Four Reasons Why We Shouldn't Have Class On Friday

Four Reasons Why We Shouldn't Have Class On Friday

Friday: The most anticipated day of the week. The day when all of our hopes and dreams of a carefree night where we don't have to worry about all of the work we haven't done or tests we haven't studied for.

This day is possibly one of the most unproductive days of the week, which is why having class is just a flat out inconvenience and here's why:

1. Unfocused

Let's face it, most people find it hard to focus in class on a daily basis, but if you think Monday through Thursday is hard I can assure you that on Friday if you look around the room most everyone will be preoccupied, sleepy, or on their phones.

2. Pointless

Believe it or not, Fridays are also slacker days for professors too. I know, I know it's pretty hard to believe that your professors are humans too, but they've got to be exhausted for all of us students having the time of our lives in college. Their lectures (especially on Fridays) are painfully boring and almost always irrelevant.

3. Unmotivated

I'm already exhausted and I'm sorry, but waking up for a full day of class just really interferes with my motivation to go out, which is a HUGE problem because I should be able to enjoy my weekend right? Well, not exactly. Since I'm always so drained from a long day of classes, Fridays are always the hardest nights to go out, which sucks because they're always fun and most of the time I end up staying in and falling asleep before 11 pm.

4. The Aftermath: Thirsty Thursday

Yes, but this is definitely a thing. If you choose a night of the week to go out, Thursday should be it. In order to reduce the amount of struggling hungover college students straggling into class, Friday classes need to go. Plus everyone pretty much skips anyways.

So … can we just cancel Friday classes already? Thanks!

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.
