Bye spring semester!

Leslie Knope’s 18 Motivational Tips For The End Of The Semester

The last few weeks of spring semester can be the most stressful and tiring time of the year. The end of spring semester means scrambling to type that 12-page research paper, cramming for cumulative finals and rushing to put together that project you have been procrastinating. These deadlines bring about all night study sessions, coffee at midnight and a constant state of stress and exhaustion. Summer is so close you can taste it, which makes you want the semester to be over even more. So who better to help you get through the last few weeks than Leslie Knope? Here’s 18 points of encouragement to help you push through the last month of the semester from Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope.

1. Listen to some music to get you pumped for the last days of class.

2. Sleep is for the weak.

3. Besides, pulling all-nighters can be fun!

4. Don’t worry, after the semester is over, you will catch up on much needed sleep.

5. Just think of all the things you can "treat yo self" with after this semester!

6. And if that doesn’t work, then think of more things.

7. Stay Positive! Even though it's chaotic now, you will get through this semester and everything will be ok.

8. Some finals are pretty simple.

9. Think of the winner you will be when you ace that paper.

10. If you give 100 percent and you can get a 100 percent.

11. You're like a white male US Senator.

12. Have some confidence in your abilities.

13. It doesn’t really matter if you fail calculus.

14. Have a horrible professor? Always keep in mind that course evaluations exist.

15. Just imagine all your hard work will pay off one day.

16. And always remember…

17. The end of a semester is cause for celebration.

18. Stay calm. The last day of school is almost here.

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.
