Nothing is due right away, you get to know the class and the professor all without unneeded stress.

2. Excitement.


You get to see all of your cool college buds which just makes the week even sweeter.

3. Tiredness.


You haven't been keeping a sleep schedule so by that time your first 8 am rolls around, you are doomed.

4. Regretful.


You finally look at your syllabus and think why did I come to college again?

5. Over it.


When the same question is getting asked by different people in every other class you will be over it.

6. Procrastination.


After looking over what all the week and the semester will entail for you, you already start think of your procrastination plan.

7. Really?


When the professor begins to explain the attendance and grading policy. I mean Really?

8. Challenge accepted.


After hearing all of the things you need to do for the class and the suggested reading you HAVE to have. You see how long you can actually go without purchasing it.

9. Questioning.


This is also the week you begin to think do I really need college?

10. Relieved.


Although you still have a full semester of work ahead of you, you are just glad it's syllabus week.

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.
