We Will Be OK During This COVID-19 Pandemic, It's Just A Waiting Game

What are you waiting for during these times besides trying to wait and see if things get better? This is a good excuse to focus on yourself, and finish that project at home you always wanted to do.

I believe that during these times of panic and anxiety, there can be a lot of introspection of how people really are. I mean, come on, fighting over toilet paper in the store? Hard pass.

At least the memes make those people seem bearable.

Seeing what people do in the public over this virus just goes to show how selfish people really are. Although, I will say I have seen some acts of kindness and awareness. People do notice how the elderly need assistance and help each other out.

The bright side over the obnoxious panic is that people are being more aware of their community and how they can make a difference.

Sure, I can understand the anxiety to stay at home. I bounce off the walls if I stay inside too long. But, it gives me a good excuse to really interact with my family, finish some tasks or chores and try some new hobbies I was curious about.

If being at home is that unbearable, at least challenge yourself to try something new.

Some of us may gain some weight, develop drinking problems, lose weight, get really obnoxious or become really distant with one another.

Well, news flash: you're not alone.

I know the news and media are saying that this pandemic may last until the summer, but I think the worst of it will only last for a couple of weeks to a few months at most.

It's corny to say, but things do heal in time. Being as anxious as I am, I hate waiting, but that's the cards we were dealt. I certainly won't cry about it. I plan to be productive and make some blueprints in the next chapter of my life.

It's just a matter of taking one step at a time. This is the perfect opportunity for me to focus on what I really like and who I really am.

I plan to run more, do at home yoga on Youtube, draw and paint, finish cleaning a room that has been neglected, go through my budget (as much as I hate doing that) and just really sit back and think.

Of course, I can do this due to being done with classes (could not have been better timing).

Hopefully, many people during this time are going through some introspection and seeing how others act as well as themselves. IF we can all get through it and understand each other, this pandemic will blow over in no time, or at least, the time will fly by and we won't even notice.

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.
