The Polar Vortex At Syracuse University Summed Up In 10 GIFs

A polar vortex has been traveling through the Midwest making schools like Syracuse and Wisconsin reach temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius with the wind chill. If you haven't already noticed. But unlike every other school, Syracuse still had classes. Yes, that's right we had to walk to class in -30-degree weather. So this article is for everyone who attends Syracuse University. At least we are all suffering together.

1. Checks weather 

Excuse me what. When you realize its colder in the Midwest than Antarctica... thats a no from me for leaving my bed.

2. -30 degrees and a blizzard......snow day??!!

When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Aka when its -30 degrees outside give us a snow day.

3. Checking your phone at 6:30 am just to see that there are still classes

We were all so hopeful Kent. Why you gotta play me like that.... simply rude

4. When ESF doesn't have school but Kent decides to keep Syracuse open

Pissed. Im ready to transfer schools.

5. What the hell 

Making the treck to class.

6. When your teachers say class is optional because its cold af

When optional means cancelled. Turns alarm off immediately.

7. @Kent 

Kent. We are still salty. Look up the definition of a snow storm.

8. To all the teachers who cancelled class

To the select teachers who decided to cancel class we thank you. Thank you for prioritizing our health because yes, -30 degree weather is too cold to walk outside in.

9. When its negative 30 degrees but there are afters....

Complains about having to walk to class but goes to happy hour and then afters. Priorities of a college student....

10. When its goes from -35 degrees to 50 degrees

Get ready to whip out the sunscreen and shorts.

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.
