A Freshman's First Week Of College, But It's All 'Friends' .GIFs

College is a different atmosphere than anything you're used to. You're on your own and you don't really know what you're doing. The good news is, everyone else is in the same boat!

"I hope you got the email that we have a quiz today."

But it's... syllabus week.

Your first taste of freedom. Endless dining halls. No one to tell you what you should or shouldn't eat.

Who cares about the freshman 15???

The inevitably chaotic day of moving in.

Giphy

It's slightly organized chaos. Key word: slightly.

Finding a cockroach in your dorm room. Also inevitable.

Why are roaches so attracted to dorm rooms?

When all the unsupervised trips to the dining hall start  catching up to you.

Calories don't count on syllabus week.

After walking back to your dorm in ninety degree weather.

When is fall???

When you remember you had something due at midnight last night.

Giphy

The. worst. feeling. ever.

Breaking past the awkward barrier and getting close with your roommate.

Giphy

Hopefully, you lucked out with awesome roommates you can share this new and sometimes odd college experience with.

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.

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.
