17 Times Every College Student Has Encountered A 'JR Smith Moment'

We feel ya, LeBron.

Literally, everyone is talking about the awkward, laughable, and cringe-y moment during the first game of the NBA finals. JR Smith, a player for the Cleveland Cavaliers, passed the ball in the WRONG direction of the court. With only mere seconds left in the game, he failed to shoot or pass the ball to break the tie and win against the Golden State Warriors. To be completely honest, I'm not a huge sports fan, and even I screamed, noticing the huge blunder while watching game one.

Smith's teammate, the legendary LeBron James, certainly noticed.

This iconic picture of an extremely pissed LeBron is circling the Internet, and his expression is seriously #relatable. We can all imagine what he's thinking in that split second of frustration. In college, we experience moments that make us want to throw our hands up, scrunch our eyebrows and have that "are you freaking kidding me" look.

We understand your pain, LeBron. Here are 17 times every college student has encountered a JR Smith moment.

1. When you walk into class and someone is sitting in your unassigned assigned seat

2. When you're the only one working on the group project, and your classmates are ignoring the group chat

3. When you're looking hot at the club on a Thursday night, and your crush is looking at someone else

4. When your roommate continuously ignores the compiling dishes in the sink

5. When your professor hasn't said anything about homework at the end of class, but a classmate asks if there's an assignment due

6. When turnitin.com says your last name is plagiarism

7. When you pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but the roads on campus are still trash

8. When you pay thousands of dollars in tuition, but there is NOWHERE to park on campus

9. When you park in a faculty spot for 0.005 seconds, and Campus Parking gives you a ticket

10. When you email your professor in an elegant, structured, and professional manner, and they respond with "K- sent from my iPhone"

11. When your Uber driver charges you WAY too much for a two-minute ride to the nearest party

12. When your academic advisor informs you that you have to take a course COMPLETELY unrelated to your major in order to graduate

13. When you're completely broke but your friends plan on going out to a pricey dinner (because they know you don't have a backbone and that you will join them anyway)

14. When someone types on their Macbook too loudly in class

15. When your only friend in one of your classes decides to skip that day

16. When your friend continuously talks about Chad from Sigma Apple Pie (and you both know he's a player)

17. When the semester ends and your friends abandon you for three months

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.
