Why The Back To School Season Is The Best Part Of The Year

This article likely contains some of the least popular opinions that you will read all week.

Why The Back To School Season Is The Best Part Of The Year

Yes, you read that title correctly. "Why The Back To School Season Is The Best Part Of The Year".

"But Makenzee," you might be saying to yourself, "with all the complaining that you do about various things during the school year, how can you say that going back is the best part of the whole year?! What about Halloween?! What about Christmas?! WHAT ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?! What about all of the other good, non-school related things that you've written about before?!"

Well, allow me to explain myself.

The back to school season is amazing for many different reasons. Sure, I often complain about certain things, like finals week, assignment deadlines, and massive research papers, but we have to take the good with the bad. The good in this case being the ability to see many of my friends who I haven't seen in months. In many cases, they've moved beyond the realm of "friends" and into the realm of my "family". Given the fact that I spend a majority of the year with them, it only makes sense that I would miss them deeply when we're separated.

My next reason for claiming that the back to school season is the best part of the year is going to be considered "controversial" by some, and I'm sure many will disagree with me on this, but it's my article so I can write basically anything that I want.
I like the back to school season because I like to learn. I like going back to classes to learn about something completely new, or to continue building my knowledge about certain topics. Yes, I often have my complaints about how these things are done, but as long as they are being done, I am content to go through these things to the best of my ability. Honestly, there are so many courses and topics covered at school that I would probably never encounter on my own,which is part of why I love coming back to school.

One of the reasons that the back to school season is the best time of year to me is because it finally allows me the sense of independence that I am not afforded at home. After having a second ankle surgery in May, I have been painfully dependent on the aid of other people for many of the most basic tasks. As someone who likes to be as independent as possible, this has been one of the roughest summers in recent memory. Now that I am back at school, I am significantly less dependent on other people and I am able to show how independent I can be.

So there you have it. The back to school season is the time of year marked by some of the biggest and most desired changes in my life. I get to see my friends again, I get to learn so much more than I would on my own, and I get to be independent again. It's the best part of the year for me because it changes everything.

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.
