5 Gifs That Explain The Process of Finding Off-Campus Housing.

Because it's actually really stressful.

5 Gifs That Explain The Process of Finding Off-Campus Housing.

Being a sophomore in college, I was super excited for next year because I had the opportunity to get off campus housing. No RAs (if my RA is reading this, you are awesome), no more annoying neighbors, no more random a.m. fire drills and, most importantly, I get to save money. Going into sophomore year, I had an idea about whom I wanted to live with, but like everything, time changes things. By the time we started to look for a house, we had about 5-6 people. Since we didn't know how this really worked, we just started to look at houses but soon realized that we were behind the ball and actually needed to find a house. So here is a series of GIFs to explain our continuing journey.

1. Excitement.

At the beginning, we were more than excited to be getting off campus and looking for a house.

2. Disappointment.

When you think you've found the right house, it has everything you need and you have even walked through it, but then you call and the landlord says it has been taken already.

3. Anger.

Pretty soon after, anger hit, as in why we couldn't find a house and why nothing was going right for us.

4. Defeat.

Phone call after phone call, we thought the end was near and we were going to just give up and apply for on-campus housing and your life is falling apart.

5. Gratefulness.

When you finally find a house for next semester. Thank you, Taylor, you're a life saver.

To conclude, when looking for a house, do not wait. Look ASAP. If I didn't know someone, we probably would have been on campus. So if you want an off-campus house look now, and may the odds be in your favor.

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.
