11 Instances In Which You Really Needed Meme Legend Gavin Thomas To Explain College

All college students can relate to this 7 year old on a spiritual level.

11 Instances In Which You Really Needed Meme Legend Gavin Thomas To Explain College

Sometimes college isn't all fun and games.

When it comes all nighters, gross dining hall food, piles of homework and assignments, we can relate to Gavin on a spiritual level.

1. Laying in bed, hoping to avoid two 5 page essays, 1 project, and a test you have to study for, along with other life responsibilities.

It all feels so worth it until the Netflix screen asks you if you're still there and you question your whole existence.

2. Getting a good grade on a paper you completely BS'd.

There are two types of students. There are the ones who go by the books and the ones who don't buy any books at all. Think about it.

3. Looking at your test once you realize none of the information was on the study guide.

When it feels like your professor betrayed you and wants you to fail.

4. When someone sits in your unassigned assigned seat in class and you're forced to sit somewhere else.

Even though we are adults and this is college, there are ground rules when it comes to seating. This is why we can't have nice things.

5. Weighing out your options for food in order to avoid the dining hall at all costs.

It's either Ramen, Kraft Mac and Cheese, or starve. Pick your poison.

6. Having a mid-life crisis and contemplating what you're doing with your life, if you're going to be successful, or if college is even worth it.

The idea of dropping out and becoming a hobo sounds better and better as each day passes while in college to be honest.

7. When you're trying to enjoy yourself and be happy, while also trying to balance work, assignments, a social life, food, and sleep.

Is this what adulting is like? If so, you can count me out.

8. Trying to get on your professors good side so your grade can go from an F to at least a C.

While also hoping your professor will overlook those 3 missing assignments and 5 absences when considering bumping up your grade.

9. When your family calls you asking how college is going.

Especially when your family calls during mid mental break-down and you have to play it cool, acting like you're having the time of your life in college.

10. Trying to look like a scholar in a 2 hour lecture class but realizing only 20 minutes has gone by.

After 20 minutes into the lecture, everything sounds gibberish and you contemplate if the professor would even notice if you just packed up and left. Who needs class anyways right?

11. When reality hits that you're basically an adult now with new responsibilities.

When we were younger, we couldn't wait to grow up. We didn't sign up for this.

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.
