Remember To Call Your Mom and Dad When You're At School

We make so much time for people while we are at school, but I think we could make more time for our parents.

Give your mom and dad a call often while you're at school because it will mean so much to them.

Whenever I go back to school, it's so easy to get swept into the busyness of campus, school, and all my friends at school. There is so much going on and so much to do that I always seem to doing something or running somewhere. We make so much time for people while we are at school, but I think we could make more time for our parents.

My parents are like my rock. I value the relationship we have and all that they have done for me over the years. I want to still feel close to them even when I'm a state away. I want to do a better job of staying in touch with them while I'm at school.

This past weekend I went home and I had so much fun being able to hang out with my parents for the weekend. We got dinner and watched the Badger Football game together. All the time we got to spend together reminded me of how close I am to them when I'm at home, but also how distant I feel when I'm at school.

I want to be better at keeping in touch with them over the school year. I don't want to rely on texting because that is easy and not as personal as a call. I want to call both of them more. I talk to my mom a good amount, but it's my dad I could give a call to more often. From communicating more, I will feel more in touch with them and how everything is at home, which is always a good reminder of home.

I know how much my parents appreciate it when I give them a call just to check in or see what's up at home. And in turn, I love to hear how everything is going at home, how my extended family is doing, and how my ivory lab is doing. I just talked to my dad today and he told me it's snowing in Minnesota, which is sad because I want a Fall season before Winter. Even if its a 5 minute chat while I'm on my way to class, talking to my parents always makes me feel good.

I know that parents miss their kids when they go to school. And as students even though we have a lot of things to do with school and friends, it's important to make time to call and check in on your parents because they miss you when you're gone. While it may be nice because the house might be quieter and cleaner, they definitely miss hearing your voice, so give them a call to make their day.

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.
