Registering For Classes Explained By Gifs
The Odyssey

Everyone hates that time of year where you need to register for your spring semester classes. It is honestly more stressful than anything I've ever done. The feelings I have toward this can only be accurately described with gifs.

1. Meeting with your adviser.

I personally hate group advising. I feel like I never get all my questions answered because my adviser is too busy with other students. Be lucky if you have one-on-one advising. Sometimes they are not the best of help because they are just as stressed out as you are, but they try their hardest to help you pick out what classes are best for you. It is just a lot to handle trying to pick out the right classes.

2. Picking the right professors and class times.

You have to figure out what time you want to take your classes because if you don't, it would be your luck that you are stuck with 8 am classes every day. Nobody wants that. I don't wish that on my worst enemy. If you do not look up information on your possible teacher you can get stuck with a professor that does not believe in extra credit, or even worse, no curves. A great source to look up information on professors at your school is You search by your college then narrow your search by looking up the name of the professor. You can find out that your best option just happens to be a professor that spits a lot when he talks, so just sit a few rows back and you will be okay. Way better than no curves or extra credit.

3. The dreaded day.

You haven't been able to sleep, it has been worrying you completely. All you have been doing is thinking, "What if that class is full?" "What if I don't get the professor I want?" "What if I have a panic attack and have to go to the hospital and completely miss registering for classes because I am freaking out so much. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO??" Oh, is that last part just me? You can be lucky and register during a time where you do not have class. Or you can have luck like mine and your registration time is during not only class time, but it's test day. I won't even be able to concentrate. I'll be freaking out.

4. The final countdown

This is it. The only thing preventing you from your future is a few clicks of a mouse. I hope you have the best of luck in picking your classes. You may not be able to get what you want, but there is always next semester. You are prepared, you have picked out your classes beforehand and have come up with your worst-case scenario classes (those 8 am classes I mentioned). You may be extremely lucky and get exactly what you need. Or you can be screwed and not get into any class that you need because it is full. It is all a part of registering for classes. So good luck to you.

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.
