We all know this semesterly struggle.

40 Frustrations Every College Student Feels When They Schedule Classes

I think we can all agree that scheduling classes can be one of the biggest pains in your butts. There is so much thinking and planning that goes into it that it's hard to focus on any other task when you have this hanging over your head.

You need to make an advising appointment because you don't even know what classes you need to take. When you get to the meeting, you realize how many more classes you need to take and that stresses you out because now you don't know if you're going to graduate on time.

It's just a huge, long process that none of us really want to go through.

1. "I don't want to take any class before 9 a.m."

2. "Oh, this is the only one offered?"

3. "I guess I will be taking a class before 9 a.m."

4. "I wonder if there's an online class for this course."

5. "Of course, there isn't."

6. "Maybe I should meet with my advisor again."

7. "Am I going to graduate on time?"

8. "I'm supposed to graduate in a year, why do I have so many classes to take still?"

9. "I wish I took more classes in previous semesters."

10. "I should call my mom."

11. "Do I really want to take 18 credit hours next semester?"

12. "I'm doing this for my degree."

13. "I will get that diploma."

14. "I wish my major had block scheduling."

15. "I still have to do Gen Eds?!"

16. "Maybe I should just drop out."

17. "This is too much pressure."

18. "I love courses that only offer one time slot."

19. "No need to use Rate My Professor now."

20. "I need more options."

21. "My schedule is going to suck."

22. "Oh, great, these classes are at the exact same time."

23. "And they're both only offered in the spring."

24. "What am I supposed to do now?"

25. *internally screams out of frustration*

26. "I also need to make time for my internship and job."

27. "I don't even know when I'm going to have time for either."

28. "This is one choppy schedule."

29. "I should take a course over the summer."

30. "Then I won't need 19 credits next semester."

31. "But I'll be working full-time over the summer."

32. "I guess I'll make it work."

33. "Now I need to look into that."

34. "When will it end?"

35. "I just want it to be winter break."

36. "I hope the server doesn't crash when I schedule."

37. "Or that any of these classes close before I get the chance to schedule."

38. "What if I have to do this all over again when I enroll?"

39. "I'll cry."

40. "I can't wait to get this done and not have to worry about it until the middle of spring semester."

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.
