As this new semester starts, try to stay positive and remember just a few things.

1. Professors are there to help

If you are worried about a class and think you might struggle, talk to your professor. They are there to help you learn and teach you. They have office hours and you can set up meeting times to get extra help.

2. Your mental health is important

Your mental health is just as important as your academics and school work, if not more so. Make sure to take time each week to check in with yourself and make sure that you are mentally healthy. You can't be successful if you aren't mentally well.

3. Studying sooner rather than later can relieve stress

If you start studying early and keep up with the topics in your classes, then it will save you stress as midterms and finals start to come up. It will also help you be more prepared for any exams, tests, and projects.

4. Keep track of dates

Write down all the dates of projects, papers, and homework that you will have to do. This will help you prepare and plan out your weeks. Knowing all your due dates can take immense stress off of you. Preparation is key.

5. Think about what study methods work for you and focus on those

It isn't helpful to study in ways that don't help you prepare or remember what you studied. If you do study, do it in an effective way. This again helps you prepare and actually feel better about your classes.

6. Don't exhaust yourself

If you start to feel overwhelmed or like you are doing too much, then take a step back. Only focus on exactly what you have to do. This allows you to have some time to yourself and take a minute if you need one. Don't over-commit yourself to activities and stretch yourself too thin.

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.
