​The Last Few Days Of Sophomore Year

Bitter-sweet? Yea. Ready for summer? Absolutely.

​The Last Few Days Of Sophomore Year
Jonathan Borba

I was exhausted. We all were exhausted. But we were close to being finished with our Sophomore year—one somewhat more exhausting than the year prior. Due to this, we pushed through with the knowledge that this chapter would come to a close very soon.

Fast forward to a few days ago, the last day of my Sophomore year at Syracuse University. I consider my last day to be the day my last final was due, so although many of my friends were home, my other friend in fashion design and I were still exhausted as our last final was due on the Friday of finals week. I love fashion design, but oh my, it is exhausting.

I may have discussed this in a previous article but I hadn't had a nights sleep in eight straight days, alongside one of my friends who also chose to design a collection with multiple patterns. In fashion design, often times the more patterns you have equates to more time spent on your collection, and this was definitely the case. We spent our lives for that period taking hour long naps at The Warehouse or running home to try and squeeze in two hours of sleep before going directly back to The Warehouse to finish our collections. The most difficult part was the 18 credits I took this semester, adding to the assignments that needed to be completed during this period.

Besides the point that I was exhausted throughout the Sophomore year and especially throughout the end of it, I made it through—and I am beyond relieved to be done. My design collection, throughout the crazy eight-day journey, came out exactly as I envisioned it to, and with that, I am content.

Cheers to Sophomore year being completed, and here's to two more years at Syracuse University and for all, that's left to come!

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.
