11 Things To ACTUALLY Get You Excited For School

No one is ever fully excited to go back to school but finding a few things to look forward to helps.

11 Things To ACTUALLY Get You Excited For School

School is hard, classes suck, it causes anxiety for most. Why would you be excited for it to start again after a nice long summer? Finding things that you do love about going back to school helps. Whether it be getting new binders or just being one step closer to graduation, once you find that thing hold onto it.

1. Getting new school supplies.

Before every semester I go to the dollar store or Target/Walmart and pick up some cute new school supplies. Sometimes it's colorful pens or a new binder, having new stuff makes me excited to use it. I have found almost 30 unused highlighters in my house so maybe don't go too crazy.

2. Having an enjoyable class.

We all know most classes are annoying and difficult. However, if you have one class just pick something from it that you're excited to learn. For me, in my really hard classes, I'll pick a section that looks fun to explain. I just get excited to explain something really difficult for my friends and family.

3. Vacations.

Every semester has some sort of break in it. Fall semester has Labor Day so make a plan for it. Maybe go to the beach or just a have a pizza night with friends. Making plans gives you something to look forward to.

4. Seeing old friends.

If you're already taking classes in your major you'll probably know a lot of people. Now's the chance to see old friends and catch up. You don't have to be super close but at least you'll have someone to sit next to!

5. Parties.

Partying every night will destroy your college life but fall semester has the best parties. Going out every now and then breaks up the monotony of daily life. Give yourself a break every now and then so you don't fall into a rut.

6. Study buddies.

The best way to make studying seem like less of a chore is by doing it with others. Find a group of people that can make jokes and laugh while still learning the material. Once you find a good group you'll be excited to go and study.

7. Meeting new people.

If you're a freshman or sophomore you'll meet new people every semester. You'll make countless friends if you want to. Start creating group chats or go to events. School goes by a lot quicker with other people around.

8. Actually going back to school.

A lot of students spend summer at home or abroad so it's nice to go back to the normal routine. Missing your dorm or apartment is totally normal. You may even miss the messy roommate who left dishes out all summer. Getting back to school and your dorm may make you excited to be home.

9. School events.

Every college has some sort of events going on, usually every week. At FGCU, we have welcome weeks, homecoming weeks, events on the lawn. Sororities and Frats have fundraising events that are going on and all the clubs have things they're giving away. Knowing about these events and going to them can make you less bummed about being in class.

10. Halloween (or other holidays).

Fall semester, in particular, has Halloween right in the middle. Having a scary movie marathon or going to a pumpkin patch makes October go by quickly. Following Halloween is Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah so just remember you have plenty of breaks.

11. You're closer to graduation.

You're one semester closer to being done! You'll start your job or go to more school. So keep your head up as you get ready to move on.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
