10 November Thoughts Every College Student Has, Without Fail

October is over and we are officially in the second to last month of the year - here's how we feel about it.

1. Where did October Go?!

It seems like just yesterday we were hanging fake cobwebs and spooky stickers in our dorm window. October came and went just as fast as my motivation to have perfect attendance did (sorry, Mom).

2. That would have been a great Halloween Costume

Ah, yes. Could've, should've, would've. We're so use to seeing the same costumes over and over again, but we're culprits of the same crime. It seems we always think of the best, funniest, wittiest Halloween costumes AFTER the Holiday has passed. Fingers crossed we remember them BEFORE next Halloween (but let's be honest, we probably won't).

3. Where do I vote, again?

With midterms right around the corner (midterm elections, that is), and with the vast majority of us being of legal voting age, we're all looking forward to helping to decide who our country's next legislators will be. There's just one problem: we have no clue where we're supposed to vote.

Thankfully, many of our universities have resources that tell us exactly where our polling places are (if you're a college student reading this who has yet to do so, please - for the love of God - register to vote).

4. I totally have time to bring my grades up

The semester JUST started less than two months ago - we have PLENTY of time to fix those less-than-perfect grades into ones we're proud to show out parents!

5. I am NOT taking morning or Friday classes next semester

Nope. Nope! Absolutely not. I will not sacrifice my sleep for an education. The same classes are offered at later times, I can just enroll in those instead. Snooze City, here I come!


Thanksgiving has arrived and were oh-so-thankful for the real, not crappy-dining-hall food that we are absolutely going to devour, come turkey day. Not to mention, we get to see our families and friends, AND stock up on cold weather (cringe) gear that we will be needing for the months to come.

7. Oh right, that New Years Resolution...

With two months left in the year, chances are you've given up on your resolution(s). If you haven't, all power to you! However, if you're like me, you're seeing this "failed" resolution as more of an "extended deadline." By this time next year, we will have surely fulfilled whatever the resolution was, right?

8. Holiday Season???

The holidays are... next month? Should we start buying gifts? How do we buy gifts when we're broke? How the heck is December here? Speaking of...

9. Wait, WHAT?!

DECEMBER?! So we have ONE MONTH to fix those non optimal grades AND schedule next semesters classes AND study for finals?!

10. You know what, I take it back.


My schedule didn't work out the way I wanted, so I have morning classes. I don't have time to fix all my grades, but C's get degrees. I'm terrified for finals, but where there's a will there's a way, right? At least I can eat my feelings in turkey and pie. Whatever, better luck next semester!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
