Post-Holiday Break Emotions Told By 'The Vampire Diaries'

Your rest and relaxation time is over, time to go back to class.

Post-Holiday Break Emotions Told By 'The Vampire Diaries'
The Vampire Diaries

Is it just me, or did the last month just speed by? Whether your break consisted of Netflix binges, hanging out with hometown friends, or catching up on sleep, it has unfortunately come to an end. The CW's hit show "The Vampire Diaries'" characters often deal with times of difficult struggle, terrible sacrifices, and excruciating pain. Sounds just like going back to college, right?

Goodbye, home-cooked meals.

Back to Ramen noodles and cans of soup. If this isn't the bitter reality of college, I'm not sure what is. The last month was filled with family gatherings which, of course, are usually centered around food. But now it's time to go back to the "poor college kid" lifestyle.

Having to do...(wait for it)

No more wasting the days away without doing the W word. We must now submerge ourselves into an epitome of a black hole, commonly referred to as "doing homework." Just the phrase alone causes chills to run down my spine.

Constantly considering dropping out of college.

I think I would be perfect as a professional Netflix binge-er. Plus, it's only ten dollars a month instead of tuition prices! However, I doubt your parents want you living on their couch for the next 40 years.

Having to wait your turn for showering.

Ahh, taking a relaxing bath with a luscious bath bomb is the best way to relax. But not anymore! For students living on campus, we must now wait our turn to use the community showers to bathe. Plus, if your residence hall is anything like mine, you have random things all over the counters and walls of the bathrooms. Boogers, weird gloves, foreign hair products, and vegetables....don't ask. Just don't forget your shower shoes...ew.

Dealing with overly pushy professors.

How many homework assignments can possibly be assigned in one week? On top of exams and readings? I'm expected to have time to do all of this PLUS sleep, eat, shower, and socialize?

Your phone is constantly blowing up with email notifications.

Professors, fellow students, clubs, Greek life, the bookstore, everybody wants to randomly welcome you back and tell you about random events. But you were used to a lifetime of solitude for the last month. And frankly, you don't care that the next chess club meeting is this Tuesday at 4.

You finally are reunited with your roommate and friends!

You hate to admit it, but you are excited to go back. You can't wait to catch up with all your college buds and see what crazy things they did over the last month.

Together, we can pull through this.

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.
