"Let's wake up in the afternoon pretend that we got nothing to do."

inspiring kelly clarkson lyrics

The last 6-7 weeks of the semester as always the hardest to get through. Especially, if you're a senior who will never be back in a classroom after this. Here are some lyrics by Kelly Clarkson that will remind you that you're almost there:

1. "What doesn't kill you makes you STRONGER."

All these last few assignments and tests may feel completely pointless but remember, these things are only getting you one step closer to your diploma.

2. "Wanna feel the warm breeze. Sleep under a palm tree. Feel the rush of the oceanGet onboard a fast train. Travel on an jet plane, far away."

Pretty much everyday during class I just think about all the places I'd rather be. Like on a beach!

3. "No one can hold me back, I ain’t got time for that."

No matter what curve balls your professor throws at you, you don't care and just keep going.

4. "But you pay, you pay for it. You can't win, no."

Even though we pay for it and pay to be here, professors still try to act like we are in high school.

5. "For all I know is nothing's changed. Nothing ever will if I don't leave this place."

We are so burnt out at this point and know that our happiness will only return once these last few weeks are done.

6. "Oh, this is killing me. I need you to see, that somethings gotta change."

When your professor has 3 papers, 2 exams, a group project and whatever else due by the end of the semester...

7.  "Let's wake up in the afternoon pretend that we got nothing to do."

How you feel every morning when trying to get out of bed for class.

8. "Oh, I'm getting tired of believing. Even sicker of pretending. That it's not so bad, just wait it out."

All these years you have told your self that this isn't that bad or that it's almost over. But now that it is almost over your done telling yourself it's not that bad.

9. "Putting up with all the bullshit, it made me strong enough to do this."

Dealing with everything that has caused you to have setbacks or struggle, have only made you prepared to push through this last stretch.

10. "But Since you been gone I can breathe for the first time."

That final day of classes will be the best feeling. No more stress, it's all over.

It's the home stretch, you're almost there. You got 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.

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.
