Procrastination Nation

That moment you just make deadline.

Procrastination Nation

We've all been in that moment, when we suddenly look at the time and realize that our assignment is due within the hour. It's this intense and crazy period of time where the entire world just seems to rush by. In that single moment, one can't even begin to imagine how he or she can make the deadline in time.

1. It all begins with that moment you receive the assignment.

If only it actually disappeared forever...

4. But, it's still there hanging above your head.

It should be on your to-do list, however its fallen too far behind.

5. As the weeks go by you eventually forget about it.

But, the assignment hasn't forgotten you.

6. It comes back just in the nick of time to bite you in the back.

It really is a painful experience.

7. Although the reminder is necessary, it seems as if time has gone by too quickly.

You look at the calendar and think to yourself there is no way today is the deadline.

8. The calendar must be wrong.

You check again and again, but to no prevail for the calendar is correct.

9. In an instant you get started on your assignment.There seems as if there is no way it can be done.

11. It's as if time is speeding up just so you won't complete it.

Time just won't take a break to pause for a second.

12. So, you end up working up a storm.

Your weak attempts fail quickly.

14. Yet, suddenly in a spirt of energy you seem to be getting more and more done.

It's as if you are actually going to finish.

15. There's barely a minute left and you hit the submit button.

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.
