Don't 'Throw Away Your Shot' At A Fire Graduation Insta Caption And Use One Of These 10 Hamilton Lyrics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvBYOBTkDRk

As graduation comes sooner than any of us anticipated, it's easy to feel a rush of emotions. Despite the sadness of leaving the place you called home for the past four years and the anxiety of going out into the world to do whatever it is you are meant to do, I think we can all agree on one emotion that is definitely the most predominant: excitement.

We've worked our butts off to get to where we are today. We are finally going to get that piece of paper that opens endless doors for us. I think it's safe to say we're all feeling about as cocky as the founding father on the $10 bill.

Here are 10 lyrics from the Hamilton musical that any college grad should use as an Instagram caption to toot their own horn as loud as good ol' Alexander himself.

1. "There's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait, just you wait."

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.
