Planning For The 30 Days Of April As A College Student, As Told By Jim Halpert

April showers bring... mental breakdowns?

Planning For The 30 Days Of April As A College Student, As Told By Jim Halpert

The flowers are blooming, but your GPA is dying. Birds are chirping, but you're crying. Spring is in the air, but so are tests, due dates, assignments, and mental breakdowns.

I mean, yea, April is great and all, but for us, college kids it's basically torture. We can taste the sweet freedom of summer, but we still have 30 excruciatingly long days until May.

But you know what they say, "April Showers bring...mental breakdowns?" If you're one of those college students struggling to get through this month, don't worry, Jim Halpert knows exactly what you're going through.

1. When you realize it's April and you have a million due dates coming up.

2. When you have literally a million things to do and your friends ask if you're coming to t-shirt night.

3. When someone asked how you did on that big exam you were worried about.

I failed, but that's none of your business.

4. When your professors just keep adding more assignments on top of existing assignments.

5. Trying to stay awake after pulling your 3rd all-nighter in a row.

6. Laughing at all of your professor's corny jokes in hopes that he'll curve your final grade.

7. And then he doesn't.

So what am I supposed to do now?

8. When you think about changing your major to something that requires less work.

9. Then realizing that you're basically stuck at this point.

10. Anytime someone asks how school's going you're just like

...can we like not talk about this?

11. When it's 11:54 and you remember you have an assignment due at 11:59.

12. When you're trying to figure out how you're going to pick your grades up by the end of the month.

13. When that one kid who hasn't been to class all semester finally shows up and sits in your seat.

14. Realizing that maybe you're just not cut out for college.

*googles how to be a millionaire without a college degree*

14. When you sit down to take an exam and don't the answer to the first 25 questions.

15. When you're trying not to have a mental breakdown in public.

16. When you get the results back on an assignment you half-assed and they're actually not that bad.

17. When it REALLY hits you that you have just four weeks to save your GPA.

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.
