When They Had 5 Seconds To Breathe, I Asked 15 College Students How Their First Week Of School Was Going

From “it sucks” all the way to “ESKETIT.”

When They Had 5 Seconds To Breathe, I Asked 15 College Students How Their First Week Of School Was Going

Ahh, college. It's grown up boarding school. For some, it's their first time away from home and family. Moving into dorms is a whole day's event and classes just seem to start out of the blue.

In the midst of the hustle and bustle during the first week of college classes, I asked 15 different people about their first week and how it was going.

These are their answers.

1. "Pretty good. My classes just suck and I hate my chemistry teacher."


2. "Good. I just don't like getting up for my 7 am class. It's so far away from my dorm. I don't even have time to eat."


3. "It's going great. I don't have any complaints. I am so excited for this year, though."


4. "It's really fun actually. I like it so far. I saw an old lady with a rolling backpack. One of my professors didn't take roll or introduce himself."


5. "It's going good. My classes are all easy. I've been to the pool twice, so that's nice. I'm chillin'."


6. "It's good. All of my professors are fine, for now. My classes are all interesting."


7. "It isn't as bad, as I thought it was going to be. It's kind of like high school. I met cool people in my classes, too."


8. "It was okay. It's just going to be a hard semester. I already know it."


9. “My professor reminds me of my dad, which is super funny. I am actually  excited to go to my classes. It’s not like high school, where I had to go to classes I didn’t like.”


10. “I love how everyone is so talkative in my classes. It makes my classes more interesting.”


11. “The first week here was really hot. My classes are already stressing me out. My roommates are cool, so I’m having a good time.”


12. “I got my work cut out for me. Tuesdays suck, but it’s going to be a good year.”


13. “I skipped both of my classes today. My professors are nice. But I still feel like I’m going to miss classes again this year.”


14. “I like my classes. They’re really cool  for the most part. I’m just hungry all the time.”


15. “It’s going good. I just think that this is going to be a tough year for me. But I am ready for this year and I’m so excited.”

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.
