Keeping It Together As A Senior, As Told By A Senior Who's Not Keeping It Together

Well, it is almost time for graduation. T-minus four months until graduation and all the doubts and worries start to fill your head. Is this really what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have to find a job I'll love otherwise I'll hate my life. Where am I supposed to live? What if I don't make friends at work? What's going to happen if I can't find anything? I don't want to move back home. I don't know what my future holds. I have no idea what I want to do.

If that sounds like you, know you are not alone. As your last semester begins and everyone starts asking you what you're going to do, it's normal to feel all the feelings of uncertainty and worry. I mean most of us are in our early twenties, so to think signing onto a job that could be where we retire is extremely intimidating and unappealing, in my personal opinion. I don't like the idea of going to the same workplace for 30 years waiting for each day to be over. I don't want to live my life working for the weekend. I want to love what I do and look forward to doing it every single day.

While four months seem like a short time, a lot could happen that you don't see coming. It only takes one day to change everything. One day you had no jobs lined up, the next you could have your dream company offering you a position. Who knows what the future holds? Worry and stress don't change what God has already planned for your life, so why waste your energy in what could be or what might be. Put your energy towards the excitement and preparation of what's to come. Four months is the perfect amount of time to tie up any loose ends as a college students and start to plan for the next phase of life. Don't be intimidated by change, embrace it!

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.
