If Justin Bieber Could Make a Comeback, So Can I

Fall semester: a glorious time for any collegiate student where the world is at your fingertips. You’re one year older, (hopefully) one year wiser, and the potential of a straight A semester is actually within reach! It’s a liberating time, filled with promise and endless possibilities…until you wake up one morning and realize you’ve slept through your 8am final.

If you’re like me, you like to think ahead. Make plans. Dreaming big is second nature and the journey towards reaching your goals is half the fun of getting there. Something I didn’t plan, however, is essentially crashing and burning this semester. Or becoming a newfound Belieber.

I know what you’re thinking: this article just lost ANY credibility it might’ve had before that last sentence.

But it’s the honest truth! As I found myself thinking up wild excuses to not attend my 3-hour Civics lecture, or procrastinating until the night before an exam to learn what Accounting actually even is, I also found Justin. And dang, we had a lot catching up to do.

Somehow this former tween idol turned harrowing Hollywood hooligan had blossomed into a refined musician, right below our unsuspecting noses! And I was a woman obsessed. I scoured the web (instead of studying, obviously), watching every funny video, late-night interview, and reading whatever articles I could find about Bieber 2.0.

How did I make it to 20 years without ever once giving him a chance? How did he so unceremoniously transform into such fascinating creature? But most importantly, how the heck did he make such a huge comeback from his “transitional phase,” so gracefully?

I’ve been going through my “transitional phase,” throughout my entire collegiate experience so far. And shockingly, my experiences didn’t seem to play out as smoothly as Justin’s. Classes got significantly harder, the assignments began to pile up, and naps became my new best friend.

But Justin forced me to reevaluate my priorities. And suddenly, I found my lost motivation. As the last few weeks of the semester rolled by, I cranked out those A’s I had originally promised myself: just me, my espresso, and Justin’s new album.

Now with finals wrapping up, and the holidays right around the corner, I find myself extremely appreciate of Justin Bieber’s sudden influence on my life. I’ve learned that it is perfectly acceptable to mess up miserably, as long as you learn from your mistakes and have a plan to move forward. If Justin could make a comeback, I can too…in the Spring Semester.

I’ve found a purpose again.

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.
