My Thoughts About Graduation (As Told By New Girl)

My Thoughts About Graduation (As Told By New Girl)

Graduation is approaching, and I'm personally super stressed! Granted, it's an exciting time but it can also be a time where you constantly think about where your life is going. Now that part is scary - especially when you don't have a set plan. I thought my plan was to take a six-month break, apply to more school, then go back. But lately, I've been feeling more go with the flow and not wanting to have a set plan. But who knows? Maybe I'll stick to the plan or something better will come around.

To describe my general feelings towards Graduation - I've compiled my thoughts in the form of New Girl memes. Why does New Girl always seem to explain life so well?

1. When your employers ask you "How's school?" But won't give you a day off for homework.

2. Talking yourself into going to class rather than feeling the love of your blanket.

3. When your mom calls to check on your mental state.

4. When people ask why it's taking you so long to graduate...

5. Going out when you should actually be studying

6. Explaining why you are constantly tired.

7. Trying to decipher what your future may hold.

8. Realizing how fab your grades are looking.

9. Sending out your graduation invitations like...

10. Taking a step back and realizing it's okay to go where life takes you sometimes - be patient.

Don't stress. Everything will happen as it needs to. You do not need to have your life completely figured out right now. Go with the flow. Live your life. You have your entire life to be an adult. You've got 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.

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.
