The most relatable post to any college freshman.

The Truth About Freshman Year

Here are some of the most relatable and common firsts of freshman year:

1. Leaving home.

This probably one of the hardest. Leaving your hometown, family, friends, and familiarities is a lot harder than what you expect even if you are ready to leave.

2. Cleaning your dorm room.

When you first arrive at college, you must clean and decorate your dorm room to make it feel like home. After that, it is probably a good idea to clean it to keep bugs out.

3. Saying goodbye to your family.

If you think saying goodbye to your home is hard, just wait til you say goodbye to your family at college. Watching them leave the dorm is one of the hardest things about going to college in my opinion.

4. Making your first friends at college.

Get ready to meet a lot of new people and make some awesome friends.

5. Going out for the first time.

Make sure you go out with people you know especially for the first time. And just have fun!

6. First day of classes.

Just try your best to not look like a freshman.

7. First football game.

Make sure to tailgate too!

8. First exam.

Even if you study for days, looking at your grade is going to be like getting hit by a bus.

9. Rush.

Despite all the sweat, makeup, and tears, be ready to find your home for the next four years.

10. Getting tired of the dorm food.

This will probably happen after a week or two.

10. No caption needed.

11. First Frat Party.

This will probably be terrifying at first but after you will know exactly what to expect for the next.

12. Going home for the first time and seeing all you friends.

This is amazing.

13. Spring break.

14. Going home for summer after freshman year.

After being away at college for months, it has become a second home. Leaving your new friends is going to be hard, but luckily sophomore year is only a few months away!

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.
