Senior Year: As Told By GIF's

It's definitely as scary as everyone says it is.

Senior Year: As Told By GIF's
The Consummated Dabbler

Beginning college is a scary process; you move away from home, have to make new friends and start planning your future. Finishing college, however, is downright terrifying. You are no longer simply planning for the future, but you are about to enter said future. You have to start thinking about grad school, where you will live when you graduate and where you want to jumpstart your career. To make a stressful situation more entertaining, let's go through the stages of your senior year of college.

When you realize this is probably the last time you'll move back into your apartment

From moving in to your dorm freshman year to moving in to different apartments, it may have been a hassle but it's sad when you don't have that to look forward to anymore.

And that your classes are going to get a lot more challenging.

You're taking senior-level classes now that probably require a lot more outside-work and studying, and you actually have to learn everything you're being taught because you'll be using it.

But hopefully, they finally have something to do with your major,

Thankfully, you aren't taking freshman and sophomore-level core classes so you can get interested in your classes and learn how to apply them to your jobs.

Of which you might still be iffy about.

Because who really knows which track to take?

Then, someone asks you "what exactly do you want to do with your life?


And you can't give them a better answer than "I don't know."

Does anyone have a legitimate idea of what they want to do with their lives?

So that leads to an existential crisis

And you cry a lot.

And you start considering law school or medical school

Even though it's a lot of extra school.

Because of course you can be like Meredith Grey and Annalise Keating!

A world-class surgeon and a hardcore lawyer are pretty attainable jobs, right?

When you decide what to do when you graduate, it feels like a weight has lifted off your shoulders.

And you can breathe for once!

You can finally try to enjoy your last year, while fitting in homework and studying,

I mean, you have to make memories while you're trying to get some high-class job.

And ultimately, it was one of the best experiences of your life.

From random road trips and concerts to friendships and connections, the hard years were definitely worth it.

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.

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.
