The 6 Faces Of Freshman Year, As Shown By Jimmy Fallon

You may hide it in your actions, but we can see it in your face.

The 6 Faces Of Freshman Year, As Shown By Jimmy Fallon

Freshman year of college comes with many emotions. You go from being anxious on move-in day, partially wanting your parents to stay there with you, to being excited and over-ambitious the next week. However as the year goes on, the same emotions seem to repeat themselves. There are good times, there are not-so-good times, and there is everything in-between. However, there are six emotions that seem to sum up freshman year of college pretty well.

1. Nervous

Freshman year of college is scary. New city, new friends, and a whole new school. Not to mention you're parent-less now, so you're on your own. Lots of nerves during the first week of college, and you may think to yourself, "Oh God, what did I get myself into."

2. Excited/Ecstatic

After a week or so of college, you feel like you've got this. You walk around campus saying hi to your buddies acting like you own the place. You think to yourself, "Hey, college isn't so bad -- college is fun!"

3. Regretful

4. Stressed

Then the year goes on and you realize that your stressed about almost everything. That point at the end of second semester where you might lose it. School is hard, finals suck, you don't have a date to formal yet, and your probably going to fail your chemistry midterm on Monday. Again, you're realizing that college is hard.

5. Sad

Before you know it, freshman year is over. You have to say goodbye to the people that were strangers just one year ago, but have now become some of your best friends. Saying goodbye sucks.

6. Happy

But then you get home and you realize that your bed is much comfier than your dorm bed, dinning hall food is poisonous, and it's only a short three months until you get to see your college besties again. Plus there are things called FaceTime and group message so that you will never really have to miss them. That should put a smile on your face.

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.
