We all know that balancing work and play is a priority to college students.

You want to succeed and get good grades, but you also want to have a good time while you're still in college. Some struggle with balance. They over booze-cruise and some over-dedicate themselves to their work that they never get their dose of Vitamin D.

But, one thing that everyone can say, is that almost everyone drinks in college. And, the amount that you drink can definitely make or break your grades.

3.5 or higher

You educations means a lot to you, but you still know how to have fun every once in a while. The weekends are your time to shine, but the party doesn't start until your homework is done.

3.0-3.4

A little overwhelmed with your school work, you relax by doing you work with wine or doing half of your work then heading to the bar for their specials. You're a few times week regular, but you never go super crazy. You definitely care about your work and definitely need to get it done, but you're not afraid to pick up the bottle and get wild every now and again.

2.0-2.9

You try hard to get your work done but the fear of missing out has you buggin' hard. So, you try to get your work done before you go out, but you might forget a few things. Remember to pace yourself, and you're spending money to go to school for a reason! You may be at the club 5/7 days of the week, but you'll still turn in some of your work.

1.9 or lower

In constant stress-mode, you de-stress by going out with your friends and getting to parties. It's probably an every-day affair. But, you may let your grades slip a little more than you should, so you spend the next several weeks trying to scramble up the GPA scale. Sometimes it works out for the better, but other times, you end up falling close or below the red. Remember, prioritize your future. You have your whole life ahead of you to party and booze.

Everyone has their vices on how to cope with work and stress, but know that you should partake in those vices in moderation. There is plenty of time to get messed up and make some memories, just do it after you finish your schoolwork. What do you think breaks are for?

Also, PLEASE don't do hard drugs!!!

Happy drinking...I mean, studying!

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.
