"Parks and Rec" may be one of the world's most genius shows, and I think it's so great because everyone can relate to it in some way or another.

Especially college students.

Here are 38 ways Parks and Rec may just some up the life of a college student.

1. Literally Having No Idea What The F*ck is Going On Half Of the Time

2. Listening to Your Family and Friends *awful* Political Views, And Figuring Out How To Tell Them That Their Views Are *awful* Without Being Too Mean

3. Alcohol being your Best Friend

4. But Also The Devil...

5. Getting An "F" Back On An Exam You Thought You Did Great On

6. ... And Seeing Your Classmate Got An A On It

7. Wanting To Go To The Bars With Your Friends But Knowing You Have A 15 Page Paper Due at Midnight

8. Rushing To Finish A Paper That You Knew About for Two Months

9. Knowing Summer Break Is Coming Up But Continuing To Eat Like Garbage Because Life's Too Short

10. Staying Up All Night To Finish Homework

11. Watching Classmates Presentations And Wondering What The Hell They Were Thinking

12. Being So Stressed All The Time That Even Your Poops Aren't Normal

13. Actually Getting A Full Night's Sleep And Having No Idea What To Do With Yourself

14. Sitting In An Exam And Someone's Phone Keeps Buzzing

15. Feeling Accomplished After Finishing One Classes Homework But Realizing You Still Have 3 Other Classes To Do And It's Already Midnight

17. When a professor signs homework over break

18. Getting An "A" On That Paper You COMPLETELY Bullshitted

19. When You're Having A Really Hard Day And Just Need To Talk To Your Mom

20. Networking And Just Trying REALLY HARD

21. Taking Naps Is Your #1 Hobby

22. Debating Every Single Day If It'd Be Worth It To Just Jump Out In Front Of A Car At The Crosswalk

23. Doing Everything In Your Power To Avoid Talking To Literally Anyone

24. Seeing That Guy You Hooked Up With At The Bar... Again

25. Trying Really Hard To Seem Like College Is Making Your Brain Grow Instead of Shrink

26. Literally Just Being A Walking Train Wreck

28. When That Really Hot Guy In Class Decides To Sit Next To You

29. When The PowerPoint Ends 15 Minutes Early In Lecture, And Instead of Letting You Out Early, The Prof Starts The Slides For Next Class

30. Just Trying To Fix Your Hair But Then Getting Called On

31. When Someone Wants To Have A Conversation Before 9 AM

32. Constantly Being Asked What The Plan Is After Graduation

33. Literally Just Not Having Enough Hours In The Day

34. Seeing "lil Tay" and "WOAH Vicky" On Your Timeline And Wondering What Happened To The World

35. Looking In The Mirror Before Going Out And Realizing You Look BANGINNNNN'

36. Getting Assigned A Group Project *cringes*

37. Waking Up On Monday Morning And Thinking You'd Rather Get Hit By A Bus Then Deal With The Day

38. Knowing That All of This Hard, Crazy Work Is All Going To Pay Off In The End

Maybe we love Parks and Rec so much because even situations get sticky, everything always works out.

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.

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.
