Procrastination At Its Finest

Oh, I know you have procrastinated at least once.

Procrastination At Its Finest

Procrastination. Yes, we have all done it. Sometimes, I am the queen of procrastination. I mean, maybe I procrastinated a little on this article. Anyways, procrastination comes in all shapes and sizes such as scheduling your yearly teeth cleaning, studying for your midterm, writing your semester reflection paper, and reading a 100 page article that was assigned 2 weeks ago. Procrastination hits you at the worst times. Trust me, I have been there. You want to hang with friends instead of finishing your homework. You just don't have the energy at 1 a.m. to finish that last chapter of your assigned reading. The following are the stages of procrastination:

1. You just don't care.

2. You accept procrastination will never go away.

You will always procrastinate in everything. Examples include buying a winter jacket, Christmas gifts, choosing a major, and choosing your future career.

3. Yes, you will have a panic attack.

Just take a deep breath. Concentrate on what you need to get done.

4. ...

Yep, you just had one while reading this article. Now go finish what you need to do and don't procrastinate.

5. You don't want to do anything.

You have no energy anymore. Everything else seems better than staying in on a Saturday and finishing your homework.

6. You choose sleep over everything.

Sleep is more important than homework.

7. Then, your conscious talks to you.

It comes to a time when you need to try not to procrastinate. Try to fix your procrastination habits by limiting your time on Netflix, making a check list and a time limit, and setting goals.

8. Finally, you have overcome procrastination. Doesn't it feel good?

Remember, procrastination is normal and happens to everyone especially in college. Professors understand. They have been there too. Procrastination will happen, but don't let it get to the last minute like at 11:58 p.m. when your paper is due at midnight.

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.
