Trust Me, If You're Debating Having An Internship In College You Should 100 Percent Do It

I know what you're probably thinking, why should I get an internship while in college when I already have so much on my plate? Or that you're already so busy, you don't see yourself having any time to commit to yet another thing. Well, let me tell you why I think having an internship while in college is important.

Internships can help prepare you for your future career if you get an internship in the field you want to potentially work in. Getting an internship in the field you want to work in can help you gain the experience needed for jobs.

They also help you learn valuable skills needed in the workplace that you can only learn and receive through on the job experience, such as communication skills, problem-solving skills, how to work with clients, and time management skills.

Internships are also important because they can give you some sort of structure while you are in college dealing with so many stressful situations. They can also help you figure out how to navigate through those situations that you don't know how to workaround.

Internships can also be a good resume booster and look good to future employers. They can give you a good networking experience and allow you to meet different job prospects. And help you develop and establish deeper connections.

Internships also allow you to learn more about yourself. They encourage personal development and a greater understanding of your goals and how you can best achieve them. And help you figure out what you like and what you don't like.

They help you transition into a full-time position. If you have never worked a full-time position before, going from part-time to full-time can be overwhelming and difficult to do. Internships helo the transition be more smooth. They help you learn how a professional workplace operates and gain professional feedback on how you can better yourself and your work ethic.

So if you're debating about doing an internship while in college, just do one, trust me, it will be worth 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.

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.
