Midterms are just undercover vampires sucking the life out of you

10 Places I Wish I Could Be Instead of Studying For Midterms

You know that time right around the middle of the semester that really makes you regret skipping all those classes to go get Chick-fil-A with your friends (okay nvm Chick-fil-A is bae) or showing up to class with your laptop just to spend an hour taking Buzzfeed quizzes. Yeah, you what I'm talking about. MIDTERM TIME! The time where the joy of spring is completely ruined by colleges everywhere. In honor of probably having to withdraw from most of my classes anyways, here are ten places I'd rather be than stuck in my dorm room with a mound of study guides.

1. In a bathtub full of Chic-Fil-A

Considering the long lines at Chic-fil-A are what made me 30 minutes late for class anyways, what better place to be than bathing in my misery with the love of my life.

2. Back in high school

Okay, maybe this is a stretch but honestly my high school only gave you an exam one time and that was at the end of the school year and you only had to take it if you had a 90 or below.

3. On a cruise ship heading anywhere besides Clemson University

Bahamas. Puerto Rico. Canada. Alaska. Mexico. Cruise me to Wal-Mart for all I care.

4. At a basketball game

Nobody knows this, but I taught Lebron all he knows.

5. In my bed binge watching Greys Anatomy

I don't want to move from my bed until I've finished watching every season of Greys Anatomy, which is never because the show never stops.

6. At the zoo

I literally rather be put in a cage with a hungry lion than study one more page of statistics

7. Running a marathon

If I'm dead I don't have to take the midterms. Logic.

8. Volunteering at an animal shelter

There is absolutely nothing in the world I want more than to be surrounded by a thousand puppies licking my worries away

9. Somewhere learning the square root of pi

It's math, so technically I'm still studying.

10. In a therapy session

Honestly, I'm probably going to need all the therapy I can get after I'm forced to drop out of college and become a mail man so why not get a head start.

I rather get my heart broken three times, thrown in a garbage can, forced to listen to Fergie at the Superbowl on repeat for the rest of my life, and become lactose intolerant than prepare for the most dreadful part of the semester for a college student.

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.

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.
