Five Phrases Every College Student Loves To Hear

There are just certain things that can really warm a college student's heart.

Five Phrases Every College Student Loves To Hear

1. "There's Leftover Pizza In The Fridge If You Want It."

No matter the hour, no matter the brand, no matter the toppings, the answer to pizza is always “yes.” One of the most glorious things to hear as a college student is that there is free pizza being offered up. I cannot tell you how many times I have walked into my living room to be greeted with pizza and for me to almost break into tears. Now, brand is a matter of preference, but I think we can all agree that Papa's is the mother of delivery pizzas (preferably a large, thin crust cheese pizza with extra sauce). There is a special place in my heart for those who give me leftover’s the little things in life.

2. "Anna, drumsticks in the caf today!"

And no, I do not mean a turkey or chicken leg. I mean the ice cream cone of the Heavens; the sweet treat gifted to man by God’s grace: a sugary waffle cone filled with frozen fudge and creamy vanilla ice cream topped with more fudge and the perfect amount of sprinkled peanuts. I have been all the way across campus before and had someone approach me with news of drumsticks in the caf, needless to say I got a drumstick that day. There is no pre-made, artificial dessert more decadent than a Blue Bunny drumstick.

3. "Dude, I really like your hair."

College is one of times where you have to start choosing priorities. For me, a normal morning may look like this:

I get up around 8:27 a.m. for my 9 a.m. class, put my contacts in, and then apply the absolute minimum amount of makeup I can get by with. By this time, it is nearing the time I need to leave, so I quickly dress myself in some Chuck Taylors and some combination of a Goodwill outfit. I find myself with two minutes to spare; do I fix my hair or grab some thin mints from the freezer (there is no other way to eat it)? The obvious answer is the thin mints. So I rush to class, thin mints in hand and hair a hot mess – so worth it.

That being said, compliments are still nice to hear. So when I am at work and someone compliments my hair (which I more than likely did not fix that morning), I really appreciate their kindness, because I know in all reality it does not look very good.

4. "Since everyone did so poorly on the test, I am going to factor in a 10 point curve."

These are the moments where grace flows like a river in those infamous classes that almost kill us. Teachers that give curves automatically receive bountiful brownie points. I would like to give a special shout-out to you beautiful teachers who do curve tests and projects; you have my heart. Curves are one of those things that make you feel like Christmas morning; they're gingerbread cookies iced with red and green frosting with a side of peppermint egg nog.

5. "I am cancelling class for today."

As to be expected, we will save the best for last. Imagine yourself running on 4 hours of sleep, fighting a head-cold and waking up to find an email from your 8 a.m. professor saying the words “I have decided to cancel class.” Praise the Lamb and the giver of all things good, there will be more sleep for you today. Walking on sunshine is an understatement for how you feel in this moment.

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.
