The 10 Feelings All Freshmen Feel When They Come Home After Their First Semester

As Dorothy once said, "There's no place like home."

The 10 Feelings All Freshmen Feel When They Come Home After Their First Semester

Coming home after first semester like...

1. Crying when you finally get to see your pet



2. Crying some more when you meet up with your best friend



3. Crying a third time when your favorite dish is made for dinner



4.  Telling yourself you have to stop crying because you haven't been away that long to begin with 


Wow okay sorry about that y'all, I'm feeling better. I'm just happy to be home.

5. Finding joy in the little things of your home town


I love this corner. I used to pass it all of the time but loo now some flowers are growing underneath the stop sign. Incredible.

6. Sleeping. In. 


Enough said.

7. Panicking because you think you have homework but then you remember that you don't have to do any homework 


You mean I can just watch Netflix without any stress?

8. Feeling like your in high school again when you go out and just hang with some friends


I don't have to worry about anything. What's college debt? What's that B+ that should have been an A? I don't know all I know is that I'm back.

9. Getting excited for the holidays again 


I have no money but I am going to try to buy everyone the best gifts.

10. Letting the happiness wash over you because you are finally home and you just get to enjoy it for four-ish weeks 


This will be the best month of my life, I know it.

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.

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.
