10 Things You've Already Done If You're Excited To Go Back To College

If you're not excited to go back to college, you probably picked the wrong school.

When you're younger, you probably wished summer could last forever. By the time you're a college student though, I'm sure you're counting down the days until summer ends and you can return to your college town. Being home with your family is always great, but if you're like me, by August you've definitely done these ten things because you can't contain your excitement for the semester to come!

1. Gone dorm or apartment shopping


I always seem to start shopping way, way too early. I get so excited thinking about the new space to come that I just can't wait until August to start shopping.

2. You have a packing list


My packing list seems to grow every day. I'm constantly thinking of more things I need for my upcoming school year.

3. You have a Pinterest board dedicated to dorm decor


A whole section of your Pinterest is dedicated to organization, decor ideas, and things to buy for your apartment or dorm.

4. You've made a group chat with your roommates


If you're living with your best friends like I am, moving in can be that much more exciting!

5. You've perfected your schedule


Every year I try hundreds of combinations of classes to get the perfect schedule: no really late night classes, no really early morning classes, no Friday classes. It seems impossible, but it just takes some playing around and constant obsessing over to figure it out.

6. You've spent way too much time watching move in/college vlogs on youtube


Yes, I like watching other people vlog about moving into their apartments for hours on end. I know it's silly, but it makes me more excited and gives me some great ideas for when I move into mine!

7. You've looked into clubs you can join on campus


Whether your someone who has never been in a college club before or you're in five, you're probably always tempted by the hundreds of options at your university.

8. You've already started planning for the upcoming semester


I think I purchased my planner in June, and I have already filled it out for the upcoming year. It's always great to get ahead and organized!

9. You bring up your school every chance you get


Yes, constantly being asked what school you go to and about your major can get irritating at times. But most of the time, you'd love any excuse to brag about your school to strangers.

10. You're counting down the days until your move in date


33 days until move in... 32 days until move in... 31 days until move in...

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.
