It's Officially That Point In The Semester Where Students Begin to Fade Away - College Students Know What I'm Talking About

Don't worry, we're all in this together at this point in the semester.

The semester is coming to a close, and so is our amount of caring. And our patience. And our appearance. And our everything pretty much. I've noticed several things throughout the last few weeks that I'm sure you've noticed too. Not only have the classrooms gotten smaller and parking lots gotten emptier, but the libraries have gotten fuller and the cafeterias have gotten more crowded.

Seems unusual that people would be in the library when they don't go to class, but I've noticed that those people often ask others for notes, then go study those. I've seen more study groups and meetups because everyone wants to know what everyone else is studying. Facebook groups have been bombarded with "How do I study for so-&-so?"

But it's also that point in the semester when no one really cares. Sure, you'll always have those people who keep going to class and keep studying and keep showing up. But even those people don't really care. There's not really anything you can do to your grade within the next week or so before exams. There's nothing you can do to get extra credit, because chances are, your professor hates giving it. There's nothing you can do about the parking ticket bill you've racked up, or the amount of money you've spent on coffee.

And quite frankly, no one cares.

We're all just walking around like zombies on campus with our feet somehow taking us to class, then the next, then the next. We're just pushing through 'til the end, because then we have a month off for Christmas. We're collaboratively not caring while simultaneously still doing schoolwork. It's that point in the semester when there's not much you can do, but you just keep doing what you're doing.

And this probably doesn't make sense, but my brain is fried, and I just don't really care.

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.
