Registering For Classes Is Harder Than Is Should Be

Registering For Classes Is The Absolute Worst

I speak from experience and it is bad experience.


The worst thing about college is planning for classes. There are a good amount of rough things that occur during college, like classes and weather and food, occasionally. However, The absolute worst thing about college is planning your classes for the next semester. I know that I probably don't make any sense at all right now, but I also don't ever make a lot of sense and I always have something to complain about. It's one of my best personality traits. And one of the worst, but I'm the one writing the article and I get to say what I want to say in this.

I have a reason for disliking doing this. Registering for classes the next semester is trying to plan for a person that you are not. You occasionally magically think that you will be able to wake up daily for a nine am class. I did that once, and I almost dropped out of college. That's a little bit dramatic but also a little bit true. After that, there was the time that I decided to have class FOR EIGHT HOURS ON TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS SO I ONLY HAD CLASS TWO DAYS A WEEK AND ALMOST DIED. Registering for classes is making decisions for a future you that you cannot make.

You also have to decide whether or not you are going to enjoy the classes that you are taking. It sounds like a great idea to take three English classes because you are an English major and all that, but having them in a row on the same days sometimes is terrible.

A certain class sounds great in the description, but then you take the class and it might be terrible.

It's deciding how many classes to take now so you know how many classes that you will take later on and it's a lot of pressure. If you mess up you might not be able to graduate on time and that is terrible and very stressful. And then you might not be able to get into the class that you want to take and plans get messed up AND IT IS A LOT OF PRESSURE.

If no one can tell, I need to register for classes soon and I am already stressed. I need April 1st to be over to my classes are registered frond I am in the classes that I want and life is good again. Also, I made some poor decisions when registering for classes last semester and if you ever want to know how to not register for classes, just ask me.

To The Girl Who Isn't Graduating On Time, It Won't Feel Any Less Amazing When You Do

Graduating is something to be proud of no matter how long it takes you.


To the girl who isn't graduating college "on time,"

I promise, you will get there eventually, and you will walk across that graduation stage with the biggest smile on your face.

You may have a different journey than the people you grew up with, and that is OKAY. You may have some twists and turns along the way, a few too many major changes, a life change, you may have taken most of a semester off to try to figure your life out, and you're doing the best you can.

Your family and your friends don't think less of you or your accomplishments, they are proud of your determination to get your degree.

They are proud of the woman you are becoming. They don't think of you as a failure or as someone any less awesome than you are. You're getting your degree, you're making moves towards your dreams and the life that you have always wanted, so please stop beating yourself up while you see people graduating college on time and getting a job or buying a car.

Your time will come, you just keep doing what you need to do in order to get on that graduation stage.

Your path is set out for you, and you will get there with time but also with patience. The place you're at right now is where you are supposed to be. You are going to thrive and you are going to be the best version of you when you graduate and start looking for a company that you will be proud to work for. Don't look on social media and feel less than, because at least you're still working towards your degree that you are finally passionate about. You will be prepared. You will be ready once the time comes and you cross the stage, move away, and start your journey in whatever field you're going into.

Don't question yourself, and be confident in your abilities.

With love,

A girl who isn't graduating on time

Goodbye School, Hello Real World

I'm ready for ya!


It's starting to hit me.

I've been in school, year after year, since kindergarten. Maybe even pre-school!

Now, I'm about to graduate with my bachelors in communication and I couldn't be more proud of myself. I'll say it. I often sugarcoat it or suppress it but d*mn it. I'm going to applaud myself. It was hard work. It took a lot of motivation, determination, (caffeine), and willpower to get to where I am today. I worked my ass off.

That being said, I can't help but think... What is life without due dates? What is life like without scrambling to turn in an assignment that's due at 11:59 PM? What is life like with actual sleep? Sleep? I don't know her.

Like I keep telling my boyfriend and my parents, I don't have it all figured out. At least not right now. But I will, and I'm in no rush to land my dream job right now. If anything, I want to take a year to myself. I want to travel. I want to sleep in if I d*mn well please! I want to read as many books as I want. I want to write till my fingers fall off (OK, maybe not that).

You get the jist.

I'm free. I can do and be whatever I want. And you know what? That's terrifying.

I'm lost. I've followed this structure for so long. Now what?

I don't have all the answers yet. But for now, at least right at this very moment, I'm so thankful to have been able to receive such an amazing education. And to be able to say I'm graduating with my bachelors in communication at 21 is an accomplishment in itself.
