Funny Things Heard On  UGA's Campus This Week

Summer has come and gone and the fall semester has returned to us. Most of us are experiencing mixed feelings about this reunion, such as dread for school work, excitement to see our friends, and everything in between. As I traveled around UGA this week I occasionally stopped to bask in the glory of the campus. Occasionally while doing this, I unintentionally ended up hearing bits and pieces of people's conversations. Here's a few that threw me out of my "taking it all in" moment and had me silently giggling instead.

1. WHY would you take her to Golden Corral?

2. "As the years go by I get older and all of my students stay the same age. I hate them."

3. "I got a confirmation email about football tickets, can I drop down to 9 hours now?"

4. "Everyone kept enthusiastically dancing even though the room was silent when speaker broke."

5. "I rode my bike to class today and only almost wrecked twice."

6. "We're going to go blow up 500 balloons, we'll text you when we're ready."

7. "Isn't it weird how feet come in different sizes?

8. "I tried to fix a toilet last night but it didn't work out."

9. "So there I was, dressed like scrambled eggs."

10. "She got electrocuted but it's all good."

11. "I think I broke my thumb. Wanna go to dinner?"

12. "My Heelys came in!"

13. "You never DM me on Instagram anymore."


15. "I cried because I looked pretty but no one wanted to take any group pictures."

16. "The only bandaids I own have cuss words on them."

17. "Your mom just added me on Snapchat."

18. "Yeah he apparently has the Zika virus, but like it's not that serious."

19. "It was totally worth being tackled."

And lastly...

20. "I'm going to buy my books at the UGA bookstore after class."

Welcome back to school! May your semester be great.

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.

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.
