Words Of Encouragement For The Spring Semester - 1/21

At this time of the year, every student needs some kind of encouragement to end the year off with vigor.

After a long winter break, we are finally in the spring semester. Seasonal depression is still upon us with the gloomy clouds, but the thought of flowers blooming, the sun shining, and the grass coming to back to life lifts us back up. This time of the year is different for every student, but depending on where you stand, here is some encouragement for this semester.

1. Freshmen

Whoo! First semester is done. Now that you know your way around campus, it could be time to get more involved with different activities and get an understanding of what you like. Look into the study abroad program, community service opportunities, internships, and anything else that allows you to end the year strong. Along with that, it is important to build a strong GPA.

2. Sophomores

Junior year is coming close, and that means that this is your last semester living in dorms (unless you are/will be a Resident Assistant). Although you may be looking forward to living alone, take advantage of the meal plan you are given. Try to go to every meal and give yourself that energy to end the year strong.

3. Juniors

Time seems to fly by fast. One second you were a freshman, and now you are close to entering your senior year. This is your final stretch before entering the last year of your college career. Look into the activities you have been wanting to do and plan what your last year and a half of being an undergraduate would look like. It is better to go and try things and get ahead rather than regretting it later.

4. Seniors

Alas, it is your final year here as an undergraduate. All of your hard work has brought you to where you are now, but it is not over yet. Make this spring semester your best yet. Leave college with others remembering your legacy. Check off those last few items on your bucket list. Reflect on everything you have done here to give you the energy to finish with grit. It is your time to shine; make the most of it.

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.
