Exams Week As Told By 'New Girl'
The Hollywood Reporter

No amount of therapy puppies, therapy pigs (our school did try this), or even spoonfuls of Nutella can save you from the inevitable all-consuming stress that is midterms or finals. Someone decided that it would be a grand idea to make college students turn in all of our longest papers and most important tests during the same week, so we're all paying the price. The good news is that when you feel weird and sleep deprived, everyone understands, even the cast of "New Girl."

1. You try to secure a spot in a good study group.

2. You give yourself some much-needed pep talks.

3. You find out that one of your finals is scheduled for Saturday.

4. Your teacher decides to make a paper due on the same day as another exam.

5. You reach your breaking point.

6. Your friend tries to help you calm down.

7. It doesn't work.

8. You start making acronyms for everything.

This is a fantastic study tactic. I highly recommend it.

9. Wearing presentable clothing becomes optional.

10. You decide to order Domino's in the middle of the night.

It tastes better than ever.

11. You try to go work off some of the stress (and stress-eating calories) with a few burpees.

12. It becomes really hard to keep a positive attitude.

13. The lack of sleep makes you irrationally emotional.

14. Someone asks you how ready you feel for the exam.

15. The day has come.

16. You walk in to take the test.

17. You consider making a quick exit.

18. Then you get into the test and start to remember what you studied.

19. But, you did not remember quite everything.

20. You walk out of your last exam victoriously.

You did it. Congratulations! Now, go get some sleep.

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.

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.
