Oktoberfest As Told By Spongebob

Thank goodness it only happens once a year.

Oktoberfest As Told By Spongebob

Ah yes, it's that magical time of the year again in La Crosse- Oktoberfest. Nothing will ever quite be able to sum up exactly what happens here, but Spongebob makes everything better. So if your parents are wondering what this weekend was like, or you're trying to explain it to your friends who don't go here, hopefully this helps. After years of this crazy tradition, I feel that a few of these scenarios may be a little bit too familiar for some people.

It's Friday afternoon, you have one class left, and you're just sitting there patiently waiting for your professor to let you out early like...

Your last class finally finishes and you rush home to get ready for the weekend's festivities. This means it's time to grab a drink, throw on your new Oktoberfest bro tank, and grab your beer helmet.

You're ready! You're ready! You're ready! Your friends are finally all out of class, or have all arrived and it's time. You can now join the rest of the drunken population that you've been listening to since this morning.

Things start out relatively normal, but within the first few hours your crazy party animal starts coming out. You can't contain your excitement and you get swept up in the craziness that is Oktoberfest. This stage usually happens at some random person's house that you've just happened to wander into.

At some point in the night, someone you know will probably be injured. At the very least you will see at least one person being hauled away in an ambulance. Cue "My Leg!".

On the way back from downtown you stop at Toppers for some pizza. After waiting for an obscenely long time, you finally get your pizza and head back to where you're crashing to turn in for the night.

Saturday morning you wake up and immediately feel like death. All you want is water and some food to help bring you back to life.

After finally getting up and getting ready, it sinks in that you have to fest again today.

You look back through the pictures on your phone from last night. You don't remember taking half of them, and there are more than a few selfies with people you've never seen before.

You and your friends decide to go to the parade because it's a yearly tradition. Every year you wonder why it's so early and try to pick out all of the hungover people. You find a few people that look like Patrick. There's also a few people that are probably still drunk.

By the end of Saturday most everyone's passed out, or burnt out but theres still a few people going hard.

By early Sunday morning, also known as the end of Oktoberfest, the city of La Crosse pretty much is in a state of disrepair. There are still a few people wandering the streets drunk and oblivious that the party is over. You're just praying that your car didn't get flipped or damaged.

Sunday afternoon you wake up and look out your window. There isn't a soul to be seen. As you reflect on the weekend and all of the great memories you realize just how fun it was to take part in this special occasion. You are also thankful that it only happens once a year.

The whole weekend sounds like a lot of hooplah, but by Monday, you're already counting down the days until next year.

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.
