Thoughts Before The First Day Of A New Major

How I'm feeling right now.

Thoughts Before The First Day Of A New Major

If you were to approach me around the time I graduated high school or even was about the begin my freshman year of college and said, "Hey Maddie, you're going to change your major halfway through your college career and now you're about to start your junior year of college in a new major" I probably would think that you were crazy and that I'm going to be fine in the major that I started out college with.

But alas, I probably bit my words there because that's what I ended up doing. If you read my article about failing my first college class, you probably would see that I changed my major at the end of the school year and spring semester. Throughout the summer I was very excited to be in this fresh new start to my life. But now that this is about to become my reality in only a matter of a few hours, I'm batshit terrified.

Seriously, the last time I felt this nervous was the first day of college my freshman year. That was because of course it was my first ever day of college, but of course I was starting on a path I thought I would take for the rest of my college career but instead, I went a different route.

Now, it's already past the first full week of school and I am proud to report that the first week has gone really well. I did make it to all of my classes on time (even with the exception of being only one minute late to my very first class because I was getting my Starbucks order since the President of the university was having drinks at Starbucks that day be on him but that wasn't my fault I'm not used to being a commuter yet).

Going onto another thing to talk about when thinking about my new major and that was when I realized that I am now a commuter and have to actually transport to campus and not walk everywhere. So with that, it was kind of a bit of an adjustment that will take me a while to get through, but give me about another week and I'll get back to you, dear reader.

So in conclusion, does anyone think that I am ready for this school year after spending about two weeks on campus, with one of them being the actual beginning of the 2019-2020 school year? I think the definitive answer to that question is that I will have to get back to you at maybe midterm or the literal week of either finals week or dead week (probably dead week so that I can actually give you all a thorough review about my school year while studying and dying for finals). I think that in general, while I was excited initially for the school year to begin, I think that I am now ready to go head first into the school year and kiss last semester's sorry ass goodbye.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
