Finals are Approaching...

How Not To Fail Finals Week

Its that time of year again! Its the end of the semester and all your class are about to be wrapped up but there is only one thing blocking you from the freedom of winter break.


Finals week or in my school, finals weeks (because not every class will have a final in one week), is one of the most stressful things in college.

As of today, it is my first week of finals and people weren't kidding about the week being stressful. When it comes to finals week, there are three main people you will see. The ones who are freaking out because the test is everything you learned in the course, the one who is perfectly fine and isn't stressing, and the last person is the one who doesn't care and wants to go home.

I don't know about you but I would like to be the second person.

The good news is you can be. The main thing you can is to not procrastinate. That is the downfall of you acing your tests, essays, and projects for finals week. The weeks leading up to winter break are crazy because Black Friday happens, Cyber Monday comes and goes and good old life gets you and its not your fault. During this time, a lot of people get sidetracked because its hard to concentrate on school, life, holidays, and family.

The thing is: you got to know when enough is enough and prioritize what needs to be done. It can be hard because you want to get presents for your family and deal with life issues that occur and finish an essay that is due the next week. But just remember, life, family, and holidays will always be there, but finals week is only a week out of your busy schedule and failing the final isn't going to help your overall grade.

I hope everyone has good luck during finals week and may the odds be ever in your favor!

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.
