You are so much more than that grade.

1. You are more than your grade.

I know this is very hard to accept, because these are the grades that actually matter. Grades and school are extremely important, but it's not healthy to shrink your entire being to one grade in one class. You are so much more than that grade.

2. You are loved.

It's important to remember that you have people in your life that love you and will do anything to help you. While they can't take a test or finish a project for you, they can just be there to listen to you rant, and sometimes that's all you need.

3. Don't sweat the small stuff.

This is also really hard to accept, especially when there's so much weight given to the last assignments of the semester in college. It might seem like every problem you're faced with right now is impossible. Just take a step back and breathe.

4. Take a break.

Taking a break from what you're doing and coming back to it later with a fresh set of eyes will provide so much clarity. You'll be able to find a solution that was sitting right there all along. This will help so much because you'll be much more calm and ready to tackle the problem or assignment.

5. Everything will be worth it, soon.

Remember that while you're extremely stressed out right now and you might not have everything figured out, everything will be worth it. In a few years, all of your angst and stress will be a distant memory, but a constant reminder of what you had to do to get to where you are.

6. Even if it doesn't turn out the way you wanted, there is always a way.

If you don't get a good final grade in the class, there are ways to fix that. If you don't get accepted to your major, you were meant to be somewhere else; you just have to find it. If you get set back a semester or two, that's perfectly fine, because it's your degree and you work for it at your own pace. It's not the smart people that are successful; it's the persistent ones.

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.
