You finally made it! It's been a bumpy ride with good times, bad times, and some down right miserable times, but you survived it all and only have one semester left to go. This last semester will be filled with a lot of emotions and nerves, but try to make the most of the experiences, enjoy it, and learn from it.

Every time you remember you're graduating this semester

Oh happy day! The last semester has finally arrived, and you can't wait for the big day.

Then remembering you have to get through the semester first

That diploma will not just be handed to you, though. You have to put in the work first. It's hard to be so close but yet, so far away.

It's a little bittersweet

Sure, you're excited about starting the next chapter, but there are some things you will miss. No more seeing you're friends everyday, no more discounted or free sports and events tickets, and no more sleeping late because you don't have to be there until 12:00.

But, you realize you don't have to take classes this summer

Summer classes are the worst. They are like fall and spring classes on steroids. Not having to take anymore is enough to make me want to do cartwheels, if I could do cartwheels.

But also wondering why you were crazy enough to decide to apply for graduate school

You just finished school why would you want to go back? Why can't you just get a job that pays a million dollars right off the bat? But, you know deep down it will be better in the long run to be more highly qualified.

Trying to find a job

You have to pay for that extra degree somehow, though, so you have to find a job too. Reading the job requirements makes you feel like you didn't learn anything the last four years to make you qualified for a job. How do they expect you to have seven years of experience when you just graduated?

Good luck on your last semester, and may you're grades be great and your future even greater!

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.
